Great house in an excellent location a few minutes walk from the centre of Dartmouth and with the added bonus of parking. A very well equipped kitchen which was great as eating out here is expensive. The only thing that was missing was a visitor comments book (there might have been one there but we never found it) which we always look through for extra ideas of what to do. where to go and places to eat.Mrs Gaynor Davies - 13th August 2018
Delightful, homely property,
No17 is a lovely homely place with everything you need supplied, a well stocked kitchen and comfy bedrooms. There is a short walk to the town and river, only downside to the property are the steep steps back and front, the front steps are easier to use as the handrail at the rear does not start until you are about 6 steps down, could do with one being added. The upside is that you have two parking spaces at the rear, which is great and convenient. The view from the living room is lovely and you can watch the world go by from the chaise in the window, bliss.Jackie and family from Bournemouth - 1st August 2015
A very conveniently-placed and well-appointed house in a lovely town.
All the arrangements worked well. We loved the views and the good position. The parking was unusually good for Dartmouth. One has to be aware of all the steps inside and outside, but three generations of us had a really good fortnight at this well-appointed, spacious house.Stuart from E. Essex - 2nd August 2014
Fantastic, excellent house fully equipped in perfect location 5mins from town, plus 2 parking spaces!
Fantastic house in great location. Fully equipped with everything you need, and more!!!! We were concerned about the steps, having a double buggy, but the hall way is big enough to house it, or we left it in the car. 2 parking spaces worth there weight in gold! Would definitely recommend.Charlotte - 12th July 2014
Fab holiday very comfy and conveniently located house
The house is very well appointed and comfortable with plenty of room for everyone and the kitchen has all you would ever need. It is extremely conveniently located within a few minutes' walk of Dartmouth town centre, a very pretty town with breathtaking scenery and fantastic shops and restaurants etc. Overall we really enjoyed our holiday. The only disappointment was the outside space, we knew the garden areas would be very small, but they could have been so much more inviting. Very uncomfortable old, worn outside furniture, broken step at the back, lots of pots with dead plants etc. The outside space was at odds with the high standard of the rest of the house. We were lucky to have glorious weather but hardly sat outside at no. 17 because the front and back gardens were both so uncomfortable and scruffy. Rectify this and you could not find a better rental in Dartmouth, it would make it superb.Karen from Solihull - 21st June 2014
Cottage clean and comfortable..ticks all the boxes-very we'll equipped..six adults well served with bathroom facilities. Parking a great asset.handy stroll to all amenities.Sue from yorkshire - 26th April 2014
Fantastic interiors slightly let down by external space
The property was very clean and offered a great deal of space for a family of five, which was important for a town centre location without a garden. The Victorian character of the house had been well-retained and was tastefully decorated, but with a modern kitchen that was excellent. The large lounge offered fantastic views across Dartmouth, with plenty of seating and high quality furnishings. The bedrooms were equally comfortable and well-appointed. The only downside was the exterior of the property, which was slightly shabby. The courtyard at the rear of the house could have benefitted greatly from an all-weather sofa or similar seating, as the plastic chairs were uninviting where a small haven could have been created. As a result, we didn't spend any time outside. Overall, the property is definitely recommended in its current state and superb location, but could be exceptional with just a few small adjustments. We'd definitely stay again.Carl & Laura from Godmanchester - 24th August 2013
Relaxing, comfortable.....pure heaven

It is very comfortable and well equipped and positioned in a perfect location, ideal for us and the kids (aged 16 & 19)and their friends as you can get about to so many places. I would highly recommend the property, its like home from home.Lou from Kent - 13th July 2013
We have just returned from a fantastic week in Dartmouth made all the more relaxing by Number 17. We found the house to be excellent, great location, extremely well equipped, spacious, comfortable and thoroughly clean. The house was a five minute walk from the town centre and the parking facilities at the property where essential. We will certainly be visiting the house again soon!!Kevin from Bournemouth - 25th August 2012

We all felt like we were at home!
We stayed at No 17 over Christmas 2011 and had a fantastic time, we were so grateful to the owner for putting up the fabulous Christmas tree and other decorations, the house looked great. A very comfortable and well appointed house, the very well equipped and stylish kitchen/ dining room being a particular favourite which accommodated 10 of us for Christmas lunch easily. We all felt like we were at home there and would highly recommend this holiday homeGareth of Gloucestershire - 8th January 2012

We had a great holiday in Dartmouth!
We had a great holiday in Dartmouth and the house was very comfortable with easy access to the town. Number 17 is in a great location and is very clean and comfortable. The fixtures and fittings in the bathrooms and kitchen were excellent as was the bed linen and towels. We also appreciated the orchids in sitting room and kitchen.Mrs Smith - 14th May 2011
