A delightful coastal style property with views over the River Dart with two bedrooms sleeping four guests. This beautifully furnished family home has an open plan living/dining room, a warm and relaxing space with a couple of sofas and table and chairs. A door leads out onto the enclosed courtyard garden, perfect for alfresco dining and safe for children and dogs.

Dart Retreat is ideal for couples or a small family looking to escape to this beautiful spot in South Devon.

Stoke Gabriel is a lovely riverside village, within easy reach of Paignton and Torquay, Totnes and Historic Dartmouth (via the ferry). The village itself has a post office, shop, a couple of good pubs and a restaurant. If you’re into watersports, this is the perfect place for you… Dart Retreat is just a two minute walk from the water so pack up your paddle board or kayak and escape!

Get out and about and explore… the model village at Babbacombe is delightful to walk around and nearby Paignton Zoo is well regarded for its wildlife conservation efforts with an impressive collection of wildlife including a Komodo Dragon! Further afield, head inland and explore the Dartmoor National Park with its tors and myriad of walking trails. So whether you’re looking for a relaxing break or a family holiday with children to entertain, there’s something for everyone!

Mrs Dawn L,

A great base for safe dog walks, 4 or 5 different 45-2hr walks 100 metres from the front door. We had 2 pubs, 2 restaurants, 1 small shop and all were top notch. If you want the most out of the area, join the National Trust.

Mr David T,

Beautiful place lovely location but beware narrow country roads for the last few miles

Mrs Michelle H,

We had a lovely time at Dart Retreat. It is very comfortable, well-equipped, and in a good location. It was nice to have parking, and the enclosed patio to keep our bicycles in was very useful. We would stay there again.

Mrs Lindsay R,

We would definitely recommend the property/area & team to our friends & relatives. I'm sure we will be back very soon.

Mr Stuart L,

Excellent property, well maintained and nicely furnished. Situated in quiet and lovely village, 5 minutes walk from the mill Pond and the River Dart.

Mr Brian T,

Lovey time we all had, including our 2 dogs. Perfect base to meet up with family who live and work in the area. We would love to return. Thanks, x

David & D,

A delightful location, with excellent personal touches made by the owners, plus a real treat of finding a wonderful cake for us, plus bottles of cider, on our arrival. Stoke Gabriel was a peaceful beautiful location too. Dart Retreat is a wonderful place to escape from the rat run, and to be surrounded by the wonderful River Dart and surrounding countryside.

Dart Retreat was a true home from home experience. It was very comfortable both in ambience and facilities provided.
