Barrington House is an elegant historical Victorian property standing on its own gorgeous grounds, beautifully restored and furnished with unbelievable views of the River Dart. It is a haven of peace and tranquility yet only a short stroll down to the heart of Dartmouth.
Most importantly, it is our home that we love to share with visitors. We have a stunning self-catering property called The Hideaway set within the grounds which offers the chance of an exclusive and unforgettable stay for between 2 and 6 guests. It more than satisfies all prerequisites for an idyllic self catering holiday – the space to spread out, comfortable and luxurious accommodation, personal and thoughtful touches and a unique and beautiful setting.The Hideaway is a fantastic family friendly bolthole. With its own private entrance, off street parking, upper sun terrace and lower garden patio you will have plenty of space to relax and unwind. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a beautiful kitchen and an enormous living room with fantastic panoramic views of the countryside and out to sea. It is spacious, luxurious and a home you'd love to move into.
We are very baby and child friendly and have an endless list of baby equipment available.
We have 2 other equally fantastic properties to rent - The Glasshouse and The Penthouse.

We are so close to so many beautiful beaches.
The award-winning, Blackpool Sands beach is within 10 minutes drive of the house and recently earned the accolade of being named Britain's Best Family Beach by Conde Nast Traveller and we'd tend to agree thanks to its handy car parking, cafe serving healthy kids meals and brilliant sand pit, which is ideal for little ones to sit and play in safety, as well as the wide sandy bay with shallow waters.
A little further afield there's Paignton Zoo, which has a great focus on conservation and animal welfare, as well as handy indoor soft play areas, should the weather not be ideal. There's also the fantastic Pennywell Farm Park with its animal feeding sessions, adorable miniature pigs and handy indoor play area. Steam train enthusiasts should head to Kingswear where a Thomas-a-like puffs up and down the coast thrilling little fans. Whilst the miniature pony centre at nearby Moretonhampstead is generally a big hit with mini riders too.
Barrington House nestles on a hillside just 10 minutes walk from the very picturesque Georgian harbour town of Dartmouth. Known as one of the UK's most popular yachting havens, the town boasts a great selection of independent boutiques, bistros, cafes and convenient shops along its pretty cobbled streets.
Dartmouth is a wonderful bustling town offering something for everyone:
Crab fishing, cinema, pirate park, putting green and the best ice cream flavours for the little ones.
Beautiful boutiques, shoe shops, swim shops, home wares shops and galleries for the grown ups
Quaint and quirky pubs, award winning restaurants, wonderful delies and the best fish and chips for the whole family.
Foodies will not be disappointed, as well as the HQ of Riverfood Organics with its acclaimed kitchen cafe, there's the lovely Sharpham Wine and Cheese outlet with its vineyard and river tours with tastings, plus its own onsite cafe too. Dartmouth also boasts a wide selection of well respected restaurants from fine dining at The Angel or Seahorse, to gourmet fish and chips to eat in or take-away at Mitch Tonk's family-friendly Rockfish Seafood & Chips.
