We have stayed here a couple of times and absolutely love the house, location and the distance we are to the town easy walking distance. We will be returning! Great communication from Blue river. Very helpful.
There is so much to do in Dartmouth but narrow roads make even short journeys time consuming. However, the location and the natural beauty has so much going for it.
The property in an ideal location as long as you are happy with steps, however without steps you don't get the elevation and the amazing view Melbrake has from the back garden and patio doors which is amazing. Lovely big house shared between 5 ladies, would love to stay again.
