Places to explore nearby

Just some of the nearby places you can explore on our doorstep...


Dartmouth has numerous events on during the year including the annual regatta (late August) music festival (early May) and throughout most of the year river cruises, fishing and boat hire are readily available. A favourite full day trip is the “Round Robin” steamer to Totnes, bus to Paignton and steam train back to Kingswear/Dartmouth.


The site lies in the beautiful South Hams area of Devon, which is renowned for walks with the South West coastal path readily accessible for strolls or more strenuous walking. There are many wonderful beaches including the nearby Blackpool Sands and our favourites at Bantham, Bigbury and Salcombe within 30 - 40 minutes drive.

Stately homes


A visit to the National Trust property at Greenway to see the lovely gardens and house, which was Agatha Christie’s summer home is highly recommended. This can be reached by ferry from Dittisham or Dartmouth or less conveniently by car (book with the NT well in advance).

Coleton Fishacre

The National Trust property at Coleton Fishacre (near Kingswear - take the lower ferry) was built by the D’Oyle-Carte family and the house and gardens are an absolute delight.

Just 10 minutes away is the Woodlands Leisure Park, which was given the Devon Family attraction of the year and Best UK traditional family outing awards. The park has indoor and outdoor attractions so whatever the weather there is always something to do with entertainment for all the family.
