Dartmouth is one of the most popular destinations in Devon.

Dartmouth is a exciting harbour town, steeped in history… A haven for walkers and nature lovers, surrounded by the Devon hills and beaches.

It offers a stunning waterfront, ancient narrow streets lined with boutique shops, restaurants and art galleries plus many local events such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, along with the Dartmouth Food Festival held every October.

There are many interesting cycling and walking routes around Dartmouth, including the South West Coast Path, the Dart Valley Trail and plenty of quiet country lanes.

Kingswear, the other side of the river is famous for its beautiful National Trust property, Coleton Fishacre, as well as its own magnificent castle.  Just a short drive and you can swim or try your hand at water sports on the Blue Flag beaches of Blackpool Sands. 

A trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway through picturesque countryside to Paignton is a must, and so is a boat trip across to Kingswear and on to Brixham, a pretty little harbour town.

For those seeking some beach activities, there is a wide choice in the South Hams area such as Blue Flag Award winner Blackpool Sands, and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular and just a stone's throw from Dartmouth.
