    • “A truly fabulous and luxurious house, set in a stunning location just a 10 minute walk into Dartmouth. Amazing views and the house caters for everything you need for a holiday. We were a party of 12, but the house is large enough to not feel cramped, lovely high ceilings and wide doors, all the features of a Georgian house so very homely but cool in the hot weather. We were fortunate enough to have fantastic weather so used the outside terrace every day. If we didn’t want to do the walk into town, there are several nice coves around the castle for both swimming and crabbing. Parking will easily take 6 cars with is a bonus given the parking in general is an issue in Dartmouth. Really comfortable and luxurious beds are a must on holiday and this property didn’t let us down, in fact I cannot think of anything negative about our stay here and would highly recommend. A fantastic week for our 3 families from Suffolk, Essex and New Zealand to spend quality time together in the most beautiful part of Devon.”

    • “Lovely house but need to be aware of the steepness of the gardens and drive, unsuitable for toddlers and people unsteady on their feet.”

    Mrs Bannister, Leeds, September 2018

    • “This was a great house for the size of our group (12). On the whole a great experience. Just a couple of things though - one of the double beds had a very old mattress with springs literally raising out of it so made for a very uncomfortable and sleep disturbed night for the week. Thankfully my husband and I had chosen this room so the other members of the family didn’t get it. The tumble dryer was broken so we were unable to use it for the whole week. We did need to do a few washes so thankfully found a radiator in a bathroom that could be turned on intermittently when we needed items to dry. Elaine and her husband did come over and did try to fix it which we were grateful for. They also looked at couple of the gas rings that weren’t working. One member of the family nearly got locked in a bathroom one night as the door handle came off.. this happened to a couple of other doors too. We did have a lovely family time in this amazing house. Just thought it helpful for you to know these few things. Elaine and her husband were very friendly and have kindly let us know about items we’ve left too! In answer to the next question- Happy for you to publish if you want to.”

    Mrs Chare, GODALMING, August 2018

    • “The property is in a lovely quiet spot, with great views (including some of the bay), and within walking distance of the town. Very spacious, and exceedingly well equipped. It would be very easy to repeat our visit in the future.”

    Mr Walker, LEICESTER, August 2018

    • “This was my first time booking a holiday via Helpful Holidays and we couldn't have been more thrilled with Woodlands. An imposing Georgian house, fully equipped, very luxurious, (especially the bedding), it was more than home from home. We were 3 family's totallying 12 people but the house is large enough to not feel on top of each other, with 3 living rooms and the kitchen on the ground floor as well as the outside terrace which we spent many hours sitting out looking at the amazing view. The games room on the top floor was a hit for the younger members of our party however as we were lucky enough to have such amazing weather we didn't really make the best use of the inside space, however if the weather had been more challanging then you could easily lose a few hours here. The area is lovely and quiet and took us around 10 minutes to walk into the main town, a pleasant walk but not for the fainthearted as it is quite steep on the walk home, but worth it for the views from both both the balcony and the main windows in the house. Am already looking at returning for our next large family get together in 18 months time as this really is a fantastic house and unusual as we have found that many houses that accommodate large numbers are often in rural areas, and Dartmouth really has everything you need for all ages.”

    Reed, Colchester, July 2018

    • “Character property that had excellent facilities. Lots of extra touches that made it feel very homely. Kitchen equipment of a very good standard that made catering for a large group much easier. The games room a big hit with all ages!”

    Mr & Mrs Duckworth, Westcliff-on-Sea, July 2018

    • “Great location overlooking the river Dart and a short walk away from the centre of Dartmouth. Woodlands house was stunning, my family were over the moon with how wonderful this house was. We had 14 of us staying at Woodlands for the week but it felt so spacious it didn’t feel like we were on top of each other. There is nothing bad I could say about this place and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Thank you for a lovely, enchanting and fabulous week.”

    Miss Higgins, Cambridge, June 2018

    • “A perfect house in a great location with lovely walks and close by to high quality local amenities saving us having to drive everywhere. Owners/house keepers were extremely thoughtful and nothing was a problem. Our large and extended families have stayed in many holiday houses over the years and Woodlands rates at the very top of properties for our needs.”

    Mrs Martin, Aylesford, April 2018

    • “Brilliant week away in Dartmouth, great location and fantastic house. Goof for walks into Dartmouth and surrounding area. Cosy and comfortable house with everything you needed for a fun weeks stay. Plenty of space for all 12 of us and the kids loved the chill room in the top floor, would never know there were 6 kids in the house, plenty of peace and quiet for the parents! Comfy beds, good sized rooms, good bathrooms, very clean and well equipped home, thank you.”

    Mrs Moon, Eastleigh, March 2018

Regional Information

DARTMOUTH 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.
