    • “Mainstay is a first class holiday cottage. Really well designed and thought out. Very comfortable. Location is perfect for exploring Dartmouth and South Hams.”

    Mr Yates, London, December 2018

    • “A beautifully presented property making it a real home from home with lovely linens and bathroom luxuries just like a 5* hotel but with all the comforts and flexibility of self catering! Kingswear is a characterful, quintessentially Devon fishing village and so well placed for access to the equally charming but larger, Dartmouth. Lots to see and do and for visitors who enjoy beach holidays it offers easy access to prime beaches, or for Agatha Christe fans - a day out by steam train to Agatha Christie's home, "Greenways" and return by river cruise was a highlight of our stay. With advance planning it's possible to book a tour of the naval Dartmouth College. Mainstay is In all a location which offers something for all ages and interests. We will certainly be back!”

    Mr Spyer, San Roque, Cadiz, September 2018

    • “We loved our holiday accommodation! The photos represented it accurately, and the owners were lovely to speak to. The upper lounge/ diner/ kitchen was bright, light and airy, with a kitchen fully kitted out for any cooking needs. The bedrooms were clean and comfortable, with plenty of storage space for clothes, and good blinds to block out the early morning sunshine. Although it's near the ferry crossing and steam train station, these only added to the charm, therefore making it a really accessible spot for anyone wanting to cross to Dartmouth and get around. The views overlooked the harbour, with an everchanging scene of sky and activity. It was a perfect spot for visiting the area, and I can heartily recommend Mainstay.”

    Mrs Aldham, Manchester, August 2018

    • “The apartment was perfect cleanliness,location,facilities and had everything we needed home from home only down side was the parking we had to park at the very top of the hill not good if you're not steady on you're feet”

    Mrs Lickorish, Doncaster, June 2018

    • “Firstly I do not like being charged a booking fee - you never used to charge it. Secondly it was only after paying the final balance that we were informed that to park the car it would cost £6.40 a day! It makes the accommodation very expensive. Also had a problem getting the entry key code and had to make a number of calls. Previous holidays with you have been perfect, so we were very disappointed.”

    Mr Pritchard, Colchester, May 2018
