The Bolthole - Cosy & Atmospheric with River Views from the Garden Terrace

Bedrooms 1
Space 215 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

The Bolthole is a detached property nestled into the valley that is Kingswear just above the river dart and Waterhead Creek with Dartmouth in view across the river. Newly developed using carefully selected reclaimed materials mixed with some modern comforts to complement. As its located on the slope above our main house it has a lovely private garden with its own deck overlooking the River Dart to the hills in the distance and Waterhead Creek just below. The idea & inspiration was to created a hidden space to escape to and the perfect base to explore South Devon & Cornwall from. The property is a studio setup with a King-size Bed setup that can be converted to a day bed if required. Its split level with a coastal feel by way of White Washed T&G timber and a hardwood waxed wooden floor reclaimed from marina boards having been weathered for 20 years. There is an area to cook at a modern well equipped kitchen and eat at a vintage table & chairs. Lots of light floods in and the terrace outside gets the afternoon and evening sun with double french doors that open to the oak steps up to the deck. welcome you to experience the property and look forward to hearing about your south west adventures. please view the recent images which hopefully gives an initial feel of whats on offer.

About Matthew

Hi, my wife and bought the property last year as we've lived in Dartmouth for some time but wanted to expirience a better view and the afternoon & evening sun! The bolthole is separate to the main house has just been developed specifically for people to enjoy where we live. We're more than happy to assist with any local knowledge & tips but rest assured if you don't want any contact your stay will be very private and while you're here, it's your home from home.

Matthew purchased this apartment in 2016
