This handsome three-storey Grade II listed Georgian house is situated near the historic Dartmouth creek from which ships departed for The Crusades.
With charming views of the River Dart and a welcoming and impressive interior, it is excellent family accommodation.
From the steep drive and parking area, leave your coats and boots in the porch and head into the comfortable sitting room with its cosy wood burning stove or the second sitting room, also with a wood burning stove, where you can watch the smart TV or gaze across the water.
Prepare family meals in the well equipped kitchen and enjoy them together around the table beside the wood burning stove in the dining room, where you can play the piano after dinner.
The bedrooms ramble over two upper floors, with a lovely room for the children on the top floor where they can play games and watch TV.
The terrace which stretches along the front of the house is a fine place to sit and share barbecues whilst admiring the view.
The children can play happily in the lower garden area whilst you sit peacefully above on the lawn.
You have everything on the doorstep since you can wander out to the restaurants, cafes, shops and galleries or take a tour of the Britannia Royal Naval College.
For a longer walk, a footpath leads through NT woodland to the South West Coast Path.
You can catch the ferry to pretty Kingswear or take a boat trip to the interesting town of Totnes, or even hire a boat to skipper yourself.
And, of course, there are lovely beaches all around the area.
Woodlands is a house with room for all the family in a bustling and vibrant area.

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.
