Set on the edge of Dartmouth with delightful river views, Moon Cottage is one of a small terrace within easy walking distance of the town centre. This charming house (so-called as a previous owner purchased it on the day of the 1969 moon landing) has a nautical blue and cream sitting/dining-room, a modern kitchen and a terraced rear patio garden on two levels. There is also a bench outside the front door and another lower seating-area, perfect for watching the hustle and bustle on the river. Upstairs, the double bedroom has good views and there is a pretty single bedroom to the rear. This special house is sure to appeal, no matter what time of year.

Dartmouth is a lovely place where there is always something to do; browse the mix of interesting shops, visit the galleries and churches or dine out in one of the many excellent restaurants. Alternatively, why not book a boat trip on the delightful River Dart, or catch one of the ferries and explore Kingswear and Torbay?
