“Very clean good quality fixtures, beds and bedding which is really important to us.”
Great inside space for 6 people and lovely view from upstairs lounge.
Great inside space for 6 people and lovely view from upstairs lounge. Only suggest one improvement, outside decking too slippy to use and the garden was overgrown so limited views of the river. Since we booked the property on the basis of the outside space it did have an impact on our enjoyment, especially when the weather was good.
“We love Starfish Cottage however it’s looking a bit tired now.”
We have stayed here quite a few times and it seems to have lost it’s ‘homeliness’. It wasn’t as clean as it normally is - it just seemed forgotten. When we arrived, there were quite a few dead flies upstairs which makes me think it was cleaned much earlier to our arrival and perhaps not checked. Since you took over Coast and Country Cottages they have lost their ‘local’ touch. We have holidayed many years with coast and country and I had a serious health issue meaning we were unable to holiday in April. You made it incredibly difficult for us to move our holiday (not cancel) back at what was a very very stressful time for us as a family. Eventually you allowed us to move our holiday but at great expense as it was a more expensive week??? Having said that - all of your cottages have increased in price meaning we will probably look for other alternatives in the future. What a shame.
“Hardly any channels available on tv's.”
Cd player didnt work. Duvets very nice but far too warm. Some cleaning products would have been good.Difficult to get into garage. A slope between pavement and garage seems to be the problem. Lovely cottage but situation at top of steep hill is not good if you have mobility problems.
“The house has everything you can think of which makes it like being at home.”
Fantastic location (if you don't mind walking up steep hills) and the views across Dartmouth are beautiful. Parking can be a bit of a challenge as only the smallest of cars can use the garage and the space to park in front can lead to the road being blocked depending on how other people park nearby.
“The online format and process that Sykes use to enable you to short list then select your chosen holiday is one of the best I have come across.”
Then the way you are reminded for the balance etc is very helpful too as is the explanation on how get there and obtain the key. It was also easy if I needed to call and discuss any aspect of my booking which with some companies can be a challenge. Starfish Cottage was absolutely wonderful in the standard of cleanliness and equipment level, we felt very at home and relaxed there. The view is amazing and the bifold doors make it an exceptional location to relax late into the evening. We would rate it 10 out of 10 and while the parking can be a challenge the proximity to the town and so many facilities more than compensated.
“Lovely cottage but garage size and access a problem.”

“Starfish Cottage was spotless, beautifully decorated to a very high standard.”
Wonderful views of the River Dart, boats and Naval College. Three minute walk to the town. The only down-side to the cottage was leaving!!!
“Fantastic cottage, beautifully decorated and immaculate when we arrived.”
The outside seating, sliding patio doors and views are gorgeous. The climb to get there is very steep and hard work with a pram! It's excellent being in the heart of Dartmouth as there is so much to see and do on the doorstep. Would highly recommend to anyone fit and able to climb steep hills if, like us, you don't want to use the car too much.
“The house has stunning views from the dining area over Dartmouth and gets the evening sun which is great.”
We enjoyed a fantastic week with our 6 month old twins, the hill is manageable even with a big pram, so don't be put off if you are fit and able. The quality of the accommodation is stylish and comfortable. I would recommend this property as one of the best in Dartmouth.
“Garage suitable for small car only, too tight for medium car so had to find space on the road.”
Cottage had some really nice finishing touches & lovely views, located nice & close to the town. Would definitely stay here again.
“Acommodation was excellent for 6 adults (family).”
Accommodation was light, clean and very well-equipped. We really enjoyed our stay.
“Our only comment was that the garden was a little overgrown on either side, other than that, we were very pleased with the property.”
“A wonderful house - nothing negative to say”
A home from home.
“Beautifully equipped and designed with amazing viewsFantastic location.”
Challenging access in a Fiat 500!

“We needed somewhere to stay just before Christmas out of season and Starfish fitted the bill bill.”
Six of us had a luxurious stay whilst attending Dartmouth College Passing Out Ball. Facilities were excellent and view from lounge was amazing. Highly recommended. ????????
Thank you for taking the time to leave such a kind review of your short break at Starfish Cottage in Dartmouth.

“The cottage was spotless, beautifully decorated and equipped, and we would not hesitate to book it again if we were planning to be in the area, or recommend it to friends.”
Two minor niggles - the wine bottle cooler in the kitchen did not work (it would have been useful to free up space in the fridge), the attic bedroom had nowhere to put clothes (either hanging space or drawers). This is understandable because of the sloping ceiling, but a bank of hooks on the wall with hangers would have been really helpful. We were able to use the small wardrobe in the twin room opposite, but only because the room was not occupied. However, adult hangers would have been helpful, rather than just the tiny children's ones (guessing that it was assumed a twin room would have children in, but that's not necessarily the case!) - we used the beds to put the clothes on in the end, but had the room been occupied we would have struggled. As I say, minor niggles that did not impact on our enjoyment of a fabulous property - many thanks to the owners for their efforts, and for sharing it with us.
Many thanks for your kind review in respect of your holiday at Starfish Cottage in Dartmouth. We were grateful for your feedback regarding the property. The wine cooler does work, it is just left kept off because it is quite noisy. There is a switch next to it to switch it on. The attic bedroom does have storage which is limited because of the sloping ceiling. However, there are drawers outside the room on the landing. The wardrobes are not full sized because of the sloping ceiling. We were so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your break at this fabulous property and do hope you choose to stay with us again.

“What a beautiful cottage and it has the extra feature of a " Devon gym" being positioned near the top of a 1 in 3 hill!”
This gives you the most fantastic views of the town and the river from the various decked levels and balcony . The cottage itself has had attention to the smallest detail and felt like home from home almost immediately. What a gem , so glad we found it. Thank you yet again to coast and country for another wonderful holiday.

“Very clean comfortable cottage with all the amenities that you would need and amazing view of Dartmouth.”
The bifold doors and terrace we an added bonus to make the most if the view. The only downfall was the parking. The garage is difficult to get into due to the uneven step getting into the garage. We had to use it on a couple of occasions as there was literally no space nearby on Crowthers Hill or Jawbones Hill but nearly took the bumper off of the car doing so. A parking permit for the car park at the top of jawbones hill would have been ideal. But all in all a lovely place to stay and we will be returning.

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.
Please note the house is situated towards the top of Crowther's Hill. (Very steep and narrow access road).
The garage is suitable for a small to medium car. Garage Door Dimensions - height 180cm and width 210cm.
