Memories to be Cherished from QuerQuay …

We found QuerQuay Bolthole through Sawdays, which never disappoints us. Out of all the properties we have stayed in, QuerQuay is now top of the list! We feel privileged to have stayed in part of this unique house. For us it has been the perfect place; comfortable and stylish accommodation, so thoughtfully and artistically presented. as well as a stunning location. 

Nothing can prepare you for the view across the river estuary to Dartmouth or the first time the steam train passes the window.

So many memories to be cherished. We have loved it all and cannot wait to return. 

Lynne & Dave, Cambridge


Great Location for Exploring the Devon Countryside and Watching the World go by.

“We’ve had a great week staying here at the Bolthole – it’s a great location for exploring the Devon countryside and watching the world go by. Also good fun seeing the train steam past during the day. Will definitely recommend to friends and family as a great place to escape to. For anyone staying we can recommend Bellini’s for cocktails, Taylors for dining and walking the coastal path to Coleton Fishacre.”

The Stanleys


QuerQuay Bolthole a Wonderful Place to Watch the World go by.

‘A wonderful place from which to watch the world go by. The apartment is beautifully finished and a very calm space in which to relax. The coming and going of the ferry and the passing of the steam train kept our 6 month old daughter entertained for hours. There is a walk up the estuary to Dittisham through lovely woods and it starts very much on the doorstep if you fancy a bit of exercise!


The Perry Family


QuerQuay Bolthole is the Perfect Escape and Views of Red Arrow Displays

‘We have had a wonderful time here, the Bolthole is the perfect escape. The views are just so special, to have breakfast in bed and watch the world go by on the river is a real treat.

Really love all the handmade touches and attention to detail in the house. It is very unique.

The Regatta was a bonus, so much to see around town, it was nice to have a quiet place to retreat to and enjoy the firework displays and Red Arrows from a distance.

Loved reading on the swing seat, glass of wine with the sun setting and watching the train. Thank you Both.’

Sue and Adrian


Sublime Setting Inside and Out

‘A sublime setting inside and out, we stayed at Querquay and experienced one of the most comfortable nights ever, in the Bolthole. To be able to sit and watch the activity on the river and have a glass of wine on the boardwalk watching the sun go down is an experience not to be missed. In such an enchanting place with its gorgeously dressed, extremely spacious accommodation with everything you need – the Bolthole is a little bit of heaven.’

Barbara & John • Kent


Stylish Decor and Furnishings Enhance Your Stay

‘We were lucky enough to be the first guests in QuerQuay Bolthole. I am in the accommodation industry where our corporate clients want (and pay) for the best. At QuerQuay as soon as you walk in there is a special feeling of calm and peace. The views are unbeatable and the ambience is incredible. The bed was extremely comfortable and we both slept very well. The decor and furnishings are so stylish that the whole experience is one of pure joy. If you want to stay in this beautiful part of England this apartment can only enhance the wonderful experience that this area has to offer.’

QQ Bolthole – A Place of Taste and Decor

‘The place and taste of decor almost got you Julia as a sitting tenant! Great spot, lots to do if you want to, nice not of course. Friendly ferrymen, Cocktails at Bellinis, and food at Kendricks or Bayards Cove (by the lower quay). Thanks and good luck … hope to come again.’

The Reilly family


Boardwalk Running Alongside the River is a Great Bonus

‘QuerQuay Bolthole exceeded all our expectations and offered so much more with every comfort. A bonus was the attractive boardwalk laid out with rustic style seating for watching life on the river. Plus the occasional steam train on it’s way to Kingswear. We were so sorry to leave and hope to be back soon and will certainly be passing on details of this unique venue on to all our friends in show business. Many thanks’

The Kirtland family


Stay at QQ Bolthole for River Views and Great Lunches

‘Lovely weekend at QQ, very relaxing and lots to see on the river. Great location for visiting our daughter at BRNC and lots of fun having the train go by whilst having lunch.
QuerQuay is very well equipped and very cosy. We will definitely be back soon, hopefully in warm weather so we can enjoy the swing seat.
Browns Restaurant in Victoria Road is excellent for food – recommend the Monk Fish Curry.’

