The area’s natural beauty isn’t the only attraction of Dartmouth. There’s so much to see. There’s a stunning castle at the mouth of the Dart with beautiful views of the estuary and the grand houses (and holiday cottages, of course) climbing its steep sides. Wander around the vibrant town centre with a wealth of independent shops visiting the Dartmouth Museum to experience a wealth of heritage and culture.

Enjoy boat trips upriver to Dittisham on a graceful Edwardian paddle steamer or a converted World War II Motor Torpedo boat (the torpedoes have been removed). From Kingswear, travel by historic 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 an incredible 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 delicious meal from any of Dartmouth’s critically acclaimed restaurants and bistros.
