Dartmouth, Devon

Comfy, light-filled bedrooms in a slate-clad house; and a wildflower-bright garden. Walk the South West Coast Path, sail and fish the Dart


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


Neat, tidy and suitably naval for the centre of Dartmouth: a slim slate-clad house with a bright blue porch and ice cream-stripy curtains at the window. No clutter inside, either – just a stylish, clean-lined sitting room with a log-burner and flock of wooden seagulls, and a galley kitchen with bold red, black and white tiles and pretty ceramic mugs. Scamper up to comfy, light-filled bedrooms, a decent bathroom and views over town to the harbour – Dartmouth’s thriving centre is a two-minute trot down 30 (or so) steps. Follow the sun: munch breakfast in the wildflower-bright front garden; take the portable barbecue to a pretty cove; sip sunset drinks on the rear wooden deck that spills out from the main bedroom. There’s a handy covered drying area for wetsuits and walking boots. Dartmouth is famous for its Royal Regatta, naval college and colourful harbour, but this steep seaside town offers plenty more: superb walks on the South West Coast Path, sailing and fishing on the Dart in Dittisham, Blackpool Sands beach, music and food festivals, good restaurants and pubs. Just lovely.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Mark & Christine Ellerby

  • We are within 10 minutes of the River Dart harbour wall and Ferries to Ditsum, Greenway (Agatha Christie), Totnes (trains station) Kingswear so cars are an optional extra
  • Dartmouth is rapidly becoming food capital of Devon. Autumn Food Festival in October, Mitch Tonks 'Seahorse' (Observer Food Monthly Restaurant of Year 2012 and now Good Food Guide Award Winners 2013) and many other restaurants / suppliers. Come and enjoy!
  • The cottage is situated in the historic core of this beautiful harbourside town, yet, it is away from the busy waterside streets so is very quiet and private.
  • We currently have a perfect record of 13 five star reviews from TripAdvisor.. well worth a look to see what other guests have said about us!
  • The historic town of Totnes is about 25 minutes away by road, but hey, why not arrive by mainline train from London, and catch the ferry down the Dart and have a car free holiday with us. Friends from France have managed this from Brittany.
  • If you really have to, WiFi is available at the house via a BT Hotspot nearby. It costs about £6 a day (2017). Many other WiFi places in town, maybe the best is Alf Rescoes where WiFi combines with best breakfast in Devon!!
