About the Owner

We bought Barrington House in 2004 and have spent 4 years turning it from a very traditional B&B into a beautiful family home with 3 exciting self catering properties. It has been a labour of love but we are very proud of what we have achieved. We launched the business in July 2012. We have had a very successful start and received fantastic feedback from all our guests.

We live in the main house with our 3 children and love welcoming guests to stay in either The Penthouse, The Glasshouse and The Hideaway. The main house is very separate from the holiday homes but we are on hand if you need any help or advice or simply want to say Hi!

We offer truly luxurious accommodation and we have made our properties suitable for couples, families and groups of friends.

From the Owner

Dartmouth has always been a special place and is where where I grew up as a child. It was always my dream to get married in the church by Dartmouth castle and to go on a boat in my wedding dress! My dreams came true although it was a very long time ago now!!! Having lived abroad for the past 10 years, it is now wonderful to be settled back in Dartmouth with my family and to be living in a such a beautiful house. We wake up every morning to the amazing views of the River Dart and just love living in this part of the world - it takes a lot to beat it! We have 3 children ranging from 7 to 15 years old and there is so much to do - whether it be crab fishing at Dittisham, pottering about on the river, popping over to Salcombe or simply hanging out on one of the beaches - we are never bored!

We are so close to so many beautiful beaches. The award winning Blackpool sands is a 10 minute drive and sandy surfing Bantham beach is 25 minutes drive. There are many more beaches along the coastline all within a 30 minutes drive.


Our nearest airport is Exeter Airport, approximately 1 hours drive away. Our nearest train stain is Totnes which is 25 minutes drive away - Trains go every hour to London Paddington.


We are very close to the centre of Dartmouth. It is a lovely 10 minute stroll down the hill and takes about 15 minutes to walk back up again - depending on how fit you are!

If you do fancy getting in the car there are many lovely towns and villages nearby - Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Ashburton, Plymouth are all less than an hours drive away
