The property

High Mount lies in the heart of the Dartmouth valley at the top of the town in Devon.

Enjoy the marvellous views and location of this unique apartment; set over two floors and sleeping six guests.

The property rests within walking distance of the centre of Dartmouth and enjoys fantastic views of the town and River Dart, and is ideal for friends and families looking to explore Devon.

Pass through the front door and head up the stairs to the landing and utility room with a convenient washing machine and space to hang wet suits/store paddle boards and surfboards.

On the first floor there is a wonderful sitting room to relax in; a bay window offers a wealth of natural light and lovely views, with two sofas and an armchair to sink into, a Smart TV for a host of entertainment and a feature fireplace, with most rooms enjoying this traditional feature.

Along the hall you will also find a delightful double bedroom with built-in storage and fantastic views with a family bathroom next door, while heading upstairs to the top floor brings you to the charming twin room with ample storage and wardrobes, Velux windows and a large window offering fantastic views of the River Dart, a further double bedroom and a quiet study area with sofa and desk.

The first floor family bathroom features both a bath and a walk-in shower giving you the choice between a hot soak or steamy rinse.

Also on the first floor discover the kitchen/ dining room where you can gather for delicious meals prepared in the well-equipped kitchen.

The pretty garden can be accessed down two flights of stone steps where outdoor furniture can be used for alfresco dining in the warmer weather, with the scenic backdrop of the sloping valley fields opposite.

When you're ready to explore, stroll into the town centre and begin to admire the beauty of this bustling town; wander around the harbour and watch the boats coming and going, take a picnic to enjoy in the Royal Avenue Gardens, and explore via the self-guided Dartmouth Mayflower Heritage Trail.

Visit the Tudor fortress of Bayard's Cove Fort built in the 16th century before heading up to Dartmouth Castle guarding the Dart Estuary since the 15th century with its imposing stance.

Hire a boat from the harbour and venture out onto the water for a scenic cruise along the river or take a Greenway & Dittisham Ferry Service up to the village of Dittisham, one of the most attractive villages in South Devon.

Alternatively take a ferry over to Kingswear, the village resting opposite Dartmouth on the other side of the Dart for a stroll through the area, enjoying the glorious views of Dartmouth and heading past Kingswear Castle.

While you're on this side of the river, visit the National Trusts Coleton Fishacre House and explore the beautiful exotic garden, or head along the South West Coast Path up to the wonderful town of Brixham for amazing fresh seafood, Breakwater Beach and The Golden Hind replica ship which sits in the harbour.

Don't miss a chance to visit the gorgeous shores of Blackpool Sands, a Blue Flag shingle beach in a sheltered bay, with great waters for swimming and watersports.

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.
