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.

Rosehill Ref: HSST

Rosehill is a well-loved holiday home which would suit a family or group of friends and makes a great choice whether looking for a summer destination or a cosy winter hideaway. This lovely country cottage is a spacious detached period property, set in an elevated position in the quaint little picturesque seaside village of Slapton which is dotted with pretty thatched cottages, and just a short walk away from the well known and much favoured beach at Slapton Sands. There is no other place like Slapton Sands - a wide stretch of beach and a fresh water lagoon divided by the coastal road that runs from Kingsbridge to Dartmouth, the beach itself is a beautiful pebbly beach that stretches for almost 2 miles along the South Devon coastline. It is a firm favourite with families and tourists and has a well-documented history, being the rehearsal area for the D-Day landings. A Sherman tank now sits alongside the beach as a memorial. The wildlife in the area is abundant with the fresh water lagoon located right next to the beach road. Today, Slapton Sands is a beach where families and friends can enjoy great holidays. South Devon’s Mediterranean-style climate means that the sea is calm and there are plenty of water sports such as surfing, windsurfing and canoeing to try out. The beach is patrolled by lifeguards during the summer months and there is a flag system in place advising holidaymakers where it’s safe to swim and when to stay out of the water. Many visitors come to observe wildlife in the nature reserve. Throughout the year the plants and animals living in the freshwater lake, Slapton Ley, vary according to the seasons. The whole stretch of this particular piece of coastline has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a great destination at any time of the year. Shop 20 yards, pub 40 yards, restaurant 2 miles.

The Boathouse Ref: HHG

Built over the site of the original boathouse, on a bend in the River Dart, it commands fascinating and panoramic views up river towards the town and Naval College and down to the open sea. The Boat House is fashioned similar to a luxury liner, with the ‘cabins’ fully panelled in light sycamore, making it a perfect holiday home for lovers of all things nautical. The saloon features a huge bay window which overhangs the river taking full advantage of the views. The ancient port of Dartmouth enjoys a charming mix of old buildings, including the 17th-century Butterwalk (with museum), a splendid castle (English Heritage) set on the rocks at the river entrance, and regular ferries across to Kingswear. The river throngs with pleasure craft and yachts, and offers good sailing and cruises to Totnes, taking in the beautiful scenery of the wooded valley. Charming Totnes has a wealth of ancient buildings, good shopping for antiques, crafts and gifts, and an Elizabethan Tuesday market. From Dartmouth the steam railway runs along the coast to the lively seaside resort of Paignton. Local places of interest include Greenaway (home of Agatha Christie), Coleton Fishacre (NT), Bowden House, the Butterfly Farm near Buckfastleigh, and Paignton Zoo. Along the coast are some splendid beaches, including Blackpool Sands, and excellent walks on the South West Coast Path.