The Thomas Family


Enjoy Panoramic Views from QuerQuay Bolthole

‘I wanted somewhere special for a long weekend birthday treat, maybe by the sea ….and found the Bolthole on Alistair Sawday’s site, Wonderful. Lovely walk along Dartmouth river front yesterday with panoramic views of this site all bathed in sunlight. Coast road drive to Salcombe recommended, past Blackpool Sands. Look out for ‘Southern Comfort’ guitar duo in the pubs in Brixham. 
For a few days this was home …’


Roy and Louise • West Midlands


Relax and Enjoy a Wonderful Location at QQ Bolthole

‘Had a lovely relaxing week at QuerQuay. The accommodation and location are just perfect. We shall definitely come again and have already recommended QQ to a couple we had lunch with at the Ferry Boat Inn in Dittisham! 
Can recommend Rockfish for fish and chips, Coleton Fishacre and Greenway to visit. Thanks and good luck for the future.’

QQ Bolthole – Witness Nature and art flowing seamlessly throughout the Bolthole

‘Having been brought up on a diet of Devon holidays and Enid Blyton adventures (it took a couple of days to notice the secret staircase) I knew that we were going to love QuerQuay as soon as we walked in.
Nature and art flow seamlessly throughout the cottage tumbling onto the veranda, along the wonderful boardwalk into the view beyond.
We never used the car from the moment we arrived as there is so much to do and see from the doorstep..
We enjoyed watching the sun go down over Old Mill Creek and we were treated to the sight of a seal floating on its back enjoying a fish supper.
A haven for kayakers being able to launch from the path right outside! JUST WONDERFUL’

Lisa & Iain • Cumbria


Experience a Car Free Holiday .. let Trains, Boats and Ferries Take The Strain

Everything you Desire is on your Doorstep

We have enjoyed a truly wonderful holiday and felt very lucky to have chosen the QQ Bolthole as our home for a week. We wouldn’t change anything!
Once you park up, everything you desire is on your doorstep and the river/rail activity is the best entertainment you’ll have during your stay. Thanks for a fabulous time.

WOW What a Holiday!

‘Sitting on the swinging chair with a glass of red wine, overlooking the River Dart as the sun is slowly sinking – WOW what a holiday the beautiful QuerQuay Bolthole has given us.
Great food at the Floating Bridge – just a ferry ride away, Dukes Deli and the Royal Castle Hotel.
Thrilling boat trip with Monty Halls – Great Escapes and Go karts just up the road.

Get your Relaxation from the sights and sounds of the river
‘There is advice that suggests you should not go back in life. So untrue in the case of QuerQuay Bolthole.
The familiar sights and sounds relaxed us immediately and we had another wonderful stay.’

Martin & Alison • Cotswolds


This beautiful haven has a lot of heart.
‘As soon as you draw up to QuerQuay you feel it’s magic begin to weave around you, and it’s but a short time before you find yourself enfolded in it’s embrace. It’s more than just a beautiful location, the endless flow of river activity and steam train, the wonderful boardwalk where you can sit and just ‘be’ in this place – it’s the many small and delicate touches that let you know your happiness and comfort is cared about. There is a lot of heart in this beautiful haven – we have to come back.’

Cherry & Ray • Somerset


Our Own Water Taxi on the Doorstep!

We had a really enjoyable and relaxing stay at QuerQuay with everything we needed in the apartment.  It is in a fantastic location and very central for all the wonderful things there are to see and do in the South Hams.  We found the ‘water taxi’ ferry on our doorstep to be very convenient, especially for nipping across to M&S or Saveurs for some treats or a bottle of wine!

The Greers • Dorset


Completely unique location and beautiful

Completely unique location and beautifully done cottage. Welcoming and comfortable accommodation, with lovely views to wake up to that makes it easy to do nothing.
We didn’t have to use our car at all, so a very different and relaxing break for us.
We’ve had a lovely time and would recommend QuerQuay BoltHole to anyone.

Perfect Honeymoon Destination

A perfect honeymoon destination for us. The relaxed cottage has felt like home from home with its hobbit mixed with pirates-hideaway feel. Just loved catching the ferry over to Dartmouth to enjoy a drink and a meal, then popping back to enjoy a cosy evening. Loved every minute. We will return.

Prettiest Devon Villages on your Doorstep

So happy to have found this little slice of paradise for our ‘mini moon’. The cottage is perfect for relaxing and even on wet rainy days it feels snug and cosy. Who needs the Indian Ocean when you have the prettiest of Devonshire villages on your doorstep. Will most certainly be back to celebrate our future anniversaries.

Surround Yourself in a Visual Delight

Thank you so much for our stay at the Bolthole. It saved us from staying on our wet and windy boat. We have had three wonderfully relaxing and comfortable days. You have created something truly beautiful and unique here on the banks of the Dart. A visual delight. We love it !

