The location was perfect, being a hop and a skip to either of the passenger ferry or lower ferry, with good walks either up the river or along the headland. The heritage railway terminus is right underneath the front windows and the occasional steam train provided additional atmosphere to an already picturesque setting. We celebrated New Year's Eve watching the firework display over the Dart, and spent the next day reading in the upper loft in the dimming evening light. It could not have been more Hygge. The flat itself was great, with the only observation being that one of the bunk beds is a bit tight on length for our teenagers.

It is stocked with everything you could wish for, we even cooked a full roast on New Year's Day!! Everything is clean and tidy, was lovely and warm with the new boiler doing its job... really enjoyed it here! Sharon was brilliant throughout too... Great communications, made it easy and pleasant from the moment we started emailing. Thank you again, we will definitely be back 👍👍
