We booked Dartwood last minute! On the 23 March we should’ve flown too South Africa to see familiy after not being back for 3 years! 2 days before our flight my hubby had an accident at work and needed immediate surgery on his arm which happened the week before Easter. Not only did Dartwood give us a break but also room to get our thoughts together for the adjustment to every day life. What a beautiful place - very clean and welcoming! The views were soup for the soul even my husband waking me up at 5.30 am to witness the sun rising. Thankyou for an amazing stay and for helping us get back on our feet! We hope to be back later this year fully recovered
As a long time visitor to Dartmouth, our family knows what to expect when booking a holiday here. A historic town with unending charm, Dartmouth has its roots firmly anchored on the banks of the beautiful River Dart, offering a great place to visit whatever the time of year.
Whenever we book our holiday rental there is one stipulation - the property must have a view.
Dartwood, a two bedroomed apartment located within a few minutes walk of the town, does not disappoint. It has views to die for from its second floor vantage point.
You can sit in the lounge/diner and stare out all day, watching the boats go past down river towards Totnes one way and out to the river's mouth and a glimpse of the sea to the other.
The property is well furnished in contemporary style with leather settee and glass dining table and even the galley style kitchen has views through its open hatch to the watery vista beyond.
There are few criticisms however one would be that there was no internet or wifi when we stayed. Many holiday homes do offer this feature and it would be a bonus. The kitchen has a dishwasher and also a washing machine. A tumble dry facility in the washing machine would have been helpful during the rainy time we were there.
There are two bedrooms, one a twin, which is a bit cramped, the other a double, which is also a little small but adequate. There is also a modest bathroom.
There are steps up to the entrance of the apartment so this could be a problem for the less mobile and no parking space was offered for the car so be prepared to hunt for a place to leave it, especially in high season.
Otherwise, Dartwood was immaculately presented, spotlessly clean and ideal if you are looking for a place to stay where you are always connected to the water, whatever the weather.
