The South Devon Steam Railway is not far and is located near Totnes where there are also two English Heritage Castles. A visit to Dartmouth and pretty Salcombe is recommended. John & Sue, June 2018
A good number of coastal walks within the area. Agatha Christie’s summer home at Greenways nearby – a steam train ride, walk or ferry trip from Dartmouth. Excellent area for dog walks. If you are a National Trust member lookout for NT car parks along the coastal paths. Mr & Mrs Rigney, May 2018
Coastal walks aplenty to choose including Dartmouth castle and Bolts’ head & tail. The Earthworks above Dartmouth castle afford stunning views of the beautiful River Dart and coastline and provide a natural setting for children’s exploratory play. The Jeanneret Family, March 2018
Park at Beesands and take the coastal path to Hallsands and along to Startpoint Lighthouse. Nice pub at Beesands The Cricket Inn. Welland Family, March 2018
