    “After a difficult cross country journey to Dartmouth, trying to find the office, house and car park, we then couldn’t get any heat on.”

    I had mentioned it to someone at the office, by phone as we were late arriving, because heating issues had already been stated in a review. She assured me that it had been resolved, but clearly it hadn’t. After eventually locating the boiler, we had to phone for assistance as there was no pressure. It took a very long time to speak to someone, but a man then quickly arrived, fixed the problem and showed us how to control the heating.The noisy plumbing also needs to be addressed. There were ...

    I had mentioned it to someone at the office, by phone as we were late arriving, because heating issues had already been stated in a review. She assured me that it had been resolved, but clearly it hadn’t. After eventually locating the boiler, we had to phone for assistance as there was no pressure. It took a very long time to speak to someone, but a man then quickly arrived, fixed the problem and showed us how to control the heating.The noisy plumbing also needs to be addressed. There were stacks of cushions which some people might appreciate, but were a nuisance to us. My husband and I slept in the front bedroom the first couple of nights, but we moved to the back bedroom due to the smell of the bed and outside lights waking up the birds during the night. Unfortunately, there was no improvement with the smell and the bed was too hard for our liking. Otherwise, everything we needed was there, plus outside facilities which we didn’t use and pretty Christmas decorations. We had a lovely stay overall, but we would not come again due to hiking up and down hills and steps. It would be beautiful in summer, but no doubt packed with visitors too!

The property

Harbour Heights is a tastefully presented, very well equipped terraced house in Dartmouth, with delightful panoramic views across the river and out to sea from the lounge and garden/decking to the rear.

New for 2023 is an extensively enhanced garden with a wonderful new garden studio room now providing additional space to relax and enjoy the panoramic views or as a quiet office space, fully replaced new garden decking and lovely new luxury rattan garden furniture to enjoy the views and socialise together.

The two-storey reverse level accommodation offers a very comfortable retreat for couples or families within just five minutes’ walk of the Dartmouth town centre.

A flight of steps leads up from Above Town to a row of terraced cottages - the front door leads into a hallway off which are two bedrooms and a family bathroom, as well as stairs up to the living accommodation at first floor level.

Bedroom one has a king-size bed and bedroom two has a king-size bed (which can be split into two 2'6" single beds on request) and en suite shower room.

In addition there is a separate bathroom with over bath shower.

On the first floor is a bright and sunny opern plan sitting room/kitchen with lovely river and sea views, and two comfortable sofas.

A SMART 4K TV with internet access, free super-fast full fibre max 100 broadband, an Apple HomePod and BOSE bluetooth speakers are also provided.

There is also a very well equipped modern kitchen with lovely denby crockery, gas hob, electric oven, fridge and dishwasher.

The utility room includes a washer/dryer, an additional fridge freezer and toilet.

Located off the kitchen, there is a lovely bright conservatory/dining room with contemporary oak table and chairs, from which there is access to the garden.

To the rear of the cottage is a three-tiered garden area, accessed via wooden steps at each level.

The upper-most level of decking has superb panoramic views across the town, the river and out to sea.

Choose to lie on the rattan sun loungers, sit comfortably on the rattan sofa, chairs with coffee table or sit up on the rattan barstools – this really is a special place to sit and relax.

The garden has a new garden studio with electricity and internet access containing a sofa and a folding table and two chairs.

It is an ideal home office or place to relax.

This room is a lovely location to enjoy the views, especially after dark when the town and harbour are beautifully lit up.

The garden includes a charcoal BBQ.

Annual parking permit, for one car, is provided for the Mayors Avenue public car park (subject to available spaces).

Golf and Spa discounts of 25% included at Dartmouth Hotel, Golf and Spa (vouchers).

The cottage is just a few minutes walk from the town centre, where there are a fantastic array of local amenities, high street shops and independents nestled in the heart of Dartmouth.

There is something for everyone.

A short walk from the cottage to the mouth of the River Dart will find the lovely Castle Cove and Sugary Cove small beaches offering a tranquil setting to enjoy the sound of the sea or a swim, whilst Dartmouth Castle has unrivalled views across the glistening waters of the river and sea.

Continue onto the coastal path for more walks – why not walk to the award winning blue flag beach at Blackpool sands and catch the bus back to Dartmouth afterwards ?.

Board the passenger ferry and visit the nearby village of Kingswear, where you can ride on a steam train to visit the town of Paignton or walk the glorious South West Coast Path to the idyllic harbour town of Brixham.

Further inland, there is the Dartmouth golf club and spa (for which we provide 25% discount vouchers on request), the vibrant grounds of Fast Rabbit Farm Gardens provide an enchanting place to enjoy an afternoon stroll, local National Trust houses and gardens provide something for all the family, whilst those looking for a spot of adventure may prefer a visit to Woodlands Family Theme Park.

With all of this and more, choose Harbour Heights as a base that you'll be delighted to return to.

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 the house is situated in Above Town (Steep and narrow access road & steps to town centre).

NOTE - No parking at the property - parking permit supplied (car park is approximately 10-15 minute walk from the apartment). Please note that the Mayors Avenue car park is closed for the Regatta Week.

Several steps to reach the decking area with the views over the river.

The property allows up to 2 small/medium dogs.
