Interaction with guests
I live with my family in the main house called Barrington House. We are completely separate and private and you can't hear us and we can't hear you! In fact the only time you might get a glimpse of us is if we happen to bump into each other in the driveway. However, we are also nearby should you need any help or advice or suggestions or if you want to simply say HI!

Additional amenities & feature info
The Glasshouse is the newly built addition to Barrington House and takes its fantastic position on the site of an old swimming pool within the grounds of Barrington House. It has been architectually designed and as its name suggest is mainly built from glass. We like to think it looks a bit like a very upmarket boathouse and it certainly has a WOW factor. It has its own private gated entrance, a beautiful secluded garden, two parking spaces and amazing views making it a perfect holiday retreat. It has 2 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a downstairs cloakroom and an enormous open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area all beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished. Attention to detail and thoughtful planning flow from one room to the next and it has a wonderful open, spacious and relaxing feeling.

About the neighborhood
Barrington House nestles on a hillside just 10 minutes walk from the very picturesque Georgian harbour town of Dartmouth. Known as one of the UK's most popular yachting havens, the town boasts a great selection of independent boutiques, bistros, cafes and convenient shops along its pretty cobbled streets. Dartmouth is a wonderful bustling town offering something for everyone: Crab fishing, cinema, pirate park, putting green and the best ice cream flavours for the little ones. Beautiful boutiques, shoe shops, swim shops, home wares shops and galleries for the grown ups Quaint and quirky pubs, award winning restaurants, wonderful delies and the best fish and chips for the whole family. Foodies will not be disappointed, as well as the HQ of Riverfood Organics with its acclaimed kitchen caf...
Getting around
Getting around is easy and interesting in Dartmouth - whether it be by foot, car, bus, taxi, train, steam train or boat. Many people leave their car in the drive and don't use it for the rest of their holiday. However having parking at the house does make it easy should you wish to pop out in the car.
