    “Really nice apartment with every possible convenience included, the outdoor space is perfect and a nice place to relax in the sun.”

    The photos on |Sykes are accurate so I will not talk about the many good points of being there but just be sure it suits everyone a couple of points; Although very close to the "flat area" by the river / boat pond it is still up a steep (short) hill, followed by a set of very steep internal stairs to the front door with a sharp bend at the top (like climbing a turret). Will not be a problem for most people and was not for us but happy we didn't have anyone with us who was infirm - not sure if ...

    The photos on |Sykes are accurate so I will not talk about the many good points of being there but just be sure it suits everyone a couple of points; Although very close to the "flat area" by the river / boat pond it is still up a steep (short) hill, followed by a set of very steep internal stairs to the front door with a sharp bend at the top (like climbing a turret). Will not be a problem for most people and was not for us but happy we didn't have anyone with us who was infirm - not sure if previous reviews mention this. The parking permit is a godsend as parking is really restrictive in Dartmouth, even then its hard to be sure that you will get back into Mayors Avenue car park at the end of the day. The curtains / blinds do not give enough shade to block out the morning sun, this could and should be easily fixed by the owners with some blackouts. Church clock tower practically next door with hourly rings - although I never actually heard any before 4am I did wake for all of the others. Gets better over the week and quaint Please pay attention to the instructions for waste disposal, the family in the week before us left bags of rubbish from a barbecue in a dustbin on the terrace (why is that even there?) which was not removed by the cleaners and we didn't notice for a couple of days until the smell / fly's started. Not cool guys and plain lazy, did not appreciate cleaning up after you and taking that rotten fish through the apartment. Anyway, despite the above we had a great time and Simples is almost ideal, I think just some better curtains would be a simple fix.

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.

One dog is welcome at a cost of £25.00 per week

Please note - No parking at the property - parking permit supplied (car park is approximately 10 minute walk from the apartment). Please also note that the Mayors Avenue car park is normally closed for the Dartmouth Regatta Week and parking will be at the Dartmouth Park and Ride.
