  • “We loved this holiday home, the views were fabulous though we only had one day when the weather allowed us to sit outside.”

    I think the owners acknowledge that the downstairs (bedrooms) require some updating (though the bathrooms were lovely). Our ONLY complaint would be that the bedding in the main ensuite bedroom felt damp every night - whether that is because there is no door on the shower, I don't know but that room needs a dehumidifier for a week! A dressing table somewhere in the house to do your hair would also be good. As I say, the owners say in the bits of literature left out that they were due to do ...

    I think the owners acknowledge that the downstairs (bedrooms) require some updating (though the bathrooms were lovely). Our ONLY complaint would be that the bedding in the main ensuite bedroom felt damp every night - whether that is because there is no door on the shower, I don't know but that room needs a dehumidifier for a week! A dressing table somewhere in the house to do your hair would also be good. As I say, the owners say in the bits of literature left out that they were due to do something downstairs but, understandably, the pandemic slowed their plans. The house had the best equipped kitchen of any Sykes home we have been to and every touch seemed to be thought of. Thanks to the owners for sharing their home. I hadn't been to Dartmouth since I was little (50 years ago!) but what a delightful town, full of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. We thought long and hard about making a 600 mile round trip to Dartmouth during the fuel crisis and even delayed setting off by a day to see what the situation was but glad we did. We didn't use the car whilst we were away in case we couldn't fill up again but there was plenty to do walking from the door of the holiday home. Would recommend this home to anyone who doesn't mind a pleasant walk and short sharp steep bit on the way back!

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.
