                                                                                                      Lovely, clean, comfortable and well-equipped house.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      Centrally situated within easy walking distance of shops, including Marks & Spencer's Local for food, and all the other goodies Dartmouth has to offer. Only negative is that access to the house is via a small lane (no parking but ok for off-loading and a quick level walk to municipal car park with a free parking permit provided by the property - so park your car and forget about it for your stay) with two flights of very uneven and steep steps to negotiate to get to the property. Definitely not suitable for anyone unsteady on their feet (for whatever reason!). We would definitely visit again.
