    “Lovely place to stay, very comfortable and a great location.”

    We had a lovely relaxing time and really enjoyed ourselves. A couple of things to note/feedback - nothing major, but may help future guests. - Car parking: There are 2 public car parks nearby, one by the passenger ferry behind the station that is 2 minutes away but limited spaces. Or 5 minutes walk approx along the road at the marina. Download the Ringo app to make paying/extending time easier, but it is approx. £8 per day. - Kitchen: there was only one tea towel provided and no oven ...

Download the Ringo app to make paying/extending time easier, but it is approx. £8 per day. - Kitchen: there was only one tea towel provided and no oven mitt, so the one tea towel we had was used for both drying and taking hot trays etc out the oven, which wasn't ideal. Also take some spare dishwasher tablets and bin bags, only a couple are provided for the week. Ferry crossing - the car ferry is quicker than the passenger ferry and takes foot passengers. Both are the same price too.

    Thank you very much for your response. We do state that parking is around £55 for the week. We have asked for more tea towels as indeed one is completely insufficient (thank you for highlighting this) There are however oven gloves in the drawer..?? As it is self catering we do provide a limited amount basics, but I’m afraid you do need to supply the rest. We will however take on board the comments ref dishwasher tablets and have increased this 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.
