The Neighbourhood

Start Bay & Slapton Sands -Start Bay reaches from the Mew Stone at the mouth of the river Dart and encompasses the famous Blackpool Sands beach, Slapton Sands, Torcross and ends in the rocky cliffs that curve around the Start point lighthouse.

The coastal villages of Stoke Fleming and Strete are within a mile of the sheltered cove protecting Blackpool Sands. The lovely cove is flanked by wooded cliffs, the shingle beach having attractive facilities including the Venus café, windsurfing, canoeing and sailing hire. Blackpool Sands is one of the best beaches in Devon and extremely popular with families.

Slapton Sands extend for over 3 miles from Strete Gate to Torcross with the unique coast road set on the shingle ridge and having the freshwater Slapton Ley one side and the sea the other. The Ley has an abundance of flora and wild life being a designated National Nature Reserve.The Dart Valley -This unique Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is particularly popular with sailors, artists and fishermen and those who enjoy the peaceful tranquillity in a truly rural environment.

Delightful riverside villages such as Dittisham, Tuckenhay, Cornworthy, Stoke Gabriel and Ashprington whose unspoilt tree lined banks, secret creeks and countryside sweeping down to the river have been inspirational to many writers, ornithologists and photographers.

Watch the spectacle of the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta which takes place annually over three days at the end of August.

Take a cruise from Dartmouth to Totnes and make it a circular journey by taking the open top bus between Totnes and Paignton and returning on the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway.

Boat trips from Dartmouth take you up the river past Stoke Gabriel to the bohemian market town at Totnes. With its medieval winding streets, historic town walls and ancient castle Totnes makes for an interesting visit. The host of cafes restaurants and alternative independent shops are a delight to browse for a while.
