  • "What an amazing place to stay!"

    Beautiful home, facilities to a very high specification. A lovely, quiet, beautiful location too Everywhere was spotlessly clean. I think this was one of the best places I have stayed and would not hesitate to return.

  • "This small holiday development (35 properties) seemed pretty upmarket to us."

    More so than we were expecting. All the properties, rented or owned were good quality and well maintained, with common areas tastefully planted with attractive shrubs etc. We would definitely recommend this property.

  • "The toilet switch was half missing as has been scheduled to be replaced before the next party arrive, this was with our blessing as they advised it could be done sooner if it was a problem."

    The metal rivit holding the tongs together at the pivot was missing and couldn't be used but we founs a way around it. I also asked about a spatular as there wasn't one in the appartment and was told one should be there. This I suspect will be replaced in due course. The support staff were kind and nothing was too much trouble. The complimentary bottle of wine was well received and duly emptied between the 3 of us. The area was quiet and peaceful making for a relaxing break. It was also central to many places we tended to visit whilst in the area. I would heartily recommend this as a place to stay and look forward to returning at some point in the future.

  • "The cottage was so lovely, it was situated in a lovely small picturesque development, surrounded by fields."

    Was only a short drive into town and close to a pub where they do good food and a nice play area for the kids. My only negative feedback would be that we didn’t realise it had an mezzanine in the cottage so wasn’t ideal with two small children, but we made it work. It also gets extremely hot in the cottage especially upstairs so would of been nice to of had a couple of fans available.

  • "Very pleasant stay cottage appeared to be well looked after and clean."

    The site as a whole looked well maintained. The welcome bottle of wine went down well after a long drive to get here. We had only visited Dartmouth on a day visit when staying in Brixham a few years ago so enjoyed having more time to look around. We will certainly visit again.

  • "Hello Sykes, I’ve already filled out one of these, has it been lost?"

    As I already stated when we arrived the girl at reception told us that there had been a serious leak in the bathroom and therefore damp. I should have asked to see the cottage. My big mistake!!! We should have been given alternative accommodation as there was no shortage of available cottages. Most were empty whilst we were there. There no one at reception to complain to and the overwhelming smell of damp was truly awful. It was a spoilt holiday!

    Thank you for your feedback. We’re sorry to read that the damage from the leak had affected your holiday, however both ourselves and the owner of the property were reluctant to cancel your booking at such short notice due to the lack of availability at this time in the area; especially given the anticipation of long-awaited holidays. All the properties on Hillfield are privately owned with only some of them being rented, which would explain the available cottages you have mentioned. Our reception at Hillfield Village is manned Thursday-Saturday however we can be reached by phone or via email at any time and it is unfortunate that you did not contact us during your stay as we would have been able to provide some assistance. Please be assured that the owners are currently in the process of having the affected areas rectified Many thanks again for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "The cottage wasn't as clean as on previous visit."

    In fact the first thing we had to do was clean the windows. Getting two people through a hot shower was a challenge, even with the booster switch.

    Thank you for your review of 2 Keeper’s Cottage. I am sorry to hear your comments regarding the cleanliness of the property. I have passed these comments on to our Housekeeping Manager who will ensure further training is given where needed. Following your comments the hot water system has been investigated and found to be working as it should. Unfortunately the Keepers Cottages have a small hot water tank that once drained (by having a long shower or bath) do take a while to refill, even after pressing the boost button. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused your party. We hope that despite these issues you enjoyed your time at Hillfield Village. Property Owner

  • "Overall the accommodation was nice and staff were helpful."

    We were disappointed that the pool and playground were out of action and looked like they had been disused all year. There were problems when we were there that did impact our holiday. On the first day the hot water ran out and there were no instructions of how to get more hot water. This meant we could not get showers after the beach so could not eat out as intended. The staff at coast and country tried to help Over the phone but could not locate instructions for the immersion heater, and the caretaker called to advise us the following day. There should be instructions in the property for this as the caretaker said it happens a lot as water capacity is low. On the 3rd day the en-suite toilet leaked overnight and could not be fixed, therefore for half the holiday we only had one toilet in use. I feel I deserve some compensation for this inconvenience as I had reduced facilities for half my holidays. Overall we enjoyed our holiday and would return here when the pool reopens.

  • "We have stayed at 2 Keepers Cottage several times and have thoroughly enjoyed it and in December however this time, it was clear as we entered the property that it had not been used for a while as it smelt a little musty."

    It would also have helped if the heating had been turned on to warm the cottage through as it did take a while for the heaters to "kick in". Apart from that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hillfield as always.

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.
