I booked the cottage this year with my friends to celebrate New Years (I had also stayed here with my family two weeks previously and decided it would be the perfect New Years location). The location is spectacular on the Estuary of the Dart, the view on opening the curtains every morning changes with the tide and is always breathtaking.
The building itself is full of character, the living room is comfortable and with the fire going is warm and very cosy. The kitchen is well equipped with all the facilities we needed with a good cooker, washing machine and dishwasher.
A 2 minute walk along the beach is a lovely pub, with a great atmosphere, good food and we found out - now offering takeaways and only a 10 minute drive from supermarkets in Dartmouth.
Will hope to be wanting to book the cottage up for many years to come.
This is the most beautiful holiday cottage in a idyllic location right on the estuary. From the outside this cottage is picture postcard perfect and an ideal location for a summer holiday.
We loved driving up the beach!
I really struggled with the inside of the cottage and we actually cut our holiday short because we were struggling so much. It was extremely dark and dingy and we could not make it brighter. The lamps were very low wattage and although this is atmospheric you do need to be able to see! It was very cold upon arrival and there were only 4 logs left. You definitely need to take logs during the winter.
I think if there were a family of 8 you would really struggle for hot water - we had no hot water for the first day and it was far from relaxing.
This is the most expensive holiday cottage we have stayed in for this time of year and it was not worth the extra money.
The kitchen and bathrooms were a disappointment - the kitchen cupboards were damp and musty and the downstairs smelt of damp dogs - we sorted this with scented candles.
The bedrooms were comfortable and the linen clean.
