The composite deck out the front is a lovely spot for a coffee on a summer morning and the log burner is perfect for a cosy winters evening in. Located in a very central spot sitting just behind the Market Square you’re seconds from the towns’ shops, bars and restaurants yet feel far enough away from the hustle and bustle due to the properties elevated position. A parking permit is supplied for the nearby car park.

A flight of 25 old stone steps from the road takes you up to the private enclosed front deck. The front door opens straight into the cosy sitting room with wood burning stove, comfortable sofas and armchair, Smart TV with DVD and BT box.
Stairs up to the first floor where you will find the brand-new light and airy kitchen/ dining room complete with integrated appliances including oven and hobs, fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. The dining area has an extending dining table that comfortably sits 6.

Stairs from the dining area lead up to the second floor where you will find the further two bedrooms and shower room – the master bedroom has king size bed, built in hanging space and a chest of drawers, views are available from here over towards the town and market. The second bedroom is a twin room with hanging space and storage. There is an additional shower room on this floor containing a shower, toilet and wash basin.
Central heating and woodburner (logs can be purchased locally).
At the front of the property is the private enclosed deck made with grey composite material giving a fresh contrasting finish to the traditional mid terrace building. treated garden furniture including table and chairs, bench and potted plants, the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee or an evening glass of fizz.
It is possible to stop at the bottom of the steps to unload and a parking pass is provided for Mayors Avenue Car Park a 3 minutes’ walk away.
Please note the flight of stairs up to the property are quite steep and a little uneven.

The car park pass provided is valid for Mayors Avenue car park a 2-minute walk away. 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.

The shops and restaurants are a 2 minute walk away. At Coronation Park you will find the Anchorstone Cafe that is great for alfresco dining. 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.
In the peak season, May, June, July and August we need to keep to Friday changeover 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.

Please get in touch if you need any advice or tips on places to visit, walks (we're right on the South West Coast path), pubs & restaurants etc.
Gull’s Rest is in a perfect location in the heart of Dartmouth, which we found to be very convenient. The cottage was very homely and clean with comfortable beds, lovely linen and towels. It provided everything we needed as a family with a well equipped kitchen and we would certainly recommend it to others. We had excellent communication with Dart Valley Cottages and hope to return again in the future."- Pipshar - August 2021

"We had a lovely stay at Christine's place. It's a fabulously placed house and is pretty much in the town centre but also lovely and quiet. The house is as pictured and described and has everything you need for a short break or a longer stay. The car parking is also very easy and we parked without any problem whilst we were there for the week. It's a real bonus to have the parking pass as you can park for free in most places nearby that you might want to visit." - Hollie - July 2021

"Husband and I enjoyed a comfortable stay at Gulls Rest with our two teenagers. The property was immaculately presented with all the equipment needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The beds were perfect for us to have a decent nights sleep. The front terrace was another great space for us to use in the evening. Being so close to the centre of Dartmouth was fantastic and really close to the market, pubs, cafes and shops it just took the pressure off having to go out in the car. We’ll definitely be booking to stay again." - Marie -Claire - July 2021

"Great well equipped house very central to Dartmouth with easy access to all local amenities. Parking is made easy with the car park pass provided. Would be more than happy to stay again." - Ajb - June 2021

"Beautiful cottage in a fantastic location! We were worried that it may be a little noisy as it was so close to town, literally a few steps, but it was beautifully quiet. The terrace had the sun on it all day. As it was April it was chilly in the evenings and we made use of the gorgeous log burner. The cottage was excellent and the beds extremely comfortable. Very tastefully decorated, great bathrooms and kitchen and everything you could wish for. We couldn’t fault it!" - Laura - April 2021

"A lovely spacious house, centrally located in the centre of town but very quiet. It is furnished to a very high standard and the kitchen is well equipped too. A lovely private patio at the front of the property is a real bonus. There are a number of steps up the front door which are steep which may not be suitable for some but well worth it for the peace and tranquillity." Bernard - September 2020

"Very nice place excellent location within short walking distance of the Harbour and Town The house was lovely with all the facilities we needed , clean and comfortable.We would stay there again without hesitation." Steve - September 2020

Lovely and very well located property within a 5 minute walk of the main shops, restaurants and harbour front at Dartmouth. The property was modern, welcoming and spotlessly clean. Communication surrounding protocols for covid-19 were clear and our stay felt very safe. Christine was a good host and considering the circumstances did her best to make our stay as comfortable and accommodate requests where possible" Hayley - September 2020

"Gulls Rest had everything we needed for our family stay . Perfectly clean. Great central location. Parking was difficult, but it was Bank Holiday weekend. We will definitely return to Gulls Rest." Alison - August 2020

"This is a great house in an excellent location. Spacious, well equipped and super clean. Very comfortable beds, and we especially appreciated the White Company bedding and towels" Joanne - August 2020

We booked with Dart Valley Cottages again because the quality of the accommodation last year was excellent, but we wanted to be in a more central location in the town, rather than on the hill, and Gulls Rest did not disappoint in any way. The brand new kitchen was light, spacious and very well equipped, the bathrooms were tastefully decorated and the beds were very comfortable. Our two teenage girls thought the wifi was excellent and there was plenty of space for everyone to relax and enjoy our stay there. We were able to unload at the bottom of the steps leading up to the property, and the elevated deck above North Ford Road (only a path really with no vehicular traffic) provided a very private outdoor dining and relaxing space. The property was just a 3 minutes walk to the Quay which was great. The only slight surprise was being able to clearly hear some noise from the adjacent property occasionally, especially on the 2nd floor, but this was not a major problem for us." Matt - July 2020

Clean comfortable house in a convenient location. The wood burner is lovely and the bedrooms are really comfortable. It’s a very new let and I think because of this there are a few things lacking in terms of equipment and furnishings. For example there needs to be more plates and cutlery so that you don’t keep running out. Some champagne glasses would be nice. Waste paper baskets in the bedrooms and living room are needed and the bathrooms are missing toilet brushes! This didn’t detract from our stay and we’d definitely book again. Thank you!" Amy - February 2020

We had a super stay at Gulls Rest, the cottage is centrally located for the town and the parking was easy and a short walk away. The cottage had a well equipped kitchen, a comfortable bed and a great log burner. Dartmouth is a great place for exploring the coast path and all the ferries across the estuary were handy for getting around without using the car.The cottage has about 25 uneven steps to climb from the street to the front door so may not be suitable for everyone but was no problem for us."
