Stunning views overlooking Kingswear and both up and down theDart. Furnishings of high standard and a light and airy feel to the place. In the child's room downstairs the TV is on the wall meaning they cannot be glued to it! The property is aptly named as it is reached by over 30 stone steps/staircase. Not suitable for anyone with... more

Have a great stay at this lovely cottage. The views were the best ever. Very comfortable beds great heating and hot water. It will need a bit of a refurbishment soon though. As it says there are steep steps that could be a problem for some. We would return to this one. more

It's certainly worth climbing all those steps, but i get what you mean. I think I would enjoy a few glasses of Dartmouth's best each evening, that should help to... more

OK, first things first, finding the property from the top road was a little tricky as it wasn't exactly opposite the garage and the steps down weren't easily signposted but that's a small minus point and hardly significant but if directions could be improved then I'm sure other visitors would appreciate it. The steps (public thoroughfare) were pretty steep so... more
