The cottage was very comfortable and the views were amazing even if you did have to be a mountain goat to get to the car! We would definitely stay here again.

September 2017

We loved the property, very well placed in the town. So quiet at night the only noise we heard was the odd owl calling. We only used the snug once and didn't use the lounge at all, we spent most time in the kitchen extension. We'd never visited Dartmouth before but will definitely be coming back.

September 2017

We loved it here and would like to thank Toad Hall and their lovely staff for saving us when we locked ourselves out... The great guy who came with the key was so nice and understanding. Thank you.

A fantastic cottage in a brilliant location. We are really glad that we have discovered it and hope to come back soon.

October 2016

Everything we had hoped for. Lovely comfortable cottage, quiet and secluded yet very close to the centre of Dartmouth. We enjoyed the circular walk to Dartmouth Castle and Little Dartmouth, perfect for our dog.

Excellent stay once again at this lovely property. Great time had by all. We will hopefully be returning next year. Thank you

January 2016

This was our 5th visit to 42 Above Town and once again it was fantastic, the owner has carried out a fantastic and extensive renovation to the kitchen and added another room onto the property as well as a decking area above the extension which provides fabulous views of the River Dart. All in all a great place to stay in Dartmouth and already booked it again for 2016 /2017 New year week. The staff at Toad Hall Cottages offices are always exceptionally helpful and efficient 10 / 10 all round. Thank you Toad Hall b& the owner of 42 Above Town for making everything so perfect for us.

September 2014

42 Above town was a comfortable and relaxing property to stay in. The location was very good being 5 minutes walk into town and there was a pleasant garden with views from the top decking to the river.

June 2014

What a wonderful house, with beautiful views across Dartmouth and the River Dart. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and, with our two little Jack Russels, had great walks out to Dartmouth Castle and beyond. It is a perfect base to see all that Devon has to offer. Thank you

May 2014

Really lovely place to stay especially with garden for dog. Very we'll equipped and comfortable. Gorgeous view to wake up to. Thanks for lovely holiday, will return!

February 2014

Gorgeous house and even more lovely than the photos. We felt at home instantly and will definitely return. It was one of the best holidays we have ever had and we were really sad to leave. Also, there is so much to do with a toddler in Dartmouth and the surrounding areas.

January 2014

We have stayed in the same cottage, 42 Above Town, for the last 3 years over the New Year period and we have already booked for next year in the same cottage in Dartmouth. It is truly a beautiful cottage in an excellent position and we feel it is just like home from home for us. The owner is very obliging and the staff at Toad Hall Cottages are always very helpful. Thank you.
