Millmans Holiday Cottages Devon, Village Road, Marldon, Devon, TQ3 1SJ +44 (0)1803 558213


One of the best ways to view the town is from the deck of a pleasure boat as it plies it way up and down the estuary, Kingswear on one side, Dartmouth - dominated by the Britannia Royal Naval College - on the other.

 Narrow streets wind their way from the banks of the deep sheltered harbour; bistros, pubs, restaurants and the most fascinating of shops hide around every corner. Visit Bayard's Cove, of "Onedin Line" fame, Woodland Leisure Park Museum and the Castle. Two ferries operate all year round from Dartmouth to Kingswear, making easy access to Torbay. 

Markets: Tuesday - small general, Friday - main general.
