    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    The view of the River Dart from the living room window is breathtaking. The apartment, which dates from the time of Vice Admiral Lord Nelson, comprises a bedroom, bathroom, fully fitted kitchen and living room on the first floor, and a bedroom and en-suite bathroom on the ground floor. There are external doors to both floors. Dartmouth has many craft shops, restaurants and hostelries, and is an ideal base from which to explore the River Dart and south west coast, whether on foot, by boat, steam train or car, as well as the nearby towns of Totnes, Dartington, Kingsbridge and Salcombe, and Dartmoor itself.
    Guest Book Comments: 'Our 4th. visit to Dartmouth. The best accomodation by far; warm & welcoming, wanting for nothing & spotlessly clean.' Sue & Steve, Essex (Sept. 20...

    Additional amenities & feature info
    The apartment has a naval theme, particularly in the tiling of the kitchen and 2 walk-in showers. There are prints of Lord Nelson and a fine telescope. The living room window, beneath which the dining table can be placed, can be fully retracted to maximise the view (see photos). The downstairs French bed can be converted to a sofa to provide a second living room during the day, if required.

This is a great option in Dartmouth. After a very long 6 hour car journey (long delays on the dreaded M5!!) we were greeted by a wonderful unexpected surprise... a lovely chilled bottle of complimentary Champagne, so we sat admiring the truly superb view whilst sipping the delightful bubbles. A great start. The apartment is split over two floors with... more
