    “This is a beautifully located property with the benefit of parking.”

    It was chosen during September 2020 due to its open plan lounge/diner/kitchen and the space, as two households were staying - both from the same family. The living area has three large patio doors opening onto a large balcony and it was this feature which sold the property to me as it meant that the windows could be open and there would be good air flow to the property. It was disappointing when we arrived to find that we were not allowed to open two of the large doors as an owner’s note said ...

    It was chosen during September 2020 due to its open plan lounge/diner/kitchen and the space, as two households were staying - both from the same family. The living area has three large patio doors opening onto a large balcony and it was this feature which sold the property to me as it meant that the windows could be open and there would be good air flow to the property. It was disappointing when we arrived to find that we were not allowed to open two of the large doors as an owner’s note said they were hard to close. This I think needs to be fixed or at least noted on the brochure description. The other problem is that the hot water ran out on our first day after just three of us had showered. We looked for the heating/water controls and were unable to find any. I called the rental company who said a maintenance man would call. As we were out we did not see him but were assured later that he had been and that there was a small free standing Nest control on the table in the hall which related to the hot water. On searching, it was found but by no means obvious as to what it was. However despite the man apparently having called there was still no hot water. One of our party found the small control and managed to adjust it to suit. May I suggest that instructions relating to this controller are included in the welcome pack! It would save time and effort for holidaymakers and the rental company. When sorting out the rubbish there were no large black bin bags at the property and no large bags to put the bedding in after use. We had to buy some. I understand that the owners have only recently started offering their property for rental so realise there may be a few teething problems but these are fairly substantial. Surely the rental company should advise them on these issues and check they are in place? Apart from these points we had a lovely stay. The house is well equipped, especially the kitchen and as previously stated the location is great, within walking distance of town and the castle. There are great walks in the area too.

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.
