Townhouse | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The late Georgian house is located a few minutes walk from the main centre, so is quiet yet accessible to the many restaurants, pubs, shops and attractions. The property has everything needed for a family or group of four to enjoy the boats, celebratory restaurants, the beaches, the coast path, National Trust Gardens, River Dart Estuary.
A sheltered small private garden and timber deck are great for morning and evening relaxing. With central heating and wood burner, the property is also ideal all year round.
The autumn colours of the oak woodlands along the Dart are spectacular.

The West Country region
The South Hams is one of the most beautiful and gentle areas of England. The undulating coastline, rolling countryside, flower-filled country lanes, and dramatic moorland has something to suit every taste and interest. From sailing on the Dart, gentle riverside walks, to energetic coastal walks, fishing, or mountain biking on wild Dartmoor -all sorts of interests are catered for.
The landscape is dotted with pretty thatched cottages, delightful towns (notably Dartmouth, Kingswear, Totnes, Kingsbridge) and villages, spectacular coastline and beaches and of course it is also the home the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth. The South Hams is truly a unique area worthy of its national status as a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The Cottage is located on the edge of the historic core of Dartmouth so all the quaint historic streets, the wide selection of fine restaurants, bars, cafe's, galleries and shops, are just a few minutes walk away.
Dartmouth is arguably the finest harbour town in the South West. It has a wonderful eclectic mixture of architecture from Medieval times right through to the present day. It is renowned for its boutique shops, art galleries, delicatessens, gourmet restaurants and bars. It has something to offer everyone.
Across the water is the equally delightful village of Kingswear - a short ferry ride away.
Situated at the mouth of the beautiful River Dart, the deep water harbour is the focus and backdrop to many events. In August the famous Dartmouth Royal Regatta takes place. There is a Music Festival, a Food and Wine Festival. The waterfront bars and cafes are the perfect place to watch the world go by. For a really relaxing start to the day there is a fabulous place ( Al Fresco's) to have breakfast!
In the town centre The Flavel is the hub of all arts activities and includes a cinema, art spaces, a theatre providing film, live music, art, dance, kids clubs, cafe, workshops and rainy day events.
A short walk out of town (or ferry ride) takes you to the historic Dartmouth Castle situated in a stunning location close to the harbour mouth. Beyond the castle, the South West Coast Path provides access to further wonderful views of the Dart and open sea, access to small coves. A reasonably short circular walk from the Castle is a perfect afternoons stroll.
