Firwood is such a wonderfully large house. Perfect for all occasions and gatherings.
What a view! Sat on your patio, the passing steam train is a frequent occurrence, quite a spectacle.
The sitting-room is perfect to gather as a group and enjoy an evening of games and music, or perhaps a movie night using the supplied projector sounds like a nice plan.
This fabulous little hut provides the perfect spot for your barbecue food and drink.
The exceptionally well-equipped kitchen holds everything you could require for catering for 14 guests.
This glorious setting is really special. Looking out over the steam railway over to Dittisham and Dartmouth - views don't get much better than this!
From the entrance porch/boot room, you step into this lovely kitchen.
The sitting-room is such a fabulous space.
If the weather doesn't allow al fresco dining, why not banquet together in this lovely dining-room. The views are equally as stunning from inside.
Downstairs WC.
The hallway stairs lead up to the first floor bedrooms and bathrooms.
Bedroom 1 offers a glorious super-king size bed, which can also be configured as twins on request.

Bedroom 2 also offers a glorious super-king size bed, which can also be configured as twins on request.
The en suite to bedroom 2 is home to a stunning roll-top bath and shower cubicle.

The family room is the perfect bedroom for the younger members of the party. They can get a restful night's sleep away from the festivities of the main house, as they are on the second floor.
The family room offers this gorgeous little snug area sleeping two. What a great little den for one (or two) of the smaller members of the party.
The en suite to bedroom 5 (the family room) has a bath and a shower cubicle. Perfect to wash away the day's sand and suncream.
Firwood is situated in such wonderful surroundings.
Only a short stroll away you will find the charming Greenway Quay and Dartmouth ferry service, which will transport you over to Dittisham, Totnes and Dartmouth. This is the perfect day out.
Or perhaps a wander around Agatha Christie's Greenway House is on your agenda.This is such a stunning and popular attraction, and is right on your doorstep.
The approach to Firwood's main parking area is clearly signposted. Please stick to the right of the parking area to avoid blocking any of your neighbours in.
Once parked, the entrance gate to Firwood is just to the right of the wooden doors.

It was a lovely welcoming house. Lovely bedrooms with en-suites, a very well equipped kitchen and utility. A living room with a log burner. Lovely view over the river dart. In the summer it would be great having evening out on the decking It worked very well for our family group ranging from 2 to 85 years of age We would certainly recomrmend it to any large group. If we every come back to this area for a large family holiday, we would certainly 100% come back to this house

A lovely property in a superb, scenic location. We used it to bring the family together for a weekend celebration and couldn't have asked for a better property.

A brilliant stay at Firwood. The cottage itself very clean and comfortable. Very well equipped. Plenty of games (indoor and outdoor) for children of all ages. Watching the steam train from the deck proved a highlight for the children. Access to the ferries from Greenway is underestimated. The shorter walk not really suitable for buggies. The walk along the hilly lanes a good 30-40 mins, so allow time for ferry departures. The last ferry back to Greenway (from both Dittisham and Dartmouth) is before 5pm so a factor when planning a day out (no evening meals in the Ferry Inn - although we had a great lunch there). Dittisham great for crab fishing. No parking at Greenway, but lots of free parking at Kingswear for ferry to Dartmouth. Good local village shop and farmshop nearby.

We couldn’t have asked for a more fabulous base than Firwood. It was spacious, very very well equipped and beautifully furnished. The fact that we all had our own en suite was fabulous, nobody in the party could quite believe we didn’t have to share a bathroom!. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone travelling in a large group wanting to stay in beautiful surroundings and close to Dartmouth. Thank you to the home owners of Firwood and indeed to Classic Cottages. We have made some wonderful memories here and would happily return to make some more.

Lovely comfortable house but not as close to Dartmouth as you are led to believe and some issues need to be addressed

It's great to see that you enjoyed the house generally. The property is in Maypool, and is advertised as 2.1m N of Dartmouth as the crow flies - it's on the other side of the estuary and you can hop on a foot ferry from nearby Greenway Quay directly to Dartmouth. For more specifics about the exact location, click on the Explore Nearby tab above for a map (with road/satellite imagery options) which also shows some of the attractions in the area.

Beyond our expectations! Unbelievably beautiful property and location. The photos do not do it justice. We had such a great time. Incredibly family friendly and certainly did not expect table tennis and all the great indoor and outdoor games/equipment that were available. Spotlessly clean with beautiful bedding and towels. Great local information available and can definitely recommend the steam train and Greenway House both of which are just a short walk away. LOVED everything!

Amazing stay! Well equipped, we should have read everything before we got there lol but all worth our long weekend. The cottage is equipped with everything, from BBQ outside, games, sharpe knives, baking equipment, Bluetooth speakers etc etc! Everything you need is there. Never in my life have I been on holiday and not whine.( there is nothing to whine about. Everything you need is there) Games for adults and kids, dress up for children etc etc . We will be back. A short walk to catch a boat to go to the pub. Lovely walk. This place is so amazing and clean. And the pictures don’t do it justice. It is secure and big. We loved our stay.
