This property is set back from the centre of Dartmouth, however is only a two minute walk to the centre of town, and all the restaurants and shops that Dartmouth has to offer. The property itself has been recently refurbished to a high standard and comes with one large double bedroom and a twin room with a bunk beds. There is a double sofa bed in the living area, however the property is not really suitable for more than four people. The house has a good sized roof garden with BBQ and also a garage adjacent to the property, always a bonus in Dartmouth!

About Angela Addy
Both of us have roots in Dartmouth and we had been looking for a property in a nice location there for a while when we found The Stables in 2006. We instantly fell in love with the house and especially with the south facing decking, which can be enjoyed at any time of year. The property did require some refurbishment which took us a number of years to complete. Now we have an easy to care for, very social place to enjoy and share with family and friends. We do live locally (in Totnes another gem of South Devon) but being in the Heart of Dartmouth is still special. It is an easy 5 minute stroll to friendly pubs, great restaurants, unique shops and the bustling harbour.
Angela Addy purchased this House in 2006
Why Angela Addy chose Dartmouth
We adore alfresco eating on the terrace, it's a real sun trap.

Lovely House in Dartmouth
A great place to stay for enjoying Dartmouth and the surrounding area.
Comfortable house but difficult access
There are thirty-three mostly uneven steps from the garage to the patio level of the house and a further fourteen to the bedroom level. The front door is at bedroom level but the road is inaccessible for cars. Unfairly, there is no mention of any of this in any of the information on the property. Luggage handling proved to be a difficulty for this elderly but mobile couple.
In all other respects the house was satisfactory and there is only a short, level walk to the town centre from the garage level.
Great location and perfect for a family of four
A perfect base for an incredible holiday.
The house is a home from home, all comforts and immaculately looked after. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. It is perfectly situated in the town with only minutes to walk to the shops, restaurants and harbor. Having the garage was just the icing on the cake. The roof terrace was a great place to have breakfast in the sunshine and relax after a fun day out. We cannot recommend it enough and will definitely return soon.
We love that our guests enjoy the house as much as we do.
Beautiful well equipped property 2 minutes walk from Dartmouth's main street and 5 mins to the river
The property had everything we could ever need and was extremely clean and obviously cared for. The welcome basket was a lovely touch. The location was fantastic and the garage was an added bonus. The outside area was private but had lovely views of the valley down towards the river. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again.
Lovely to know we meet our visitors needs. Once people find us they often return.
Very enjoyable stay in a comfortable property
We stayed for 3 nights in this very comfortable property, only five minutes walk from the town centre and embarkation points for exploring the River Dart. The weather was excellent during our stay.
Dartmouth is a great place for a long weekend
Special interest holidays:
Water sports available on the river, please see local TIC for further information
Dartmouth is close to many beautiful beaches, the most popular of which is Bantham which is a 30 minute drive, however there are many local beaches including Blackpool sands and Slapton, which are both a 20 minute drive.
Exeter Airport is an hour's drive, however we recommend arriving by car. The alternative would be to arrive by train at Paignton Railway Station, and take the steam train to Kingswear and across to Dartmouth by passenger ferry. This is a very lovely way to start your holiday and the property is only a few minutes walk from the jetty.
At the top of the river is Totnes, a buzzing, bohemian town famous for its coffee shops, restaurants and independent stores. A lovely trip if done by one of the river cruises on offer. Nearby is the beautiful Sharpham Vineyard Estate where you can go for tours, wine tasting sessions or just a stroll through the Vineyard and down to the river. Lovely open air restaurant, feels very European. National Trust properties including Agatha Christie's house and Collaton Fishacre just across the river.
Local Spar on road directly in front of property, large Sainsburys at top of town, M&S, small Co-op in centre of town and a selection of delicatessens all within a five minute walk of the house. Many wonderful and well renowned restaurants to suit all budgets, the pricier restaurants are on the water front but are an absolute must. Mitch Tonks' new "Rock Fish" is cheap and cheerful, and family orientated. Food delicious with a good selection of wines. At least once during your visit, you should eat at Al Frescos, a favourite with the locals for breakfast and brunch. Many traditional pubs and bars, and a good cocktail lounge as well.
All major banks are available.
Local attractions include river trips, tours around the Royal Dartmouth Naval College, walks up to and around Dartmouth Castle, a chocolaterie and Dartmouth Ice Cream Company - delish!
Please see the Dartmouth website for the many events and festivals on offer over the year including the famous Dartmouth music festival, comedy festival, food festival, the new crab festival, and of course Dartmouth Royal Regatta.
