16 Clarence Hill is a unique holiday property in Dartmouth. From the outside you can see why it gets its name 'The skinny house', Inside there is a stylish mix of old and new with exposed beans and stonework as well as modern wood and glass. 16 Clarence Hill benefits from far reaching views over the town and river. Situated on a quiet street just a few minutes walk from the centre of town and river Dart, the house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms making this an ideal property for two couples to share. There is a parking space in front of the property as well as a place to sit outside. Fresh flowers and a bottle of fizz in the fridge will welcome you on your arrival. Dogs welcome.


Accommodation:
The front door opens into a hall with limestone flooring and plenty of storage for coats etc. One step up into the contemporary dining area which is a lovely mix of old and new with exposed brick work on one wall, wood flooring, extendable dining table and chairs to seat 6 to 8, small seating area with TV. Double doors into the galley kitchen with high gloss grey modern units, granite tops, integrated Miele appliances – dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, gas hob with electric oven, microwave.

Outside:
At the rear of the property there is a small courtyard that offers light and ventilation for the kitchen. Immediately to the front of the property there is a south facing sitting area with table and chairs. Though this property is pet friendly, dogs will need to be exercised off site (Coronation Park is a 5 minute walk from the property).

Parking:
Opposite the front door there is a private parking space suitable for a medium/ large SUV. Additional unrestricted on street parking can be found back up the hill on Mount Boone


A Bit of History:
16 Clarence Hill was originally an entrance and annexe to Mount Galpine House, the home of the Holdsworths – a prominent Dartmouth family. The facade is dated 1629 with exquisite carvings created in an era steeped in the towns Naval and shipbuilding history. The house was completely renovated to a standard of high quality and is now a very well appointed and equipped holiday home.


Nearby:
The shops and restaurants are a 2 minute walk away. At Coronation Park you will find the Anchorstone Cafe. On the riverfront you will find Mitch Tonks 'The Rockfish' and 'The Seahorse'. Also on the river front you will find transport links via the ferries and steam train.

Availability:
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 me 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.

 

"Couldn't fault the house. A pleasant surprise to have the wine, cake, biscuits and flowers on our arrival.
We were a bit perplexed about the date on the frontage of 1629 which was obviously not the date the house was built. However we found out from a museum leaflet that the narrow house was built after WW2 and used the frontage of a house in Foss Street which had suffered bomb damage in 1943 and was being demolished. The facade was saved and used on number 16 and fitted in nicely in the gap between 2 larger and earlier houses. Clever eh!
The sitting out area is in the front of the house next to the road and as the weather was good all week we sat out there most days and chatted to passersby." Gerry - September 2020


"Fab location. Note the road is very narrow and the parking space is a little tricky to park in but very handy as opposite the house." Emma - September 2020


"
We had a wonderful stay at this fabulous house with its amazing views which got better and better the higher you climbed. The house was spotlessly clean on arrival and we felt totally Covid safe. Excellent location for exploring Dartmouth and all that it has to offer, with just a short 5 minute walk in to the centre. Having the parking space right outside was a real bonus, especially as Dartmouth was extremely busy due to the extra 'stay-cation' visitors, I would recommend only using it for small/medium size cars." Jill - August 2020


"The house is beautiful, quirky and very comfortable. The views from lounge and bedroom outstanding - I could while away hours just relaxing in the window seat! Very central but quiet - a fantastic base from which to explore Dartmouth and this stunning part of the world. Thank you, we had a wonderful time." Gill - July 2020


"Due to COVID19 we only stayed three days out of our weeks stay but we greatly enjoyed the brief time at 16 Clarence Hill. It is a lovely house with great views, suited our needs perfectly and great that we could take Meg Dog too. Thank you for the little treats on arrival, much appreciated after our journey down. We hope to resume our stay when we are out of this terrible situation and enjoy this lovely home and Dartmouth again." Elaine - March 2020



“Fantastic location, car space essential, so easy to walk down to town. Great place to base yourself for some fantastic walks along the coast or inland down the estuary. If you want a bathroom on the same floor as the bedroom then this is not for you !!! ..Although it was a lovely break…. thank you.” A – 21 October 2019

“What a fabulous house. My sister and I have been holidaying in Dartmouth for many years now. We’ve stayed in many different properties… all lovely.. BUT THIS IS THE BEST! AND WE WILL BE BACK!! NEXT YEAR!!! Great artwork selection – certainly our taste to a tee! Everything you need. Beautiful flowers on arrival. Essential milk for a cup of tea on arrival …. or if you felt like something stronger, a glass of bubbly! Thank you. Fantastic views over the harbour to Kingswear and out to sea. Wonderful to able to park the car right outside your holiday home … a rarity in Dartmouth. Blessed with beautiful weather all week. We’ve had the most magical holiday.Thank you so much” Sally-Anne and Sylv – 6-13 July 2019

“Skinny house was huge experience. House was very narrow and street was even narrower! That’s what made it so cool! We enjoyed how they made use of every space in such a smart and stylish way. The view was breathtaking from the lounge. The breakfast items and champagne were the icing on the cake. The town was lovely and everything was in walking distance. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a unique travel experience.” Bethany – 1-8 June 2019

“What a Gem of a little house. Our 3rd consecutive stay and once again we were not disappointed by the accommodation and beauty of Dartmouth. The house is a little “Gem” with a great location and views out over the Dart river. For sure will not be our last stay and will be heading back in 2020.” Ian – 25 May – 1 June 2019

“Unique property in a great location. The interior design of the property is very attractive using the highest quality materials. The views over the town and out too the castle, first class. All services are practical and work well. The parking space was a real bonus, we did not find the approach too or manoeuvring into the space overly taxing. Minutes walk into the town. There is a climb up to the property from the town and lots of stairs internally, but worth the climb if you can manage them.” Peter – 16-25 May 2019

“Narrow yet spacious! Our first stay at 16 Clarence Hill. Such a gem! Looks small from the outside as so narrow but huge instead. Lots of steps (51 to the very top!) but worth it for the beautiful views. We simply sat and watched the world go by, the boats coming and going, perfect. Greeted with flowers and champagne and some basic food staples was great. The bedrooms were spacious, high end bedding, very comfortable. House comes with a parking space which is rare in Dartmouth so an added bonus” Jennifer – 27 April – 4 May 2019

“Being able to see the water, town and park your car is very unusual in Dartmouth Old Town. Add to that the unique exterior and unusual high-end Scandi-style interior, this is a special place to stay. You will get fit climbing the stairs….” Simon – 23-26 February 2019

“Our second stay – loved it just the same. Can’t believe weather – sat on Blackpool sands – blue skies and sunshine. Bought the family this time – will return again soon. Thank you for the lovely memories” Sue, Nigel, Isey and Jamie – 10-14 January 2019

“Lovely stay over New Year. We have stayed in this house 3 times now. It is in a good location with a wonderful view over Dartmouth and the estuary.
