Dartmouth is a fascinating maritime town, perfect for your holiday home, nestled on the edge of the picturesque River Dart in South Devon. Dartmouth is surrounded by quaint villages, unspoilt beaches, all weather local attractions and miles of beautiful countryside. Take the ferry across the water to the pretty town of Kingswear, head to Slapton and visit the shingle beach and unique fresh water lake ‘Slapton Ley’ -popular with bird watchers – or take a boat trip up the River Dart to the village of Dittisham for a spot of lunch, admiring the beautiful scenery and wildlife along the way!
Dartmouth itself is home to many award winning restaurants, sites of historical interest and lovely cobbled streets lined with boutique shops, art galleries and cafes, such as Cafe Alf Resco. Head to Dartmouth Castle or Agatha Christie’s former residence for an exciting afternoon, or journey to the nearby Blue Flag awarded Blackpool Sands beach, popular with water sports enthusiasts.
