1.   Messing about on the river

Did you know for the price of a family meal out, you can hire a boat and explore the river for a lazy afternoon?  The river is renowned for its beauty and is very safe and accessible.  A self drive boat is simple and easy, no licence or qualifications needed and with a 7mph speed limit it's a real pleasure.  After you get past Dittisham you will find the river almost empty.

You can beach in many locations, lie in the sun and sip chilled Chardonnay and crunch on cucumber sandwiches, or simply get a packed lunch from M&S!!  If you are staying a week you really owe it to yourself to be part of the river, or just come down for the weekend, visit our unique shops on Saturday and take to the river on Sunday?  If you want to find out more about boating and other activities click here.

Why not come down for the weekend?   The sun is hot, the beer is warm, and the lager ice cold!  For self catering click here,  for B&B click here,  for Hotels click here For a Tourist Guide to Dartmouth click here.

2.    Christmas in Dartmouth

Crisp morning walks, specialised shops, roaring fires, 14 bars, world class restaurants, what are you waiting for?  The Royal Castle have just released their Christmas brochure, click here if you don't believe us!

3.    Science fiction in Dartmouth?

Amid rumours of the remake of the 1952 classic film "They Came To Earth" and "Batman Episode One" (the prequel), two strange objects appeared in Dartmouth last week.  Jules Verne was unavailable for comment!


4.    Regatta is coming!

And how!  Fireworks on Thursday, Red Arrows on Friday and more fireworks on Saturday.  There is still accommodation available so book now?  The official website is here and Dartmouth dot TV's  picture based 'unofficial' site here.

5.     Kingswear Regatta

If ever there was a quintessential waterside village fête, this was it!  This laid back event was so cool it was nearly frozen solid.  Classic cars, bacon butties, rowing, and a prize for 'the dog with the waggiest tail';  does live get any better?  Be there next year?

6.    Dart Marina award
