  • “Almost impossible to contact the local office by telephone as the local area dialing code links to your national call centre and a very, very, long wait.”

    If I'd needed to contact them to say we were delayed and unable to be in the office for the key during office hours (times not stated)...... We would have had to sleep in the car!

    If I'd needed to contact them to say we were delayed and unable to be in the office for the key during office hours (times not stated)...... We would have had to sleep in the car! Local office staff all very cheerful, friendly and helpful. House is lovely and my only gripe would be the absence of thick bin bags, advertised on several laminated notices and adhered to worktops. Would I stay at Blackgate again?Oh, yes. I'd love to live in the property and spend all my time admiring the views.

    - Mr Lowe, July 2021

    Thank you for your feedback we are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Blackgate, and that you would like to return. We do make a courtesy call to all guests that have not arrived before the office is due to close to let them know how to collect their keys, we would also send an email with the information. We look forward to welcoming you back to Dartmouth. Owner relations

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.
