    “Fantastic place was so comfortable and had everything we wanted, beautifully decorated.”

    We loved the hot tub but wished it had had a gazebo over the top as lots of bits from the large tree kept falling in and that will start to clogg up. BUT fabulous place to stay .we loved it .

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.

Plans are being produced to redevelop the previous swimming pool area during 2022, replacing it with an outdoor recreation area available for all year round use. We will provide further details when available.

The children’s play area has been fully redeveloped with a new climbing frame, slide and swings, which along with the tennis court remains open all year round. Please note - tennis rackets and balls are NOT provided.

Construction of eight new 3-bedroom properties and associated site works will be completed in the Spring. Further redevelopment is planned to commence during the Autumn. During the periods of property development Hillfield Village will continue to operate with as little disruption as possible, with continued access to the tennis court and play area. Please contact the Coast & Country Cottages office for further details on how the above may affect your specific accommodation.

Keepers Lodge is tucked away from most of the building work onsite however there can be noise disruption.

Due to the Health and Safety policy, any use of barbecues is strictly prohibited at Hillfield Village.
