    “Yes, although the cottage did have stunning views and was very comfortable, it does have issues that need to be made more clear; steps - it’s not the number that’s an issue it’s the steepness and unevenness of them, also that fact that the cottage is half up a very narrow passageway so you need carry luggage either up or down the entrance.”

    Secondly ; the outside spaces aren’t secure and the main one is slightly detached from the cottage up steep steps. Thirdly; the parking ; it’s not just that the garage is small but it’s the access to it is up extremely narrow and twisting roads that are very difficult to navigate unless you have a fairly small car. However the biggest issue was the lack of cleanliness upon our arrival- the kitchen and living areas were not clean at all; greasy fingers prints all over the windows, coffee table filthy , information book dirty , kitchen surfaces not wiped clean and food debris in sink/drainer. We spent well over an hour cleaning everything with antibacterial spray, very disappointing in current circumstances and after waiting until 5 to get into the cottage. On a positive Sykes did respond quickly when contacted about the cleaning which was good.

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.

Please note there are 43 steps down from the garage in Above Town to the property. Access from Newcomen Road is up 43 steps. Steps are steep in places and uneven.

The garage is not suitable for 4x4 or large car.

Above town is a narrow road that runs 'above' and parellel to the River Dart. Access to Above Town is via a steep road.

Please note the property accepts two well behaved dogs.

Please bring a torch if arriving at night.
