Dartmouth is a fascinating town, situated on the River Dart in the South Hams, and a lovely place to spend the day. It is a bit of a parking nightmare though. Make sure you park up at the top of the hill, and catch the bus down into Dartmouth.
It is always busy, and probably best avoided during the summer holidays. The cobbled narrow streets house some fascinating shops and fine restaurants. We enjoyed a delicious fish meal, in a quite innocuous spot, with our special friends, Steve and Wendy, over from Australia.
Once you arrive in the actual town, you feel a close proximity to the sea. As you walk along the streets, you are within arms reach of the overhanging medieval houses and old quays. We found a lovely old pub where you could take your drinks outside and sit on the actual quay, sipping away whilst watching the boats on the water. We enjoyed a lovely hour chatting over old times whilst looking out on the beautiful blue seas. A memory that will stay for ever with us.
There are some interesting galleries and antique shops to while away a couple of hours. Dartmouth is a special place, and one you really must visit.
