Whether you’re in search of a romantic retreat or a family holiday, this charming house on River Dart is a fantastic option boasting beautiful views and homely decor. Just half a mile away you can try your hand at a number of water sports on the river, be it sailing, kayaking, paddleboarding or boating.

With a bay window gazing out to the river, the living room is a perfect place to relax, be it on the window seat, the sofa or one of the armchairs. In the centre of the room is a quaint dining table to seat four where meals can be enjoyed whilst embracing the views, or board games can be played for an entertaining evening in your holiday home. The kitchen has a country style with exposed beams along the ceiling and pretty cabinets, creating an enjoyable space for the chef of the family to fix up a feast. Completing the ground floor is a lovely shower room. On the first floor there is an additional family bathroom with a bathtub, as well as a master bedroom boasting a decorative fireplace as the focal point. Finally, there is a king-size bedroom which can be made up as a twin on request, also enjoying a feature fireplace. When the sun is shining, make your way out onto the terrace to watch the world go by with a drink of your choice in hand.

Dartmouth itself is home to two secluded shingle beaches, Castle Cove (1 mile) and Sugary Cove (1 mile) which remain quiet for most of the year for those looking to enjoy a little peace by the sea. Blackpool Sands (3 miles) is one of the most well-loved family options for a beach trip, and from here, you can join a stretch of the South West Coast Path for an adventurous walk along the rugged coast to soak in the natural beauty of this area ensuring something for everyone. Alternatively, opt to take the trail from Dartmouth to Dittisham (9 miles) to wander beneath an ancient woodland, down pretty country lanes to the colourful village to stop off for a tasty treat.

Would like to have had more comfortable furniture in sitting room. Less style more comfort. Otherwise everything else excellent.

Wonderfully located property, tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and very well equipped with top quality stuff. Really appreciated the super king sized beds with good linen. The best booking experience from Marsdens/Original (and I have rented a LOT of holiday properties over the years), with plenty of useful reminders of all that information tRead morehat you usually forget before you get there. Only small criticism is that there were absolutely no cooking basics in the kitchen - no salt and pepper, no oil etc. I understand that was probably necessary during Covid, but could surely be relaxed now. I hope to return. Hide

Lovely holiday home with nice view on the river and Kingswear. Very quiet location, on the South West Coast Path and just 2 minutes walking from river quay and shops.
