    We stayed at Christmas and had a very special time with 10 of us aged 87 to 12. It was brilliantly equipped ( kitchen had everything you would needs and lots of supplies of plates, bowls, glasses etc..) , extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable. Lots of space for children and adults and the games room was a real plus for the teenagers. Elaine was also brilliant at communicating with us prior to our stay and responding to a couple of a queries we had. Two points to feedback are that there were a number of lightbulbs in the bathrooms that didn't work and the central heating temperature and times could not be controlled by the guests- this meant the house was often cold. We recognise it was an old property, which we loved in terms of character, but think the heating control should be accessible by the guests. We would highly recommend Woodlands for a large group or family stay in Devon.

About the location


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, along with the Dartmouth Food Festival held every October. 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 Blue Flag Award winner Blackpool Sands, and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular and just a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.
