Situated just across the estuary from Dartmouth, Kingswear is a delightful village, worthy of exploration. If you fancy setting up base there, the Kaywana Hall is a hot favourite.

Walls filled with art, en-suites with fluffy robes; this place is a blissful oasis of calm.
Situated in the heart of Dartmouth, this stunning 17th century building is traditionally styled, inside and out.

Located an easy 15-minute drive north of Dartmouth in the sleepy village of Dittisham, Fingal's B&B is a family friendly bolthole. To create a home from home, the owners have provided a fully stocked library and pool table for entertainment, as well as cosy corners to soak up the charm and rustic pleasures of this 17th century home. Although there isn't a restaurant on site, the owners are more than happy to recommend restaurants and local takeaways to enjoy during your stay.
Situated in the heart of Dartmouth's town centre, Browns Hotel is a small, yet perfectly formed hotel offering three grades of rooms to suit all budgets. Some rooms are dog friendly, meaning you don't have to leave your four-legged friend behind to enjoy a stay in the town centre. Browns is home to a popular bar and restaurant offering a delicious tapas menu and regular events.
Recently modernised, the Seven Stars is the oldest pub in Dartmouth, as well as a boutique accommodation option, offering six well-appointed en-suite rooms, some with exposed beams and all with a personal touch. Downstairs in the traditional pub and more modern first floor restaurant, fresh local food is prepared daily and beers and ciders from local breweries are championed. This is a great place to experience the welcoming and friendly nature of South Devon in the centre of delightful Dartmouth.
Located a 25-minute drive north east of Dartmouth towards Paignton, this camp site offers over 100 pitches, all on a spectacular, gently sloping piece of land overlooking the River Dart.
