Loved it and although lacking a garden it is not great for dogs my boy wonder managed fine. I particularly liked having two en-suites on a separate floor so I can invite friends to stay without them being on top of me. Kitchen a bit cramped but there's not much you can do about that.

August 2017

We had a great stay overall. The location of the cottage was superb and held lots of interesting and helpful information for us to find places of interest. We would stay again.

July 2017

This was a great holiday and all the family enjoyed the cottage. The location was amazing stepping through the front door right onto Foss Street! Wonderful. A huge plus was the use of two car park permits which more than paid for themselves in convenience and piece of mind in various car parks used during our visit. Excellent service offered by yourselves where we felt valued as customers and we'd more than happily recommend you to others.

Fantastic property, excellent location, Dartmouth was beautiful. Will definitely recommend and will be back ourselves - brilliant! (And the sun shone too!)

The downstairs of the house is small but the location is excellent and the 6 of us and the 2 dogs had a wonderful holiday. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds very comfortable. Dartmouth is an excellent base to explore the south devon coast and there is lots to do close by.

Grants Cottage was ideal. Very comfortable , well equipped and a perfect location for all facilities in Dartmouth and the surrouning area. Clean and spotless and the housekeeper should be congratulated. The bottle of wine was a lovely gesture - thank you. Marilyn and Mike Smith

March 2015

The cottage was perfect for our requirements. Close to the center of Dartmouth and the car park yet remained very quite and peaceful. Great location. We can not fault Toad Hall. Helpful a pleasure to deal with. It won't be long before we are using them again.
