The historic naval town of Dartmouth is just four miles away, where the cobbled streets are lined with small shops, artisan cafes, tasty bistros and tapas bars, with celebrity chefs serving local produce. Whilst in Dartmouth, Coleton Fishacre is also worth a visit - a fabulous historic house full of Art Deco furniture and set in stunning gardens and woodland. The Britannia Naval College offers a knowledgeable tour of Naval history, and the 14 century Dartmouth Castle, an impressive fort on the mouth of the River Dart and run by English Heritage is also worthy of a visit.