The Laces • Ormskirk


Enjoy great Highlights when you stay at QuerQuay Bolthole

‘We’ve had the most wonderfully relaxing week, with unseasonably good weather. The Bolthole and Boardwalk are just beautiful. Highlights have been an amazingly close encounter with a grey seal and a kingfisher while kayaking on the river, trips out to Blackpool Sands and Start Point, joining the locals in a pub quiz (Tuesday) at The Ship Inn in Kingswear. We don’t want to leave. Massive thanks.’

Kate & Matthew • Lancashire


Stunning, Calm, Beautiful Spot

Enjoy a Wonderfully Relaxing Stay

I’m so happy to have stumbled upon such a wonderfully relaxing place to stay. Like many guests before me, I don’t want to leave. I’m torn between telling friends about the Bolthole or keeping it to myself. Either way I will definitely be back and hopefully for longer. Thank you for creating such a beautiful space.

Opening the Shutters to the View • Like Opening a Present

Arrived in the dark for a birthday treat. Waking up to the view was like opening a present …. we looked out of the window over still water to the town on the other side. Stunning. We’ll be back.

Loved Every Minute

‘Where to start? We have found a new home. We loved every minute of our time at QuerQuay Bolthole. The views fantastic. The ferry has become a real feature sometimes wondering at very high tide if it was coming right up to our front door. We have waved at every steam train like 10 year olds, enjoyed the food, the pubs, the trips out, the shops, and the car never left the drive. A brilliant week. The touches around the Bolthole are very special,- flowers, art, handmade details. 

‘Tips for places to go: The Cherub is fantastic, 1600’s pub, fireplace and real ale, Steam Train to Greenway to Agatha Christies house and gardens – well worth it, boat trip up the Dart. We will be back to our second home in Dartmouth thank you.

Nick & Tracy • London


A Wonderful Hideaway

‘What a wonderful place to pass a few dark winter days. We arrived smack bang in the middle of a prolonged period of wet and windy weather and can’t think of anywhere better to hide away.
The Bolthole is wonderfully equipped. The coffee machine just what we needed in the morning.
Lawrence & Kerstin • London


‘Everything About this Spot is Wonderful’

‘We wanted a lovely quiet, cosy spot by the river to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we couldn’t have picked better. I’m almost tempted not to tell anyone how special this place is for fear it will be booked up when we want to come back ! Everything about this spot is wonderful – especially watching the storm whilst tucked up inside.’

Paul & Laura • Somerset


QuerQuay Bolthole for a Cosy and Warm Spring Break

‘This is the second time we have stayed at The Bolthole and i am already feeling sad that it is time to go. It is so cosy and warm and we are surrounded by such beautiful things …. we can’t wait till the next time.’

Sue & Roland • Somerset


‘The Perfect ‘Switch Off’ in such a Beautiful Place’

‘A wonderfully peaceful and relaxing week @ QQ Bolthole. We quickly settled into a daily routine: leisurely lie-ins and slow breakfasts watching the morning ferry; a stroll through Hoodown Woods to Kingswear and back along the river; fantastic lunches in town (we recommend in particular The Seahorse, Taylor’s and Rock Fish); tea and cake at ‘home’ on the boardwalk in glorious sunshine (waving excitedly like children to our new friends the steam train drivers); an evening tucked up on the sofa with a DVD and a bottle of wine; and an early night in the amazingly comfortable bed for a solid 10 hour sleep! And then doing it all again the next day! …. Mmmm … the perfect switch off in such a beautiful place – thank you.’

Sara & Tony • Hebden Bridge

Steam Train

QQ Bolthole is a Lovely Place to Watch the River Life Passing By

‘The Bolthole is a lovely place to watch all the river life going by. The sun shines on Querquay till sunset, and watching the ferries, steam train go by is a lovely novelty.
The house is beautifully furnished and has a really comfortable bed. Thanks for a lovely stay.’

Lynne & George • Derbyshire


Refreshed after a Stay at QuerQuay Bolthole

The Spring sunshine arrived with us and continued to shine. A real added bonus after all the rain. We have loved the views and watching life on the river. We’ve walked/ferried everywhere.

The walk to Greenway was every ‘puff’ to be greeted with a magnificent show of magnolias made our day. On the ferry back we saw a seal – another treat.

Thank you for this ‘quirky’ place. We go home relaxed and refreshed.

