We had a good week at Dartmouth. Blue Moorings was ‘perfect’ for a post-Christmas break.
The location is excellent, on the river and just a 10 minute stroll into the town but quiet enough to have the private relaxing break we needed.
It was high quality as expected and lived up to your description and the photographs. Wonderful views from the lounge and main bedroom.
It is also very close to the ferry which is handy if you come into Dartmouth from the Torbay side as we did. Parking easy outside the door and visitor space very close.
Steve from the management company called us on our way down on the Friday and was waiting to meet us as planned to show us round the property.
He was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. He explained everything well. We noticed the tea pot handle was cracked and he popped back with a new one within an hour
The spa arrangements were fine, and it is only about 50 metres from the property. There is a nice pub serving good quality food close by and plenty of decent eating places even out of season. One or two attractions were closed for January but that wasn’t a problem for us. May encourage us to return!
All in all an enjoyable week.
We wont hesitate to use your company in the future if we are looking for a quality property in your area of operation.
Perched on the banks of the River Dart, Blue Moorings is a cosy waterside bolt hole. A luxury romantic retreat for couples overlooking the peaceful waterway, or an idyllic base for a small family holiday in Dartmouth.
Built to an exacting standard within the award winning Dart Marina Development, this exceptional holiday home on the banks of the River Dart has been furnished beautifully throughout; the oak-floored interiors combine eclectic prints and bold statement pieces of furniture with classic nautical nuances to offer a welcoming, modern holiday home that looks straight over the water.
The house is equipped with a Smart TV, Sonos music system and a toasty gas fire. Sleeping up to 4 guests across two sumptuous bedrooms, guests can truly unwind with full access to the Dart Marina Health Spa; comprised of a pool, steam room, Jacuzzi and gym.
Idly pass the time relaxing on the terrace and watch the marina go about its day; moored yachts gently bobbing on the still water with the occasional hoot of the Paignton and Dartmouth steam train puffing along on the opposite bank. Within a short walk of Blue Moorings, find yourself wandering the winding Elizabethan streets and discovering adorable and delectable restaurants. Dartmouth, and South Devon as a whole, are synonymous with excellent food, owing to its temperate position and excellent local produce, which has seen top gastronomic chefs take root here, such as Mitch Tonks’ award-winning Sea Horse.
Sailing and fishing are high on the agenda of activities, but for those who wish to remain on dry land, the South Hams offers a wealth of breathtaking walks, hidden coves and golden beaches to discover.
