Stylish and contemporary, the property is finished to an exceptional standard, with the main living accommodation on the upper level to make the most of the water views. Guests have complimentary use of the Dart Marina Health Spa, with indoor swimming pool, steam room, gym and Jacuzzi.  Please note that wireless broadband access is provided by a third party and see full description for details.

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.
