  • "Excellent facilities for a two person indulgent stay."

    Very well appointed in all respects. Location good for peace and quiet and visiting the locality though the very narrow lanes raise the stress levels. A comprehensive Welcome Pack inc chilled vino and fresh pastries was thoughtful, helpful and indeed, welcome. All in all a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Ideal for any couple wishing to reconnect…

  • "Lovely accommodation and Julian and Pippa are super hosts."

    Thank you for the welcome pack left for us in the fridge and the bread and cakes, all much appreciated. Only one suggestion to make. There is nowhere to store food, so a bread bin and a small cupboard over the work top would be very handy. The location although remote makes for a very peaceful and relaxing stay with a great choice of pubs and restaurants close by. Dartmouth is only a short drive away and for shopping there is a supermarket even nearer. We loved our week here so much we are hoping to return next year.

    Thanks Alan - lovely to meet you both. Look forward to welcoming you back next year. Property Owner

  • "Superb, comfortable holiday home for two people in a quiet rural area with amazing views across the Devon landscape."

    Don't be put off by the unusual location over a large double garage. This modern, beautifully fitted property really has everything you could wish for including an outside patio deck with hot tub. The owners could not have been more welcoming and the welcome goodies the best we have ever had. This light and airy property certainly lives up to its 5* rating. Highly recommended.

    Thanks guys - glad you enjoyed your stay, lovely to meet you and you’re welcome back anytime Property Owner

    Great welcome pack in accommodation, everything you could wish for, Dartmouth 10 drive away, perfect location. Enjoyed the total silence! Would thoroughly recommend. Mark & Michelle.

  • "Friendly hosts and one of the best welcome packs we have received."

    They were helpful in providing useful information on the local area. Also we appreciated the various supplies left throughout the apartment. The apartment was to a very high standard with high quality fixtures and fittings.The bathroom was amazing with good attention to detail. The location is good for lots of visits and whilst we knew the property was in a rural location we were not made aware of how narrow the lanes were until we received key collection details were received. We believe this should have been highlighted in the online details.

    Not a downside but a personal thing, I would probably need a washing machine if I was to stay longer than a few days...But an absolutely beautiful place to stay :)

  • "Our stay at Higher Gitcombe Lodge was a wonderful experience."

    The property is very well fitted out and in immaculate condition. The bathroom is so well designed and beautifully warm thanks to underfloor heating. The large bedroom has plenty of storage and is blessed with a large bed that is so comfortable. The excellent living room opens to a large balcony with wonderful views. Totally independent of the family home, the owners are available to give advice. We loved the visit and would recommend a stay at the lodge to anyone wishing to explore the Torquay, Buckfastleigh, Dartmouth and Totnes region.

    Thanks for the positive feedback Robert - lovely to meet you both and we look forward to welcoming you on your next visit. Property Owner

    ( Julian and Pippa) have done a fabulous job on this property and the local information they supplied was very good. As for contact for any inquires there was somebody always there. Also there supplied a list of local. Eateries and pub, walks. And the local golf course. This helped my wife and i no end. We would certainly return.

Located within the owner's grounds, the apartment is an annexe with contemporary, open-plan living for two guests to enjoy a break in the countryside and enjoying a private hot tub.

Find an off-road parking space on the gravelled Step inside to the open-plan living area where you will find a well-equipped kitchen area tucked away in the corner with an electric oven and hob, toaster and kettle to prepare home-cooked meals, as well as a dishwasher to quickly clean up and carry on with your holiday.

Plenty of light pours in from the Velux windows into the stylish space during the day, with dining seating for two to plan your adventures over a hot cup of coffee and breakfast.

Pull open the French doors on warmer evenings, and why not savour a glass of wine on your private terrace or enjoy the hot tub at sunset.

As the night draws in, settle into the sofa in the sitting area and choose from the selection of DVDs for evening entertainment.

A spacious, super-king-size bedroom awaits to catch your rest ready for a new day; plenty of storage space holds your belongings, whilst the TV is perfect for lazy mornings watching your favourite shows from under the sheets.

Take the short drive to Dartmouth and wander along the embankment of the River Dart, where guests can marvel at the many historic sites, such as Bayard's Cove Fort and Dartmouth Castle, or rent a boat along the picturesque harbour.

Be sure to venture along the coast of Little Dartmouth to the likes of Sugary Cove Beach and Compass Cove Beach for spectacular sea views and idyllic bays or further on is Blackpool Sands, a Blue Flag beach.

About the location


Totnes 12 miles.

Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon. It offers a stunning waterfront, ancient narrow streets lined with boutique shops, restaurants and art galleries plus many local events such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, along with the Dartmouth Food Festival held every October. There are many interesting cycling and walking routes around Dartmouth, including the South West Coast Path, the Dart Valley Trail and plenty of quiet country lanes. A trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway through picturesque countryside to Paignton is a must, and so is a boat trip across to Kingswear and on to Brixham, a pretty little harbour town. For those seeking some beach activities, there is a wide choice in the South Hams area such as Blue Flag Award winner Blackpool Sands, and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular and just a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.
