What a fantastic apartment. The location in Dartmouth town centre is ideal for exploring the shops and harbour areas. The apartment contained everything we needed for our week long stay (although a washing machine would have been useful). Our only criticism would be not mentioning the quirky,almost spiral staircase which my wife found difficult to negotiate at times.

“Fantastic house in a great location, the perfect base to explore Dartmouth”

We spent a wonderful week at Foss End with our baby daughter in June. We already knew and loved Dartmouth but this was our first time at Foss End. The key pick up was very easy and allowed us to unload straight away and begin our holiday. As anyone who knows Dartmouth will testify, parking can be a cause of stress, Foss End has a garage very close to the property which is a real bonus. A cot was provided as was a highchair, both were very clean and in perfect working order. A bottle of wine was also left by the owner to welcome us which was a lovely gesture. The property was very clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay, including a well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. The property really felt like a home from home and the owner had clearly spent time ensuring that we had everything we needed. We reluctantly left Foss End at the end of our stay but will not hesitate to book again when we return to Dartmouth. We left a sunshade from my daughter's stroller in the apartment, the owner had emailed me and arranged to post the item to us before we had even realised it was missing! This epitomises the professional manner in which the property is managed by the owner. Many thanks for a lovely stay!

“Perfectly equipped for a fabulous and easy stay in Dartmouth”

My partner and I visit Dartmouth every year and this yea wer chose to stay at Foss End for three nights in April.
Would we recommend this place? Yes!
It is clear that a lot of work has been put in to making this apartment a great place to stay. Essentially set over three floors there are three bedrooms housing a total of 6 people.
We only needed to use the 'master' bedroom which was spacious, light and airy. The bathroom which was conveniently located next to the master was also a very good size.
We made use of the self catering facilities and found the kitchen to be very well equipped with everything you'd have at home.
We loved the little touches throughout the apartment- especially the stone fireplace and the oars which were used to create the hand rail going up the stairs.
Fantastic location, right in the middle of everything but tucked away in a quiet street.
Thank you Kevin for your excellent communication and I am quite sure we'll be back!

“Perfect location, comfortable and well equipped...but be aware of the stairs!”

Overall a fantastic place to stay - close to town, including many lovely places to eat, an M&S food hall, a great boulongerie/patisserie to get breakfast, or to go to Alf Resco for an excellent cooked breakfast (go early to have any chance of getting a table). Easy to get a boat to dittisham for crabbing and lunch. Great park up the road for the children too.
Only difficulties were the amount of stairs - spiral carpeted staircase - one flight to get to living area, one flight to beautiful double bedroom & bathroom, and one more to get to bedrooms at the top. My parents coped well, but it would be difficult for those with any mobility problems or if carrying babies/small children. Also we found the sofa to be really slippery, as leather - difficult to get comfortable without slipping off!
Fabulous to have a garage to park in and not have to worry about finding a parking space.

We had a lovely time in this apartment, it had everything we needed for a relaxing break, and the location is excellent. The garage is also a bonus as parking is always difficult in Dartmouth. Thank you Kevin, we will definitely return

“Home from Home in a wonderful location.”

Stayed at Foss End for 4 nights for our son's passing out parade and ball. House is in a wonderful location, literally yards from everything, including shops, pubs, restaurants and the harbour. House was immaculate and we were greeted by a welcome pack which included a bottle of wine! The house lacked nothing in the way of facilities and household equipment. The lockable garage was about a hundred yards away and was a godsend as Dartmouth is so popular (even in December!) and not the easiest place to find parking places. I had the good fortune to bump in to Kevin while parking the car one day. What a really nice guy and extremely obliging and helpful. All our family were very impressed with the house and we all decided that we would always stay at Foss End any time we were in Dartmouth if it were available. Just like to say thank you again to Kevin and family.
