Beautiful house, very comfortable and 'home from home'. Not sure staring out of the windows is a good use of ones time but it was very relaxing! Frequent visitors to Dartmouth and we will be back!Roundell Family - 22nd October 2016
What a lovely house with spectacular views - we absolutely loved the views from all the main windows. We also loved your decor in the house, very homely and comfortable. We have had a great time in your beautiful Dartmouth, Thank you!Eleanor and Michael - 14th October 2016
Many thanks for the opportunity to stay in your very characterful property with its gorgeous views. We love Dartmouth and sitting out having lunch at the Floating Bridge watching the ferry and the world go by is one of our favourite activities.John and Angie - 30th September 2016
We have had a wonderful, relaxing week in this beautiful house with fantastic views. From fish and chips at Rockfish on the first night to a more refined meal out at Taylors - all restaurants we tried were friendly with great food. Sharpham vineyard was a lovely afternoon out and we walked the coastpath from Kingswear. Weather was wonderful! Dartmouth exceeded our expectations and Melbrake is the best place to enjoy it from.Rob & Chris - 23rd September 2016
Love the house, it has been a real family home for all of us. Spectacular spot for watching the fireworks and air displays, and the view of the river! A big thank you from us all!Nic, Kelly, Seb & Sophia - 28th August 2016
