About the property

Waterside apartments in Dartmouth, South Devon, stunning views, own mooring, w

Gullsway Boathouse is under new ownership, with a number of innovations underway.

A ground floor apartment with open plan sitting room, dining area and kitchen. Wood burning stove, very well equipped, with high speed wifi. Wonderful location and views being a waterside location. Unsuitable for the infirm as the apartment is down 89 steps, but well worth the effort. We have had visitors there from 8 weeks old to 80 years! The lower apartment has direct access to the estuary and the sea with its own steps to the water and a running mooring for those who wish to use a boat up to 4.2m. Dartmouth is an amazing town full of history, culture and events. It is a great base for exploring Devon's many attractions.

Please note that the property next door is undergoing renovation which is expected to end at the end of May 2018. The building company is a local reputable firm and is mindful of guests.

Upper Gullsway is a similar apartment with a private balcony offer. No direct access to the water but fantastic uninterrupted views both towards town and the river mouth with the ancient castle guarding the entrance. The calendar shows if there is availability in the lower apartment. Please see our own availability calendar on which is up to date for both properties if you wish to check availability for the upper apartment.

Notes on accommodation: The apartment is on the ground floor of Gullsway Boathouse with a private entrance. There is a similar 2 bedroom apartment on the first floor with its own entrance. This would create a large space for a bigger group who would appreciate the ability to be together, but enjoy separate facilities and privacy when wanted. Please look at We can accommodate dogs but they must be kept off furniture and out of bedrooms. Parking can be found if available on the road between April and October, and less than 10 minutes up the road by the old pottery apartments all year round. Outside: A private waterside terrace about 400 feet square, with planting and table and chairs to the front of the apartment. From the master bedroom there is tiny 'grotto' garden. Steps down to the water can be slippery with sea weed at times. * Please note that the direct access to the water is blocked by 'wave -boards' during the winter months, October to March. Our house managers prepare the apartment for your arrival with bed-linen and towels. No smoking inside the property. Other: Gas central heating. Patio table and chairs. CD and film collection. Welcome bottle of white wine.

I took my girlfriend here for the weekend as she had never been to Dartmouth. The Gullsway boathouse looked like the perfect romantic getaway and somewhere memorable to propose on the website. It did not fail to deliver when we turned up. The view over the water was magnificent with the panel of windows/doors which open on to a small patio area with water lapping at the end of it. The accommodation was equip with everything we needed and the facilities were of a high standard. Can't recommend this place enough.

What a pleasant surprise arriving at this lovely boathouse! Down the mystery steps to a waterside haven, to watch the sailing world go by.

Super views of Kingswear and only a couple of minutes walk into Dartmouth's main centre.

Apartment was spotless and welcoming with an extremely well equipped kitchen and very spacious living area. Fully recommend it for a lovely restful holiday!

Special interest holidays:

Fishing and crabbing is great from your own chair on the terrace. Dartmouth has a lively arts scene, cookery courses and of course many water sports. The lower apartment has direct water access and a running mooring direct to the property for those who wish to use a boat.


Dartmouth Castle and the main Devon Coastal Walk is 10 minutes walk from Gullsway Boathouse. Blackpool sands, a beautiful maintained family beach with cafe and shop is 3 miles or 8 minutes drive. Start bay beach and nature reserve is 10 minutes drive or 1.5 hours walk.


Exeter or Plymouth airports are closest. A car is not needed for Dartmouth itself. In peak season there is a steam train to Brisham and a ferry to Totnes. A car is needed for further exploration into Devon.


Dartmouth town 5 minutes walk. Agetha Christie's home Greenway, 20 minutes by ferry boat. 15 minutes drive or a coastal path walk to Blackpool Sands and Start Bay Beach.

Further Details:

On street free unlimited parking is on 'Weeke Hill' (see Google maps TQ6 9DB) 0.4 miles or about 8 minutes walk. Pay and display parking is on the main Mayor's Avenue car park in town, the same distance from the apartment.

The property now benefits from high speed wifi.
