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.

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.

The host, Lizzie, was very welcoming and quick to respond to my messages and queries. The room was lovely and the bed very comfy to sleep in! With the house right on the waterfront it was perfect for an evening stroll along the river. And the breakfast the next morning was amazing! So much delicious food and I felt very relaxed in the living room while gazing out over the river. A great place to stay.

This was the 3rd time I stayed at Lizzie’s and as always, it was a lovely experience. Lizzie and her husband are very friendly and both have a great sense of humour. Cozy room with a comfortable mattress and soft bed linen. And of course the fabulous breakfast with the stunning view and home made jam something I will keep in my happy memories.

We stayed in Dartmouth overnight as we we’re going out for a special meal. Lizzie’s place was perfect! A few steps from the town and right on the sea front. We booked both rooms which were comfortable and clean. Lizzie made us feel very welcome and had thought of everything… to have a fridge in our room was a treat as we were able to buy some yummy cheese from the local deli and keep it cool.
Breakfast was gorgeous and to sit overlooking the harbour was a real treat.
Would heartily recommend a say 😊

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?
