    “We will be booking to come back, amazing place to stay, beautiful views, every thing thought of for what you need, kids loved the space and the pool.”

    It was as said very hard to tear our selfs away from the place, but we were blessed with some lovely sunny weather so teared our selfs away for a short while! Then realised how close every thing is and how lovely the town of Dartmouth is. What a treat stay this was, the owner answered any queries quickly and all communication was clear. Fantastic place and love all the effort the owners have made to ensure you have every thing you need and all the info you could need especially thoughtful ...

Fantastic place and love all the effort the owners have made to ensure you have every thing you need and all the info you could need especially thoughtful welcome book that helped poo t out every thing nearby, loved the pics of the build of the boat house process. I personally feel for the views around you and the quality of the place you are staying In the price is fair. We woke up one day to a massive cruise ship infront of us! It was incredible. We will be back thanks so much for having us.

The property

Standing on the banks of the River Dart, within a short stroll of Dartmouth's fine selection of cafes, wine bars, boutiques and restaurants, Bight Boathouse occupies an elevated position, boasting the most magnificent river views in either direction. Part of the historic Bight Boatyard that stands prominently high over the estuary, Bight Boathouse is a traditionally styled, furnished, spacious, detached residence arranged over three floors, boasting its own private 8 x 4m, indoor heated swimming pool on the lower ground floor.

Also equipped with sauna, poolside gym and table tennis room.

Four spacious bedrooms occupy the top floor, three with river facing verandas equipped with tables and chairs for relaxing and enjoying the panoramic views.

(care must be taken with children on all balconies, due to the considerable drop below).

A spiral staircase leads down to the spacious, open plan living area, spanned by wall to ceiling windows to take full advantage of the mesmerising river vista.

Furnished with 3 large settees and a large dining table, there is a pool table and further snug equipped with games, and videos to keep adults and children entertained for hours.

A large well equipped kitchen will make catering for a large party a breeze and also offers a breakfast seating for 8.

Spend summer meal times dining alfresco on the balcony equipped with patio table, chairs and barbecue, or while away the hours watching the river traffic come and go. There is much on offer for all ages and interest in and around Dartmouth.

A river cruise along the Dart to Totnes is by far the best way to take in the spectacular scenery or if you prefer, take the steam train from Kingswear to Paignton to enjoy the beautiful views.

Stroll into the town and enjoy browsing the boutiques and galleries that line the cobbled streets.

Dartmouth offers a multitude of dining venues to choose from fine dining, award winning fish restaurants, trendy cafes, tea rooms and cosy traditional pubs with open fires.

If you are a beach lover head to the sheltered, sandy bay of Blackpool Sands, just 3 miles, where there are a number of water sports available to try and equipment to hire

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

About the location

DARTMOUTH

Totnes 12 miles.

Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon. It offers a stunning waterfront, ancient narrow streets lined with boutique shops, restaurants and art galleries plus many local events such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, along with the Dartmouth Food Festival held every October. There are many interesting cycling and walking routes around Dartmouth, including the South West Coast Path, the Dart Valley Trail and plenty of quiet country lanes. A trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway through picturesque countryside to Paignton is a must, and so is a boat trip across to Kingswear and on to Brixham, a pretty little harbour town. For those seeking some beach activities, there is a wide choice in the South Hams area such as Blue Flag Award winner Blackpool Sands, and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular and just a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.
