About David Waldman
The owners are former hoteliers with experience in some of the finest international 5 star properties. Not surprisingly, they have very high standards and expectations when they go on holiday and they have assumed that their guests will share these expectations. By putting all their experience and knowledge they have created a fabulous holiday home in which they are sure you can create your very own special memories.
David Waldman purchased this House in 2009
Why David Waldman chose Kingswear
My husband and I have our own, very demanding event management business and find it impossible to go abroad for holidays. For 4 years, we searched for the perfect spot to create a holiday home to retreat to away from the stresses of daily life. We discovered Dartmouth on a dark, wet January night and knew straight away it was the place to be! Bought Penwill in 2009 as we knew it would be a fabulous holiday home, cosy in Winter and cool in Summer. Spent months renovating, decorating and loved buying gorgeous furniture and accessories to make it a luxurious home from home. Dartmouth has something to offer to everyone at any time of the year. Once there you feel as if you are on a different planet, completely away from the stresses of daily life, it won't take long to adjust to 'Devon time'.
What makes this House unique
Penwill is only 4 minutes walk from the centre, however when you are sitting out in the evening sun enjoying your favourite tipple you would think that you were a million miles from anywhere. The design of the property, makes it a very secluded spot tucked away from the prying, envious eyes of other holidaymakers. South Ford Road is a very quiet road, with no through traffic. The property has its own private garage, which is essential in Dartmouth and saves you driving around for literally hours looking for a space.

Fantastic property and perfect location!
We stayed at Penwill for a long weekend and it was absolutely perfect! Just a couple of minutes walk and you're in the town centre. Lovely clean property and great communication with the owner. We would 100% recommend this property and hope to stay again on future visits to Dartmouth.
My Husband and me had a perfect stay at Penwill. It has everything and more you need for a holiday let. The Owners communication was brilliant. We will definitely be back !!!!
Thank you 😁😁😁😁
Stunning apartment in prime Dartmouth location
What a wonderful apartment, just a couple of minutes walk from Dartmouth town. We had a lovely time in Penwill and couldn't have asked for better hosts. The apartment was furnished to perfection with all modern conveniences. The location is stunning, just a short stroll to the harbour where there are so many wonderful cafes and restaurants (too many to do on just one trip). You can get the ferry to Kingswear and then the steam train to Paignton. If you are visiting Dartmouth, this is the perfect place to stay and when we go back, we will definitely be returning to Penwill.
Comfortable and within short walk of the town centre
Pro - Modern, clean, warm and well located property. Lovely to be able to walk into town and take advantage of all the Royal Dart Hotel has to offer! Really nice and quiet. Good to have garage facility but a smaller car than our Volvo S70 would be easier to manoeuvre.
Very well appointed and lovely fluffy towels. Recommend a visit to Singing Kettle, Royal Dart Hotel and Clayton Fishacre National Trust Property.
Con - Steps down to the property and up a steep hill on the way back from the town centre but no trouble if you don't have any health issues.
Beds could be a little softer but would definitately visit again.
Lovely property, ideal location
We really enjoyed our stay at Penwill, it's such a lovely property; very clean, modern decor, but still retains lots of character. The property is a 5-10 minute walk to town where there are several good restaurants and lovely little shops. Perfect base for the weekend and we loved the snug downstairs.
Quite Simply The Best
What a marvelous property to be able to stay in Dartmouth in. Dartmouth itself is a joy - whatever the weather - and Penwill just made the whole week's holiday that much better. Lots of space, clean, tidy and so well equipped that we just could not fault it.
Following the faultless directions, the first approach to the cottage up the narrow road is a bit daunting but once completed, you could do it with your eyes shut (although I wouldn't advise it!) - and the garage you will find is such a bonus!
Lots of games, books and videos to play with including a Wii, and a telly in the bedrooms as well as a large screen in the front room made it more home from home than in reality.
We will be back again so please leave space for us!
