    “Stillwaters is beautiful.”

    A Lovely cottage placed just perfectly for a magnificent view. ...

    A Lovely cottage placed just perfectly for a magnificent view. As you walk in to the enclosed garden you are hit with the stunning views across the sea. A table and 4 chairs await your presence with a nice glass of wine. Staying in the garden there is a BBQ (gas) and some sloping steps around to the rear of the property to the back door. I was a bit concerned about the drop from the low wall by the table and chairs as it’s quite high up. Our dogs had to be kept an eye on at all times. I think a barrier should be put up or maybe a warning sign. The garden is a sun trap and is beautiful 1st thing in the morning. There is an outside toilet and clothes horse in the toilet. You then walk through the door and have plenty of coat hooks in the porch and a washer dryer that is perfect. Into the open plan kitchen, dinner and living room. Lots of good utensils, pots and pans. Loads of space and storage. Great oven, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer although this could do with a deep clean. There’s lots of things around the property that the owner has provided, books, games, maps, information regarding Dartmouth. A large tv which isn’t in a great place as only a certain chair points towards it. However, assuming that you don’t go on holiday to watch tv I don’t think it’s an issue for everyone. There was even an Xbox 360 with games there too. Then we go upstairs to the 1st floor where there are two double bedrooms. I believe this would be classed as bedroom 2 and 3. And a walk in shower and toilet. The bedrooms are lovely, clean with lovely soft carpets. Us parents had room 3, typical, there is a sink which I found useful and a shelf to put makeup etc. The hanging rail was a little weak and leant forwards once our clothes were in. It might be wise to put curtains up too as the blinds just gave privacy and did nothing for the 4am brightness. Our daughter had room 2. This would have been better for us parents as there are larger bedside tables but alas we didn’t. Then up to the 2nd floor, bedroom 1. Our son had this room. He mentioned that he bumped his head several times getting out of bed and down the stairs, this is already written in the owner’s description but worth thinking about if you are tall. Hence why we stayed on the 1st floor. The bedroom has an open shower, toilet and sink which is unusual and there’s no lock on that door. The balcony is beautiful but I didn’t feel safe on it so I stayed away. That is just my paranoia though. My son loved the telescope. Again there is storage in this room and is very spacious. I wanted to give the property a bit of a clean before we left but there was no cleaning products. I found the Hoover though so I was able to run it round. The bbq was very, very, very dirty and greasy and again we didn’t have anything to clean it with. We had some fairy liquid and a sponge so we did our best and then put it in the dishwasher several times but it was still dirty. It’s a shame that the previous guests didn’t clean up after themselves. Maybe a note to tell people to clean it up after use. There are many lovely shops that the property is close too. Be warned that the access is very narrow. We have a Ford Mondeo and struggled to reach the property. It’s also a bit of a hike to walk there too from the shops etc.

    Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review on Stillwaters. I am sorry to hear that the gas BBQ had been left dirty from the previous holiday guests. I have asked the house keeper to ensure this is always checked. We also have a BBQ cleaning and utensil set in a black sip up bag in the pullout drawer ( next to the cooker). A privacy screen is provided for the top bedroom to divide the bathroom and bedroom. Property Owner

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.
