Amazing views

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is ideally placed for everything Dartmouth has to offer, though climbing 58 stairs to reach it is not ideal for bringing in and taking out luggage or shopping, but the views alone are worth it.

There were one or two little niggles, i.e. a very loose headboard, a broken door handle to the wardrobe, and the toilet seat was loose, which were reported to Mr. Scorer, and we felt that the apartment could do with a little t.l.c. If you are a light sleeper the noise of a generator from a nearby restaurant can be annoying, otherwise a lovely relaxing week. We even saw a seal early one evening when we were watching the world go by from the balcony.

One thing which was quite upsetting was on one day I reversed parked into the allocated parking space, as it was quite difficult to reverse out onto the road the previous couple of days because of cars parking slightly across the entrance . The next morning there was a very curt note on my windscreen telling me in no uncertain terms that I was not to reverse in and should park as close to the wall as possible.

If you want a really lovely afternoon tea, or just a snack you must visit the little tea shop in Cockington Forge. It's called Weavers Cottage and everything is so fresh and very very reasonably priced. I had a high tea of tuna and mayo sandwich with salad and crisps, scone, clotted cream and jam, and all for £5.95. My friend had a cheese scone which was served with a lovely fresh salad, chutney and a large chunk of cheese. At only £4.95 it was amazing. We were only sorry we didn't have time to pay it another visit.

Fantastic week

  • 5 of 5

We have always gone abroad for our holidays but decided to try Devon for the 1st time this year. We booked the Penthouse apartment as it overlooked the river, and I am so pleased we did. The apartment was perfect for our family. A lovely size and views we couldn't tear ourselves away from. There are 2 tvs in the apartment, neither were switched on as there was constant entertainment on the river! The apartment is situated right in the heart of Dartmouth, so close to all shops, and the boat trips were all literally across the road. Location could not have been better. An amazing place to stay in a beautiful town. Its a good 8 hours from our home to Dartmouth, but it was worth every minute! I do hope we will come again, and staying in the Penthouse will be our first choice! Thank you

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Just coming to the end of a lovely holiday in Dartmouth. This apartment is in the perfect location, right on the riverfront with great views from the good sized balcony. The climb to the top of the building (56 steps!) might be difficult for some but the apartment is worth the effort. The stairs up are clean and airy and on entering the apartment it is full of light and very nicely furnished and decorated. It is equipped with everything you will need for a self catering holiday with plenty of shops very close by. Your own parking space, enough for a small car, is an added bonus in Dartmouth. The glorious weather this week together with this lovely apartment, made for a lovely holiday.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment for its proximity to the river, and it had fantastic views. It was great to watch the ferries coming and going, and could even see Dartmouth Castle (take your binoculars!).

It was very clean, comfortable and well-equipped. As it was February, we were a bit concerned that the flat might be chilly, but it was too warm if anything. Really cosy and homely.

There is a Co-Op just around the corner, and an M&S foodstore about 5 minutes' walk away. There are plenty of indedpendent shops to wander around, as well as a few chains (Fatface/Joules etc). We had a supberb breakfast at Alf Resco, and a very nice evening meal at the Dartmouth Arms.

A very pleasant stay, and would certainly return if we stay in Dartmouth again.

A lovely apartment, very well equipped. There are a number of stairs but worth it once you get to the top, excellent view over looking the river, watched the boats while the sun went down from the balcony. Simple collection of keys and allocated parking space at rear.

Great views & location

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed a great week in Dartmouth at this apartment. It was well laid out, with the different levels breaking up at space nicely.

There are a number of steps up to the apartment, but more than worth it for the view.

Having parking was excellent, especially in Dartmouth. The space is tight for a large car but again worth it for the peace of mind of knowing you had a spot to leave your car.

Dartmouth is a wonderful destination, either to just watch the boats go by or tour South Devon.
