Overview

What a location! The Old Bakery is situated on one of the oldest streets in the centre of the bustling town of Dartmouth.

Orginally dating from around 1600, The Old Bakery is a Grade II Listed three storey townhouse steeped in history. This stunning house has recently been refurbished to the highest of standards whilst keeping the original charm and character. The original bread oven, which is believed to have been abandoned in the early 20th Century, has also been retained as an attractive feature.

The property offers sunny accommodation and is very comfortably furnished with a clean and neutral decor scheme. On the ground floor is the family kitchen and lounge with granite flooring throughout. There are four bedrooms, all spacious and very tastefully decorated, which include an ensuite master bedroom with a mezzanine gallery inside the room, an ideal set up for parents with young children.

Only steps away from a local deli, you can pick up freshly baked croissants in the morning or even have breakfast out the famous Cafe Alf Resco before spending the day enjoying the ancient towns cobbled streets, market and active port.

Dartmouth lies within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is ideally located for exploring the neighbouring towns and beaches of Torquay, Brixham, Salcombe and the wider South Hams. The stunning beach at Blackpool Sands is just ten minutes away by car. Woodlands Adventure Park, Agatha Christie's Greenway House, River Dart Boat cruises, fishing trips and the steam railway are all nearby, so the area is perfect for family holidays all year round, whatever the weather.

The West Country region

Devon is a popular holiday destination in South west England.The scenery and climate have made the area a favoured destination for the past 250 years. Over that time much has changed, yet much of the character and many of the local traditions have remained.

The coast and countryside are still extraordinarily beautiful, which is why more than two thirds of South Devon is carefully protected as a national asset, either in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or as part of the Dartmoor National Park.

Dartmouth

Dartmouth is characterised by its narrow lanes, stairways and corridors and plenty of medieval and Elizabethan features. It is a beautiful town steeped in history with many of the buildings dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. The oldest building in Dartmouth is the Cherub Public House which dates back as far as 1380!

The Britannia Royal Naval College famous for training the Royal Navy's Officers sits majestically overlooking the town and down the River Dart towards Kingswear and the Dartmouth Castle and out to sea. The Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway is on the Kingwear side of the river and trains run regularly offering a traditional and unique blast from the past.
