The property

Topsail is a fabulous character cottage set in an elevated position, a short walk from the town of Dartmouth, with far reaching views across the stunning River Dart.

Furnished to a high-standard, with comfort in mind, providing a lovingly-styled holiday home in a wonderful location, ideal for two to four people keen to soak up the laid-back atmosphere of the town and take in the sights from both the balcony and the garden.

Set over three floors with an open-plan living area on the ground floor, there is a well-equipped kitchenette and a good-sized dining table; perfect to enjoy home cooked meals while enjoying the views not just during the day, but at night when the lights of Dartmouth are twinkling.

The sitting area has a sofa and chair in front of the feature fireplace with a woodburner, making it a good place to relax after a full day out and about, any time of the year.

There are two lovely bedrooms, one on each floor, which are beautifully presented and finished to a high-standard, with both bedrooms enjoying fabulous views across Dartmouth to the river and the steam railway.

There is a spacious family bathroom on the first floor, with an over-bath shower.

From the living area, the door opens on to an enclosed decked balcony with full glass balustrades and furniture, making it great for alfresco dining and enjoy the afternoon sun backed by the lovely views to the river and the surrounding area.

There is also a charming lower deck garden area with a bench and table and chairs where you can sit and read a book or just watch the world go by.

The town and riverside are just a 5-minute walk down the hill from the cottage where there are excellent restaurants, interesting boutique shops, and of course all the activities along the waterfront, including sailing and river cruises up the Dart to Greenway, famed as Agatha Christies former holiday home; you can then get fit climbing back up the hill to the cottage, it's steep!

There's lots to do in Dartmouth, including The Flavel Arts Centre, offering live events, films and exhibitions, and there is a lively programme of events across the year including the Dart Music Festival, Arts & Crafts Weekend, Shakespeare Week, Dartmouth Food Festival, Candlelit Dartmouth at Christmas and of course the famous Dartmouth Regatta in August.

Whisk yourself and those dear to you away for a memorable stay at Topsail.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
