But, the natural beauty of the area isn’t the only attraction of Dartmouth. There’s so much to see. There’s a stunning castle located on the banks of the River Dart with beautiful views of the estuary and the grand houses (and holiday cottages of course) climbing its steep sides. Wander round the town visiting the Dartmouth Museum to experience a wealth of heritage and culture.
Enjoy river trips to Dittisham on a graceful Edwardian paddle steamer or converted World War II Motor Torpedo boat (the torpedoes having long-since been removed). From Kingswear, travel by Great Western steam trains along the river, perhaps alighting to visit Greenway, Agatha Christie’s old house with its spectacular gardens and estuary views.
There are also a wonderful array of town walks and hikes to be explored with art galleries, chandlers, bookshops, boutiques, pubs and café stops along the way. Reward yourself at the end of the day with a scrumptious meal from any of Dartmouth’s critically acclaimed restaurants and bistros.
