"Great outdoor views but needs a bit of a refresh"
Loved the situation of this spacious house and the views from its outdoor decks but we found some aspects of the inside and outside rather disappointing. Firstly there were some issues of cleanliness… More
So pleased you loved the spacious and idyllic property. The views from this house are breathtaking. We are concerned you said the cleanliness was not up to scratch as normally we are praised for how spotless the properties are, however, we have since spoken to the cleaners who will be making an effort to double check their houses are cleaned properly. When the owners visit, we will be advising them of the different areas of concern and hence improving the property to ensure the comfort of our guests is paramount. We thank you again for staying with Blueriver cottages and hope you enjoyed beautiful Dartmouth.

"A few problems here"
I'm sure most people booking this property are drawn by the views, and they certainly are stunning. We had many a late afternoon sat in the sun watching the world go by on the river below. Note t… More
Thank you for your review.
We are sorry you feel that way about Darte House especially as we have received such great feedback about the property from so many guests in the past. It is somewhat of a surprise and disappointment to us to have read the comments in your review.
Turning to the parking first, Dartmouth is nestled in the beautiful Dart Valley and is naturally hilly with winding narrow roads all over town. Above Town is a narrow road and believe me it is very much a luxury to have parking for not one but two cars on Above Town. We have had a number of 4x4s at Darte House and none of the guests previously have ever complained about access.
Secondly, Darte house is in a very sought after location. The Owners are proud of their property and keep it very well maintained. Yes it is up for sale but this does not affect the holiday lettings at the property with each booking being honoured by both Blueriver and the Owner. The property is kept in good order 'because' it is up for sale.
Lastly, the wine is bought by me from my old Royal Marines friend and colleague who runs the local Off Licence. This not only supports local business but it is appreciated by virtually all our guests, apart from one, and that is you, who are grateful that we have given something to them for nothing. We have had fantastic feedback from our guests and nothing but appreciation for the local fudge, jam and wine that we leave as a complimentary gift for our guests.
Again I am sorry you feel so strongly about Darte House and the services we have delivered. Of course, Trip Advisor is a relatively unforgiving medium that many can vent even their mildest frustrations on, even if they are unfair and unwarranted.
To all prospective guests, please do not be put off by this review, the property is wonderful and the service we deliver is fine, as an ex Royal Marine, you have my word!

"Lovely House very comfortable and fantastic views"
We stayed here for New Years, Dartmouth is great fun at that time of year. No one had been in the house before us so it was very cold and took a while to warm up, bet it's amazing in the summer w… More
Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review.
Dartmouth certainly is a fantastic place to be during the holiday season and the parking at Darte is certainly a bonus.
We are sorry to hear that the property was not warm when you arrived, this is an unusual occurrence as we strive to ensure heating is on for guest arrival.
We are pleased you found the property to be well equipped and comfortable and you enjoyed the beautiful views.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