Great Walks from QuerQuay

‘Great weekend in a lovely cottage. Lots of great walks. Can recommend the walk to Dittisham and a pub lunch at the Ferry Boat Inn. The only downside is that we’re not here for longer:( ‘

QuerQuay Bolthole is the Place to be for Driftwood Finds

We feel so lucky to have discovered such a unique, warm and welcoming place, in a wonderful setting & with such attention to detail. The ferries,trains and river traffic have all added to the experience and we didn’t use the car at all which is unheard of! We leave feeling relaxed, refreshed & inspired to create with our driftwood finds …. thank you so much.

Robin & Sue • N. Devon


QuerQuay Bolthole – a place to create happy memories

We have had a wonderful nine days here. We have enjoyed the house and it’s style very much – lovely, aesthetic and very comfortable too. Loved the boardwalk and swing seat, just watching the river, the hills and the play of the light. A wonderful holiday – thank you. One highlight – a trip down memory lane on the Kingswear Castle, remembering childhood trips on the white funnel fleet (to Woverley) in the Bristol Channel. And seeing Sir Nigel Gresley close up pulling its special up the incline out of Kingswear past the Bolthole – is a memory to treasure.

Jane & Andrew • Kidlington, Oxfordshire


Stay at QuerQuay Bolthole for a Wonderful Haven

Our second visit to the Bolthole and we are smitten. Who would believe a ferry arriving on your doorstep every 10 minutes, a steam train chugging past several times a day and boats galore, could provide such a wonderful haven – and its all brought together by a very loving touch and a sure hand. We couldn’t recommend QuerQuay more highly it’s our idea of heaven.

Recommend walking past Dartmouth Castle and on to Sugary cove – driftwood and waves, eating at Rockfish (Embankment) and Anzac’s (Anzac Street) and coffee at WoodRoast (Smith Street)

Cherry and Ray • Devizes, Wiltshire


A Perfect Holiday @ QuerQuay Bolthole

What a wonderful two weeks we have spent here at QuerQuay Bolthole. Cottage perfect, and evenings spent on the Boardwalk (with the occasional G&T) watching the world go by – Lovely.

The Perfect Holiday – Thank you

Lorna & Steve • Derbyshire


So Much on the Doorstep – no car needed

What a beautiful location. Thoroughly enjoyed taking the little ferry to Dittisham, yummy cake and coffee at the Anchorstone, another ferry over to Greenway and then ferry back to Dartmouth.

Coletone fishacre is definitely worth a visit. Spectacular garden and interesting house.

Enjoyed meals at The Floating bridge and the Ship Inn in Kingswear village.

Chris & Steve • Chelsfield


QuerQuay Bolthole – a Holiday Place that Ticks All The Boxes

The Bolthole ticks all the boxes – wonderful accommodation in beautiful surrounds, with lots to do on your doorstep whether by foot, steam train or ferry. Purchasing the Jubilee Pass on Day 1 is well worth it! Plenty of good restaurants and pubs in Dartmouth – we loved Anzac’s Bistro and James the guitarist who plays on Weds/Saturdays. Although an evening on the Boardwalk with the sun shining can’t be beat. We hope to visit again soon.

QuerQuay Bolthole in Spring – A Lovely Cosy Retreat For Our Mini-moon

We arrived at QuerQuay in the dark with the rain and wind. What a lovely cosy retreat the Bolthole is to escape a night like this! The accommodation is so comfortable and has everything we need for our stay.
We came to the Bolthole on our mini-moon having been married the Saturday before and were very touched that the owners had left a congratulations card and a bottle of champagne for us. This wonderful place is full of personal touches like this which makes it a really special ‘home’ for a few days.
We have been watching the ferry coming in and the steam train coming along the valley from the boardwalk. We also really enjoyed our walk from the Bolthole to Froward Point along the SW coastal path. We have loved our stay here. Thank you.

@QuerQuay Bolthole – Highlight Being at the Bolthole 🙂

We’ve had a lovely holiday in the true sense of the word. There’s so much to do and see – we’ve walked, cycled and kayaked.

Our favourite day was the walk to to Greenway with lunch at the Anchorstone Cafe. However the undoubted highlight has to be the Bolthole itself. Hope to return soon. Thank you.

Lorna, Rick & Finlay • Peebles, Scotland


QuerQuay Bolthole FOR Accomodation, Location and Totnes 🙂

An excellent location and wonderful accommodation. We love the boardwalk where you can watch the world go by. Also everything is near, so no need to use the car. If you are vegetarian, Totnes is a must for a choice of lunch – wine and food. A very enjoyable week. Thank you.

