Dartmouth is a town and civil parish in the English county of
Devon. It is a tourist destination set on the banks of the estuary
of the River Dart, which is a long narrow tidal ria that runs inland
as far as Totnes. It lies within the South Devon Area of Outstanding
Natural Beauty and South Hams District, and has a population of
Dartmouth was of strategic importance as a deep-water port for
sailing vessels. The port was used as the sailing point for the
Crusades of 1147 and 1190, and a creek close to Dartmouth Castle is
supposed by some to be named for the vast fleets which assembled
there (Warfleet Creek). It was a home of the Royal Navy from the
reign of Edward III and was twice surprised and sacked during the
Hundred Years' War, after which the mouth of the estuary was closed
every night with a great chain. The narrow mouth of the Dart is
protected by two fortified castles, Dartmouth Castle and Kingswear
Castle. Originally Dartmouth's only wharf was Bayard's Cove, a
relatively small but picturesque area protected by a fort at the
southern end of the town.

Mariners a self catering cottage benefits from parking directly
opposite the cottage. Guests have a private enclosed garden which
offers superb views over the Mill Pond and river Dart. This ancient
and unspoilt village still retains its ancient roots from the 800
year old yew tree in the churchyard to its gentle tangle of cottages
leading down to the river where locals have fished for Dart Salmon
for centuries. With its old Inns and the hubbub of daily life, it
still retains that quintessential English village atmosphere.
From the quay by the River Dart, where children can go crabbing,
there are gentle strolls to be taken along the riverbank or through
the old apple orchard and winding streets of the village where
unexpected glimpses abound. There is always something to see and do
in this lively community where everyone is made welcome.
