Pretty Cairn Cottage sits in an elevated position on one of Dartmouth's historic streets. This period property lies within the town’s conservation area with panoramic views over the River Dart. Just relax in the pretty courtyard garden and take it all in. Cairn Cottage is very comfortable, light and spacious, there’s even an open fire to cosy up to in the cooler months.
This lovely holiday home is the ideal base for exploring Dartmouth and further afield. The town’s shops, restaurants and quay are just a short walk away so you can park up the car and easily explore on foot. Regular ferries run across the River Dart and up to the lively marketing town of Totnes with its mainline railway station, good range of wholefood restaurants and independent shops.
The South Devon beaches are just a few miles away, the Dartmouth Golf and Country Club is nearby so don't forget your clubs. For a great day out we suggest getting the car ferry over the Dart and head to Paignton Zoo and Conservation park or Quay West Water Park.

We had a fantastic time at Cairn cottage, it was perfect for our needs, the views overlooking the estuary are stunning!Annabel Styche - 2nd May 2016
Cairn Cottage was exceptional, everything you could ever want in a holiday home. The property is great with so many added extras. Beautiful views over Dartmouth, and having the fields to the rear gives easy access to the costal paths and beyond.Guy & Gemma - Exeter - 30th September 2015
A lovely break in a lovely cottage
Apart from the steepness of the streets in Dartmouth (which I had forgotten about!) the stay was lovely. We couldn't fault the cottage or facilities and would definitely come back again (even with the climb....) Added to which, the service from the Blue River team was spot on. Thanks to all involved.GB - Essex - 15th September 2015
A great family holiday.
This cottage worked perfectly for our family with top floor bedrooms for children and our bedroom was very comfortable and spacious. The situation was close to town with good access to walks, and easy to get to in the car. We didn't find the steep hill an issue and having on street parking was a suprising bonus. Would definitely re-book.David from London - 22nd August 2015
We had a wonderful stay at Cairn Cottage, the weather was kind all week so we ate outside in the garden most evenings on the terrace overlooking the river as the views are stunning. The house is thoughtfully decorated and the kitchen is very well equipped, also having plenty of on street parking right outside is a rarity for Dartmouth. We look forward to returning again!Debbie Garner - Cirencester - 10th August 2015
Very enjoyable holiday
The cottage was very clean, comfortable and cosy. Ideally situated for easy walking distance to the centre of town, but it is on a steep hill so not suitable for everyone. Would recommend Cairn Cottage as a good holiday location/accomodation.Angie from Leicestershire - 10th July 2015
