My wife had recently been ill so we went to Dartmouth House with some good friends to get away from it all have a nice relaxing time reflecting on the important things in life.
Dartmouth House proved to be an excellent property. It was spotlessly clean and tidy and all the bedrooms are a good size. In fact there was no room I wouldn't have been happy sleeping in. The lounge is great and the log fire provided a real cosy feel. The kitchen was modern with the benefit of a large table that everyone could sit round and chat whilst food was being prepared.
The weather wasn't great during our visit as it rained most of the time, but as the house was so nice it wasn't a problem. We just shut the doors and had good quality family time indoors playing games and chilling out, which is something we miss when we're back in the hustle and bustle of normal life.
The only disappointing thing was that due to the rain we couldn't really sit on the covered verandah and admire the well maintained garden. I imagine it is great on a nice warm sunny evening to sit there with a glass of wine!
The only thing I would add if it were my house would be a shower over the existing baths upstairs, just for convenience, but there is a shower room on the ground floor so it wasn't too much of an issue.
The owners were very friendly and I'm sure if we had any problems during our stay they would have been happy to help. I'd be happy to book the house again.
