“Fantastic, perfect - could not have asked for more”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The Penthouse is incredible - breathtaking views, gorgeous apartment and so well equipped. We travelled with 4 adults, 2 3yos and 2 6m olds and the toys and dressing up box were an instant hit - we didn't see the toddlers for the first couple of hours! The apartment has all you need for both grown ups (wine fridge!) and children (travel cots, monitors, plastic crockery) and the spectacular views are an amazing bonus. Sarah has decorated the Penthouse beautifully and it is a wonderful place to visit. The added extras like the Treehouse visit and book of child friendly recommendations were also very much appreciated.

I have just returned from a break in the penthouse. The whole experience was fantastic. The penthouse has a lovely feel. It was spotless and the views are quite breathtaking.

“Stunning penthouse apartment - perfection!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Just returned from a girlie weekend in the Penthouse. Perfect weather was the cherry on top of the cake!
Sarah has made the penthouse the perfect place to stay in Dartmouth. If your looking for a bit of luxury then look no further!
The views from the balcony are amazing and no photo can justify it. A great place to chill out in style with all the mod cons, can't recomend highly enough. Great for families, couples or a group of friends.
Definitely a place you'll want to return to time and time again.
This was my second visit will definately be back for a third!

“Lovely contemporary penthouse”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

The Penthouse was the perfect place to stay for our new year break. There was plenty of space for the four of us with everything we could possibly need and more which was a huge bonus as the weather was not kind to us! Even our 'kids' of 18 and 19 were very impressed and are keen to return at some time. The view is amazing and Dartmouth is lovely. Would definitely recommend.

“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.
