    1) The accommodation was excellent. Everyone had plenty of space everywhere...critically so in the bedrooms and the kitchen. 2) The furniture was good with plenty of big comfortable sofas, and with excellent breakfast and dining tables. 3) The pool was bigger and better than the photos suggested. Our grand-children aged 7 and 9 are keen swimmers and were in the pool two or three times a day. 4) The view of the Dart estuary is breath-taking. 5) A nit-picker might make some minor criticisms, but we would not like to spoil our over-whelming impression which is that Bight Boathouse is an amazing place which we all loved.

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. 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 Blackpool Sands and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular sandy beaches are a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.
