Description

Merchants Rest, set in the heart of the historic town of Dartmouth, is a stylish first floor apartment housed within one of the country’s most important Grade I listed buildings. Lovingly restored to retain many original features, including a stunning Charles I plaster ceiling with cherubs and intricate mouldings, this beautifully finished apartment melds old with new cleverly, offering modern living and comfort, yet with all the character of this former 17th Century Merchant’s House.

Internally, the property has a large open plan living, kitchen and dining area with stunning original mullion windows that span the length of the living room.  These cast natural light onto the intricate plaster work, the original fireplace and the chic, high gloss fitted kitchen creating a light and airy feel.  Unusually for Dartmouth, the apartment even has its own secure garage just 250 metres away, which is suitable for one car.

Dartmouth is a pretty town perched on the River Dart offering a wealth of charm and character. The town is full of cobbled streets, stylish boutique shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants serving high quality local produce and sea food in particular.

Dartmouth is ideally located for exploring the neighbouring towns and beaches of Torquay, Brixham, Salcombe and the wider South Hams. There is so much to do locally ranging from steam trips on trains and boats to visits to zoos and museums,  or you could just take it easy and enjoy the spectacular natural beauty right on your doorstep.

Amazing - Merchants Rest - Dartmouth.

Absolutely wonderful accommodation - excellent that it comes with 1 parking space (all be it a tight squeeze for 5 series BMW) would definitely recommend anyone going to Dartmouth to go for this accommodation. Parking is a nightmare in the town if you dont have allocated parking. It is right in the centre of Dartmouth, short walk to cafe's, shops and the harbour. Light, airy apartment, only criticism would be the shower (made the most hideous squealing noise) We will definitely being making a return visit.

Merchants Rest, Dartmouth,Merchants Rest, Dartmouth

We enjoyed our stay at Merchants Rest, the apartment was lovely and perfectly located in the centre of Dartmouth. We only had two small issues and that was the very noisy shower and a slight odour in the living room. We would definitely stay here again.,We enjoyed our stay at Merchants Rest, the apartment was lovely and perfectly located in the centre of Dartmouth. We would definitely stay here again.
