3.   Winter in Dartmouth

A few people mentioned that last week we featured photographs of Dartmouth in the summer, and they asked me to pass on how great Dartmouth is in the winter too.  Apart from the roaring real fires in the real pubs selling real beer, and the real local food and really nice atmosphere, it is a time to see Dartmouth as you may not have seen it before.  The picture on the left was taken only last Sunday on a walk to the Castle and the right hand one today, just four days later, yes that is a ball of rain heading straight for us.

How about coming down for the weekend, you know you want to!   For Self Catering click here,  for B&B click here,  for Hotels click here For a Tourist Guide to Dartmouth click here.

5.   Trade talk

We still need every business that is on Dartmouth dot TV to have a link from their own website to ours.  The deadline is the end of February, please don't say we didn't let you know in time!

You would be amazed at how many B&B's e-mails bounce, if it was a holidaymaker's enquiry, you would have lost the booking.  Please empty your mail box and check it every day?

And guys, do you want Dartmouth & Dawlish to be marketed as one, please let us know your views.
