    The bed linen was cheap man made and itchy. The rooms were too hot especially considering the nylon affinity. We had 3 couples staying. There was one bathroom that was ok and one that was really a box toilet with electric shower - really not good enough, especially considering the price. In the sitting room there was seating for 5 and the front patio sat 4. But we were still 6. What was maddening was that last year we stayed at another of your properties that exceeded expectations. We asked you which of the properties was better. I really don't get how this house is so desirable. Finally,I suggest that it is stated in your advertising, the steepness of the stairs in the house. For those with any mobility issues, it would be a challenge

    Thank you for your feedback. As agents, we source all the bedding for most of our properties. We confirm that the bedding is cotton mix (not nylon). We shall update the property details so guests are aware of the steeper stairs to the top floor of the property. We are disappointed to hear you found the beds uncomfortable as we have not had a comment of this nature in the past, however we understand that the comfort of beds is very much a personal thing. The owners will look into the squeakiness of the beds. The photos of the property on our website give an accurate view of the accommodation at Middle Watch and the size and nature of the rooms in the property are clearly visible from the photos and the descriptions so we were surprised to hear that you were disappointed with the accommodation. We do hope that in spite of these issues, you had an enjoyable stay and we hope to welcome you back to the area soon. Response from the owner. Property Owner

About the location

DARTMOUTH

Totnes 12 miles.

Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon. It offers a stunning waterfront, ancient narrow streets lined with boutique shops, restaurants and art galleries plus many local events such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, along with the Dartmouth Food Festival held every October. There are many interesting cycling and walking routes around Dartmouth, including the South West Coast Path, the Dart Valley Trail and plenty of quiet country lanes. A trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway through picturesque countryside to Paignton is a must, and so is a boat trip across to Kingswear and on to Brixham, a pretty little harbour town. For those seeking some beach activities, there is a wide choice in the South Hams area such as Blue Flag Award winner Blackpool Sands, and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular and just a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.
