    “This was our third stay in The Old Wash House.”

    It is brilliantly appointed, clean, and comfortable. The owners take a real pride in upkeep and their love for their house shows. The property is a convenient, level walk into Dartmouth and the car parking space is a real bonus. We had a wonderful week.

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.

The property is a 5 minute level walk from the town centre.

All bed linen and bath/hand towels are supplied. You will need to bring your own tea towels beach towels and oven gloves.

Up to two dogs are welcome at the property and the courtyard is fully enclosed.
