The apartment was absolutely excellent. Over two floors, the apartment is so light and airy with everything you need the flat suited us perfectly. The main bedroom on the top floor was beautiful - a very comfortable bed and the black out blinds on the velux windows worked really well. Excellent power shower with instant hot water. I'd recommend earplugs just for the seagulls if you like to sleep with the windows open (we had 3 seagull chicks and their parents on the roof which was a little noisy). Otherwise such a peaceful apartment right in the middle of the town. Couldn't have been better placed. We bought fresh bread and quiches from across the road in Dart to Mouth - also highly recommend their cream teas! Downstairs the kitchen and living areas were great and the books and games were enjoyed too. Really efficient to get the keys via keypad system on the exterior and parking permit was all easily laid out inside too. Enough space to drop off bags and then park at the nearby car park. Lovely touch to receive the bottle of wine and jam from Bluerivercottages too. An excellent flat and we are looking forward to returning.Bonnie, London - 16th June 2016
Very enjoyable convenient for our needs.
Having the car park pass invaluable. Apartment well layed out n practical. Only one thing needed that wasn't supplied was a tea strainer. Thankyou Blueriver Cottages. Steve n JenSteve n Jen from Cornwall - 20th May 2016
Quite often, pictures are a limited way of giving you an idea of what you are actually going to experience when you arrive at your destination. The property was more than suitable for our needs and did give us plenty of space and allowed two families to co inhabit without the sense that there was no personal space. The accommodation was well maintained and had everything needed to give you a sense it was an extension of home regarding the facilities it had, including dishwasher tablets! Short of nothing really. It was suitable for the one year old baby who had enough room to move around. On two levels, it allowed us to spread out easily and sleeping arrangements were good, especially with a pull out king size that fitted our 6'.4'' son with ease. It was in the town, which made everything easy to reach and allowed easy local shopping and light strolls to the river front. Only things to consider with this area is the noise level of the seagulls that can effect sleep and we resorted to earplugs when required, especially if the windows were open. I would say that if there was a choice of location and seagulls, the location would win! Dartmouth itself is a lovely, unspoilt area with plenty of interesting sites and excursions like boat trips and steam train to Paignton. You do need the good weather and maybe a good itinerary, although there are endless walks if that's the plan! Overall, an excellent choice for us and would stay here again should we head to this part of the country.Dave Walsh from Manchester - 14th August 2015
Excellent property, great location!
Difficult to fault, the property is exactly as promoted, location in Dartmouth is excellent. Staff very helpful in accommodating requirements. We had a great time!The Bakewells - 7th August 2015
Very pleasant and comfortable.
Market View was a really well set up and attractively presented apartment, very clean and well situated. The owner has gone to some trouble and expense to achieve this. It is very light and airy and seems to have all anyone could wish for in the way of equipment; it also had some nice pictures and ornaments. We would use this place again-other members of the family were also staying in places run by Blue River which were also of a high standard. (Next time I will bring a shotgun to entertain the seagulls.)Chris and Mary, Cumbria - 14th July 2015
Comfortable and convenient for all amenities
Apartment was clean and well furnished. Well stocked with everything we needed. Very useful having the parking permit for town car park.Anon from Bedford - 30th June 2015
Market View and more besides
Our Easter Stay in Market view was most enjoyable. The accommodation was great in both quality and facilities. Located in the heart of Dartmouth, but quiet, both night and day. Close to all shops and quality restaurants, ferries and walks along the South West Coastal Path. The whole week was spent visiting castles and houses (Greenway), Totnes, and Salcombe.James(2) =Jenn+Hilary Robson from Leeds, Yorkshire - 9th April 2015
Fantastic stay in a beautiful apartment.
This apartment has everything we needed for our stay. It's luxurious, practical and convenient for all the attractions of Dartmouth.D fro Ross-on-Wye - 18th February 2015
Market View was an excellent place to stay. It was so convenient. The beds were really comfortable so we slept really well. The decor in the house suits the location-very nautical! Loved Dartmouth. I wish that we had known about booking a tour of the Britannia Naval Base long before we left home as it was booked out weeks before we arrived. The cover strip on the floor leading into the kitchen is lifting and needs to be reglued. The front door bell does not work! One of us was stuck outside without a key! Loved the quirky pictures on the walls.Sheryl from Clifton Springs Victoria Australia - 17th September 2014
Lovely town, beautiful house, stylish & very well equipped.
