Lovely views

We thoroughly enjoyed our steamboat trip from the mouth of the river Dart up to Dittisham. Beautiful scenery and buildings along the river bank and seals swimming in the river.

The best thing to do on a short break in Dartmouth is to lose the car and walk Even better get a couple of ferries Go to Kingswear BUT also take the Dittisham ferry and have a beer at the FBI (the Ferry Boat Inn) The ferry is actually a small boat so make sure you book so as not... More

Went on a boat cruise up the river dart, so much character to this little place and so many lovely photos to be taken from the trip around the harbour with its many boats and beautiful different coloured buildings!

Hi there! Nestling just about 20mins from the city of Exeter, in a South Westerly direction off the A30, is a place waiting to be discovered by visitors to the South West. It's been there for billions of years, has folklore woven around it and the imaginations of hundreds of children young and old! People come from 'up North' to... More

We visited Dartmoor lots whilst on holiday last week. I noticed 2 of the 3 reviews left so far have nothing to do with Dartmoor. One is about Dartmouth on the coast and one about a restaurant??!! Best to ignore those. This review is for the river Dart and Dartmoor as per title. We drove across Dartmoor from one side... More

Stayed in a Blueriver property called Simples, it was perfect, right in the town close to all the restaurants and ferry crossings to Kingswear. Be aware the roads are steep and lots of stairs to the property but worth it when you get there, lots of things to see and do, boat trip, Agatha Christies house (get there early as... More

A group of us planned for a special event by going here. We were recommended food from the menu and chose to go with this. Very disappointed because the meat in the dish was very tough and portions small!
