Fabulous house with exceptional views

By 848christinec on 28-Jul-2020

We have just spent a week at this amazing house. It is beautifully presented with all necessary amenities required for a week. The house was set up for covid very well. Beds very comfortable and rooms spacious and plenty of storage. The outdoor decking is a gem with amazing views of the estuary. Easy to just sit on the deck or in lounge and just enjoy the view. The location to town is great with restaurants and shops nearby just the steps to contend with on the way back. Plenty of walks nearby and once car is parked courtesy of pass in town you can just enjoy your break car free. A fabulous house would definitely recommend.

Kittiwake is a very lovely cottage with stunning views

By Anne on 03-Oct-2019

Kittiwake is a very lovely cottage with stunning views. Shame no parking outside/near property as even though have car parking permit, means you have to carry shopping etc up about 90 steps!! Road outside Kittiwake is extremely narrow. Plenty to do in Dartmouth and would recommend The Dolphin pub near the market for Sunday Roast and Taylors for a special meal. Could not fault the cottage, unless possible to include somewhere a second wc. Very high standard of fixtures and fittings and very comfortable beds. Very well equipped kitchen, but needs kitchen scissors. Would definitely stay again and would also recommend it very highly.
