About Sheila McAlister

We have had a holiday home for 30 years, firstly in Southern Spain and then Tuscany.

We decided to relocate to Dartmouth in 2012 as the town and the surrounding countryside exactly suited our requirements.

Sheila McAlister purchased this house in 2012

Why Sheila McAlister chose South Hams

The town offers great restaurants, cultural events and all facilities and activities associated with boating in the estuary and at sea.

The South West Coast Path offers stunning views of the bays, coves and countryside.

Perfect house for our family break, catered for everyone aged two to 70! Very well equipped and comfortable, everything has clearly been thought through and it felt like a home from home. Beautiful views from the immaculate and quirky garden. Great communication from the owners at all times. Highly recommend; we’d love to stay here again.

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This really was a great house! It was very well equipped and we felt very at home there. It's in a great location with lovely views with the added bonus of a parking space, which seem to be few and far between in Dartmouth. The only down side was that we had to come home! We will definitely be staying again. Highly recommended.

Fabulous Family Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

The house and location was amazing. The house had everything a family needed and the beds were so comfortable. The views from the house over Dartmouth were fabulous and sitting at the table every morning looking out after Dartmouth was lovely.

I have recommended this house to my family and friends and we will definately be booking again.
