Family Holidays in Dartmouth The pretty riverside town of Dartmouth sits on the western bank of the river Dart in Devon and makes a dream destination for family holidays in the south west. One of south Devon’s most popular and enchanting areas, the town is a pick n mix of pastel-hued cottages, charming historic streets and rural-meets-riverside scenery. Dartmouth’s nearby attractions include the sister towns of Totnes, Torquay, Brixham and Paignton which all offer fine days out. From the Bohemian boutiques of Totnes to Paignton zoo, complete with crocodile swamp, baboon rock and elephant house, visitors of all ages will be spoilt for choice when it comes to holiday entertainment.

Dartmouth’s Coastal Charm Home to Britain’s most prestigious naval college and one of the most beautifully located fortresses; the south Devon town of Dartmouth has been firmly put on the map for its maritime heritage and is awash with coastal beauty. The river Dart is a playground for watersports, whilst the picturesque harbour offers the best place to enjoy the sea views without getting wet. Catch the ferries to Torquay, Salcombe or Totnes, or visit historic sites such as Dartmouth castle to witness something that looks like it's straight from the pages of a fairy-tale. Perhaps most breath-taking are Dartmouth’s beaches, including Bantham, Thurlestone, Hope Cove and the sheltered golden cove of Blackpool Sands.
