    “We loved Moonrakers Cottage and will definitely stay again if we visit Dartmouth in the future.”

    Great location, amazing views, well equipped cottage with great facilities. It was a huge positive having our own car parking at the property, however we could only get our car (Volvo XC60) partially into the open garage but it was enough so that next door could get in and out of their garage/drive. People with very large cars would struggle. The location of the property is also a big plus with lots of amenities within a short 'flat' 5 minute walk. However, the steps and path from the garage ...

    Great location, amazing views, well equipped cottage with great facilities. It was a huge positive having our own car parking at the property, however we could only get our car (Volvo XC60) partially into the open garage but it was enough so that next door could get in and out of their garage/drive. People with very large cars would struggle. The location of the property is also a big plus with lots of amenities within a short 'flat' 5 minute walk. However, the steps and path from the garage to the cottage would not be suitable for anyone with a mobility problem or bad knees/hips. We are all relatively fit and active but still found the steps and path a challenge after a busy day walking coastal paths. Dartmouth is not for the faint hearted. The scores given above reflect a few minor issues which we reported to the office but none of these issues would stop us staying here again or from us recommending to others as they are all minor safety and maintenance issues: 1. The wooden porch beside the garage was in a bad start of repair when we arrived. Wood rotten causing the door to come off some of the hinges and the doorframe to snap on the Monday of our stay due to heavy rain and wind conditions. The door had to be left balanced which was precarious when we were using it multiple times in the day when going out and about. 2. The house had changed colour from the photos on the website. House is now blue instead of yellow. This would not have been an issue if we had not been looking for yellow house because the signage for Moonrakers had washed off the house sign (piece of slate which was lying on the ground). 3. As mentioned above the house signage has come off the house sign so we found 20 Clarence Street so knew we were in the right location but went to drive pass 22 because no sign visible from the street and as I mentioned above the house we thought we were looking for was yellow not blue. 4. The hedge which runs the full length of the path was overgrown which meant it was awkward walking up and down the path particularly with luggage and bags. This hedge needs to be trimmed right back. We didn't notice this when we arrived but we think it sprouted because it was very hot Friday/Saturday/Sunday and then very heavy rain on the Monday and it was after this that the hedge was covering almost half the width of the path. Points 2, 3 and 4 are all quick and easy fixes which would help with visitors first impressions. Also I think it would be useful to update the notice in the kitchen regarding recycling. We took our glass bottles to Mayors Car Park but as we couldn't find any info regarding what to do with paper and plastic we brought our recycling home. When I popped into the office to hand the keys back the very helpful staff member said we could have put all our recycling in a black bag and these would be taken away and sorted when the rest of the rubbish was removed. This would be useful information to know. Thanks again for a great stay. We loved Moonrakers Cottage and hope to visit again if we are back in this area in the future. Thank you to Coast and Country for great communications and excellent customer services.

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.

The property is accessed via a footpath with two sets of steps, 41 in total.

1 well behaved dog permitted.
