The property was warm,clean and well presented and had everything we needed. Having three bath/ shower rooms worked really well for our group. The location was perfect for us being midway between the castle and the centre of town felt like the best of both worlds. We had travelled in two cars so used the allocated parking but had no trouble finding visitor parking for the second car. We enjoyed the beautiful walks to and around the castle with the dog and also found the walk to and from the centre of Dartmouth with it's many pubs and restaurants to be easy and very pleasant. A fabulous week in a fabulous property.

Theresa and Simon couldn't have been more helpful. The apartment is really well decorated, had everything we could possibly need and wonderful views. The parking space was a real bonus for Dartmouth too. Only a short walk down into the town. So many wonderful places to visit nearby - we didn't want to leave. We look forward to returning in the future.

Our first day was sunny and very windy. We took a lovely coastal road trip to Salcombe and enjoyed a long coastal walk. It was stunning. We enjoyed eating at the Boyard Cove Inn with live music in Dartmouth as recommended by Jane and Mark, we ate fresh Hake at Rockfish which was lovely. Lovely beer too. We went for a lovely run through the woods and along the railway line. We had a nice day in Paignton travelling via the steam train. One of my favourite things was seeing Sammy the Seal. I named him. There was a seal in the water and every day except the last day we were lucky enough to see his head pop up above the water. Location perfect, views to die for, everything you need is right there and it really was idyllic. Thank you Jane and Mark for a lovely stay
