    • “Fantastic accommodation, beautiful setting, but should warn people you do need a 4x4 if you are not that mobile.”

    Mrs Benson, Stancombe, Dursley, October 2018

    • “The cottage is an amazing place to spend a week. We have already booked for a return visit.”

    Mrs Skermer, Alfreton, September 2018

    • “Fabulous location with excellent accommodation. Clarification needs to be made regarding accessibility as holiday makers need to understand that it is not a case of being able to park near the boathouse there is a hilly walk involved and luggage needs to be brought down by the farm manager.”

    Ms Erwood, FLEET, September 2018

    • “If you like peace, quiet and tranquility, watching the changes in the river and the wild life, jumping salmon, trout and the eating frenzy when the little fish are forced to the surface, this is the place for you. The boathouse is well appointed, clean. Walks around the estate (working farm) including a vine yard and oyster farm (low tide) added to the experience. Charlie and Becky were excellent hosts, thank you.”

    Mr Houghton, WESTBURY, August 2018

    • “Amazing place, loved every minute!”

    Mr Turner, EXMOUTH, May 2018

    • “The holiday was fantastic, lovely views, starry skies. Wonderful location. The only comments we have is that the hobb is not very user friendly, lots of grumbling and puffing to try and get it to work. Suggestion would be to have a simpler hobb that is idiot proof. Would be a nice idea to have a astrological telescope as the night skies were amazing. We have already booked again for next year.”

    Mrs Dewberry, Chertsey, May 2018

The Property

About 1¼ miles from Stoke Gabriel, on the same estate as Sandridge Barton, a boathouse built in 1760 as a bathing house in one of the most secluded, private, romantic settings in south Devon. For that privacy you walk 600 yards down a gentle valley, over fields and through woods, to the boathouse, or you can be taken with your luggage by Landrover vehicle to the top of 71 steps down to the boathouse. With thick woods behind, the boathouse is on the water's edge where the Dart meanders between Stoke Gabriel and Dittisham and is surrounded by a wide, covered balcony. Much birdlife, fishing/boating. The only sounds are lapping water and wind in the trees. Inside, extremely beautiful and comfortable. A haven from almost everything. Outside stairs to balcony and front door. Hall to lovely, large, light (water reflecting on the ceiling), oak-floored living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker, TV/DVD) with fireplace (woodburner), dining table for 4 (window seat) and floor-to-ceiling French windows stretching the width of the boathouse; these fold back on themselves, the room opening to the balcony (furniture); downstairs shower-room (suite). Upstairs, two bedrooms, both carpeted, beams, ceilings to the apex - a double (6' bed) with en suite bathroom (suite with power-shower) and French windows to small balcony; and a pretty twin. Washer-drier and freezer. Arrival before 6pm in winter. Don’t forget your torch - and binoculars. A marvellous, unique, magical place.

Stoke Gabriel: pretty and beautifully situated village (three pubs, PO, shops, restaurant, medieval church) sloping to a little quay (good crabbing) and creek (boats) off the River Dart estuary. Sandy beaches at Torbay, and Totnes (attractive old town on the Dart), each 4 miles. Brixham, good golf (Churston) and car ferry to Dartmouth (town), 5 miles. Nat. Trust Greenway and Coleton Fishacre, 5 and 8 miles.
