WHAT TO DO
SHARPHAM WINE AND CHEESE
Sharpham Dr, Ashprington, Totnes TQ9 7UT
If cheese and wine are your thing, Sharpham is your kind of place. With international accolades by the glassful, they are a big name in the English wine game. In fact, you’d be forgiven for forgetting you were in England as you wander through 500 acres of serene vineyards. Don’t just take our word for it, book yourself onto a tasting tour to experience Dartmouth’s finest.
WHERE TO STAY
DART MARINA HOTEL
Sandquay Rd, Dartmouth TQ6 9PH
A room with a view. Enjoy a blissful breakfast on your balcony with unparalleled views of the bustling harbour. Binoculars are provided for bird (or people!) watching, as well as complimentary pashminas to encourage you to soak up the setting. The hotel also boasts a pool, steam room and (thankfully!) a hot tub, for those who can’t quite face a dip in the sea. Check yourself, without hesitation, into this waterside retreat.
WHERE TO EAT
5 South Embankment, Dartmouth TQ6 9BH
Fresh is certainly on the menu at Mitch Tonks’s esteemed seafood joint. Hailed as one of the best in Britain, they’ve maintained a welcoming yet opulent ambience whilst serving up the finest fish you could ask for. The Seahorse specialises in food cooked over an open charcoal fire, much of it sourced from nearby Brixham fish market. Pair with one of 180 wines, each expertly chosen to perfectly balance your meal. Don’t mind if we do.
WHAT NOT TO MISS
1 Foss St, Dartmouth TQ6 9DY
No trip to Dartmouth is complete without a trip to Roly’s Fudge Shop. Not much compares to good, old fashioned fudge, especially when it’s handmade right before your eyes. Carefully crafted using traditional methods, they have an unrivalled array of flavours. Strawberries and champagne anyone? With a prestigious reputation and countless awards to prove it, this is not to be missed. Bring your sweet tooth.
