Dartmouth town centre is a 5 minute walk away where you will find a great selection of pubs restaurants and cafes including Mitch Tonks' Seahorse and Rockfish. Cafe Alfresco is locally renowned for breakfasts and the Anchorstone Cafe on Coronation Park is perfect for lunch in the sun. 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.

"Had a good week at Kessel house. The beds were clean and comfortable, good bathrooms, comfortable sitting rooms with great tv. Had all the kitchen implements and equipment that we needed. Well furnished everywhere. Perhaps the kitchen draining boards need some attention. But apart from that happy with everything. Thank you." - Khalim - September 2021

"The house was really spacious for our family of 4 and we loved the location, just 10 mins walk from Dartmouth" - Lisa - August 2021

"This is a comfortable, stylish and well appointed house for a family holiday. We were a group of six adults and had plenty of space to move around and hang out. Two bathrooms are useful when there's six of you, the bedrooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and we found ourselves spending most of our time in the kitchen/snug as it was so comfortable and had a massive TV for watching the Euros. There is parking for one car as described, but if you are bringing other vehicles, there is very little other parking locally. However, we dropped our things off outside and parked elsewhere. We didn't need to use the second car much as there is plenty to do locally that doesn't require driving. Be aware the house is half way up a long hill out of Dartmouth, so although it only takes 10 mins to get to town it will take you longer to get back! Well worth the hike though as the house is lovely and it kept us fit for the week! All in all we had a great stay and would definitely recommend this house to friends and family." - Julie - 2021

"Lovely house, situated at the top of a hill, walkable but with shopping bags jumped on bus, drop off write outside house. Parking outside was a bit awkward, took two people to help park ok if you have small car. Loved the kitchen / lounge layout, open plan so husband could still chat while cooking . Lovely bedrooms but the lighting in the top bedroom was poor. Bathrooms great. Kitchen plenty of equipment for cooking, but the kettle did leak everywhere, which was a bit dangerous. Couldn’t find thermostat for the radiators to turn them down. (Book said it was in the hall but we couldn’t find it). Good workout as we were up and down the stairs forgetting things" - Ditey - June 2021

"It was a good stay and walkable distance to town. Good space for a family. Downstairs hub with the open kitchen and lounge is a good addition to the holiday let." - Simanti - May 2021

"Our week at Kessel house was a very comfortable one. V. Nicely appointed, and well thought out, it was beautifully clean with comfy beds. Well located about a 10 min walk down to the lovely harbour - which means uphill on way back but was easily manageable! Nice size garden, could do with a little tlc but was lovely and sunny to sit in, and we wouldn’t hesitate to go back." Julie - September 2020

Excellent location, short wander down the hill into town and all it has to offer (lovely local shops and food, crabbing, castle, boat rides - the list is endless!), short drives to nearby Blackpool Sands and other beautiful spots. The house itself was far more spacious than it looked in the pictures! We had plenty of space, the kids felt very much at home, the garden was great for them to have a run about it in whilst we were settling in/packing up (we were otherwise out for most of the days). If you're not used the to the roads, it might feel a little tight, but everyone is very patient with each others manoeuvres! Useful things- huge Sainsbury's/Lidl few minutes drive away. Playground just down the hill. Very clear communication on what was required at checkout to allow for enough extra cleaning time in light of Covid" Sabrina - September 2020

A spacious, comfortable, well equipped home in a great location. We had the parking spot measured before coming but the size is not the issue but the turn to get in to it which meant we bumped our car twice - made it an expensive break which we can’t afford to replicate!" Rebecca - September 2020

"Lovely house, some interesting furniture and pictures. Very comfortable and clean. Good location" Beverly - August 2020
