Busy interesting harbour
Aug 2021 • Friends
I love this town and the busy harbour is a lovely place to sit and watch the various boats and people watch. On this visit we arrived at the harbour after a one and half hour cruise along the river Dart from Totnes.

Beautiful but busy (in a good way).

What a lovely town.
Steeped in history and lovely buildings.
Good shopping and food facilities, and the obvious harbour to sit in and watch the world go by. Will visit again.

Aug 2021 • Family
Great day out. Beautiful setting, plenty of photos taken. Definitely worth a visit. A variety of food available with outdoor seating to enjoy to scenery. Benches to rest on the walk around, so great for the entire family.

Awesome couple of days
Jul 2021 • Family
Our first visit, parking a major problem in the town, and the park and ride wasn't that big, wasn't as crowded as expected, everyone frendly and tried our hands at crabbing very much enjoyed I, including the walk around the area.

Will try a river cruise and the steam train later

The Boat Float / Dart Harbour
Jun 2021
Known locally ( and I am an ex resident) as the "Boat Float" this charming anchorage for small craft is quaint, safe but very subject to the tides. Effectively, it is a car park for yacht tenders, and small craft that enable yachtsmen/ women to reach their craft that are moored out in the river.
Generally the Quay at Dartmouth is regarded by visitors , and there are many thousands of them, as the Harbour. Both locations are worth investigating and the walk alongside the River Dart is rewarding as there is always some activity whether it is paddle steamers, kayaks, or the iconic Lower Ferry. The place to amble, and eat clotted cream ice creams in the sunshine..........

A Midlife Adventure

Busy working harbour but overcrowded with tourists midweek at end of June
Jun 2021
We came across on the lower Kingswear ferry by car and immediately we were met with throngs of visitors strolling along the streets which wasn't great when you are trying to get through the town to park.
Car parking is nigh on impossible and this was midweek at the end of June. There is a car park opposite Mn S but this was full. We were driving off to the park n ride but luckily managed to find a 2 hr spot alongside the waterfront. Every bench on the waterfront was occupied so we strolled along watching the various boats and ferries crossing the river.
On reaching the end of the pathway we explored the Bayard's Cove fort which used to be an active stronghold to protect the town from invasion.

We then strolled back through the shops. There are plenty of independent shops if this is your pastime. All the restaurants and cafes were heaving and takeaway chip shops had queues of 10+ people waiting. We just found the whole experience disappointing due to the sheer volume of visitors. It reminded us of some of the Greek Island capitals when the cruise ships come in!

Amazing Dartford!!
May 2021 • Couples
Just as nice as it was 9 months ago when we last visited. A perfect place for sitting on a bench and watching the various boats plying back and forth, whilst enjoying a coffee, or maybe a beer in one of the numerous riverside establishments. So colourful and great views across the river. Plenty of places to choose from for a bite to eat …. top tip, just walk a couple of hundred yards inland and the people disappear and the eating opportunities multiply enormously!

Quaint gem of a place to visit
Jun 2021 • Couples
This is a lovely place to visit if you are within the area. We used the Ferry to get across from Torquay. It was a bit pricey (£6.50 each way) but as a one off, quirky experience and for the convenience it was worth it. Parking was impossible near the harbour so we decided to use the park & ride. Even though it was a Thursday off peak - the car park was full when we arrived! The next door coach park was almost deserted- so maybe the council should consider using this as an overflow for cars? We hung around and thankfully got a space when the bus arrived & someone left. Would imagine that in peak season, you might not be so lucky. That said, the area is lovely - lots of unusual architecture, pretty gardens, historical aspects, the harbour and lots of places to sit and watch the world and all the boats/ferries go by! There are lots of different places to eat and drink - although a local crab sandwich is highly recommended! There are some lovely, unusual, bespoke shops to browse around. Really recommended a visit here.

Interesting place to sit and watch the world go by
May 2021
Plenty of good shops and eateries in the vicinity and there are steam trains across the estuary. Worth a walk along to Dartmouth Castle although the ferry back (£2.50) is a bit pricey considering its less than a mile
