A truly great find! Close to the centre of Dartmouth in a very peaceful street, this cottage has been beautifully renovated to create a fabulous open-plan living area on the ground floor with three sumptuous double bedrooms on the upper floors. There is even a walled garden at the back to enjoy alfresco dining. The whole house has been furnished and equipped with maximum comfort in mind. A parking permit is supplied for the nearby car park, one small dog welcome.
The front door opens from Clarence Hill into the open-plan living room. To the front of the cottage is the lounge furnished with sofa and armchairs, large TV, and side tables. The kitchen is very well-equipped for a self-catering holiday and has cream units with granite tops, housing the dishwasher, fridge and freezer, electric oven and hob, washer/dryer, Nespresso machine (please bring pods). The dining area has a high glass ceiling flooding the room with light, wooden dining table and upholstered chairs for 6. Off the dining room is a small courtyard with a cupboard housing extra fridge and freezer space.
Stairs lead up to the first floor with the first of the bedrooms, this one has an upholstered kingsize bed, plenty of storage and large TV. Also, on this floor is the large family bathroom with corner bath, separate shower, basin and toilet.
On the second floor there are two bedrooms both with upholstered double beds and plenty of storage. One of with an en suite shower, toilet and basin and television.
On the half landing between the first and second floors is the door leading the walled terrace garden, a brilliant sun trap with a rattan dining table and chairs and Outback gas barbecue. The perfect spot for a glass of fizz on a summers evening. Please note the patio is not best suited for exercising dogs, Coronation Park is a 2-minute walk away at the end of Clarence Street where dogs can be exercised.
The car park pass provided is valid for Mayors Avenue car park a 2-minute walk away. It is also valid across the South Hams for use in long stay council run car parks, so as well as Dartmouth you can park for free at Slapton, Totnes, Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Bigbury, Ivybridge and Modbury (details are on the pass). Please note that at significantly busy times of the year such as Regatta and the height of summer the pass does not guarantee a space, on the rare occasion the car park is full the permit is valid for the park and ride at the top of town.
A short walk down will take you to the heart of Dartmouth. Here you will find a great selection of shops, restaurants, pubs, cafés and galleries. From the embankment you will find ferries to Kingswear or a longer walk will take you to the South West Coast Path which runs out the mouth of the river past Dartmouth Castle. Blackpool Sands is the closest beach, a 5-minute drive away in the village of Stoke Fleming.
In the peak season, May, June, July and August we need to keep to Saturday changeovers and a minimum stay of 7 nights. However, please do contact us with any requests you may have and we will accommodate if possible.
Out of peak season we don't need to keep to a Saturday changeover.

“We’ve had a wonderful week exploring Dartmouth and staying at your beautiful home. It was such a lovely place to return to each day and it went above and beyond all our initial expectations meeting every desired comfort and need. Celebrating our grannies 90th birthday could not have gone as well without 10 Clarence Hill and she was delighted with everything generously provided and offered. We hope to one day return. Many thanks. It felt so homely and we had everything we needed and more. Everything had been thought of. I would highly recommend staying here and it was amazing value for money!”

“This property superseded our expectations and we would highly recommend. We booked our week in south Devon very late in the season and did not expect to find such fabulous accommodation in the most convenient of locations. Nestled at the foot of Clarence Hill (so no steep climb for my fit but octogenarian parents) it is a 1 to 2 minute stroll to Foss Street and its fashionable boutiques and galleries and then a left turn onto Duke Street and its timber framed buildings which lead you out to the harbour and spectacular river views. The allocated parking at Mayors Avenue again is only a 2 minute walk and on the way back you can call for provisions at the opportunely placed M & S simply food and or a cheeky beverage at the welcoming George and Dragon Public House. We took our 2 dogs and found a community orchard just a few minutes walk away where the dogs could exercise off the lead. The house is very stylish without compromising on substance. Top quality bed linens, fixtures and fittings. In terms of amenities Ikea doesn’t stock more. The host very generously provides an overwhelming array of consumables. The open plan living space is generous and airy and has clearly defined areas for cooking, eating and relaxing. The bedrooms are spacious and luxurious. The outdoor terrace is private and secure so no worries about the dogs absconding. It was our first visit to Devon but will definitely not be our last. We sailed on the Dart, took a hike out to the castle and St. Petrox’s. Dartmouth offers amazing scenery which we never tired of. We visited stylish Salcombe and the many villages along the Dart with highlights being Dittsham and Stoke Gabriel and Totnes. We took steam trains and open top buses to the English Riveria. Spectacular coastal drives and walks. We enjoyed our week in South Devon a county with an abundance of natural beauty, boats, steam trains and paddlers and jam on top.”

“An absolutely amazing week in this lovely home – we don’t want to leave!! The little ‘extras’ made it a real home from home and having the terrace for outdoor drinks/BBQ’s was superb! The taste in decor/furniture was just our taste and the downstairs open plan worked perfectly for us. We will definitely be re-booking for next year!"

“A beautiful house located in a prime location. There were many little touches at the property to make us feel like we were at home, and Christine gave us many tips on where to go to make us feel at ease. Everything in the house was pristine and of outstanding quality.”
