  • "We had a wonderful stay in Ferry View."

    The flat is roomy, comfortable and very clean. It was also an easy short walk to the many facilities of Dartmouth.

  • "We love to stay at Ferry View as it is perfect in every way for us."

    The views are stunning, the apartment is well equipped and very comfortable, and the location is exactly where we want to be in the area.

  • "Wonderful accommodation."

    We've been twice now and have just booked a 3rd visit.

  • "We had a great stay."

    The apartment has an amazing view of the river and is well equipped with modern, comfortable furnishings. The weather was a bit mixed and this meant we had to stay in a little more than normal, but we had a nice big TV with Netflix so was no problem. The apartment is in a fantastic location and Dartmouth is beautiful - we would recommend the round robin boat and steam train trip and a walk to Blackpool Sands - stop off at the Castle and get the bus back - amazing views all the way!

  • "Ferry View has had a lovely upgrade since we were last there, with a new kitchen, balcony and furnishings."

    It has always been our favourite place to stay in Dartmouth. The improvements are perfect, although the sofa is a little small in the lounge. Hopefully the master bed will be next for an upgrade as it is a little lumpy which gets tiresome after a couple of nights. It's still a lovely and relaxing place to stay though, with a perfect view of the river and across to Kingswear. It is a great location for visiting Dartmouth and feels like home from home after so many visits.

    One minor problem dealt with quickly and efficiently. The cleaners even helped us with the luggage up the steps. Much appreciated.

  • "Dishwasher was not fixed to unit properly."

    Needed a thorough clean. Radiator in lounge not hot enough. Everything else was very good.

  • "The property was just as good as the listing said it would be."

    The only very minor issue we had was with the water which on a couple of occasions failed to run, as in, no water from the taps. This would not prevent me from booking this property again.

  • "A wonderful week spent at Ferry View."

    The view from the balcony in the lounge is great and certainly kept our 1 year old entertained watching all the boats on the river! It’s a really spacious apartment with less than a 5 min walk into the town centre. Our only criticism would be the mattress in the master bedroom is quite uncomfortable, feels like it needs replacing. Couldn’t recommend this property enough, we’ll definitely be returning.

    It was bigger than expected from the photos and it did have wifi which was the best thing since we have teens!

  • "We arrived in the dark and with old people with us found the steps down in darkness extremely difficult…."

    No street light on the bend in steps. In daylight no problem. Perhaps advise to take torch if dark arrival. Otherwise a great place to stay. Thanks.

  • "As always we had a lovely holiday staying at Ferry View and we were pleased that the standard hasn't slipped from the previous owners."

    Spotlessly clean, well-stocked kitchen and lovely furnishings etc. We could have done with an oven glove as I had to use a towel which got a bit marked. Other than that, we loved it as usual and have booked for next year.

  • "Whilst the apartment itself was good and well positioned we were disappointed with what was provided: 1 toilet roll per toilet 3 dishwasher tablets 1 spare bin bag No toilet cleaner If this is ‘company policy’ then you should let people know in advance so that they can come prepared."

    Also it was extremely cold on arrival and the heating instructions were not easy to follow We have rented many apartments and cottages over the years and have never had to raise such issues before

  • "Lovely property, good location and great view."

    Very spacious and well equipped. There are uneven steps to negotiate so beware of that but we planned what we needed for the day to avoid too many trips up and down. Parking on the street was ok off season but is at a premium in Dartmouth. Car park permit is a 10 minute walk away.

  • "A very comfortable and cosy apartment with lovely views across the river."

    The apartment was well equipped and lacked for nothing. The sofa and the beds we’re comfortable and the whole place was spotless. The car parking was a fair way from the building (near the higher ferry). This wasn’t an issue for us as we didn’t have any rain but would have be an issue if we had. It was difficult to find a space on the road to load/unload - in January it wasn’t a problem but during busy periods it might be more difficult. The steps down to the property are steep and uneven so may prove a challenge to some people. That said it was great to be so close to town, but it was still peaceful and relaxing.

  • "This was our second time at Ferry View and it didn’t disappoint."

    Well equipped, warm, cosy and with a lovely view. A few steps to negotiate which don’t get any easier for us as we get older but that’s Dartmouth for you and …… despite this, we will keep coming to this lovely town and area of national beauty

    ) A really relaxing stay in a comfortable apartment with a good level of equipment only a few minutes walk to the lower ferry, pubs and town. Enjoyed lazing in bed or having a drink on the balcony while watching the boats go by.

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.
