Planning an autumn/winter getaway? Read on…

Dartmouth is actually rather beautiful in the winter, and a perfect time to visit and explore the area. Located on the River Dart, and it’s pretty winding streets, there is always something to see and do.  The river is busy all year round, with super yachts, visiting cruise ships and pleasure craft, as well as the working boats such as the ferries or fishing boats.  With a rich maritime heritage, Dartmouth dates back as far as 1147, and over the centuries has managed to retain many of its original features.  Just wandering through the streets of Dartmouth you will see an eclectic mix of architecture amongst the buildings and streets, many dating back to the 16th century.  We have a castle, a naval college, a theatre and even a steam train service.  There is much to recommend this vibrant harbour town.

At Dartside holidays, we do have some availability in November through to the middle of December.  You will not beat our views and the minimum stay reduces to just 2 nights!  Our Angel 1 luxury apartment could be just what you are looking for: beautifully appointed and located right on the sea front.  This apartment sleeps 4 people, and 2 nights in mid-November start from £190 inclusive.  Or you might prefer one of our Riverside apartments.  Comfortable, amazing value, with beautiful views and a balcony – these start at just £130 for up to 5 guests.  Both come with a parking space too. So, an affordable break really is just a click away.


Think cosy pubs with open fires, breath-taking coastal walks (make sure you wrap up warm!) and interesting shops.  You can book a table in our award-winning restaurant The Angel – Taste of Devon for a special fine dining experience or try a relaxed lunch in our Champagne and Seafood restaurant Platform 1.  There are lots of other fabulous restaurants to try in Dartmouth, it is well known as a foodie destination, and you may have trouble fitting it all in!  But whatever you do plan early.  With foreign travel still very much in a volatile state, staycations are even more popular, and it would be wise to plan your meals out as well as your accommodation. If booking directly with us, we guarantee the best price, and we are always at the end of the phone to help with organising your stay.

So, head over to our website now to check availability and count down the days until you can watch the world go by from your prime Dartside position.

We hope to see you soon!
