About the property

Premium 5 bedroom property sleeping 14 people. Free extended checkout Sundays

Maypool is close to the best South Devon has to offer; Dartmouth, Dittisham, Totnes, Torbay. Family fun, fishing, water sports, crabbing, steam train, river cruises & walk to Agatha Christie's Greenway House. Try the cheese & wine made up-river at Sharpham, the very best local seafood al fresco at the Anchorstone Cafe, amazing fish & chips at Mitch Tonk's Rockfish or go upmarket to his Seahorse restaurant in Dartmouth. Don't miss the Ferry Boat Inn's famous 'Rock on the Beach' festival too.

Getting Around Without the Car:

• Take the steam train North to Torbay or South to Kingswear (and then Dartmouth). Greenway Halt station is a 10 minute walk down the lane http://www.dartmouthrailriver.co.uk/

• Take a ferry boat from Greenway Quay (less than 20 minute walk) across the river to Dittisham for the Anchorstone and the Ferry Boat Inn or up to Totnes / down to Dartmouth http://www.greenwayferry.co.uk/

Superb location and quality property

  • 5 of 5

We booked this for a 70th birthday family gathering and this property catered more than adequately for the varying ages . . from 2yrs up to 70. Very well presented and equipped house, more like staying in someone's home rather than a rented house and furnished to a high standard throughout . . spotless on arrival. Although close to Dartmouth, Brixham and Torbay, Maypool is a haven of tranquility and the views of the Dart estuary completed this perfect setting. Forget the car and follow the picturesque trail all the way to Dartmouth, scenic ferry from Dartmouth to Dittisham, delicious seafood at the Anchorstone Cafe at Dittisham, then ring the bell for the ferry to Greenway followed by an energetic walk up the hill back to Maypool. Sean the owner is very helpful.

Beautiful house for a special birthday celebration.

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely perfect for our group it was spotlessly clean, had all the kitchen equipment we needed and the space to let us feel relaxed. The views were simply lovely and the weather even jerks out for us making it the best weekend.

Beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a great stay in Devon. The owner, Sean, was very quick to reply to questions, and offer advice, and easily contactable for any queries. Really friendly and helpful. The house itself is beautiful, and had all we needed.

Location is great and we did not need to use cars at all. One day walking to Kingswear and Dartmouth via ferry and home on steam train, and 2nd day walking to Greenways. Totally relaxing and lovely.

Dartmouth Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Booked for a family Christmas, grandparents, parents and 6 grandchildren and dog. We all loved the property and the area and made the most of our time there despite the very cold December weather.

The rooms are excellent, spacious and well appointed. The children loved the dormitory though the sleep time meant they were all a bit slow at breakfast!

Would definitely stay again.

Great for get togethers but Ryanair pricing!

  • 4 of 5

This is a great property for friends and family get togethers. It is well equipped and spacious. The 20 yr olds enjoyed swingball and table tennis and we managed to have a BBQ for many in a storm.

There are 4 double bedrooms and a 'children's attic room' which although it does have 6 beds are more suitable for 12 and under, not really adults.

Sean is a very responsive owner and helpful.

My only criticism is the 'Ryanair pricing system' where the advertised price is nowhere near the final price. We paid over £600 per night yet the property is advertised as 'from £329 per night'.

Also be careful what you initially input as we were charged a supplement per head for both nights even though only 2 people occupied the property on the 2nd night. We did raise this with the owner who said it was the 'Home Away system'

They are a good company to use but expensive.

Owner's Response: Hi Catherine, thanks for taking the time to review and also for your positive comments about the house. I'm sorry that there appeared to be some confusion over pricing. If I can clarify: You requested a refund for the final night of your stay as you were going to be a smaller party on that Sunday. The house can serve a wide number of people (from 1-16 guests) and many of our visitors do have smaller group numbers. As explained on email, the supplements per person are to cover additional costs for higher occupancy groups for the extra laundry and cleaning which your party had used prior to scaling down; HomeAway/Owners Direct as a platform doesn't have the functionality to vary a booking cost based on reducing occupancy; All costs are disclosed as standard by HomeAway before any guest can make a booking. At no point are any costs hidden from any reservation and at no point are they altered, what's presented on booking is what is charged. I hope this provides a suitable explanation. We're really pleased you enjoyed the house itself and also your stay there. All the best, Sean.
