  • "Great house."

    Advertised with parking space for small car which nearly put us off renting it. In fact there was a very large parking space? Strange! Thought the welcome pack was a bit stingy! 2 weeks before we rented a villa through CVVILLAS. They provided bread, butter, milk, wine, endless dishwasher tabs., etc.. Concerning the latter you provided 2. 3 would have lasted the week. Food for thought. Otherwise all good apart from water leak in sitting room.

  • "Beautifully presented cottage with added extension."

    Lots of period features throughout, with a lovely modern kitchen and upper floor. Excellent quality mattress, and furnishings. Fantastic views across the River Dart, watching boats in a beautiful setting. Views from nearly every window. Due to age of the property, there are various different floor levels, which did catch me out unfortunately. Care is needed going up/ down stairs, and accessing the garden, which might be a concern if not agile. We would recommend a smaller car for easier access to this property. Dartmouth is a delightful, historic town and we enjoyed it, and our trips on the ferry to Kingswear very much.

  • "Yes, we were very blessed with the weather so that will colour my views, but I think this place is absolutely special."

    From the flag pole to the crowned prince frog, I adore this place, every nook & cranny. From the cutlery, crockery, artwork, views, furniture, garden and particularly the two viewing rooms. We have loved being here and don't really want to go home. Hopefully we will be back, thank you for the privilege.

  • "Steps down from parking, are challenging, steep and narrow, especially with baggage."

    Once we were settled, this became less of a worry. Well equipped kitchen, a delight to use. Perhaps we had to put the dishwasher on rather often because there were limited mugs? Views of the river were a constant delight.

  • "Property was absolutely stunning - everything was so comfortable and beautifully furnished with the kitchen equipped to an extremely high standard."

    The cottage is an absolute gem - so many different places to sit and see the wonderful view of the Dart. We loved our stay here and would definitely come again.

The property

Perched in a fantastic location overlooking the River Dart on the outskirts of Dartmouth near the mouth of the river is Bunbury House.

This fabulous and historic holiday home benefits from a welcoming interior which has been thoughtfully renovated, successfully melding original, character features like exposed beams with contemporary appliances and stylish decor, an off-road parking space, breath-taking views from multiple rooms of the River Dart and Kingswear, a close proximity to the town's amenities and to the fun-filled Dartmoor National Park; the perfect setting for families or friends looking to explore Devon.

Cross the threshold into your new home from home and unwind by flicking on the Smart TV and sinking into the plush corner sofa before stepping through to the fully-equipped kitchen to rustle up tasty meals.

Enjoy your culinary creations at the spacious dining table or step outside to the side patio where you can dine alfresco with beautiful views and the soothing sound of the flowing river.

On colder evenings, the house offers a conservatory and first-floor sitting room where the views can still be admired from the warmth with a glass of wine in hand.

Before bed, wash off the day in either of the two shower rooms before choosing between a king-size with en-suite bathroom, a large single or twin to catch up on some sleep.

Follow the curve of the river to discover quaint beaches like Sugary Cove and Compass Cove, while away warmer days here, admiring the picturesque views over the English Channel while the kids splash around in the sea.

The fantastic, 630-mile long South West Coast path also runs through the area providing keen ramblers with endless opportunities to explore charming seaside towns dotted along the route.

A short stroll in the other direction takes you into the heart of Dartmouth which benefits from an excellent selection of restaurants, pubs and take-aways offering delicious food, wine and ales.

Explore the narrow streets around the harbour where you’ll find boutique shops, art galleries, river boat trips and much more.

The town is also well provided with convenience stores - the Co-op, M&S Food and Sainsburys are easily accessible for your everyday needs.

Notable nearby attractions include Dartmouth Castle, Agatha Christie’s former home Greenway and the Brixham Battery; popular attractions in the market town of Totnes, the popular Paignton and the wonder Dartmoor National Park are easily accessible by car.

All this and more awaits at Bunbury House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
