Description

The Glasshouse Sleeps 4 (2 bedroom), modern and contemporary.

The Glasshouse is the newly build addition to Barrington House and takes its fantastic position on the site of an old swimming pool. It has been architecturally

designed and as its name suggest is mainly built from glass. It has its own private gated entrance and a beautiful garden with circular lawn, decking area and even a trampoline. It has 2 large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a downstairs cloakroom and an enormous open plan kitchen/living area. It has been beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished and has a wonderful relaxing, spacious and calming feeling.

About Sarah Smither

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.

Why Sarah Smither chose South Hams

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!

What makes this house unique

Barrington House is a very special place to stay and from the moment you drive through the gates, your holiday expectations however high will be met. The views are amazing, the accommodation is truly luxurious and we are at hand to help make your holiday enjoyable and memorable.

We are also very close to town and have plenty of parking spaces - which are like gold dust in Dartmouth!

We are also very baby, child and family friendly and our list of facilities for babies and children is extensive.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: The accommodation is truly luxurious in every way. From all the latest modern kitchen appliances to wall hung TVs in the bedrooms, demisting mirrors in the bathrooms, ambient lighting in the hallways and above all - everything is new! Bedrooms are spacious, beds are comfy, pillows are divine, bathrooms are cool and white, the white company towels are provided. The kitchens are modern and contemporary with all the latest appliances. The living rooms are open plan with huge sofas and lovely seating areas. We are very baby and child friendly but unfortunately don't allow pets. Outside: The outside areas for The Penthouse, The Glasshouse and The Hideaway are separate. They are wonderful - very private and very pretty. They have huge decking areas with a mixture of teak garden furniture and modern rattan sofas. The Glasshouse garden is based on a seaside theme and has plenty of pebbles and grasses and beautiful purple flowers. There is also a trampoline for the younger guests. The Penthouse garden is like stepping into Bali with Buddha’s hidden amongst the flowing bamboo plants. The Penthouse also has a fantastic balcony with one of the best views in Dartmouth! The Hideaway has a lower deck and an upper deck. The upper deck is the ultimate sun terrace and has a beautiful rattan sofa and a retractable awning.The lower deck is perfect for alfresco dining with a covered dining area, a children's picnic table and a fantastic cedar wood hot tub.

Modern house beautifully equipped and maintained

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more happy with the accommodation. The rooms are spacious and light, the equipment is generous and of good quality and beds and seating areas are comfortable.

The walk down into the town is easy, tho' the climb back up the hill is a little more challenging. It is all worthwhile since Dartmouth is an attractive town and well worth exploring.
