Here's a few of our guest comments in 2012:
If you want to stay in this beautiful part of England this apartment can only enhance the wonderful experience that this area has to offer. J&T
Our 2nd stay in Avanti and it certainly wont be the last, another fabulous week in Dartmouth, thank you Di for another perfect week in your wonderful apartment. A&C
Everything is 1st class, apartment, views, location and warm welcome. Found Di's info on walks helpful and enjoyable. Certainly enjoyed a much needed break and will definitely recommend. G&T
Lovely apartment, if it was mine I don't think I could rent it out! It doesn't have the feel of a holiday rental. J&S
Many thanks Di for your hospitality, from the moment we arrived we felt very welcome. The apartment is fantastic and lovely to return to, everything is here, you are the perfect hostess. Enjoyed lots of walking so must have burnt off some of the calories from the cream teas, pasties and fish and chips. V&D
About the Owner
Hi, I'm Di Collingswood, I've lived & worked here at Capri in Dartmouth for 7 years with my architect husband Nigel and cocker spaniel, Bella. We work from a studio here at Capri. Dartmouth has a unique charm, a magnetic appeal; when I am away from here I cant wait to return.
Apartment Avanti was designed to be incorporated within our house but have its own separate entrance, patio & self catering facilities. The improvements here have taken 2 years and I hope you will be suitably wowed! You are assured of a peaceful and relaxing holiday here at Avanti and know that you will fall in love with Dartmouth as I did. Being able to walk into Dartmouth, park and sit outside you wont have a dull day or be disappointed.
I look forward to welcoming you!
Year property purchased: 2005
Why this location?
I love not having to use the car as all the facilities I need are within walking distance, parking outside our house in a quiet road is a bonus & having a sunny aspect. The town is so friendly and there is little crime. The Dartmouth Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta bring the community together, they are unmissable unique events. There's always plenty going on in the Summer but the Winters are quiet, time for beach walks and log fires in pubs with old world charm. Mild Winters, sunny Summers breathtaking Devon countryside and coastline, cream teas, crab sandwiches, chocolate box villages, river trips, surf on the shore; whether you are visiting for the first time or returning after many years you will find Dartmouth charming you back for more.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
Apartment Avanti is within walking distance of the town for all your needs. Although a short car ride to the top of the town provides for the larger food supermarkets and a petrol station. From the apartment you can walk the Dart Valley Trail, coastal walks, and scenic walks to view points above the Dart. A lido swimming pool in the Summer months is at the top of the town and a luxury Spa is part of the Dart Marina Hotel on the river frontage where they offer heavenly treatments. Greenway the newly opened National Trust Property where Agatha Christie lived is a short river trip up the river Dart. Further a field are the market towns of Totnes and Kingsbridge. The Eden project is approximately 1.20 minutes. With so much on the doorstep you wont see it all on your first visit.
