“Perfect location with great views”

This is a fantastic house. The layout is great and every room gives you great views down into Dartmouth and across to Kingswear. We sat out at different times of the day and there was always something to watch. At night when everything is lit up you feel like you are somewhere special. The house is very clean and very well equipped. The walk back from town is energetic but ideal to get you going first thing in the morning or set you up for dinner in the evening. So much to do in Dartmouth. Something for everyone and only ten minutes walk away. Really nice at the end of the day for a bit of crabbing and then a pint!
An indication of how good it was is that no one wanted to come home! That was with an age range from 13 - 76.

“Relaxing and Spacious”

Our visit to Dartmouth was for the occasion of my sons passing out ceremony from the Naval College. Compasss Rose proved to be an absolute stroke of genius as there was quite a few of us wanting to celebrate the occasion, by renting the whole house we were able to spend quality time with everyone in a relaxed and beautiful setting. The house offered plenty of living and bedroom space for us all with gorgeous views over looking Dartmouth. Parking is a little tight ( but that can be said of every where in Dartmouth). As you enter the house on the top floor, there are two double bedrooms both with en-suites and balconies. The stairs down take you to the living area with a large lounge, dining area and kitchen and once again a large balcony with plenty of seating. The kitchens is well equipped. The stairs down lead to three further bedrooms ( two double, one single), one with an ensuite and there is a family bathroom. The bedrooms on the lower floor open out into the garden with a lovely covered seating area and barbecue area.

The owners were extremely helpful, giving us really useful advise on our route and arrival at Compass Rose. They answered any queries extremely promptly. The bottle of prosecco of arrival was a delightful touch given our celebratory reason for staying.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to rent, indeed we are considering a trip down to Dartmouth in the future and would possibly look to book here again.

“Big family get together”
Reviewed 13 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We had the most amazing time from the moment we stepped in to house. The love and care that has been put into the house is everywhere, where lots of special touches have been added to make a truly outstanding experience.

The views are to die for on every terrace. Most bedrooms have an ensuite and the bedrooms are all spacious and comfortable. Parking is bit tight but we did manage to get two cars on the drive.

The kitchen is fantastic with everything you could ever need. We had many happy hours at the large dining table, eating, drinking and playing games.

We were fortunate to have wonderful weather and really enjoyed our time in Dartmouth. We would love to go back to this house again and highly recommend a stay at the Compass Rose.

“Great home away from home”
Reviewed 31 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We were greeted by Ann and Bren and welcomed to their home with prosecco, wine, fresh scones, clotted cream and strawberry preserves. The home is bright and airy with beautiful views of the Dart and countryside. Everything you need is in the house and the layout of bedrooms on the top and bottom floors with living space in the middle is perfect! The location is a short walk downhill to town where you will find a quaint village of shops and restaurants. The walk back is a little harder up the steep hill but helps to wear off the food and drinks consumed! Ann was quick to respond to any and all questions we had and had some great suggestions of things to do. There were 8 of us and everyone agreed that this home was a great choice! Thank you Ann and Bren for sharing your wonderful home!

Hi Joan We're delighted you has such a great time and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and your wonderful 'crowd'. We sincerely hope the weekend at Burgh Island went well despite the weather not being quite as terrific as in Dartmouth. All the best Ann and Bren
