Dartmouth, Devon, England
Barrington House is an elegant historical Victorian property standing on its own gorgeous grounds, beautifully restored and furnished with unbelievable views of the River Dart. It is a haven of peace and tranquility yet only a short stroll down to the heart of Dartmouth.

Most importantly, it is our home that we love to share with visitors.

It more than satisfies all prerequisites for an idyllic self catering holiday – the space to spread out, comfortable and luxurious accommodation, personal and thoughtful touches and a unique and beautiful setting. We are very baby and child friendly and have an endless list of baby equipment available. The twin room is set up...

Interaction with guests
I live with my family in the main house called Barrington House. We are completely separate and private and you can't hear us and we can't hear you! In fact the only time you might get a glimpse of us is if we happen to bump into each other in the driveway. However, we are also nearby should you need any help or advice or suggestions or if you want to simply say HI!

About the neighbourhood
Barrington 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.

Dartmouth is a wonderful bustling town offering something for everyone:
Crab fishing, cinema, pirate park, putting green and the best ice cream flavours for the little ones.
Beautiful boutiques, shoe shops, swim shops, home wares shops and galleries for the grown ups
Quaint and quirky pubs, award winning restaurants, wonderful delies and the best fish and chips for the whole family.

Foodies will not be disappointed, as well as the HQ of Riverfood Organics with its acclaimed...
Getting around
Getting around is easy and interesting in Dartmouth - whether it be by foot, car, bus, taxi, train, steam train or boat. Many people leave their car in the drive and don't use it for the rest of their holiday. However having parking at the house does make it easy should you wish to pop out in the car.