Market View is very comfortable & stylish. It has great up to date facilities & equipment. We have enjoyed our stay in the house very much. The nearby waterfront is very attractive & the beach at Blackpool Sands is also very enjoyable.Una from Birmingham - 2nd August 2014
Really beautifully furnished property, very spacious and airy. Market View is very well placed for most shops and restaurants......Friday and Saturday nights can be lively but it didn't bother us at all! Had some lovely boat trips, exploring the area, adventurous walks and of course the fabulous steam train. Can't wait to get back.......Katie from Kent - 18th July 2014
One of our best holidays,- ever!
We (four of us) came to Dartmouth for a fortnight, which included the week before and the week after our son's wedding at Dittisham. The sun shone for the first 13 of our 15 days (Including the wedding!) The Market View apartment was superb, so much so that we were sad to leave it!It was our first visit to Dartmouth and we soaked up every aspect,- boats, train, crab fishing, eating out and visiting local spots. Maybe our only disappointment was the trip to Paignton. We enjoyed the train, but after Paignton,we were glad to get back to Dartmouth! Thanks for everything,- we have even missed the seagulls since coming home!David & Margaret from Skipton, N.Yorks - 27th June 2014

Lovely, comfortable apartment love Market View!!
Market View is a lovely place to stay, beautifully presented, very well equipped with everything you could need and in a great location. It was very clean and welcoming. We stay in Dartmouth every year and this is definitely one of the nicest apartments we've stayed in and we would highly recommend it. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Devon.The Monk family from Rugby - 3rd August 2013
A magical family holiday
Market View is ideally located in the centre of Dartmouth. It is beautifully decorated and every possible amenity is provided to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible. The beds are the most comfortable beds we have ever stayed in a hotel or holiday let. The staff at Blueriver couldn't have been more helpful.Emma, Helmsley - 26th July 2013
Just a quick note to say thank you to all at Blueriver Cottages - we had a fantastic stay in Dartmouth last week (during the heatwave!), in Market View. The property was one of the best we have ever stayed in; it was spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped and beautifully decorated and furnished. It is perfectly appointed too, being right in the centre of the town a very short stroll from shops, pubs, restaurants, and the River Dart. We meant to pop into your office to say hello during our stay, but the time flew by and with two rounds of golf to play(!) and a lot of sightseeing, we ran out of time. We would certainly not hesitate to recommend the property, and Blueriver Cottages, to friends and family, and hope that we will be making a booking with you in the future.Ann & Colin - 24th July 2013
A beautiful apartment , everything you could wish for. Attention to detail was second to none. Great location too. We really enjoyed our stay and would definately stay here again.Jackie and family from Manchester - 1st June 2013
We've had a lovely time staying here
Apartment is very spacious and well designed, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Reminded us of Cannes last year. Location couldn't be better but being in town centre is a little noisy at night. You can walk to everything in the town and Kingswear and drive to surrounding towns.Peter and Susan from Hants - 24th August 2012
Relaxing, home from home.
The apartment is fabulously equipped & very comfortable. There are several little touches that make all the difference.Its location is ideal & provided a good base for exploring during the day without needing to drive.The staff at Blueriver were exceptionally accommodating- thank you.Sarah from Manchester - 17th August 2012

Our must do/high spots were: -Crabbing -Boat trip to Dartmouth Castle -Racing pigs at Pennywell Farm -Lighthouse visit at Start Point -Sandy beach at Mill Bay near Salcombe and great dam building -Fish and chips from the Frying Pan -Coleton fishacre - Wow! And a great cream tea! -Church just behind here well worth nipping into. Very old and beautiful interior. Such a well equipped apartment. Great kitchen equipment. Many thanks - we had a great stay. Want to buy a boat now.Sarah, Simon, Sam and Tom from Cheshire - 17th August 2012
