    “The property is well placed to enjoy the town and all amenities of Dartmouth.”

    It is very central and 10min walk to centre. Although there is no parking space at the property, a permit for one vehicle is provided to park in town. The house is very stylishly decorated, modern and up to date decor. Lots of storage, very comfortable beds and well fitted kitchen. The bathroom and shower room are lovely with good water pressure in both ...

    It is very central and 10min walk to centre. Although there is no parking space at the property, a permit for one vehicle is provided to park in town. The house is very stylishly decorated, modern and up to date decor. Lots of storage, very comfortable beds and well fitted kitchen. The bathroom and shower room are lovely with good water pressure in both. There is so much to do in Dartmouth itself, for two days we didn't use the car! We walked to Dartmouth Castle and Castle cove. We were lucky to see a dolphin in the cove. There is a lovely cafe next to the castle. We caught a small ferry/water taxi back, make sure you take cash to pay the ferry man. On another day we crossed the river and caught the steam train to Paignton and back for a cruise on the river Dart. 3 trips to the beach - Bantham beach for body boarding and Bigbury to catch sea tractor to Burgh Island and enjoy crab sandwich at Pilchard Inn. Another beach we enjoyed is Blackpool Sands (not sandy) a sheltered bay with good swimming. Bigbury and Bantham beaches are sandy. There is an abundance of places to eat in Dartmouth and our favourites, Alf Resco for brunch, Floating Bridge and Rockfish for dinner. There is a great butcher just next to the market place at the end of the road when you walk into town. Also a French bakery next to the market, down one of the narrow lanes. We didn't have time to take a ferry trip to Dittisham where we planned crabbing on the pontoon, we also wanted to go paddle boarding but hopefully do them next time. Very enjoyable and Hillside is the perfect place to stay.

The property

Resting in a desirable residential area, a short distance from the bustling centre of Dartmouth, rests this wonderful three-bedroom holiday home, Hillside.

Boasting a contemporary yet homely interior and enjoying close proximity to a wealth of must-visit sights and attractions, including the picture-perfect harbour and the National Trust's Little Dartmouth, Hillside offers an idyllic base for a family of five looking to explore the delights of Devon.

Climb the stone steps leading from street level to reach this wonderful abode, where an entrance hallway greets you as you step inside, providing a handy space to store your outerwear and beachgoing essentials.

Be charmed by the bright and airy décor of the open-plan living space, where you can look forward to settling down to enjoy a family favourite in front of the television at the end of another day of adventure.

The well-equipped kitchen tucked away at the rear of the sociable space houses all of the necessities required to rustle up delectable dishes during your stay, and the nearby dining table makes for a lovely spot to indulge over a chilled glass of wine.

In the warmer weather, make the most of the well-kept garden, where a raised terrace provides a sunny space to end the day with a well-deserved tipple.

Retreating indoors, you'll find two well-presented bedrooms set on the first floor, a king-size and a single, with a stylish family bathroom set across the way, whilst an additional king-size offering a flexible zip/link feature is tucked away on the second floor.

Completing this wonderful property is a shower room, positioned on the ground floor for your convenience, along with a handy utility, meaning freshening up your holiday attire is an easy task!

A short walk from your doorstep will bring you to a fantastic array of local amenities nestled in the heart of Dartmouth; indulge in a menu of gourmet seafood and a view across the seafront at The Seahorse Restaurant, opt for a traditional spot of pub grub in a rustic 14th-century setting at The Cherub Inn, or fuel the day's excursions with a hearty breakfast at Alf Rescos.

The remote shingle beach at Sugary Cove rests moments away, offering a tranquil setting to enjoy a moment of peace away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre, whilst Dartmouth Castle has unrivaled views across the glistening waters of the estuary.

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, the vibrant grounds of Fast Rabbit Farm Gardens provide an enchanting place to enjoy an afternoon stroll, whilst those looking for a spot of adventure may prefer a visit to Woodlands Family Theme Park.

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

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.

There is no on street parking available near the property. However a parking permit for an unallocated space in the Mayors Avenue car park is provided.

Access to the top floor bedroom is by a set of steep steps.
