at The Great Hall in the Dartington Hall Estate.
Starting as Baldock and Benns,
as they are now known have a vibrant office in
Dartmouth run by Bob Benns himself. At first glance you
might be mistaken into believing this is a small town
architects' practice, but it's definitely not. BBH can do everything
from applying for planning permission to change a window, to
designing projects the size of a small town.

Venus gets Taste of the West Award
is the news that the environmentally friendly, Venus
Company’s 3 Devon Cafes are 3 of only 4 Tea Room/Cafés in
Devon to win the coveted 2006 Taste of the West Food and
Drink Gold Award in the hospitality and retail class. “As a
beacon café and take away, it would be hard to better the
Venus Café concept” was the Devon judging verdict.
The Venus Company uses over 30 local producers from Devon
and Cornwall, and serves local and organic produce to over
500,000 customers a year. The Taste of the West Food and
Drink Awards recognise the finest in food, drink,
hospitality and are highly respected throughout the
industry. The Awards are indicators of the very best food
and drink available in the region. Blackpool Sands
shown here is home to Venus Cafe and is only a 10 minute
drive from Dartmouth.

established is Dartmouth dot TV?
Very established indeed is the
answer. Dartmouth dot TV news is a highly respected news
service and is read Worldwide.
We only report good news. We only report
news with colour
pictures. We tell your potential
customers how cool Dartmouth really is, and believe us it
really is! The TIC, the Chamber of Trade, the Town
Council, and the MCTi all agree that we need
sustainable quality tourism. Can your business send
out advertising every week? No! that would be spam.
But news? Yes of course you can! And a reminder of how
great Dartmouth is, will bring more people into Dartmouth
for winter breaks more often. So we all need to pull
together and make Dartmouth News
to everyone who loves Dartmouth. It's time to wake up
and smell the coffee. It's time for us to all work
together. It's time to put personalities and
competition to one side. It's time for every potential
tourist to get Dartmouth news every week. It's time
for all of us to work together as one Dartmouth.
