Short getaways and weekend escapes to South Devon’s blossoming beauty spot. The best of Springtime breaks.

Walk up to Gallants Bower and see the amazing bluebells. Explore our cliff top walks and see the signs of summer arriving in the shape of wild flowers and the return of birds from far afield.

Glorious Summer Time in Dartmouth

Enjoy summer family getaways and school holidays in the beautiful coastal resort of Dartmouth.

There’s so much to do in Dartmouth during the summer, one stay is never enough. The beautiful River Dart is alive with all kinds of craft from cruise liners and yachts to family cruisers, kayaks and paddle board.

Hop across to Kingswear on the ferry, stroll the sunny South West Coast Path or let the local steam train take the strain. Soak up the sun outside a café, pub or bistro with a cappuccino or something cooler and stronger.

And there’s always something to celebrate in Dartmouth from Galleries Week, Shakespeare Week and the centrepiece Dartmouth Royal Regatta.

Golden Autumn Time in Dartmouth

Perfect weekend breaks or UK getaways. And the warmest Autumn welcome in beautiful South Devon.

Autumn in Dartmouth is always a beautiful time. Sail or cruise up the River Dart or take the Steam railway to see the vivid colours in the treescapes as nature takes its course. Wander down the pretty cobbled lanes where the independent shops and cafes cast dramatic shadows in the late afternoons.

When hunger strikes, there’s all kind of delights to sample at the annual Food Festival.

Magical Winter Time in Dartmouth

Make your Christmas shopping special by finding unique gifts amongst the huge variety of individual traders that are based in the town.

Come to our Candlelit Festival and see Father Christmas arrive (by boat of course) and watch him switch on the tree lights while sharing a few glasses of mulled wine.

To clear the cobwebs and Hogmanay hangovers, there’s nothing like a bracing walk along the river or South West Coast Path, following by a cappuccino in a cosy café or the warm South Devon welcome in Dartmouth’s gourmet restaurants and elegant bistros.
