Holiday home Moonrakers is a light and spacious detached property, situated in an elevated position, enjoying views over Dartmouth town and across the River Dart. With three bedrooms (one en suite double, a further double and a twin), a family bathroom, and an additional separate cloakroom with w.c., the property sleeps six guests. Just a short five-minute walk from the centre of Dartmouth, and close to the nearby beaches of Start Bay, Moonrakers is an ideal property for a family, or perhaps several couples, keen to enjoy quick and easy access to Dartmouth itself and the surrounding area.
Region Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

Specification of facilities (use of swimming pool) had changed.. Although this was mentioned in small print on the website, it would have been helpful to have confirmed this detail to us when we booked. This was our fourth or fifth visit to the property.
Our complaint on this point was not dealt with well. I was advised it was 'all my fault as I had not read the small print'. Some empathy would have been helpful.
Much of the crockery in the property is looking tired now and replacement should be considered.
Why were there only three dishwasher tablets for a property of this size. Is money really that tight?
This was our sixth stay at Moonrakers so obviously we enjoy this property.. It is spacious, comfortable, well furnished and has excellent views over the River Dart and countryside. On sunny mornings the light streams in through the windows and it is lovely to sit on the verandah enjoying the views over to Kingswear. Even on a dull or rainy day one can enjoy watching boats, trains and even an occasional helicopter from the comfort of the sitting room or kitchen.
Potential guests do need to be aware that these views are due to the property's elevated position therefore there are 38 steps to climb to the main entrance. We always end the holiday fitter than at the beginning!
Parking for two small cars is invaluable though it is a slightly tricky reverse to get onto the street.
