Fantastic selection of high quality cottages from 2 bed to larger homes available for short periods and set in beautiful surroundings. Lots for the children to do and the level of service offered by the owners is outstanding. Dartmouth is such a pretty area and there are so many things to do. I'd go back like a shot!Read moreLess

Hillfield is a group of individually designed properties in a lovely, peaceful setting in the South Devon countryside. It's 3 miles from Dartmouth, which is a very charismatic little town, and a short drive from the beach at Blackpool Sands. We went in the February half-term, and my boys were very taken with the tennis court and play area; in summer - with lots of other families staying - this would definitely be the kind of place you could just open the door and let the kids roam free (there's also an outdoor swimming pool). We stayed in one of the Court Cottages, which was very comfortable and had impressive eco-design credentials (including a reed-bed sewerage system - well, I found it exciting) and a whirlpool bath, which the kids were overjoyed by.
There's lots to do nearby; we took a boat trip up the beautiful River Dart, had posh fish and chips at the Rockfish in Dartmouth (brilliantly child-friendly), visited Living Coasts at Torquay (sociable penguins) and had a scoot around the Riverford Organics farm, which is a couple of miles from Hillfield.
I'd heartily recommend this to anyone wanting a child-friendly holiday in peaceful surroundings.Read moreLess
