1 River View, a delightful salmon fisherman’s cottage dating back to the late 1800’s sits above the village slipway with stunning views down the beautiful River Dart estuary. This is a great venue for a family holiday where the kids can spend hours crabbing and messing about on the foreshore or feeding the ducks and swans on the Mill Pool. The more adventurous can hire kayaks in the season (or bring their own) and potter up and down this beautiful stretch of water which flows downstream to Dartmouth or upstream to the Bohemian town of Totnes. The cottage has been totally renovated in a fresh seaside style and provides tasteful accommodation with a cosy woodburner for those chilly spring and autumn evenings. The bench in front of the cottage is an ideal place to sit, relax and watch the world go by, but the village of Stoke Gabriel has two pubs, restaurants and a great waterside café all within a short stroll. There are some lovely riverbank walks to enjoy with the dog and all the attractions of Devon, from the sandy beaches to the wildness of Dartmoor are readily accessible by car.
Stable door to living room with corner leather sofa, woodburner stove and 42 inch TV with Blu-ray DVD and Freesat +. Attractive rear kitchen/ diner with quality oak units, induction hob with oven under, fridge with icebox, dishwasher, microwave and washer/dryer. Dining table with seating for 5.

Aside from noted improvements, we had an incredible stay and the house was absolutely perfect. The kitchen was stunning and our dog loved the garden area. And the views from the large glass front upstairs was beautiful. All round amazing holiday and will definitely come again.
The location while very good is also very busy because of the car park which is right next to the property. The photos were obviously taken early in the year because there was hardly a space to be had in the car park and cars were coming and going all the time. I accept this property is set up for kayaking and fishing and admittedly if the weather hadn't been so extremely hot we would have spent more time away from the property as it is an excellent base for the area.
A lovely comfortable cottage in a beautiful location
Wonderful property in a wonderful location, we would of loved to return here but understand it is not available for rent any more so sadly we cannot so will look at all your other lovely properties. Stoke Gabriel is a beautiful location.
1 River view is in a delightful setting, car parking is good with a very helpful attendant. The house is very well presented with everything needed for a great holiday.
The setting of the cottage by the water's edge in a beautiful village in the beautiful Dart valley was brilliant.
A lovely property, in a great location. The cottage is furnished to a high standard and the decor is very good.
What a lovely cottage in a beautiful location! Must be one of the best cottage locations we have stayed in! The cottage itself had everything we could have wanted for our week away, the furnishings were so lovely, it really was like home from home, which is what we look for in a holiday cottage!! Stoke Gabriel is a really lovely place to stay, very relaxing with the added bonus of a well stocked village shop, post office, small restaurant and a couple of pubs!!
We had a lovely relaxing holiday at 1 River View, Stoke Gabriel and the booking procedure was so easy. We will be definitely be booking future holidays with Toad Hall Cottages!!
Perfect location for our holiday. An immaculately presented cottage right by the river.
Had a truly lovely holiday at the cottage. The furnishing and cleanliness of the place was fantastic and the views first thing on a morning were breath taking. Thank you very much!
Great holiday- shame a Fri-Fri changeover!!!
Great holiday, just a shame Fri-Fri changeover
<p> Most of our cottages are either Friday to Friday or Saturday to Saturday. The Friday to Friday changeover allows the owners to snatch a long weekend on the few occasions that the cottage is free!</p>
