The view of the River Dart from the living room window is breathtaking. The apartment, which dates from the time of Vice Admiral Lord Nelson, comprises a bedroom, bathroom, fully fitted kitchen and living room on the first floor, and a bedroom and en-suite bathroom on the ground floor. There are external doors to both floors. Dartmouth has many craft shops, restaurants and hostelries, and is an ideal base from which to explore the River Dart and south west coast, whether on foot, by boat, steam train or car, as well as the nearby towns of Totnes, Dartington, Kingsbridge and Salcombe, and Dartmoor itself.
Guest Book Comments: "Our 4th. visit to Dartmouth. The best accomodation by far; warm & welcoming, wanting for nothing & spotlessly clean." Sue & Steve, Essex (Sept. 2012); "We came by train & found public transport very good down here. The Apartment is wonderful & the view unbeatable. Thank you for a marvellous holiday." Norma & Carl, Kent (Sept. 2012); Thank you for making your wonderful residence available. After a number of visits to England we were unaware such a beautiful place existed." Alan & Iris, Melbourne (Sept. 2012).

The England region

With temperatures in the summer that enable sunbathing and swimming in the sea, beautiful countryside to explore, unspoilt country lanes leading to remote beaches, excellent walking and fishing, scenic drives along the coast and Dartmoor only half an hour away, this part of Devon has it all. A ferry will take you to the charming village of Dittisham, and Agatha Christie's house above the Dart, and a steamer to the historic market town of Totnes. You can take a steam train from Kingswear to Paignton, a bus to Totnes and a boat from there back to Dartmouth. The craft centre at Dartington and Buckfast Abbey are nearby.

South Town

The ancient port of Dartmouth, from which the Mayflower set sail for America in 1620, is home to the Britannia Royal Naval College (which can be visited), and has many craft and boutique shops, restaurants and olde worlde pubs, as well as being an important yachting centre. The sea fishing is excellent. There is always something going on in town, and there are annual music, Shakespeare, drama, comedy, arts and crafts, Agatha Christie, walking, fishing, and food festivals, as well as the Royal Regatta, the largest in England after Cowes.
