Self Catering, Grade II Listed Town House With River And Sea Views



Updated: 17-Sep-2016
Townhouse in Dartmouth, South Devon, England - Ideal For Strolling Into Town

Situated in the heart of Dartmouth, At Last is a four-story, end-of-terrace, Grade II listed town house with views across the river Dart to Kingswear and out to sea. It's position makes it ideal for strolling to the shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants as it is just above Bayards Cove (the oldest part of Dartmouth's harbour with cobbled quay side). Boasting 3 bedrooms, 1 with an en-suite shower room, a galley-style kitchen and first floor living/dining room which has superb panoramic views of the River Dart including broadband internet connection, 3 TV's with DVD players makes it a perfect holiday home to relax and unwind with family or friends.

Please note that due to the age of the property there is a typical, steep and narrowish staircase which has rope rails that winds up through to the middle of the house. Therefore the property may not be suitable for the elderly or for very young children.

About the Owner

I have a family of 4 and have always enjoyed visiting Devon and the South Hams area with my family, obviously Dartmouth. It holds a special place in my heart as I stayed there with my own parents when I was younger.

Lovely property with lots of nice extra touches. Very clean.

Dartmouth is a lovely town and the house has great views across the river from the lounge and main bedroom. Property well equipped and maintained and situated very close to the town so everything we needed was on our doorstep.

Great central location & fab views !

  • 5 of 5

The whole family had a great time at 'At Last' in Dartmouth. It was so handy for walking everywhere as it is has a great central location. The pub and the fish & chip shop was a 2 minute walk away as well as the highly recommended Cafe Alf Resco on lower street !! Perfect for a weeks holiday! The town house itself was well stocked with everything you need and the views were amazing especially to wake up to ! Overall we had a lovely time for a family of 4 ( 2 adults and 2 children). Nicola is always contactable and was very sweet to have a bottle of wine waiting for you! Thanks again...we will be back!

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

I have been visiting Dartmouth for over 35yrs now and have been renting cottages for the last 5yrs. 'At Last' has the best views - by far!

When you wake up and can look down the river to the castle, without even lifting your head off the pillow, you know you are staying in a very special place.

The location is perfect for nipping the kids down to Bayards Cove for a quick crabbing session, while you enjoy a drink in the sunshine overlooking the water, then a short stroll back to the cottage to freshen up before walking down into town for dinner.

We decided to watch the Regatta fireworks from the cottage one evening and we all decided that it was the best view we had ever had of the display.

The stairs are steep, but proved absolutely no problem for us (or the dog) and in fact improved the character of the cottage even more. There is plenty of space for everyone and the kids loved having the top floor as their own space.

Don't want to make the review too good, in case everyone decides to stay here and it isn't available for us next year :-)

Nice and charming house with a great view!

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice week in this charming house i Dartmouth. Dartmouth is a very beautiful city to visit, and the old, charming house makes the right atmosphere for relaxing and enjoying Dartmouth and surounding areas. The house was nice and clean,and Nicola Cotton was helpful and sweet. We will recommend this place to our friends and family in Denmark - and to everybody else..

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a week's getaway. We have 3 children, and they could have all slept in the top room which has a double bunk and a single, but as there are still two other good size double bedrooms, we spread around. a very up and down house, with steep stairs, but that all added the seaside feeling, like on boats - and we took a lot of boats. you can see the lower ferry from the window which is a good one to catch to take the steam train directly opposite in Kinsgwear. The house is very central to the old town, so we walked out every day to do sight see, go crabbing, and end the day in one of the town's excellent restaurants. Nicola was very helpful, and the bottle of wine on arrival after travelling many hours in the car to get there went down very well. Views from the house are excellent too.

From the Owner

We bought the house 3 years ago and since then have done some refurb work to make it very homely and give it a nice feel. The views are truly wonderful. We fell in love with house for it's position and that special quintessential feel. All of Dartmouth's delights are right on our doorstep.
