    “Constructive observations: Steps to the property are uneven and awkward for small children and anyone with mobility issues.”


    Not easy to access the garage due to scaffolding around property above obstructing the pathway (temporary closure notice posted on scaffold). Evidence of recent external building works resulted in us sweeping the lower garden to save walking a considerable amount of grit and dirt back inside the house (we didn’t use the upper garden). Not a major issue but at this price point I wouldn’t have expected to be having to do this. Concrete blocks left near front door (possibly leftover from scaffold) are a trip hazard and need removing. Rainwater down pipes need installing as without them there’s a bit of noise when raining due to splashing of water on to the paths. Privacy blind required in the en-suite. We couldn’t find a mat for the bath or shower; which would have been appreciated. Positive points: Incredible location. Beautiful property. Garage parking (we didn’t use our car once during our stay). We’d definitely stay here again!

About the location


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.
