On a cottage holiday, Dartmouth and Salcombe are well worth a visit.
A well-established yachting centre on the South Devon coast, Dartmouth is an attractive, colourful town with some interesting historic buildings and a lovely harbour area. The old market centre holds markets on Tuesdays and Saturdays and is otherwise a pleasing mix of high street stores and independent retailers selling local crafts and regional produce, and there are many excellent brasseries, pubs and restaurants catering for locals and the town’s many visitors, with some of these housed in buildings dating centuries back, in narrow, cobbled streets. Explore the narrow streets of Foss Hill, Browns Street and the Butterwalk, more than 300 years old. Dartmouth has a castle too, which is now under the protection of English Heritage and is a well-known visitor attraction.
