Dart Marina is a stunning development on the edge of the River Dart in Dartmouth, one of the West Country's most sought after locations.

Picturesque Dartmouth, with its pretty, narrow streets offering art galleries, tea rooms and individual shops, is just a short, flat walk along the embankment and the town is gaining a reputation for its great choice of places to eat, with well known chefs in several restaurants and The River Restaurant at the Dart Marina Hotel close by.  Just outside the town is an excellent golf course and the stunning unspoilt beaches and coastal paths of Start Bay, including the Blue Flag award winning Blackpool Sands, are just a 10 minute drive away.

“We were looking for a property at very short notice and the staff, particularly Rebecca, responded in a very helpful manner and clearly were totally familiar with the properties which they managed. Unlike some other agencies, they did not regard either their customers or their properties as just numbers on a computer screen! A very personal service.

We are exremely grateful to them and shall certainly use them again.”

Coast & Country Cottages' reply:

“Diddly Squat was well appointed, clean and tidy. A great escape with everything in the apartment you would need for a self-catering home from home stay.
Great location just metres from the waters edge and a short walk to the centre of Dartmouth.”

“appartment was beautifully furnished and decorated to a high standard. it's not directly on the river dart so views are limited. only negative points are the appartment overlooks the service drive for the hotel so deliveries arrive most mornings from 7 onwards-laundry, food services, bin men etc. we also would have liked more holiday info in there-a map, nearby beaches, walks, etc. we collected brochures from the tourist information and left them for the next guests. no info on wifi either, there didn't appear to be any unless you paid to use the hotel's. great to stay in Dartmouth centre tho, with bars and restaurants, and use of the gym and pool was good.”
