Excellent accommodation in beautiful location

5 of 5
Very high quality place to stay in the perfect location for exploring South Devon. Easy access to Dartmouth for restaurants, shops and the historic estuary. We recommend the nearby coast path walks and staying at Woodside View!

Great location

5 of 5
Very happy stay. Ideal location, but no good for very old or infirm due to the steps. Fantastic views.
