The property

Secret Garden is a fabulous first-floor apartment, rests centrally in Dartmouth, a bustling Devonshire harborside town.

Just a stone's throw away from local amenities and the embankment of the River Dart, whilst benefiting from a rear 'secret garden' and a welcoming interior, the apartment invites a family or group of four.

Access the apartment by climbing the exterior steps before entering the well-equipped kitchen/diner; here you'll find all you need to rustle up and enjoy tasty dishes as a family whilst admiring the views of the rolling Devonshire hills from the kitchen window.

Next door you will find the welcoming sitting room with plush seating including an electric snuggler with integrated USB charger and a Smart TV, offering a relaxing setting if you don't fancy going out after an adventure-filled day.

When sleep calls, select between the king and twin rooms, both offering ample storage to help you unpack and feel at home, serviced by a sleek shower room boasting a rainfall and handheld shower.

Come morning, head outdoors and climb the steps up to the rear enclosed garden, where you can enjoy an alfresco breakfast and coffee, see the steam train and tops of the bobbing boats in the harbour, before adventuring to Dartmouth and its host of attractions.

Start off by brushing up on your knowledge at Dartmouth Museum, before exploring the Royal Avenue Gardens and the stunning harbour.

Dartmouth Castle is also nearby, elevated above the picturesque shoreline making up the South West Coast Path.

Be sure to explore Compass Cove Beach and Blackpool Sands often described as Devon's most beautiful beach.

Woodlands family theme park is a short drive away, guaranteed to provide hours of fun for all the family.

The charming town of Totnes is only half an hour away, enjoy tours of the local castle, browse the wide range of independent shops or perhaps visit Totnes Museum and Archives, whilst Baltic Wharf is a bustling area perfect for people watching.

Make Paignton your final stop, offering plenty of family-friendly attractions, including the Zoo Environmental Park, Paignton Pier and the sandy shore of Fairy Cove, worth adding to your itinerary.

For those wanting a full day of adventure and natural beauty Dartmoor National Park is well worth the drive (around 1 hour drive).

Experience all of this by booking Secret Garden, Dartmouth.

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.

Note: There are 18 external steps which are steep and uneven, with handrail, to the apartment entrance and the garden is accessed up further uneven steep steps and sloping pathways, great care should be taken. Young children should be supervised. Property is not suitable for those with limited mobility.
