We stayed in a Dartmouth on Green close (plot 287), which was a beautiful spacious cottage. Ideal for a big family, but it was poorly maintained. We walked in to a disgusting smell, which we eventually discovered was coming from the bin. The bin had been emptied, but the used bin liner was left in there and not replaced. Scrubbing and bleaching a bin to get rid of the smell was not a good start to my holiday. The rest of the cottage needed a bit of extra cleaning, cobwebs etc in places. There were also other minor maintenance issues, like broken window handles. It was not enough of an issue to spoil our holiday though.
The beds were uncomfortable and cheap, making it difficult to get a good nights sleep. But the cottage was warm, even in January, and the location was good.
The site was pleasant and quiet, however they are still building in places. The swimming pool was clean, and the beach is worth a visit. We also enjoyed a few nights in the on-site pub.
I would visit this site again, but book privately, rather than through Hoeseasons. The cottage we stayed in was lovely, but could have been so much better with a little more care.
