Eight Bells Bed & Breakfast​​

We are a small friendly bed and breakfast in the centre of Dartmouth, right on the waterfront, with stunning views of the River Dart across to Kingswear. The bedrooms are on the ground floor. Each bedroom has a king sized bed with a very comfortable mattress. The front bedroom is a cosy en-suite double room, with a king sized bed and walk-in shower. The second bedroom (double/twin/family) has a king sized bed and 2 single beds with en-suite including a bath and a shower, which can be converted into a twin room or family room for 4 people (2 adults and 2 children). There is also a cot with bedding available. The bedrooms are equipped with flat screen TV, fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer, cotton towels and central heating when required. Also, Wi-Fi is available for guests to use. We may be able to help with parking on request.

Enjoy our wonderful cooked breakfast while taking in the unrivaled Dartmouth riverside and sea views. Breakfast is available from 7:30 until 9:30 (or at other times by special request). There is a choice of breakfast and vegetarians and special diets can be catered for.


The historic port of Dartmouth is one of the gems of Devon and indeed the whole country. In the town there is a fascinating collection of historic buildings where ancient narrow streets host a collection of shops, art galleries, pubs, cafes and restaurants. A cobbled marketplace features colourful stalls and a regular farmers market. Dartmouth is an ideal base for sailing, fishing and exploring the River Dart and south west coast by boat or on foot. Take the steam train ride to Paignton for a treat or visit Dartmouth Castle, Britannia Royal Naval College and local National Trust Gardens.

This was the second time I stayed at Lizzie’s home. Great location in the town centre with fabulous view of the river Dart, delicious breakfast (wide selection!), comfortable bed, en-suite bathroom. I really loved Lizzie and her husband’s warm hospitality and their tips for places to visit. Lizzie is an excellent host, I will definitely go back again.

Loved visiting Dartmouth and staying at Lizzies. It’s a cosy little room, just as described and sat in the most incredible location. We really appreciated Lizzie accepting our request at the last minute and had a great nights sleep, shower and breakfast! What more could you ask for?

Great breakfast choices, in a room with an amazing view. The front bedroom is tight for space, but otherwise very comfortable. Ideal location for the ferry, yacht club, shops and restaurants.

Lizzie is a top host. She saved us a parking space right outside, gave us great tips on the locality and provided a tasty breakfast the next morning. Would certainly recommend her place as a base for exploring Dartmouth.

A fabulous place with such a lovely view. Breakfast upstairs looking out of the water was amazing. So many choices on breakfast. The room and all the lovely little ammenities one may need and is an amazing location looking right across the harbour. Will definitely stay again when we’re back in Dartmouth. Thanks so much Lizzie for being a great host, excellent communication too!
