About Max Manners

We fell in love with Dartmouth and had to buy this cottage because of the wonderful views and location.

We have only used good quality new furniture and fittings in Rose Cottage.

Rose Cottage is equipped with everything you need during a family holiday.

We were attracted to Dartmouth because of the wonderful scenery and fantastic range of specialist shops and restaurants, very few national chains except M&S, Boots, Banks, Sainsbury.

Jill makes a seasonal feature of the flower beds, if guests have time we would appreciate them watering the plants.

The local ARTS centre - The Flavel - offers a wide range of the arts from current release films to international events to recitals, etc.

We are very interested in completing a house swap with you at any time of year.

Max Manners purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Max Manners chose South Hams

Location, Location, Location - the best view of Dartmouth and the R Dart estuary.

Dartmouth, South Hams, Devon is a very well cared for area with wonderful people, a mini Med. climate, super restaurants, places to visit, beaches, walks, etc.

A local steam train is linked to a ferry trip to Totnes and an open bus to Paignton.

Great walks linked to bus routes and ferries enables you to walk half way and return by bus, steam train or ferry.

Dartmouth is NOT a "Kiss me Quick" location. It has a large range of art galleries, art related shops and specialist shops that you will only see in Dartmouth.

The local Flavel Arts Centre has a catholic range of entertainment ranging from national names to "art house".

What makes this cottage unique

Its a great village with free on road parking. We visit Rose Cottage every month and can always park within 20 yards, except Dartmouth Royal Regatta week which is at the end of August.

Many guests leave the car parked for the week and just walk, use the ferry, steam train or bus - its very relaxing.

The view from all the rooms and garden, including the loo, is perfection, no camera can do it justice. The night view is even better, who needs a TV or Broadband - but we have both.

Dartmouth has a Marks & Spencer Food Hall, a large Sainsbury's, Co-Op and lots of small local shops and restaurants ranging from Michelin starred to corner cafe's and pubs with food.

Lots of locations specifically aimed at children ranging from crab fishing to a theme park.

I've never liked a view more

  • 5 of 5

Rose Cottage is well up there among the best holiday homes we've rented and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The house itself is impeccable and the communication with the owners rapid and reliable. But the main thing is the view: it's hard to capture in pictures just how fine it is, and to have that view every morning and return to it each evening was something special.

If you're touring the many beauties of south/central Devon, the charm of this location easily makes up for the few extra minutes' driving time. The National Trust's Coleton Fishacre estate, walkable or a short drive away, is idyllic (better than many of their more famous properties) and the many local walks along river or coast are also exceptional. This is a lovely corner of the world, so much so that the many local attractions, like steam trains and river cruises, seem almost superfluous.

Well wolrth

  • 4 of 5

A lovely comfortable cottage and well appointed. The view more than makes up for the 53 steps up to the road. It takes a couple of days to get used to them and build up some stamina but they are do-able. The double bed in the main bedroom is very comfortable, which is not always so in holiday cottages. Would recommend it to anyone, as long you are fit. A brilliant base to tour Devon and go into Cornwall.

Very comfortable cottage with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

Very Comfortable with all necessary appliances. The view was wonderful especially at night. Lovely walks. The steam train a definite attraction. The regular ferry very good. We only used the car once during our stay which in its self was a bonus.

Really enjoyable relaxing holiday.

Just got back from a weeks stay at this little gem of a property. The owners should be proud of the cleanliness & upkeep of this beautiful cottage. From the initial contact to the day we arrived Max made the experience a pleasure. After a chance meeting the day we arrived we found Max & Jill to be both friendly & welcoming.

As to the cottage itself, where do I start, breath-taking views of Dartmouth & the busy river. The pictures simply do not do the views justice. Everything you could need for a quiet break. Had lovely meals in The Rockfish Restaurant & The Floating Bridge Pub.

The only downside to the location is the steep banks & steps that need traversing but I suppose you need to climb to be rewarded with the spectacular views.

On the whole the glorious weather was a bonus to a relaxing enjoyable week. Highly recommended.

Thank you Max & Jill.

What a find. The most magnificent location.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived after a long drive we found the place easily with helpful instructions provided. As soon as we descended the steps to the cottage and saw the magnificent view over towards Dartmouth we were on HOLIDAY. The cottage itself is well laid out, clean and equipped offering all we needed for a comfortable stay.

Being located high up on the headland gives great views but also means going up and down steep hills to get to the ferry to Dartmouth,

We are keen walkers and the South West Coastal path is right on the doorstep.

It was great fun to be able to catch the ferry and many boat trips available.

Rockfish restaurant was quirky and fish really fresh. Great selection of individual shops in Dartmouth.

I would recommend the property to anyone fit and able..By the way great neighbours.
