Fernhill Reviews

4.9 out of 5 stars based on 7 customer reviews.

  • This is character property in a fantastic location, with a lived-in family feel. Everything worked as it should and the kitchen is super well equipped. The property was warm and cosy on arrival and our one issue was dealt with very efficiently.


    Great location with good view over the town and river from the front deck. And only 10 minutes walk downhill to the town centre (with a handy No 90 bus on the half hour back up the hill)
    Nice kitchen and adjoining dining and snug area.
    Bonus of 2 dedicated car park spaces.

  • This property is fantastic, perfect if you're looking for something quirky and homely. The attention to detail was second to none and the facilities and cleanliness were fabulous. The location is brilliant, just a 10 minute walk into the centre of town, the perfect base for a family trip around south Devon. The pictures do not give it justice; the view from the terrace is just lovely. What a lovely stay we had, and we would definitely love to come back!


    We had a wonderful time at Kate's house. The location to the town was brilliant just a 5-10 min walk. The views are stunning. The house is large so caters well for a large family. All in all a wonderful house to stay for a short or long holiday. We didn't want to leave. Thank you Kate.

  • Fabulous family home 5 minute walk from Dartmouth centre. Great amenities with excellent kitchen and entertaining spaces. Our 3 kids had a ball. Stunning views. Very clean. Highly recommended.


    A large spacious house high on the hill overlooking Dartmouth, a very steep climb to the entrance, but everything is steep in Dartmouth!
    The kitchen is lovely, a great place to sit and chat while cooking.
    Bags of room with three reception areas.
    Lovely decking for when the sun shines