Visit QuerQuay Bolthole for a perfect, calming week

We have had a perfect week with fabulous views, great grub, boat trips, coast walks and lounging on the boardwalk. If there was a barometer to measure calm, comparing how we were on arrival to how we are now, would be an interesting exercise …. we are probably off the scale. 

An unforgettable week in a really comfortable home. Many Thanks. XX

Full Steam Ahead When You Stay @ QuerQuay Bolthole

We have had another perfect stay at the QuerQuay Bolthole. The sun has shone every day for ten days the trains have been extra special,  Vince even got to go on the footplate experience. We’ve seen a seal from the boardwalk, a kingfisher or two. and egrits too many to mention. We have enjoyed the good food locally, too many cream teas and delicious ice creams. 

Julie and Vince • Rutland


QuerQuay Bolthole for Uniqueness

Such a unique place to stay! So much to watch from the boardwalk … it’s been difficult to drag ourselves away 🙂 Amazing fishmongers in Dartmouth. Loved The Ship Inn in Kingswear. And made full use of all the ferries. The walk to Greenway was spectacular too.

A wonderful part of the world and a wonderful place to experience it from.

Thank you x

QuerQuay Bolthole for ‘Winding Down’

What a week! It’s normal to enter a property with a mixture of excitement and trepidation but from first sight we knew that this would be a special place and it did nothing to disappoint. Imaginatively laid out with care but never sacrificing comfort for aesthetics.

It’s proximity to the river and ferry made for ‘full days’ and the much needed ‘wind downs’ … and where better but QuerQuay Bolthole.

Jan and Brian • Solihull


Escape to QuerQuay Bolthole for Highlights and Atmosphere

QuerQuay Bolthole has lived up to it’s name this week. It has been a warm and cosy base with all mod cons, including wifi, a great selection of DVD’s, efficient shower, bottle openers and wine glasses all we need to escape temporarily from a hectic life.

The well positioned dining table, basket-chaired sheltered arbour and airy boardwalk, have enabled us to view and photograph river life and the trains whatever the weather.

The complimentary ferry ticket was wonderful, thank you – as we popped back and forth to the other side. M&S food is just across the river.

We’ve enjoyed scallops at the Floating Bridge and excellent fish and chips at the Wheelhouse.

A real highlight only available in autumn was the river trip to Totnes returning on the 18.30 pm boat as dusk turned to night. A fantastic atmospheric journey.

Its been a wonderful stay.

Stay @ QuerQuay for a ‘Hobbit’ Experience

Have always loved reading Tolkeins books but never thought I would ever experience being a real live grown up, living in my very own hobbit house.

Querquay is an adventure. an idyll and an amazing experience. It even has it’s own ‘Hogwarts Express’ passing within inches of the front door.

Stay @QuerQuay Bolthole to Become Cocooned in Luxury and Design

Perfectly positioned to enjoy Dartmouth and the local area without using the car. We had a lot of fun getting around on ferries and boats. Beautiful walks on the doorstep too, visiting Coleton Fishacre by foot is a must if weather allows!                                                                                                         We have had a brilliant holiday staying at QuerQuay Bolthole – felt as though we really escaped from hustle bustle and constant traffic in the SE. Beautifully designed, cocooned in luxury, we had everything we needed. Rarely does a holiday make us feel that we are still enjoying our surroundings even when we choose to stay in.

Come to Dartmouth for a Friendly Welcome

We have enjoyed a friendly welcome wherever we went and loved the authenticity of Dartmouth (so many independent shops – YEAH!) Enjoyed the banter of the jolly ferrymen. Had a great walk to Greenway (lots of things close after 2 November) and a great experience @ The Anchorstone.

QuerQuay Bolthole – Couldn’t ask for a better place to stay anywhere – perfect!

We’ve had a fabulous week escaping from the big city. Watching life on the river provides endless entertainment – you don’t need the TV! I’ve spent much of the week fascinated by Dartmouth’s role in the build up to D-Day. Seeing pictures of the loading of US troops on the ferry slipway was very evocative. If you want to know more there are plenty of deeds and people at the museum are lovely.

Foodwise you have to visit The Seahorse – one of the best restaurants in the UK – you won’t have better fish anywhere and Spice Bazaar was a real find – superb Indian food – it’s a little bit hidden but well worth it.

Couldn’t ask for a better place to stay anywhere – perfect! We hope to come back soon.
