The historic town of Dartmouth sits at the estuary of the River Dart, arguably one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe. The Dart is navigable for about 10 miles up to the market town of Totnes, passing by unspoilt villages and countryside and the wine estate at Sharpham. The town dates back to the 1100s and today has a population of just over 5000. Many of the streets and houses date back to Elizabethan times and are a patchwork of narrow lanes and stone stairways. There are many ancient, listed buildings, including the Butter Walk and the Cherub Inn and the quayside of Baynards Cove which marks the spot from where the Pilgrim Fathers sailed in 1620. Dartmouth, today, is a vibrant place to live, with many good shops, including brnches of Boots, Marks & Spencers Food and a Sainsburys on the outskirts. Local produce, particularly seafood and dairy products, are abundant in specialist shops and delicatessens. Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsburys etc offer home deliveries. Dartmouth is a popular destination for visitors, many arriving by boat. There are a wide range of restaurants, ranging from fine dining to Mitch Tonks Seahorse, to a pukka French bakery and café. Two golf courses are close by, just outside Dartmouth and at Churleston. There is a sports centre and a new indoor swimming pool opens in 2016.
The Flavell Art Centre is open every day and provides an extensive programme of theatre, music and film and regular live links with the National Theatre, Royal Opera House, etc.
The centre is the home of numerous clubs, ranging from the NADFAS, Q3A, to bridge, pilates and dance. Dartmouth has 3 marinas and boat moorings are available from the harbour authority. Popular destinations are the Channel Islands, Scilly Islands and France, as well as the Devon and Cornish ports and, of course, the river itself. Blackpool Sands beach is 10 minutes away from the property and there is a magnificent coastal drive from the house to Kingsbridge. Walkers have the choice of the South West Coastal Path, just a few hundred yards from the house, with wonderful views along the coast, or can enjoy the very different scenery on Dartmoor. Totnes is about 11 miles away and is a popular shopping destination. There are regular inter-city trains to London, the Midlands and up to Scotland. The cathedral and university city of Exeter offers extensive shopping, including a John Lewis.
