A lovely property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a real gem. The location is superb! The fact there isn't a parking space outside was not an issue as the car park is just down the road.

There's everything you could need. It's really clean and it's been finished to a high quality.

I'd definitely recommend.

New Year in Dartmouth

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd visit to this property and the reason we keep returning is it being so well maintained, its facilities,being very cosy and close to all shops and activities in Dartmouth.We had looked at other locations to spend the New Year but this property plus Dartmouth drew us back like a magnet.The property is exceptional and standards have been maintained since we first visited 2 years ago.We would like to thank the owners for the goodies of chocolates and a bottle of wine which was eagerly consumed. To anyone thinking of visiting Dartmouth in 2017 make this property your first choice you will not be disappointed.

A gem of a place

  • 5 of 5

A stunning property right in the heart of Dartmouth. It is hidden up some steep steps and even with the regatta was very quiet and peaceful. It was spotlessly clean and nice welcome touches such as a scones, clotted cream and a bottle of wine. It is like a tardis - it felt spacious. Well equipped, the only think lacking was a washing machine - however there is a nice laundrette two minutes walk away so not a problem. We really fell in love with the place and Dartmouth. Blackpool Sands is a must if you want a beach. We are seriously considering a return visit.

Lovely Holiday Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Overall the property was very good and the little touches like leaving a pint of milk , a bottle of wine and the fresh scones and cream were a thoughtful touch. The property was in an excellent location being only a few minutes walk from the shops. The owners customer service was also very good and i would not hesitate recommending it. There are also plenty of tourist information books left here for you to go sightseeing. There is no garden at this property, and that maybe an issue for some holidaymakers but as long as your aware of this there would be no other problem with this rental. We did some lovely walks around Dartmouth and Kingswear ( just a short boat ride @ £2.50 return) all found from the tourist information books provided. There is a great pub called the Floating Boat that does fantastic food and large portions, although the drinks a pricey.

Gorgeous home from home in the heart of Dartmouth!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay in Dartmouth recently, a picturesque town and a lovely place to call home. 20 Browns Hill is a well equipped base in the heart of Dartmouth- close to all the action and yet tucked away enough to enjoy some down time. Lovely modern interior and set out conveniently over three floors- ideal for a family. House was clean and tidy, and the fridge even had some welcome in essentials- scones, jam and wine! Thank you for a lovely stay- we'll be back!

This is a tardis of a cottage. Really clean and well decorated and furnished. It is slap bang in the middle of Dartmouth but off the beaten track. Just about everything in Dartmouth is within 5 minutes walk. Fantastic for children. The park is a couple of minutes away and of course crabbing almost on the doorstep. For a small family I thought the house was perfection. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to go again.

Dartmouth itself has two small coves (Castle Cove and Sugary Cove) close to its Castle, which is a 1 mile walk (or short boat ride) from the centre of town. The famous Blue Flag beach of Blackpool Sands is only 15 minute drive away with a super cafe/restaurant, whilst Slapton Sands, offering a 3 mile stretch of pebble beach, is a further 5 minutes away. Bigbury on Sea beach is a sandy beach within an area of outstanding natural beauty and is just over 30 minutes drive from Dartmouth.


Nearest airport is at Exeter (40 miles). Nearest railway station is Totnes (12 miles away), with a bus service to Dartmouth. National rail services also to Paignton with bus service to Kingswear. Whilst the town itself has lots to offer the holidaymaker, a car would be recommended if you wish to explore the surrounding area.

Further Details:

Dartmouth is situated in the unspoilt South Hams, in Devon, and the area is a wonderful destination, offering something for everyone. You can wander around Dartmouth’s quaint, cobbled streets, visiting its galleries and individual shops and cafes, enjoy a boat trip out to sea, or down river to historic Totnes or Dittisham. Take the ferry across the river to Kingswear and catch a steam train ride on the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway. A walk, or boat ride, to Dartmouth Castle affords wonderful views of the town, the river and the coast beyond and the Britannia Royal Naval College perches on the hill providing a majestic backdrop to the historic streets and alleyways within the town itself. You may wish to while away a lazy afternoon watching the activity on the busy waterfront, or try your hand at crabbing off the Embankment. Dartmouth enjoys many great restaurants and pubs, or if you want to eat in, the town has an M&S food and a Co-op store as well as delicatessens and bakeries to tempt you. The town enjoys a cinema/arts centre, museum, gardens, tennis courts, park with children’s play area and a tourist information centre which can provide information on local attractions, places to visit, and events taking place in the town and surrounding area.

On our doorstep is the award winning shingle beach at Blackpool Sands (4 miles away), with the 3 mile stretch of pebble beach at Slapton Sands a further 5 minutes’ drive beyond that. The National Trust properties of “Greenway” (Agatha Christie’s former home) and Coleton Fishacre (an Arts and Crafts style house built for Rupert D’Oyly Carte) are close by. Dittisham, Totnes, Dartmoor and the South Hams and Torbay areas are easily reached for those who want to explore the surrounding area. Woodlands Family Theme Park is on the outskirts of the town, open March to November.
