    “Cleanliness could be a little better in places, mainly in those corners which we all clean less often than we should.”

    We requested two travel cots for our babies but there's no space to accommodate two cots. Ours are small enough to share but if they were bigger it would have been a problem. We knew there was no parking, but the listing suggests using the Mayor's Avenue car park but this has a 4 hour limit. It didn't mention Market Square car park which is free with very few time restrictions. On the plus side it was equipped for a holiday home and the terrace out the back was amazing.

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 that there is no parking at the property and no parking permit is provided for this property also. All bed linen and bath/hand towels are supplied. You will need to bring your own tea towels beach towels and oven gloves.
