4.     Dartmouth Art Weekend  a success!

More art than you could throw a stick at?   If a picture speaks a thousand words, here are 12,000.


5.      Murder Mystery Cruise on the River Dart :  the autopsy

Many said this was the best evening they had in the last 12 months, and they were right, we all got deeply into the story.  There is another one soon, click here for details.  Here are some of the photos we took on the boat that evening (thanks to Canon for their credit card sized Ixus).


6.    Film Society tonight shows  'Volver'

With its overwhelming richness, its colour and warmth, Pedro Almodóvar's movie, VOLVER is set to capture your heart. 

Volver, (in English, Coming Home or Coming Back), is a gripping melodrama. Penélope Cruz is Raimunda, a hard-working woman with a teenage daughter, Paula, and a feckless, layabout husband. With her sister Sole she tends to the graves of her parents, and visits her ailing Aunt Paula, who is in the final stages of dementia. Raimunda's family life shatters with one terrible act of violence, and there is a secret about her late mother that surfaces when Irene returns from beyond the grave to make contact with her astonished daughters.
Guest tickets available from The Windjammer £3.50 7.30-7.55
Our bar at The Guildhall is open from 7.30. The film will be shown at 8pm approx.

7.    Gardens open for charity

Dartmouth's Rowcroft Hospice shop is holding an Open Gardens Day this  Saturday, 30th June in Townstal Pathfields (close to St Clement's Church)  to raise funds for the charity. Two Pathfields gardens will be open from 12  noon to 4.00pm with a third on standby! On offer will be cream teas, a fundraising raffle and other attractions. Shop manager Lyn Guiney said "We held a similar event last year and it was very popular; it's something a bit  different and Pathfields is within easy reach of the town so we hope lots of  people will come along." Just in case the recent rainy weather continues,  the charity has even provisionally booked St Clement's Church Hall so the event can carry on regardless!!   Tickets £4.00 to include a cream tea.

Why not come down this weekend, the sun is hot, the beer is cold and the Piemonte is chilled, as are we!  For self catering click here,  for B&B click here,  for Hotels click here For a Tourist Guide to Dartmouth click here.


8.   Are you a B&B in Dartmouth?

If you put ' Dartmouth B and B ' into Google, we are the first UK entry regardless of selecting 'the web' or just 'pages from the UK'  We would not claim to be number one on every search, but that is our aim!

Our website is one of the most popular in South Devon.  Our newsletter is read by 2,000 subscribers and many, many more directly on the web, last week 286 people went directly from this newsletter to the Royal Castle web site,   But more remarkably this month 62,786 people went to the B&B page and 48,773 went to the self catering page.

Obviously we cannot do this for free, it's not fair on us, so at the end of next month everyone will still get their free listing (providing your website links to us), but without the photographs.  We will be making a small service charge of just £40 a year for the photographs, less than anyone else, and for arguably the best web site in Dartmouth?  If you leave it to the last day we will have a big backlog, so may we suggest you put your B&B on the paid up list soon!  Check out this link soon click here.
