The Area

Coast/Beach

Within walking distance of Above Bayards lies Sugary Cove.
Located through a woodland walk leading from Dartmouth Castle, this little cove offers adventure for those who enjoy scrambling over boulders and venturing in for a dip.
Blackpool Sands is approx 3 mile drive from town and has safe cordoned area for bathers, toilet facilities, cafe and car park. As a privately owned beach there is a fee for parking.

Golf

Lying 4 miles west of Dartmouth, Dartmouth Golf & Country club is a championship course established in 1992 set in 225 acres of stunning scenery. A course which apparently offers an exciting challenge with its undulating landscape.

Villages

Dartmouth is surrounded by many wonderful little villages, further afield is Totnes, thirteen miles by road, but can be reached by River boat trips. Kingsbridge is approx fifteen miles away another pretty town with a tidal estuary.

Agatha Christie’s famous Greenway home, owned by the National trust, lies up the River Dart towards Dittisham, reached by small ferry boat ride or from the Kingswear side of the river it’s a short drive, but car parking must be booked in advance.
