14 Ferndale is a delightful terraced cottage that has been thoughtfully redecorated and very comfortably furnished. A nautical theme is present throughout the property reminding you that you are very close to the beautiful South Devon coastline and the sea.
The lounge/diner has a very light and airy feel to it and offers a real family living space where you can choose whether to play games on the round wooden dining room table or chill out with a glass of wine in the lounge.
The dining room features a round wooden dining room table and four chairs making it perfect for family meals or dining in with friends.
The kitchen has all the usual appliances and is just off the dining room making things easy when you decide to eat in for the odd night or two.
There are two double bedrooms both with white painted floor boards, again adding to the feeling that you are near to or even at sea! The master bedroom has double aspect windows with views across the valley offering a magical light show at night from the other properties' lights. Bedroom two is configured as a twin room and has views across the rear garden and towards open fields beyond. There is a sofa bed in the lounge for the odd overnight stay for one or two visitors.
The family bathroom is upstairs and is fitted out in white.
Outside there is an enclosed small courtyard and steps (which are quite steep so care should be taken with young children) that lead up to a long sloped lawn bordered by an established range of gorgeous shrubs and flowers. The garden backs onto open fields and woodland and enjoys all day sunshine, perfect for those special Pimms nights! There are steep steps up to the property. The property has its own parking area for a small/medium car to the front up a narrow access lane (please be aware that as the lane is very narrow, care should be taken whilst maneuvering). So park up, leave the car and just enjoy the delights of Dartmouth and the River Dart. This is such a great place to stay!
Parking is at the front of the property.

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 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.
