Just left after a one night stay. Pity I can't stay longer but I suppose I can always come back and probably will. The welcome and service were fantastic. Breakfast was nice and the room spacious and clean. Thanks!

I haven't done a B&B review before and have reminded myself that many are unique properties and often very old. Townstal Farmhouse is 16th century which became a B&B 40 years ago and is located at the top of the town adjacent to the top gates of the Naval College. Our room was warm and the bed comfortable and there...

Many thanks for your comments Pity you didnt ask about a down stair room which might have been better for you We do provide extra large towels if needed Unfortunately The 16th century building has such thick walls that the wifi in Dartmouth and surrounding area from time to time is slow...We are updating regularly Sorry not much we could...

Just had 3 days at Townstal as we were visiting friends. It is situated above the town centre, no more than 15 minutes walk even allowing for a couple of wrong turns. The walk up is tough going! but it burns off a few of those breakfast calories. The room wad a good size, with a large and comfortable bed....

We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms,comfortable. The cooked breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The location of Townstal Farmhouse is ideal for using the car/passenger ferry and also for the shops, and there is a bus that stops very close by.

Warm greeting followed by a chilled beer from the bar ... perfect at the end of a long working day. Townstall Farm is now a B&B, having reduced in size recently. The location is perfect, about 15 mins walk into Dartmouth itself. Yes, the hill is steep (especially on the walk back up it), but there are buses and taxis...

Dartmouth is a vibrant town on the bank of the River Dart. It's full of great pubs, eateries and has many places of interest. The Townstal Farmhouse is not in that area though. It is located on a steep hill overlooking Dartmouth. It took me 20 minutes to walk down to the riverside and a fair bit longer to walk...

I am a regular booker of single rooms which are sometimes regarded as an unwanted necessity; not here! My room had all the comfort I required with all necessities and a huge shower. Breakfast had variety, was plentiful and was freshly cooked. The proprietors and staff were friendly and helpful and made you feel that you had been there before...
