Apartment in Maypool Nr. Dartmouth, South Devon, England - Peaceful And Secluded Location, 5 Minutes Drive To Beach With Great Walking Country All Around
Dart View is a lovely holiday home situated in a peaceful secluded location overlooking the River Dart and adjoining the National Trusts Greenway Estate. The apartment forms the upper level of a Victorian house built by a local shipbuilder in 1884. There are two flights of stairs to reach it but the views are worth it. The apartment is ideally placed for some beautiful walks along the River Dart, through woodlands or across the field to Greenway House. If you fancy going slightly further afield it is only a short walk to catch the steam train to Kingswear or Paignton or to the Greenway ferry which has services to Dittisham, Dartmouth and Totnes - the latter two offering a range of restaurants and independent shops. There are numerous beaches nearby and it is only 10 minutes by car to the seaside town of Torquay and the fishing port of Brixham.

A week in Maypool
An fabulaous week and excellent accommodation with a stunning view up the Dart. We had so much to do in this area and the apartment was very comfortable, well furnished and equipped. A great location to explore a wide area around Torbay and South Hams with the Sea and the Dart almost always in sight. Thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable.
