    “This is an exceptional place to stay - so incredibly comfortable, lots of space, big squishy sofas, very well equipped kitchen, lovely bedrooms and bathrooms and in a fabulous location, just off the busy-ness of lovely Dartmouth but perfectly placed to step straight onto the SW coast path, great little beach for a very chilly (January) dip and surrounded by woodland and green space - we heard a tawny owl on our first evening almost as soon as we stepped out of the car, then throughout each of the three nights we were there, plus the call of a buzzard regularly over the weekend.”

    This is the perfect space for a large group of friends to have some easy comfortable time out together!

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. 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. A relaxing location in South Devon.

Note: The owners occasionally use a small cottage attached to the side of house (will be occupied October to April).
Note: Arrival after 4pm.
Note: The garden is steep and sloping with an unfenced stream. Children and pets should be supervised.
Note: No fireworks please.
