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.

The location was perfect, being a hop and a skip to either of the passenger ferry or lower ferry, with good walks either up the river or along the headland. The heritage railway terminus is right underneath the front windows and the occasional steam train provided additional atmosphere to an already picturesque setting. We celebrated New Year's Eve watching the firework display over the Dart, and spent the next day reading in the upper loft in the dimming evening light. It could not have been more Hygge. The flat itself was great, with the only observation being that one of the bunk beds is a bit tight on length for our teenagers.

It is stocked with everything you could wish for, we even cooked a full roast on New Year's Day!! Everything is clean and tidy, was lovely and warm with the new boiler doing its job... really enjoyed it here! Sharon was brilliant throughout too... Great communications, made it easy and pleasant from the moment we started emailing. Thank you again, we will definitely be back 👍👍
