Property Details

The Old Wash House, winner of the 2019 VisitEngland ROSE Award, is a delightfully presented and recently refurbished Grade II listed property in historic Dartmouth. Retaining many original character features, including period fireplaces and the remains of the original wash house within its walled courtyard, this is a fascinating holiday home in a truly beautiful location. The property is in the Ford area of Dartmouth, just off Victoria Road and a 5-10 minute level walk into the town and its array of boutiques, galleries, restaurants and tea rooms, as well as the picturesque River Dart. Blackpool Sands beach is just a 5-10-minute drive away whilst Woodlands Theme Park is just three miles outside of Dartmouth, making this an ideal retreat for families looking to explore the Start Bay coastline and local attractions. The property is finished to a very high standard and has off-road parking for one car. The sitting room is comfortably furnished with a log burner effect gas fire, whilst the kitchen/dining area is beautifully equipped with built in appliances. There is also a fabulous ‘dog house’, a designated home for your dog to enjoy, plus a utility cupboard and dining area. With three bedrooms (two doubles - one en suite - on the first floor, and one single in the attic), plus a family bathroom, it is very well equipped for a family. Outside the property is a sunny paved terrace within the walled courtyard, with seating. There is also off-road parking for one car. Whether you are travelling with family or friends, this fabulous holiday home is perfect for up to five people and two dogs, looking for well-located Dartmouth accommodation.

Area Details


Situated on the banks of the picturesque River Dart, Dartmouth is a beautiful harbour town in South Devon, a perfect destination for all year round short breaks and holidays. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Dartmouth provides stunning countryside surroundings with the coast within very close proximity making this area one of the most popular for visitors to Devon. The beautiful estuary and the coast are home to many watersports such as sailing, kayaking and paddleboarding or why not try surfing at one of the nearby surf schools. Relax on the sandy Blue Flag awarded Blackpool Sands Beach, one of the most popular family beaches in the area or if feeling more energetic use the beach as a base for a walk as the beach is directly on the South West Coast Path.

Nearby Woodlands theme park boasts the largest watercoasters in Devon, a farm with all the family favourites including meerkats, all set within beautiful grounds of 100 acres.
