Find cottages in DartmouthVisit Dartmouth

The historic town of Dartmouth has a rich naval tradition and is located in a picturesque bay on the banks of the River Dart.

The town has strong connections with the Royal Navy and is famous as the location of Dartmouth Naval College. It's also been the place where in times past plundering pirates would set out to plunder and the Pilgrim Fathers set out for America.

This characterful town has winding narrow streets, quirky shops, art galleries and delicatessens. By the quayside you'll be able to watch the brightly coloured boats come and go. Visitors are able to board the ferries that ply the River Dart or climb aboard the Dartmouth Steam Railway.

From your holiday cottage enjoy the beautiful surrounding coast and countryside including Blackpool Sands, a stretch of well-maintained shingle beach offering safe swimming and ample parking. Further along the coast you'll find Slapton Sands, where a tank stands as a stark reminder of the military history of this place and the ill-fated D-Day training operations during WWII. Now it offers a scenic haven, with a lake and nature reserve behind the beach. You could also pay a visit to Agatha Christie's holiday home, which she called the 'loveliest place in the world'; Greenway is now a National Trust property with beautiful river views, woodland and walled flower gardens.
