A great stay in Dartmouth
An excellent and interesting house in superb location. Very well maintained. Our family had a most enjoyable holiday and we look forward to returning.
What a stunning view!!
We have just returned from an absolutely fantastic holiday at The Boathouse. We stayed over new year and there were 8 of us with ages ranging from 3 to 75. The house is amazing, one of the best we’ve ever stayed in and we go away every year. Yes there are a lot of steps down to the property (and back up!) but it is so worth it, the views from every room especially the lounge are breathtaking! It’s not an exaggeration, we could sit at those windows and look out all day long! On our last day we even saw 4 dolphins swim by the house, it was fantastic! The house is fully equipped, we made some big meals and we had everything we needed. You can tell it’s someone’s treasured home and not just a holiday let. We felt so relaxed there and didn’t want to leave, so much so that we asked the owner if we could stay an extra 2 nights, it was worth the extra money! The owners are very friendly and helpful, we had a couple of queries when we arrived and they were both available to call. Dartmouth is lovely and has so many cafes, pubs, restaurants to choose from. We have two small children and easily found places to go for food or just a drink. Lots of nice shops. We will definitely be returning to The Boathouse, we miss it already!
Along the coast are some splendid beaches, including Blackpool Sands, and excellent walks on the South West Coastal Path.
Located on the banks of the River Dart and only a short walk from the town and local attractions and amenities.
Dartmouth is in an area of outstanding natural beauty in South Devon situated at the mouth of the River Dart which is one of the most spectacular estuaries in Europe. It has a mild climate & is beautiful throughout the year. The town is a short walk from The Boathouse & is one of the most picturesque interesting towns in the West Country, steeped in history.
The ancient port of Dartmouth enjoys a charming mix of old buildings, including the 17th-century Butterwalk (with museum), a splendid castle (English Heritage) set on the rocks at the river entrance, and regular ferries across to Kingswear.
The river is thronged with pleasure craft and yachts, and offers good sailing, as well as cruises up to Totnes, taking in the beautiful scenery of the wooded valley. Totnes is a charming town with a wealth of ancient buildings, as well as good shopping for antiques, crafts and gifts, and an Elizabethan Tuesday market. From Dartmouth the steam railway runs along the coast to the lively seaside resort of Paignton. Local places of interest include Coleton Fishacre (NT), Bowden House, the Butterfly Farm near Buckfastleigh, and Paignton Zoo.
