Dogs welcome, parking onsite.

From the kitchen a few steps lead down into the rear patio garden which is an enclosed private area which offers a good space for enjoying al fresco meals; with an outdoor table, chairs and barbeque. Steps lead down from the patio to the garage where you will find the utility room and additional toilet.

Hill Top View does accept dogs however the garden space isn’t particularly dog friendly, Strete playing fields are a short walk from the property and the Strete Gate end of Slapton Sands are great spots for exercising dogs


There is parking on the driveway and plenty of on road parking.


The village shop and pub are a 5 minute walk from Hill Top View. The village pub the Kings Arms has recently reopened and offers great food with views out to sea. There are additional pubs and restaurants in the nearby villages of Torcross, Stoke Fleming and Slapton. The beaches Blackpool Sands and Slapton Sands are 2 minutes away in the car.


In the peak season, May, June, July and August we need to keep to Friday 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 Friday 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.

"One or two problems encountered but reported them and they were addressed. Nice place would love a big double garage like this one for a workshop!!" - Greystone - September 2021

"Lovely bungalow with fantastic sea views. Great location to drive to Dartmouth. Very quiet location. Only has 6 plates, bowls, so needed to put dish washer on every day. Comfortable, bright lounge area. Comfortable beds." - Sally - August 2021

"It was clean light and airy. You can see the sea whilst being in bed and have the doors open . We had 4 adults and 2 tots. Everything was supplied. You are between Dartmouth and Kingsbridge, so excellent position. We loved it!" - Andrew - July 2021

"What an amazing bungalow. Location is spot on perfect, there is a little dog park we realised towards the end of the stay which is just round the corner. Pub, beach and plenty of coastal walks all on your doorstep. The bungalow itself is ideal for a little get away. 3 decent sized bedrooms and a massive bathroom. Kitchen and lounge are good sized too. With a sea view from the dining room. We wouldn’t hesitate to book this place again and really enjoyed the stay. Christines communication was great and we found her very helpful throughout the stay." - Jake - June 2021

"We know the area well and needed a house which could accommodate 5 plus dog and two cars and be within easy reach of sea. Hill Top provided all that and more." David - August 2020

"Hill Top View is a very spacious bungalow in a quiet location, yet only a few minutes walk from the village centre and coast path. It is well equipped and comfortable and one of the best holiday rentals we have stayed in. We especially enjoyed the sea views!" Elaine - 18th July 2020

Good location, bungalow was spacious and airy. Only two things let it down and that was the heating was a bit temperamental- the control unit in the house didn’t work, we were unable to change the on off times so it was warm when we were out and cold first thing in the morning. But Dart Valley Cottages responded quickly when we reported no heat or hot water. Also back door wouldn’t open as the lock was seized. But other than that in a cold stormy week it was a nice place to stay." Andrew - February 2020

“Good property, situated in a great location. My family stayed in Hill Top View, in the month of August 2019. The property is a good size for our family of five. The property was clean on arrival and Dart Valley left us to our holiday with a welcome E-mail if we required any assistance. The Property: Overall very satisfied and would definitely return. Very spacious, a little dated but this didn’t bother us one bit, we live in quite a modern home. The property consists of oak flooring throughout the living, dining and hall. It’s a pity no felt pads have been used on the furniture as the flooring was quite scratched, but again it didn’t affect our stay. The garden is small but does get the sun into late afternoon, we were on the beach most days though so didn’t get to use the garden. The Area: The property is very close to several beaches, a restaurant and a small Post Office/shop. Dartmouth is less than 15 minutes drive, also Woodlands theme park is close by. Plenty to do, we can recommend the ‘Round Robin’ steam train/bus ride/river cruise, visiting the beaches, crabbing at Dartmouth, and the Woodlands Theme Park was pleasantly surprising. Highly Recommended.” Joe – 22-29 August 2019

“Light, airy and spacious bungalow. The patio doors and balconies off the lounge and main bedroom were a lovely bonus. Very well placed for Slapton Sands, Blackpool Sands, we also visited Salcombe and Dartmouth. There is a lovely walk through the village and via footpaths down to Slapton Sands. The village shop is very useful. We all had the best sleeps in very comfortable beds in a peaceful location. Great communication with Christine and easy to access via keybox.”Cathy – 27-31 July 2019

“Great Place to stay! We stayed at Hill Top View for a long period and where very happy there. This is a very good location for anyone wishing to visit the South Hams. We were well looked after by both the owner and Dart Valley Cottages” Tim – 22 March -19 April 2019
