We returned after an excellent holiday here last year. The cottage is clean, warm, comfortable and ideally situated close to the town centre and with excellent views over the river. The parking spot was a real bonus. We look forward to returning next year.

This is our second visit to Moon Cottage, it is a lovely place to stay. The location is superb, close to everything and you have all the comforts and facilities. It has a relaxed atmosphere and the bonus of the car parking space is priceless. I miss the sea views already, a real bonus. Really hope to visit again soon. Thank you !

A clean, warm, comfortable cottage, with excellent views of the river. Ideally situated, within a few minutes walk from the centre of Dartmouth. We really enjoyed our stay here and plan to return next year.

lovely cottage.Ideal location for Dartmouth.

Ideal location and comfortable cottage

Lovely property, excellent & convenient location with an added bonus of a parking place. Unfortunately a double bed upgrade very much needed (hence the low star rating)

Excellent roomy cottage in a prime position with good views of the River Dart.

Lovely accomodation with wonderful views of the river Dart, so much to see and everything you need within walking distance.

a lovely cottage in an excellent location which we would be happy to use again.

Lovely sunny cottage in a good location with parking and great views over park and river. It was spotlessly clean and hope to return later in the year.

We have been booking with Classic Cottages for a number of years now. The booking system is very easy, if you need to call them the team at Classics are very friendly and helpful. All of the descriptions of cottages we have stayed in have been accurate. We always have a fabulous holiday with Classics, I would thoroughly recommend them,

A comfortable, conveniently located property with easy access to the town. The parking space was a real bonus!

Lovely cottage with everything we needed. Close to the centre of Dartmouth just a short, flat walk away but still fairly quiet. Lovely view from the bedroom & sitting room.

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on Moon Cottage. It really is in an ideal spot for exploring; we're looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Julie, Customer Support

We really liked Moon Cottage and may well visit again in future, it is a lovely cottage in a very good location with the big plus factor of its own parking space

Moon cottage is well placed in the town with great views of the River Dart, and easy access to the vibrant town. There are also ample opportunities for walking further a field into the hills above the river. The cottage is comfortable, warm and has all the necessary facilities for pleasant stay.

We are so glad to read you enjoyed the setting of Moon Cottage - it is in a lovely spot. It sounds as if you had some lovely days out walking and exploring and we hope to welcome you back so that you can continue your explorations. Sarah, Customer Support

It is a lovely cottage; the living room very spacious, as is the bedrooms. The location is ideal, with a lovely view at the front, overlooking the harbour/river Dart and very quiet.

Would highly recommend.

A great little cottage in a fantastic location would definitely return, the cottage was extremely clean.

Moon cottage offers excellent accommodation and is perfectly positioned for you to enjoy all that Dartmouth has to offer. First class!

A comfortable cottage with some lovely gardens and overlooking a park. The location is perfect and very quiet. The shops are close by for provisipons if needed.

Such a useful location as we were so close to the Higher Ferry, close to the road leading out of Dartmouth and also had such a short walk into town. Really great if, like us, you've never been to Dartmouth before.

This is an excellent cottage in a convenient location with lovely views of the Dart and park. It is very comfortable, warm, and has several outside seating areas for the warmer weather.

Decor - yellow/blue/light wood went well together. Great location. Good for Dartmouth, boats, trains, paths, etc. Comfort - warm & snug. Beds & lounge seating good. Despite weather being rather wet, we had a good time.

A comfortable and spacious cottage in an ideal location

Ideal location for older people or families with young children and pushchairs who can’t manage the very steep hills all around Dartmouth. Overlooking the park is an extra bonus. Highly recommended and we hope to visit again in the near future.

Very comfortable cottage with good views of river and a few minutes walk to the town. Very clean and very well equipped. Loved it. Will be back next year.

3rd visit to Moon Cottage and didn't disappoint, very comfy and homely, nice to come home to after a busy day. A couple of minutes to town with a very good bus service to Brixham Kingsbridge,and Totnes,with lots of walks.And the added bonus of a parking space.????

Our second visit, properly clean and very convenient for Dartmouth and the Ferry.

Very good location and very quiet.

Perfect location, Car parking space is excellent - Bit of a slope up to the cottage - If you have a mobility issue its worth remembering.

Thanks for your review of Moon Cottage - we're delighted to hear that you enjoyed the wonderful location and the beautiful views along the river. The parking space for the cottage is located below the terrace with a short slope leading up to the row of cottages as shown in the photos on the website. Please don't hesitate to contact our friendly Booking Office team in the future however if we can be of any assistance with regards to access information. Bryony, Customer Support

Th e same review as you have published before from me! It really is a lovely cottage and the outlook very interesting to watch, people playing tennis dogs being walked boats going down the dart! And bonus a parking space!

We've stayed here several times, as the location is excellent and it comes with a private car parking space that our large family car can fit into!

However, the property is lacking is certain areas and some of the general maintenance tasks have been overlooked by the owner. It's small things, like a damp patch in one of the toilets, lamps not working, washing machine door being faulty (but still usable), DVD player being so cheap and flimsy that it only seems to work 50% of the time! We could see that in the visitor book, other guests had made similar comments but nothing had been really done to fix them.

On a positive side, the broadband WiFi had also been poor in this property, but this has now been upgraded and coverage and speed and now excellent.

In general, we would say the property isn't quite up to the usual standards that I would expect from Classic Cottages, and we've stayed in several over the years!

