Merchants Rise, set in the heart of the historic town of Dartmouth, is a stylish second floor apartment housed within one of the country's most important Grade I listed buildings. Lovingly restored to retain many original features, including wood panelling, this beautifully finished apartment melds old with new cleverly, offering modern living and comfort, yet with all the character of this former 17th Century Merchant's House.

Internally, the property is modern and well-equipped offering a wealth of character with original wood panelling, stunning mullion windows and a character fireplace. The open plan kitchen dining area is a fantastic space with contemporary high gloss units. Unusually for Dartmouth, the apartment even has its own secure garage just 250 metres away, which is suitable for one car.

Dartmouth is a pretty town p...

As per the other reviews, the stairs are a dominant feature in the property and although there was a description of the steep stairs, we hadn't realised that there are in fact a total of three flights of wooden... more

Great apartment. Very clean, very well equipped, great information book for guests and just the best location. We had our dog a big Rottweiler and it was perfect for him too. Great walks to be had in and around the area. Most you would need the car but you can leave the car at home and get the ferry and... more

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 18 January 2015 for a stay in October 2014

This was a superb apartment in a fabulous location. We really enjoyed our stay. The steep staircases were OK for us (although would not attempt in high heels) but I would not recommend for elderly people. The Radio Dart café next to the apartment was a great place to get breakfast or a few drinks in the evening. We would... more
