A cosy, quiet cottage in the woodland just behind Dartmouth Castle with glorious views of the river Dart, perfect for a peaceful, relaxing break.
In spring and summer the cliff paths are ablaze with colourful wild flowers. If you follow the coast path towards Dartmouth you’ll find the remains of a Royalist encampment and panoramic views over Dartmouth.
Livestock may be grazing in these areas, please keep dogs on a lead. If animals become curious and approach:
- Stay calm and do not run.
- Avoid getting between cows and calves.
- If walking with a dog let go of its lead and meet up with your dog further along the path.
- If animals are blocking the path, whistle, talk or clap which lets them know you are there and encourages them to move. If they are still blocking the way then it may be best to avoid passing them and find an alternative route.
