Famed for its Royal Naval Academy and 600 year old castle, Dartmouth has become synonymous with all things nautical, enticing members of the boating fraternity to this stunning slice of the River Dart for decades. Peppered with boutiquey shops and good restaurants, the town bustles with activity; its narrow, winding streets lined with historical buildings and gorgeous homes.
Just a ferry hop across the river takes visitors to the picturesque village of Kingswear on the opposite river bank, with Torbay, its beaches and attractions, within easy reach. In the opposite direction through the town, lies a stunning stretch of coastline that meanders past tiny villages and beautiful beaches. Grab a bite to eat at the iconic Venus Cafe on Blackpool Sands beach or stop off for a cream tea at Stokeley Farm shop in Torcross, before heading to the town of Kinsgbridge and on to Salcombe.
