'Ferry View' holiday home Dartmouth.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely property met ,or exceeded, all of our expectations. Clean, spacious and comfortable.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Dartmouth , which was an easy 5 minute stroll from the house. Beautiful views across the estuary - especially from the bedroom windows.

Information/contact with the owners was excellent. They have obviously put a lot of thought into making their property as welcoming and comfortable as possible. Many thanks Tom and Sarah. Got a feeling we'll be back.

Delightful Dartmouth

  • 5 of 5

Ferry View is an excellent accommodation. It easily catered for our group of six individuals with comfort and location. The house is surprisingly large, clean, well look after and has everything you need for a break away with a very short walk into Dartmouth for anything else. We were able to park two cars, nearby, on the road (as restrictions not yet started) and one car in the car park with the permit provided. Our cars never moved over the weekend as there were some great walks to do, beware....they are hilly, but the views are worth it. Good communication with Sarah who made us feel very welcome. Would recommend and hope to visit again sometime.

A very well appointed and comfortable house with fine views from bedroom windows.

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you need including the magnificent views over the river, particularly the one from the top floor bedroom. Only a short walk from the centre of Dartmouth, it is ideally located for the shops, restaurants and, of course, the riverfront. Car parking is always difficult in Dartmouth and this was made worse by a food festival that was running when we arrived; however the delights of Dartmouth will always win and we are looking forward to our next visit.

Well equipped cottage, super views, near centre

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious cottage. Clean, extremely well equipped (including plenty of herbs and spices as well as everything you could need in the kitchen, a high chair, bouncy baby seat etc!)

Went with our toddler and baby, and had visits from both sets of grandparents. Plenty of space for everyone to relax and little one to zoom about.

Dartmouth is great and cottage is well situated near centre. Parking is a little tricky if more than one car, but permit available for car park in centre is also useful at other car parks nearby, good when visiting other parts of the South Hams.

Owner very helpful and prompt at replying.

Thanks for a great holiday.
