  • "Fantastic house with stunning views."

    Great location. Excellently equipped kitchen and good media facilities. We had a lovely holiday and would book this property again. Only improvements I’d suggest are fixing the slats on the beds in the smaller top floor room, more sun loungers with cushions, a barbecue and a welcome pack to give an overview of the property facilities.

  • "We had a Fantastic holiday and didn’t want to leave."

    I wish we could come back but know we won’t simply because, however fantastic it was, its simply not worth the money we paid. I can’t really fault anything but at that price we expected more luxury: No bbq, outdoor seat cushions but not matching, only 2 loungers for a house that sleeps 8 and the cushions were not correct for the loungers so didn’t fit . Initial impressions of the outside of the house aren’t particularly good just ok, very few coat hangers, no drawers in one bedroom. Nothing that spoilt the holiday but not luxury. It’s a very normal , practical house with a position that is fantastic but I can’t justify the cost for a view. Had to call the agents for a couple of minor issues and they were excellent and very prompt. It’s a wow view and an ok house and we had a great holiday. But it’s not priced right.

  • "The house did cost a lot of money and we did expect a little more."

    No BBQ,Outside furniture poor and very few seat cushions.The rest were filthy.No cushions at all for the 2 bed loungers.The front door kept getting stuck when opened. The cleanliness of the house was poor and sofas needed cleaning. The position,view and pool were excellent. Only one wardrobe in the whole house. No information re the area given by owner. No welcome info. We had a good time but the owner needs to improve things rather than relying on the location. Sorry Ro Hall

  • "It would be great if there was a BBQ available with the property."

    One of the single beds within the top floor bedroom needs slats replacing as these kept falling through. Apart from these minor points it was a great house and great trip and we would definitely revisit! The views are stunning and great location!

  • "Our stay was absolutely amazing!"

    We felt totally relaxed and enjoyed a week of luxury, spoilt for the most insane see views and heated swimming pool this property more than exceeded our expectations. One niggly issue we had was there wasn't enough storage for rubbish with only the one bin collection and we would have benefitted from at least 1 clean there was a lot of house work to do with all the cooking etc having to be done in the property due to covid.

The Dart Valley Trail is another great walking opportunity, offering the best of Devon’s coast and countryside, whilst the town of Darmouth is also nearby, offering a lovely leisurely afternoon of exploring and visiting the 14th century castle with views over the River Dart Estuary and Bayard's Cove Fort, as well as museums and art galleries to meander.
