BFB's Overview

This stunning 3-bedroom Bolthole excels at the magic formula of style, luxury and child-friendliness that the best Baby-Friendly Boltholes are all about. The Hideaway is one of three sophisticated yet family-friendly self catering properties set within an impressive Victorian villa, which nestles on a hill overlooking Dartmouth in South Devon. It is the most recently converted of the three and offers a combination of the best elements of each with a spacious interior living space to match The Penthouse and generous outdoor space, similar to The Glasshouse.



The Hideaway, was completed in 2013 and boasts 3-bedrooms and 2-bathrooms. It is tucked away at the end of Barrington House's spacious gardens and has been specifically designed for parent-friendly holidays, thanks to the attention to detail of its owners, and neighbours, the friendly Smither family, who include their own brood of little ones. As well as a private entrance, two dedicated parking spaces, contemporary interiors, two outdoor terraces, a private hot tub (from Feb. 14th 2014) and amazing views, it also boasts a great selection of toys and nursery gear, making it the perfect coastal bolt-hole for a large family or several small families holidaying together. Mini guests will love receiving an invite to meet 'Barrington Bear' over a picnic in his tree house, or saying hello to the Barrington bunny AKA Smudge the rabbit.

Grown-up guests will discover that the apartment has been lavished with attention both inside and out. The spacious 'lookout lounge' has lovely sliding glass doors with stunning views that open out onto an 'upper deck' outdoor lounge with impressive corner sofa, sun loungers and space for mini guests to sit and play or toddle about outside. Back inside, the huge lounge has the wow-factor with its nautical look and feel. There's a large corner sofa, numerous bean bags, a second sofa and even a kids corner with mini table and chairs and toybox. Of course the TV is flat-screen and a good 37'' in size with DVD player too.

Downstairs, the kitchen is contemporary coastal in look and feel with pale blue Charles Eames chairs, driftwood shaded wooden furniture and Cath Kidston accessories, along with all mod cons include such luxuries as a five-ring range cooker, intergrated dishwasher, waste disposal and Nepresso machine, along with the usual gadets and gizmos. It is a sociable room with central island and dining table, as well as access to its own separate laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer. There are also doors to the 'Lower Deck' terrace which boasta a BBQ and dining tables for both grown ups and little ones, who have their own picnic table.

Bedrooms and bathrooms at the Hideaway have been lavished with style too. There's a master suite which has been appropriately named 'The Retreat' thanks to its spacious feel, huge, custom-made driftwood bed, doors to the side patio and a glorious ensuite with both slipper bath and separate, walk-in shower. The second bathroom is a small but perfectly formed shower room with WC, that is shared between the two twin bedrooms, 'The Den' and 'The JW room', which is named for its trendy Jack Wills accessories. Both are decent size twins, the first having a coastal look and feel with oars on the walls, beach huts on the blinds, life bouy lamps and a sail cloth bean bag, and the second being more nautical with navy and white Jack Wills throws.


Accommodation Overview:
The Hideaway at Barrington House sleeps 6+cots in 3-bedrooms comprising one double with king-sized bed and ensuite bathroom, and two twins, which share a shower room. The large living area boasts doors to a spacious, decked terrace with dining table and sun loungers, whilst the kitchen diner has doors to both a seperate laundry room and a terrace with dining tables and BBQ. The kitchen itself is well-equipped kitchen complete with 5-ring gas range cooker, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle, wine fridge, instant hot water tap, waste disposal, built-in fridge freezer and Nespresso coffee machine. A private hot tub will pe provided for guests private use from Feb. 14th 2014. It is raised with a lockable cover for safety but is welcome to be used by toddlers with parental supervision.

Please note: The owners have an attractive tree house in their garden, which is mainly for their own children but mini guests are invited to enjoy it at a pre-arranged 'Teddy Bears Picnic' during their stay.

Location Information

Barrington House and its 'Hideaway' nestles on a hillside just 10 minutes walk from the very picturesque Georgian harbour town of Dartmouth. Known as one of the UK's most popular yachting havens, the town boasts a great selection of independent boutiques, bistros, cafes and convenient shops along its pretty cobbled streets. Boat trips depart regularly from its marina which is backed by a hotel with a luxurious little spa offering lovely treats for frazzled mums.


The award-winning, Blackpool Sands beach is within 10 minutes drive of the house and recently earned the accolade of being named Britain's Best Family Beach by Conde Nast Traveller and we'd tend to agree thanks to its handy car parking, cafe serving healthy kids meals and brilliant sand pit, which is ideal for little ones to sit and play in safety, as well as the wide sandy bay with shallow waters.

A little further afield there's Paignton Zoo, which has a great focus on conservation and animal welfare, as well as handy indoor soft play areas, should the weather not be ideal. There's also the fantastic Pennywell Farm Park with its animal feeding sessions, adorable miniature pigs and handy indoor play area. Steam train enthusiasts should head to Kingswear where a Thomas-a-like puffs up and down the coast thrilling little fans. Whilst the miniature pony centre at nearby Moretonhampstead is generally a big hit with mini riders too.

Foodies will not be disappointed, as well as the HQ of Riverfood Organics with its acclaimed kitchen cafe, there's the lovely Sharpham Wine and Cheese outlet with its vineyard and river tours with tastings, plus its own onsite cafe too. Dartmouth also boasts a wide selection of well respected restaurants from fine dining at The Angel or Seahorse, to gourmet fish and chips to eat in or take-away at Mitch Tonk's family-friendly Rockfish Seafood & Chips.

Who owns this place?

Hello! Barrington House is our family home which we love to share with visitors. We have owned the house for over 10 years and spent 5 of those years lovingly and patiently restoring the house and turning it into a fantastic holiday letting business. We have 3 separate holiday homes available - The Penthouse, The Glasshouse and The Hideaway . All 3 properties are set within the grounds of Barrington House but are all very private, each with their own style and distinctive features. The one thing they all have in common is that they all provideluxury accommodation to families.

Having 3 children ourselbes we know what it is like to holiday with children and how important it is that where you stay is as good if not better than where you live. Holidays are special and should be stress free in every way. Happy children means happy parents so we provide as many things as possible to make everybody happy!
