Easter 2018

4 of 5
We love Dartmouth - especially the harbour views. This property is perfectly located for us as a family. Kids, adults and grandparents all enjoyed their stay. Easy walking access to town for grandparents and crap fishing across the road for the kids. Plenty of space to spread out - warm and efficient central heating and good bathrooms. Could do with a few hooks to hang coats on the ground floor but other than that excellent.

Very comfortable and well equipped house right on the waterfront with stunning views

4 of 5
We enjoyed our short break very much. It was perfect for our family get together. Spacious, comfortable and well equipped. It was lovely to be right on the waterfront and enjoy the stunning views of the River Dart. You get used to the sound of the ferry coming in next to the house. I enjoyed the short ferry trips back and forth between Kingswear and Dartmouth. Lots to do and places to visit if you desire. The owner Claire was very helpful throughout the booking and leading up to our stay providing us with some helpful information prior to our stay. Would recommend.
