    “Not clean enough for me, considering how you are pushing the fact due to covid your cleaning is spot on, sorry not this time.”

    I have never in all the years given you such a bad report.

    I have never in all the years given you such a bad report.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback, we take it very seriously and are sorry to hear this. Had you contacted us during your stay we would have happily arranged for the housekeeper to re-visit. We have brought this to the owner's attention and confirmed that there will be more attention to detail in the future. You will see from all previous feedback that this is a one-off comment and generally cleanliness is of an excellent standard. Aside from this we hope that you enjoyed your stay at Coach House Cottage. Owner relations

About the location


Dartmouth 4.8 miles

Strete is a village looking over Start Bay just south of Dartmouth. The hills and countryside that encircle the village to the west converge on the memorable coastline forming one of the most visually striking images in the South Hams. There is a post office and general store in the village along with a lovely church plus the well renowned Laughing Monk restaurant. There is a small community area where you can picnic and walk your dog with its wildlife section and notable views of Start Bay. A few short miles in either direction brings you to the magical crescent shaped family beach at Blackpool Sands and the three mile stretch of Slapton Sands. 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.
