The property

A house for all seasons, this super family holiday home is enviably positioned, elevated above the historic maritime town of Dartmouth. Set back from the bustle of town, a ten minute walk will take you to the river where you can stroll along the promenade or browse the myriad of independent boutiques and art galleries that line the town's ancient narrow streets. Boasting an array of cafes and restaurants that are second to none, choose from fine dining to award winning fish bars, or for those who would rather dine in, the finest locally produced foods are all readily available on your doorstep.

Set against the backdrop of the sweeping River Dart, this recently renovated and generously proportioned house bestows an air of uncluttered elegance, its wonderfully light and airy interior is comfortable and offers ample space for two families to gather and enjoy a very memorable holiday. Currently arranged over two levels the 'L' shaped open plan ground floor features a stylish glossy white kitchen equipped to the highest of standards with central island and useful utility room. Up to twelve guests can gather comfortably around the large dining room table for family meals or relax in the beautifully presented, sunny lounge furnished with a selection of soft comfortable sofas. Step through patio doors onto an impressive decked terrace where superb far reaching views extend over the town and river towards the colourful village of Kingswear. Four bedrooms each dressed in white linen occupy the first floor, the master room providing ample room to accommodate two additional truckle beds if required to create a versatile family room. A further study room with double sofa bed on the ground floor can double up to a fifth bedroom.

Due for completion end of June 2017 the property will offer a further bedroom, bathroom and useful lounge, on the lower ground floor. These facilities have yet to be completed and are not guaranteed and subject to change

The indoor swimming pool will be available only from 15th July to the 2nd September.

The ample grounds are surrounded by large lawned gardens and gates that offer security for young members of the family to play outside. For those who can tear themselves away the Blue Flag beach of Blackpool Sands is just a 4 mile drive where an array of water sports can be enjoyed. There is plenty of parking for up to 5 cars. If you are looking for a dream holiday with family or friends, Hillhouse has to be the perfect choice!

About the location


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. 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 Blackpool Sands and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular sandy beaches are a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.
