Great location close to the town centre!

4 of 5
Great location close to the town centre. The house was clean and tidy with plenty of room for three teenage children and a dog. The children enjoyed the downstairs TV room. Dartmouth is very dog friendly with dogs being allowed in many of the shops and pubs. Whilst the house does not have its own parking space, free parking was available in the nearby Market Square. The parking permit was useful for Market Days.
