A gem of a place

  • 5 of 5

A stunning property right in the heart of Dartmouth. It is hidden up some steep steps and even with the regatta was very quiet and peaceful. It was spotlessly clean and nice welcome touches such as a scones, clotted cream and a bottle of wine. It is like a tardis - it felt spacious. Well equipped, the only think lacking was a washing machine - however there is a nice laundrette two minutes walk away so not a problem. We really fell in love with the place and Dartmouth. Blackpool Sands is a must if you want a beach. We are seriously considering a return visit.

Lovely Holiday Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Overall the property was very good and the little touches like leaving a pint of milk , a bottle of wine and the fresh scones and cream were a thoughtful touch. The property was in an excellent location being only a few minutes walk from the shops. The owners customer service was also very good and i would not hesitate recommending it. There are also plenty of tourist information books left here for you to go sightseeing. There is no garden at this property, and that maybe an issue for some holidaymakers but as long as your aware of this there would be no other problem with this rental. We did some lovely walks around Dartmouth and Kingswear ( just a short boat ride @ £2.50 return) all found from the tourist information books provided. There is a great pub called the Floating Boat that does fantastic food and large portions, although the drinks a pricey.

Gorgeous home from home in the heart of Dartmouth!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay in Dartmouth recently, a picturesque town and a lovely place to call home. 20 Browns Hill is a well equipped base in the heart of Dartmouth- close to all the action and yet tucked away enough to enjoy some down time. Lovely modern interior and set out conveniently over three floors- ideal for a family. House was clean and tidy, and the fridge even had some welcome in essentials- scones, jam and wine! Thank you for a lovely stay- we'll be back!

Tranquility

  • 4 of 5

This is a tardis of a cottage. Really clean and well decorated and furnished. It is slap bang in the middle of Dartmouth but off the beaten track. Just about everything in Dartmouth is within 5 minutes walk. Fantastic for children. The park is a couple of minutes away and of course crabbing almost on the doorstep. For a small family I thought the house was perfection. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to go again.

Paul.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely bright,clean cottage, we took advantage of the car parking pass touring around South Hams, but also due to its central location enjoyed walking, boat and steam train trips during our stay and we would certainly recommend this cottage.

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

Dartmouth itself has two small coves (Castle Cove and Sugary Cove) close to its Castle, which is a 1 mile walk (or short boat ride) from the centre of town. The famous Blue Flag beach of Blackpool Sands is only 15 minute drive away with a super cafe/restaurant, whilst Slapton Sands, offering a 3 mile stretch of pebble beach, is a further 5 minutes away. Bigbury on Sea beach is a sandy beach within an area of outstanding natural beauty and is just over 30 minutes drive from Dartmouth.

Travel:

Nearest airport is at Exeter (40 miles). Nearest railway station is Totnes (12 miles away), with a bus service to Dartmouth. National rail services also to Paignton with bus service to Kingswear. Whilst the town itself has lots to offer the holidaymaker, a car would be recommended if you wish to explore the surrounding area.

Further Details:

Dartmouth is situated in the unspoilt South Hams, in Devon, and the area is a wonderful destination, offering something for everyone. You can wander around Dartmouth’s quaint, cobbled streets, visiting its galleries and individual shops and cafes, enjoy a boat trip out to sea, or down river to historic Totnes or Dittisham. Take the ferry across the river to Kingswear and catch a steam train ride on the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway. A walk, or boat ride, to Dartmouth Castle affords wonderful views of the town, the river and the coast beyond and the Britannia Royal Naval College perches on the hill providing a majestic backdrop to the historic streets and alleyways within the town itself. You may wish to while away a lazy afternoon watching the activity on the busy waterfront, or try your hand at crabbing off the Embankment. Dartmouth enjoys many great restaurants and pubs, or if you want to eat in, the town has an M&S food and a Co-op store as well as delicatessens and bakeries to tempt you. The town enjoys a cinema/arts centre, museum, gardens, tennis courts, park with children’s play area and a tourist information centre which can provide information on local attractions, places to visit, and events taking place in the town and surrounding area.

On our doorstep is the award winning shingle beach at Blackpool Sands (4 miles away), with the 3 mile stretch of pebble beach at Slapton Sands a further 5 minutes’ drive beyond that. The National Trust properties of “Greenway” (Agatha Christie’s former home) and Coleton Fishacre (an Arts and Crafts style house built for Rupert D’Oyly Carte) are close by. Dittisham, Totnes, Dartmoor and the South Hams and Torbay areas are easily reached for those who want to explore the surrounding area. Woodlands Family Theme Park is on the outskirts of the town, open March to November.
