Cherub's Nest
Ranked #31 of 53 Dartmouth B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 October 2009

The best breakfast I have ever had in any Hotel or BB.
Very pleasant husband and wife who run the BB.
Only 10 yards from the Main Street.

What a find. Everything was just perfect from start to end. We received a wonderful warm welcome from Bev, Geoff and Chancer! The room was spotlessly clean and very comforable - best night's sleep in a long time, awakening to the best breakfast ever - the choice was superb. Will definitely be staying again, if they will have us! Pauline and Vint Wilcock.

Just back from a weekend in Dartmouth where we enjoyed our stay at this B&B. Firstly, a warm welcome although we were late. Managed to park very close which was lucky! Our room was on the top floor, large and very nicely furnished, v. comfy bed. The bathroom was small but perfectly functional and very clean. Plenty of choice for breakfast too. Great location (beautiful pub next door). Compared to some of the other places we'd looked at this seemed like good value for money and I would definitely recommend it.

A thoroughly charming and delightful B&B in the heart of Dartmouth, looked after by the lovely Geoff & Bev.

I can't recommend this place highly enough, the breakfast was one of the best I'd ever had, and the place was just adorable. Period features, bags of character and a beautiful selection of hanging baskets outside to welcome you into this wonderful home.

I was very happy to find the Cherub’s Nest at quite short notice. Just over a week before heading to the Dartmoor area, in Summer, I didn’t have many choices. Of the few available hotels and B&B’s many were charging well over £100 a night, some over £200. The Chrub’s Nest immediately appealed: It was under £100 a night, located in the great town of Dartmouth, and in a central location too, with a good rating on Trip Advisor.

It easily met my expectations. Firstly, the location is great. Two roads back from the waterfront in Dartmouth. Close to many bars and restaurants and importantly it’s not located at the top of one of Dartmouth’s massive hills. There is a compromise though. Parking is tough in Dartmouth when it’s busy. The Cherub’s is on a road with unrestricted, but very limited parking. If you can park on the road then it’s great. If not, you have two choices: I had to park a couple of times in a restricted area (up to two hours 9am-6pm), which was fine for overnight parking. The final backup is the main car park in town. The Chrub’s provided a free permit to park there, but it’s about 10 minutes walk away, and even that car park can fill up at peak times! This is, of course, no fault of the Cherub’s Nest, but a characteristic of Dartmouth. The alternative would be a B&B with its own parking, but this would most likely be outside the centre, up a massive hill.

Our room was nice and big, although it didn’t have a view and the shower-room was tiny. Probably the smallest I’ve ever used! But it worked well enough, and was clean.

Good breakfast with a wide choice of cooked options, friendly hosts, and a very relaxed come-and-go-as- you-please atmosphere.

As a B&B to use as a base for exploring the coast, Dartmoor, and enjoying Dartmouth, I’d absolutely recommend the Cherub’s Nest.

And one tip for Dartmouth: Take earplugs for when the seagulls start squarking at 5am!!!

Dartmouth has many Bed and Breakfast guest houses. This one I will visit again!

Fun and friendly hosts, comfy beds, amazingly quiet, and right next door to a pub, whose sounds you could hear only if you tried very hard indeed!

Excellent choice of breakfasts, good produce, and fresh fruit always available.

Central location. Parking by permit (included) or, with luck, right outside.

Just friendly. Who could ask for more.

Spent a few days in May staying at this Charming B&B conveniently located in the centre of Dartmouth. Dropping luggage off can be a bit of a problem due to narrow roads and parking restrictions, but this is more than compensated for by the owners Geoff and Bev giving you a car park pass that is not only valid for the nearby car park (5 minute walk), but also valid for some car parks at other locations, e.g. Salcombe. A big plus point!

The rooms are decorated and comfortable. Its location meant that the view from our room was restricted, but we weren't particularly bothered about that. The en-suite bathroom was small but perfectly acceptable. Geoff has also installed Wi-Fi for those who can't get away from email!

Geoff has lots of local knowledge and Bev cooks a great breakfast! Couldn't ask for more! Hope to get back at some point!
