“Wonderful”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Looking through other reviews, words and phrases such as, "absolutely wonderful" "excellent location and what views" "stunning" are used to describe what is without doubt the best holiday apartment in Dartmouth.
We initially booked the property for the two of us, but when the family realised where we were staying they came and joined us for the weekend as they had stayed in the Penthouse before Sarah had upgraded it to the currently very lovely place it is today. Well done Sarah you have set a standard that will be very difficult to match. Needless to say we will definitely be returning.

“WOW..WOW..& WOW AGAIN.”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

What an amazing place to stay, What amazing views from our "Penthouse" we were mesmerised with a full view of Dartmouth, the Yachts, the private cruisers coming & going out to sea. The penthouse is contempory, all mod. cons. a home from home & more. Very comfortable, 3 Bedrooms/3 shower rooms/ en-suite, 1 with a huge egg shaped bath. Having a walk in shower room at home this was ideal for my requirements. The grounds are stunning, everything is stunning, even the evening view across the sea, where the coloured lights from "Kingswear" across the water cast their shadows in reflection on the sea. Watch as Yachts make their way somewhere far off with their twinkling lights in the dark as they leave the mouth of the sea. Go to bed & wake up for breakfast, unfold the bi-fold doors & the glass balcony beckons you to enjoy the sea, the boats, the country-side to the right with cows feeding in the fields. i can wax lyrical all day. Maybe i should've kept "Barrington House" a secret kept for myself. They also have a "Glasshouse" for guests. see their website for more.

“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed June 10, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The Penthouse is a fantastic modern property, in an excellent location with stunning views across the mouth of the River Dart.

You can tell that a lot of time and effort has gone into the design and décor with no expense spared.

There were a number of nice touches on arrival such as a box of chocolates and a bottle of wine plus items that we had brought ourselves such as fresh milk, tea, coffee, washing up liquid and dish washer tablets.

The internet connection was fast and the 2 parking spaces took the stress away of having to find somewhere to park in Dartmouth.

I travel a lot on business and with my family and have stayed in some really nice places but none of them compare to the Penthouse.

“Simply stunning!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

As a group of six busy, hardworking girls we needed a place to switch off and relax for a long weekend and our stay at the The Penthouse was just the tonic. The decked, glass fronted balcony is the perfect centrepiece where you can enjoy a stunning panoramic view of Dartmouth whilst relaxing in style on either the giant Quba bean bags or comfy recliners. The apartment is finished to an extremely high standard with much care and attention to the interior decor, giving it a calm, tranquil but stylishly contemporary feel.

The bedrooms are large and spacious, with lovely bedding and the bathrooms (two ensuite/one main) again are finished to a very high standard.

The Penthouse oozes style and is quite simply a stunning place to stay.

“Outstanding.”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We had a very enjoyable Easter week at the Penthouse. The apartment is in a beautiful location on a hill overlooking Dartmouth and only a short pleasant walk away from the numerous shops and restaurants. The apartment has been finished to an extremely high standard with care and attention given to the finer details. Our children especially liked the treehouse in the garden which they had use of a couple of times. Highly recommended.

“Simply stunning”
Reviewed January 15, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We've just returned from a wonderful Christmas week at the Penthouse with our family. The whole house has been recently renovated and the Penthouse is beautifully finished with high quality fixtures and furnishings.

The highlight is the spacious living area with a fantastically equipped kitchen and entertaining area with huge glass doors leading out to a balcony with an amazing view over Dartmouth and Kingswear that you would never tire of. All three bedrooms are of a good size and having three bathrooms is a real bonus. Everything you could possibly want is available in the apartment and Sarah kindly provided lots of baby equipment saving us having to bring our own.

Having pored over many websites in search of the perfect place in Dartmouth, I'd say that Barrington House is the best value and best equipped rental out there. I would happily recommend it and look forward to returning back there one day.

The hardest choice is deciding between the Penthouse and the Glasshouse, both are stunning. Sarah has done a fantastic job and has raised the bar for rentals in Dartmouth, I have no doubt that Barrington House will be extremely popular in 2013 once word gets out.
