BFB's Overview

This elegant six bedroom Victorian villa nestles atop a hill overlooking the River Dart and the bistro and boutique crammed streets of Dartmouth. It sleeps 12 plus babies on its own, or up to 22 when booking the neighbouring two bedroom guest house and three bedroom penthouse apartment. Either way, the amazing views, fabulous horsebox bar, sunken trampoline and hot tub with a view, make it an ideal glamorous group getaway, or perhaps even a 'celebration staycation'!

Added to the hot tub, bar and views, another great benefit of this house is that there's unlikely to be any wrangling over the best bedrooms, since all are elegant, spacious and have great assets in the form of either stunning views or very luxurious ensuites. The communal areas are equally brilliant, especially the huge open-plan kitchen with its large, sociable dining table, fantastically well-equipped kitchen and toy-stuffed playroom. The latter is set behind a genius (safety) glass screen allowing grown-ups to enjoy relaxed meals and adult conversation, whilst also monitoring their little people.

The separate dinning room is perfect for more formal dinners, whilst a large luxurious lounge, complete with huge sofa and beanbags, is perfect for those seeking peace and quiet or movie nights thanks to the big screen TV and surround sound. However, there's little doubt the house's very best asset is its spacious garden with sweeping views over the waterfront and rolling countryside, as well as entertaining assets in the form of the sunken trampoline, secluded hot tub and brilliant horse box bar - perfect for showing off mixologist skills!
Gadget freaks will be in their element too with the instant hot water tap, wine fridge, waste disposal, Nespresso coffee machine, Novo music system and surround sound TV.
Accommodation Overview:
From the minute you enter the huge front door, its clear this house has the wow-factor but the bedrooms are where guests will really feel spoilt. There are two super king rooms with luxurious bathrooms, featuring both rainfall showers and freestanding baths; two twin bedrooms sharing a 'Jack and Jill' shower room, and with beds that can be zipped together into super kings; a king size bedroom with ensuite bathroom, and a bunk room with ensuite shower. Altogether there are six bedrooms and five bathrooms, all cleverly organised so that, if you wish, you can arrange for the adults to be at the front of the house in three large and lovely rooms, and kids can be at the back in three fun and fabulous rooms.
Downstairs there is plenty of room for everyone. The hub of the house is the enormous kitchen/dining/lounging/playroom which opens up onto the outside patio – perfect for morning tea and alfresco eating. The more formal dining room boasts an open fire,dining table for 10 and elegant lounging area; whilst the large sitting room has a gas fireplace, huge comfy sofas, swirling chairs, velvet poufs and bean bags mini guests will love! Parking spaces are like gold dust in Dartmouth but luckily the house boasts four car spaces with two by the main front door and two in the private driveway.
Please note: main stairs can not be gated but gates can be supplied and put on kitchen/bedroom doorways.

Location Information

The house 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.

  • That View! We've just returned home from a thoroughly memorable stay at the Penthouse at Barrington House. The property is excellently located high up on a hill, though only a 10 minute walk from the characterful town of Dartmouth, offering beautiful views of the River Dart and the estuary, flanked by the picturesque village of Kingswear on one side of the river with beautiful rolling hills on the other. It's difficult to imagine a more stunning view of Dartmouth than this, and we spent many hours soaking it in. The Interior The Penthouse makes for a very comfortable, relaxing and luxurious stay, as well as being baby-friendly. We felt well looked after by our hosts who had lavished on us a bottle of Prosecco and coffee capsules for the Nespresso machine. The decor is fresh, modern and relaxing and is a credit to the owner Sarah, who oversaw the magnificent refurbishment of Barrington House.

Baby Friendly The property is baby-friendly without compromising on style. There is a stair gate, and anti-slip mats in the bath as well as some colourful baby crockery, toys, highchair and travel cot. Dartmouth and the surrounding area On booking The Penthouse, we had deliberated as to whether Dartmouth would be the best place to have our base, given its more favoured neighbours Salcombe, Kingsbridge, Brixham, Paignton and Torquay. We needn't have been concerned: it was our favourite place during our stay and we'd recommend a stay here over any of the above! The town boasts many art galleries, a handful of characterful pubs and a number of boutique shops, meaning it offered an independent vibe and avoided the more tacky elements of the average seaside town. Our top recommendation If you do one thing on your visit to Barrington House / Dartmouth, go to The Seahorse restaurant for dinner. It's conveniently located on the water's edge, and the food and service were excellent.
