Hints and Tips on Cottage Holidays in Dartmouth


Enjoy strolling along Dartmouth’s narrow streets on a cottage break and discover a variety of independent shops, boutique shops, cafes, restaurants and galleries.  Equally enjoyable is time down by the river, just taking it easy.  Boat trips, fishing and sailing are popular activities on offer in this part of Devon. 

There is no shortage of things to see and do in this part of the West Country and there should be something to suit all tastes.   Top family attractions in the area include Totnes Rare Breeds Farm, Pennywell Farm and Woodlands Family Theme Park.  Those with an avid interest in history can choose from the National Trust’s Greenway, where Agatha Christie lived, Coleton Fishacre House & Gardens, Dartmouth Castle or the Golden Hind Museum Ship at Brixham.  For those who want to take in the scenery at a relaxed pace then there is a steam train which runs along the English Riviera Geopark coastline from nearby Paignton.   

Keen walkers should enjoy walking around town or join the South West Coast Path for footpaths along the coastline. 

Dartmouth has its own Tourist Information Centre, we strongly recommend that you visit for free information and leaflets on what this town and the local area have to offer.  You may just find that the staff are experts on local attractions.

Whether you opt for a cottage holiday in Dartmouth itself or a rural retreat stay in the nearby countryside, we hope you have the best of times.

Book a Dartmouth cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Devon on holiday.
