Guests Comments

"What a gorgeous cottage. So near the shops, quayside, coffee shops and delightful Dartmouth. So much to do here and no need to take the car anywhere. Maybe our best holiday to date. So peaceful and quaint."

"We have had a wonderful week here in the cottage! Thank you. This is a lovely house in a perfect location-even with the early dawn chorus of gulls. Loved the top room looking across the to the harbor. This is our first stay in Dartmouth and we will definitely be visiting again next year. Thanks again!!"
