Holiday rentals and lettings in Dartmouth

A quaint and colourful town

Dartmouth may be a small town of just 5,000 people, but it has plenty to keep even the most discerning tourist happy. The colourful quaint buildings give the town a cozy yet historical feel. Most lettings are apartments concentrated in the town centre, putting you footsteps away from the harbour and its lovely waterfront. There are also a wide range of traditional homes to let as well if you crave something that is truly English for your holiday accommodation.

Stay in a traditional English holiday rental

Set on a river estuary, the town boasts a number of beautiful holiday lettings for rent, some of which rise above the river and give sensational views over Dartmouth’s most British of landscapes. Expect accommodations that have been renovated yet which simply burst with character, replete with open stone fireplaces perfect for a comforting stay and great for the cool evenings.

The area and getting around

A picturesque town on a hill

Dartmouth is widely considered as an enchanting, storybook town because of its scenic river location, charming historic streets, and the surrounding deeply green and pleasant landscapes. The Dartmouth panorama makes it stand out from your typical English town. With a strategic location on a sloping hill, almost all of its buildings can be seen from the vantage points surrounding the town, making it a favourite for artists from all over the country.

Due to its location by the river Dart, the small town of Dartmouth is also a highly popular yachting centre and home to a large number of yachts, giving the town a modern feel in juxtaposition with its historical core. Dartmouth is also home to the boatbuilding, light engineering, and pottery industries, and you can catch a steam train here from the nearby towns, and ride on train carriages built a century ago!

Dartmouth for watersport enthusiasts

The River Dart is the perfect place to enjoy a cavalcade of watersports. It is ideal for kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding and surfing a little further out in the open sea. Sailors are in for a treat, with the typically great wind conditions, stunning scenery and interesting wildlife. You can rent canoes, kayaks, or paddleboards at several places in the town, or bring your own and launch them into the water. You can paddle up to nearby villages, stop in small coves, go for a swim, and of course stop for a drink in a local riverside pub! The choice is yours, and the memories will be yours forever.

There are all sorts of historical sites to explore here, from museums to castles, forts to historical houses, the town is quite simple a not to be missed for any history enthusiast. Just one example is the Dartmouth Castle, which is known as been located in one of the very most scenic locations for a defensive building in England. It was originally built in 1388 and its walls breathe history.

Dartmouth was where the current Queen of England first met Prince Philip, and it is precisely this chance encounter in 1939 that led to their blossoming romance.

Top 5 travel tips in Dartmouth

1. Check out the Dartmouth Naval College

Naval officers have been trained here since 1863, hence its strong harbour presence. The architect of this college, Aston Webb, is globally renowned for his work on the Buckingham Palace facade, so this college is a must-see for architect lovers.

2. Take a rest in Royal Avenue Gardens

This beautiful park was landscaped way back in 1887, and now boasts a variety of flowers from all over the world due to its mild climate, including a Japanese garden, Mediterranean garden, and New Zealand ferns.

3. Soak in the history at the Dartmouth museum

Dating as far back as 1640, this old merchant’s house simply oozes history. The building itself could be considered a museum piece, and of course, bearing in mind its location, its galleries have a strong maritime theme.

4. Take a stroll down Foss Street

Another precious piece of history, medieval Foss Street dates all the way back to the beginning of the 13th century. Now pedestrianised, it is the place in town to check out quaint little houses, shops, and galleries featuring interesting handmade items by local artists.

5. Visit Blackpool Sands

This is a rare beach in England in that it is private, but because of this, perfect cleanliness and excellent facilities are guaranteed. Just ten minutes’ walk from the town centre, this sheltered crescent-shaped bay boasts an alluring coarse sand beach surrounded by green cliffs. Kayaks and paddleboards can be hired here, and there is an excellent restaurant serving hot and cold food, and even a beach shop with some delightful souvenirs.
