Holidays in Dartmouth

This pretty harbour town in the South Hams is adorned with Elizabethan architecture, narrow cobbled streets and winding alleys packed with boutiques and specialist shops. The town is presided over by a medieval fortress perched on the rocky outcrop at the narrow entrance to the Dart Estuary.

You can spend the day at the Castle by taking a stunning river boat across from the Quay. Dartmouth is packed full of wonderful places to eat, beautiful holiday cottages and attractions for the whole family.
