A beautiful, pink, Grade II listed 2.5 bed holiday cottage in the heart of Dartmouth, South Devon. Built in 1780 as part of Dartmouth Jail.

We have always given 100% refunds to our guests due to lockdown restrictions. We always will. Normal cancellation policy rules don’t apply under these circumstances.



The space
As you walk into The Pink House, you walk directly into a brand new open-plan kitchen dining room.

There is a large Belfast sink, solid wood worktops, a single electric oven, domino induction hob and a microwave, toaster and Sage kettle (which looks very stylish). There is plenty of crockery, serving dishes and little dishes for olives, crisps and dips and glasses (including beer and large gin glasses and champagne flutes). There is seating for 5/6 people around a farmhouse kitchen and a wooden armchair in the corner of the room. There are hooks etc by the front door for coats.

The living room is also downstairs and has a large flatscreen Smart tv with Netflix and 100+ films on the Apple TV. There is a large two seater sofa and a smaller love seat, which is perfect for two. There is an under stairs cupboard for further storage.

Upstairs, there are 2.5 bedrooms in this beautiful little cottage. The main bedroom has a double bed and overlooks the church and down to Foss Street. There is a twin bedroom with full size single beds and a small bedroom on the top (second) floor with a single 2ft6 bed, which is perfect for children or fine for a small adult for a couple of nights.

There is one bathroom in the house on the first floor which is brand new and has a w/c, sink and small walk in shower. There is also an electric shower rail.

Please note, this is a 'chocolate box' tiny cottage which is full of English charm!

We have renovated this house to the highest standard and it is of a higher quality than most of the holiday cottages in the local area. It was a labour of love and we use this cottage as our own holiday home and enjoy luxuries. The house is fully modernised with all the latest gadgets, including Apple TV, smart tv, Alexa (Amazon echo), Roberts Radios, Nest thermostat for the gas central heating & Nest Smoke/Carbon Monoxide detectors on every floor.

The beds and mattresses are all excellent quality, from John Lewis. With the exception of the smallest bed on the top floor which had to be sourced carefully for the dimensions of the room. All bed linen is of the highest quality and white sheets and linen are Egyptian cotton with a high thread count (ranging between 200-1200!). All towels for showers are provided and are also of similar high quality (either Christy or Calvin Klein). We don’t provide beach towels and ask that our towels remain in the house.

Please note: WE DO NOT ACCEPT DOGS, this includes:
* One well behaved dog
* Two small well behaved dogs
* Any new little puppies that are crate trained
* An old dog
* A well behaved non malting cockapoo
* One little dog that you don’t allow on the furniture or upstairs
* A tiny dog
* A dog that doesn’t shed hair because it’s a doodle of some sort
* A dog that only has 3 legs

We do get asked a lot, the house is just not suitable for dogs. There are plenty of houses in Dartmouth that are.

We’re a family of 4. We live in Cheshire and like to travel in the UK and abroad- forever chasing the sunshine! Our children have been taught not to touch walls, climb on furniture or leave a mess so when we travel we are very mindful of looking after other people’s things! Oliver is a complete tech obsessed so we love a gadget.

We have two dogs, a Labrador and a sausage but we also have a very brilliant dog sitter so we mostly travel without them.

We own The Pink House in Dartmouth that’s let through Airbnb. When in Dartmouth, we enjoy eating freshly caught fish in restaurants and also catching our own, going crabbing and visiting the beach!
