While you stay at 18 Southtown, why not visit Dartmouth Castle, a 14th century fortress overlooking the entrance to the Dart estuary.
It has a 15th century gun tower, the first purpose-built coastal artillery fort in Briton.
It is a stunning piece of architecture which has stood guard over the harbour protecting the town from invaders for over 600 years.
A large iron chain used to stretch across the entrance to the harbour from here to Gommerock Castle on the Kingswear side to prevent any invaders sailing up the river.
In 1620 the Pilgrim Fathers set sail from nearby Bayards Cove.
Dartmouth also played a part in the civil war and remains of fortifications from this period can still be seen at Gallants Bower above the castle.
About the location
Totnes 12 miles.
Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon. It offers a stunning waterfront, ancient narrow streets lined with boutique shops, restaurants and art galleries plus many local events such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta. There are many interesting cycling and walking routes around Dartmouth, including the South West Coast Path, the Dart Valley Trail and plenty of quiet country lanes. A trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway through picturesque countryside to Paignton is a must, and so is a boat trip across to Kingswear and on to Brixham, a pretty little harbour town. For those seeking some beach activities, there is a wide choice in the South Hams area such as Blackpool Sands and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular sandy beaches are a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.
