Lower and Upper Gullsway Boathouse-Terms and Conditions.

Points to note before you book

  • Gullsway is one of the most idyllic locations to be found anywhere in the UK. However, please be aware that the property is accessed by a flight of over 90 uneven steps down to the lower waterside apartment. These steps may be slippery at times and you use them at your own risk.
  • You should assess whether the property is suitable for persons with disabilities or young children.
  • As the property is beside the River Dart tidal estuary, care should be taken and children must be supervised at all times.
  • Please note that direct access to the water will be restricted by 'wave-boards' during the winter months, October to March.
  • As is the case in many parts of Dartmouth, parking is restricted particularly during the summer months and once you have unloaded your luggage you will likely need to park in one of the town's car parks.
