Book Your Dartmouth Holiday Letting for a Fantastic Coastal Holiday
Dartmouth is a town in Devon situated beside the River Dart. This is a part of Devon, in south west England, that has some fantastic coastal scenery; and the River Dart is certainly one of the main highlights of Dartmouth. Those renting a holiday letting in Dartmouth can visit some intriguing historic sites, and make quick trips to the beaches, gardens and countryside of Torbay.
How to get to Dartmouth
Overseas travellers can arrive at Exeter International Airport, which is the closest airport to Dartmouth. It has flights from many European and UK destinations such as London and Edinburgh. Those who have booked a Dartmouth holiday letting can then take a train to Paignton, and from there take the steam railway line to Kingswear on the other side of the River Dart. Devon bus operators also have a Paignton to Kingswear route.
The Dartmouth climate
Dartmouth is a southern destination in England, and it has a similar climate to the rest of the West Country. So the best time to book Dartmouth holiday homes is probably for the summer, or at least late spring, which runs from June through to September. That is when average rainfall is at its lowest, and the highest average summer heat peaks at about 20 degrees Celsius. Beyond those months there is more rain and less sunshine, however the town still remains a delightful destination with its cosy pubs with open fires.
The top sights in Dartmouth
Visitors renting Dartmouth holiday lettings can visit some fascinating historic sites. For example, one of the most notable landmarks is Dartmouth Castle. This is an English Heritage site located just by the River Dart estuary. The castle provides travellers with terrific views of the River Dart and the surrounding coastline from its towers.
The Newcomen Engine Museum is one to note in Dartmouth. It displays Newcomen's engine, the first steam engine built, in all its full glory. If you're lucky you might even see the engine in operation.
The Dartmouth Steam Railway is another highlight for visitors to Dartmouth. The station is at Kingswear, across the river, and the steam railway line runs from there to Paignton. The steam locomotive runs through some spectacular countryside en route to Paignton. Note that this line also combines with river boat cruise operator tickets that run from Dartmouth up the River Dart to Totnes. It stops en route at Dittisham.
Excursion destinations in Devon

Blackpool Sands is Dartmouth's shingle beach, but if you take the steam railway to Paignton there are a wide variety of sandy beaches where you can soak up some sun along the coast of Torbay. Goodrington Sands is a good stretch of beach where you can hire paddle boats and pedalos. The Splashdown Quaywest Waterpark is also located in this vicinity. Note that regular boat trips run from the River Dart to Paignton and Torquay in Torbay during the summer.
Just down the line from Paignton is Torquay, the English Riviera, situated about 15km from Dartmouth, which has about 20 beaches linked with coastal footpaths. Torre Abbey Sands is perhaps the foremost beach, it also boasts some fine gardens at Torre Abbey. Babbacombe Beach is another excellent choice. Visitors can also visit the model village that is set within stunning landscaped gardens.
Another great destination just a quick jaunt from Dartmouth holiday lettings is Cockington Court in Torquay. This is a craft centre in a picturesque 460-acre country park. The country park includes woodlands, rose gardens and ornamental ponds.

Aside from the rowing and sailing events held during the regatta, there are also air shows from the Red Arrows and firework displays to round it off. Dartmouth Shakespeare Week, in July, and the November Candlelit Dartmouth Festival procession are a couple of other seasonal events in Dartmouth which are not to be missed.
