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.


Trust Greenway and Coleton Fishacre, 5 and 8 miles.
