Make a holiday home in Dartmouth your home away from home

Situated at the mouth of the River Dart, Dartmouth is a popular holiday town with lots to offer holidaymakers. It has a wide range of attractions and points of interest, and is also very near to Dartmoor National Park, several notable beaches, and the English Riviera. Dartmouth is the kind of place that appeals to everyone: couples; families; groups. Regardless of the season, there is always a lot going on.

HomeAway has a number of great holiday homes in Dartmouth available for rent. Some are located right in town, within walking distance of a number of attractions. Others are situated in a more secluded area and are perfect for a romantic retreat. One-bedroom apartments start at under £150 per week, with larger luxury rentals priced at up to £800 per week. In addition to being fully furnished, Dartmouth cottages often come with great amenities, like easy access to tennis courts, golf courses, and swimming pools.

Things to do

-Watersports: Near the coast and the River Dart, Dartmouth is a great destination for watersports. Bigbury on Sea and Blackpool Sands, both located nearby, have excellent watersport centres where visitors can try their hand at windsurfing, stand-up paddleboarding, and sea kayaking. Canoeing on the River Dart is also possible, as are sailing lessons and a multitude of different boating trips directly from Dartmouth. For days simply lazing on a gorgeous beach, HomeAway offers holiday homes in Brixham, Torquay and Paignton, across the River Dart in Torbay.

-Family activities: Woodlands Family Theme Park is not far from many holiday homes in Dartmouth and offers a whole day of family fun through a series of rides, play areas, and interactive attractions. Paignton Zoo isn’t very far from town either, and offers five different habitats housing animals from all over the world. Another great animal attraction that children will love is Living Coasts at Torquay. The award-winning coastal zoo features all sorts of marine life and is as educational as it is entertaining.

-Food and drink: Foodies can visit the weekly Dartmouth farmers’ market, held year-round. Excellent local cuisine and locally produced wine can be sampled at Sharpham Vineyard, which sits in an enviable location overlooking the River Dart. One of the specialities of South Devon is crab, which can be had in a number of restaurants and pubs in central Dartmouth. For fine dining, it’s hard to go wrong with River Restaurant, which holds an AA Rosette. Casual takeaways are also prevalent in Dartmouth. Try RockFish Seafood & Chips for the best fruits of the ocean.

-Historic sites: Visitors staying in a holiday cottage in Dartmouth can take a guided tour of the Britannia Royal Naval College, which just marked its 150th anniversary. Berry Pomeroy Castle is a favourite with visitors in Totnes holiday homes but is close enough to Dartmouth for an interesting trip. The castle is said to be one of England’s most haunted places. History buffs also won’t want to miss the opportunity to take a ride on the Pilgrim, a Brixham Sailing Trawler dating back to 1895.

We enjoyed a quality week away as an extended family; the house afforded both privacy and sufficient space for all. Lovely strolls and walks are easily accessable, as is the town of Dartmouth itself. Would have no hesitation in staying again or recommending to others

With views over the river of boats and wildlife. The kitchen was well designed to cater for large parties. The beds were extremely comfortable and high spec showers ment that 5 people could wash at the same time and not compromise on hot water! I would recommend this house to large parties and families. It offers a tranquil environment to stay, with a good seafood cafe, friendly pub and water sports on your doorstep.

Our group took advantage of the local amenities taking the small ferry from Dittisham to Dartmouth (and back) to shop and lunch, such a relaxing way to travel. The following day we visited Agatha Christie's Greenway, lovely house and grounds, popping in to the Ferry Boat Inn, Dittisham on our way back! The terrain can be quite challenging for walking and the lanes very narrow re driving but well worth the effort. We found a small public car park in Dittisham but you will have to walk down and more importantly back up if you wish to take the ferry. Greenway is the same but the National Trust run a shuttle to and from the house and ferry if you are unable to make the walk. We were a group of eight ladies who meet annually for a long weekend and we all voted this property in the top three we have visited over the years and will definitely return in the future. A lovely weekend had by all.