Thank you for your review of Moon Cottage - it's great to see you've enjoyed another stay there and that you appreciated the upgraded wifi. The points you've raised will be checked thoroughly and we will share your thoughts with the owners. Alison, Customer Support

Update August 2018 - the owner has replaced the washing machine, repaired the lamps and arranged for the cloakroom wall to be redecorated. The DVD player was checked and is working, but we'll certainly keep an eye on it - thanks again for making us aware so that improvements could be made. Kari, Customer Support

Wonderful location with parking space

Lovely cottage, ideally placed for stay in Dartmouth and with own parking outside a real asset.

Lovely comfy cottage. Perfect location and the added bonus was the private parking space.No problem with internet served us well.Best cottage we have stayed in to date.Nice to come home to after a busy day. Would have liked a better selection of bath towels and it would have been nice to have had a full length mirror.

Reply from Classic Cottages

Thanks for taking the time to let us have a review for Moon Cottage and we were delighted to hear you'd had a great time overall. Thank you for your suggestions regarding the bath towels and full length mirror and we'll certainly pass this on to the owner. Bryony, Customer Support

Great location with off road parking

Love Moon Cottage. It felt like home to us. Beautiful view and very comfortable. The problems we had with no internet did nothing to detract from this gem.

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're so sorry to hear you had problems with connecting to the internet - there is a new router (installed mid-April 2017), so wondered if perhaps your devices were still trying to connect to the old router using the details from your previous stay? We'll certainly check with the team at Moon Cottage to ensure there are no problems. Tanya, Customer Support

This property still has issues with WiFi. I reported this when I stayed last year, and was assured that the problems had been resolved. Nothing had changed. Also, the gardener turned up again at 8:30am one morning (just like last year) and I was also told that this would not happen again. The raised rear garden looks directly into the bedroom and bathroom and is a serious invasion of privacy. Nobody must read the comments in the visitor book located in the property, as several other guests have complained about the gardener and nothing appears to have been done.

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're so sorry to hear that you had problems with the WiFi. We understand now from our further conversations that you had an issue with varying signal strength downstairs, and as discussed we are visiting the property this week to check the upgraded router. We have previously asked that the gardener doesn't visit so early in the morning (he is not employed by Classic Cottages) but he obviously did, for which we apologise. Again, we have asked that the timing of his visit is altered if possible. Classic Cottages

Perfect location. Comfortable well equipped cottage ,our 3rd visit

A lovely, spacious, clean and very comfortable property. The cottage was in an ideal location to enjoy beautiful Dartmouth with all its attractions. We would happily recommend it to friends.

Lovely, comfortable, clean and quiet cottage in superb location and with its own parking space. Dartmouth is only a short walk away and most the major attractions are nearby; accessible by steam train or ferry. So you can leave the car at home, if you wish. Will definitely book again.

This cottage exceeded our expectations in every way. The location was fabulous and the walk into town was delightful. Full marks.

The cottage and it's location in Dartmouth was very good and the added bonus of having a parking space was very useful.

Moon Cottage is ideally situated to enjoy all Dartmouth has to offer, with the added bonus of a parking space.

Lovely position and view, very convenient for the town and river.

Great cottage in wonderful location. Allows Dartmouth to be explored by foot and other modes of transport. Good eating establishments within a stones throw.

Reluctant to add too much praise as it will be impossible to book!

Excellent location with car parking. Views from the lounge and master bedroom are fantastic. WiFi is a bit hit and miss as it appears to be shared with next door which is also a holiday cottage.

Reply from Classic Cottages

We were sorry to hear you had some problems with the WiFi signal - the router is shared, but to date this hasn't caused any difficultites. The signal seems to be dropping intermittently, but the Owner is investigating and has ordered a new router to see if this will help. Tanya, Customer Support

Comfortable well equipped cottage in ideal location.Parking a real bonus.It was handy for walking into town and the local pub .

Great location very handy to walk into to town on the level, and the parking space was a real bonus

Lovely cottage. Great location.

Lovely cottage in a superb location made better by the private parking. Everything in close walking distance for a superb holiday.

Moon Cottage is a delightfully comfortable, roomy cottage for two or three people, with a first class location for the centre of Dartmouth and the incomparable River Dart.

Very convenient to walk into town with lovely views from the cottage. Localised Parking space is an extremely valuable asset when deciding on a property in Dartmouth, which made Moon cottage the ideal choice for us. Will definitely use the cottage again.

We had a great week, perfect location a lovely pub very near.

Moon Cottage was comfortable and very clean. It is a bonus having a parking space. We will most certainly return here. It is walking distance from the centre of Dartmouth which has many good pubs and restuarants. The bus service is excellent a bonus of you don't wnt to use the car.

A perfect location for a restful holiday with plenty to do without using the car at all!

Lovely cottage, excellent location. We'll definitely be booking this again.

Comfortable cottage within easy walking distance of Town and waterside.

This is a really comfortable and cosy cottage within easy walking distance of the centre of Dartmouth. Provided with it's own parking space, it is so convenient and it is a joy to be able to forget the car on several days - walk to the town, take the ferry or boat up the river or go on the steam train. Lots of other attractions nearby as well. Well worth a visit but, please, do not all rush to rent it - we might want to return one day!

Very comfortable, well furnished and equipped cottage - also very clean - ideally situated in Dartmouth - plus parking outside the cottage - very important .

Apart from the state of the cleaning, we had a lovely holiday, the cottage is in a great location, with great views, where you can sit and watch the world go by.

This is a lovely house in a very pleasant location. There is plenty to see and do in Dartmouth and the surrounding area. A hidden gem!

the cottage is in a nice location and easy reach to shops ,resteaurants etc. and the view from the cottage is lovely.All round I would reccomend it very relaxing and quiet.

The only minor problem we had with moon cottage was with the heating and its controls
