Royal Castle, Dartmouth
Located in the heart of Dartmouth, the Royal Castle enjoys a landmark location with enviable views over the water. Where the river meets the sea, Dartmouth offers the perfect balance for all manner of days out, with the waterside providing a little respite while the town remains buzzes with life, even outside of peak summer.
Discover one of England’s most beautiful fortresses, having guarded the Dart estuary for over 600 years. There’s plenty to do inside the castle, and if the weather stays in your favour, why not take to the river on a boat trip and make a day of it?
If you’re keen to do a little more exploring of the surrounding area, try the Dartmouth Steam Railway, running between Torquay and Totnes. Grab your seat and soak up the views as either the coal-fired paddle steamer or one of the vintage steam engines gently chugs to your chosen destination.
Dating back to the 17th century, the Royal Castle is the ideal hideaway to cosy up in the winter with hotel-style rooms and a stylish restaurant/bar. Enjoy a winter break in Dartmouth, exploring the great outdoors before retreating to the comfort of our pub.

Just five miles from Salcombe, Hope Cove could be the hidden gem you’ve been searching for. And, while the beach may be the focus in this little slice of South Devon, that doesn’t mean it’s not a top pick for the colder months. With its gin-clear waters, and soft, golden sands backed by rugged cliffs, the picture-perfect fishing village is a stunning spot year-round. Wrap up warm before taking to the coastal path, with a variety of routes to suit all abilities – from a quick stomp to South Milton Sands to a day-long hike towards Salcombe.

Perched on the waterfront, the Rock Point Inn serves as a fantastic base for your stay – whether it’s a romantic retreat, winter family getaway to reset, or a solo stay with your four-legged friend.
It’s hard to paint a more tranquil picture than Lyme Regis.
