The Floating Bridge

Really excellent pub food. We ate there every night as there was a good choice and it was very near our apartment.
Staff are lovely and very welcoming.

Poor food, high prices, not value for money

Very expensive for less than average pub food

Nearest beach

Historic Dartmouth castle overlooks this little cove at the mouth of the river Dart. The grassy picnic area above the cove makes a good place for a pitstop.

Nearest walk

Enjoy a two hour circular walk around this historic Naval town taking in local culture on the way. The route is level with a steep climb and there are plenty of restaurants, cafes and pubs en-route should you need a refreshment break.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Historically, Dartmouth was of strategic importance as a port used in the crusades of 1147 and 1190. Dominated by Britannia Royal Naval College, it has two fortified castles protecting the mouth of the River Dart. There are many historical buildings, a cobbled market place, shops, galleries, gourmet restaurants and delicatessens. National Trust Gardens, the South West Coast Path and clean beaches are nearby.

Dartmouth

We were staying in Brixham and decided to book tickets on the boat to Dartmouth .the boat crossing was fine , lasted about 80 mins. Dartmouth is a beautiful location with some great shops and eateries .well worth a visit!
We got the steam train back to Paignton which was a good experience and then the bus back to Brixham .Alternatively the drive to Dartmouth is short and you can get on the car ferry across the river

Dartmouth boat trip.

We loved Dartmouth. Use the park and ride bus down into the town, much easier than trying to park.
The one hour boat trip was very informative and we saw Seals.
Take the car ferry across the river and enjoy the scenery on the route back.

Agatha Christie's holiday home nestles on a crook of the River Dart in a beautiful woodland garden that is home to such horticultural treasures as Monterey pines, eucalyptus, China roses, myrtle and Turkey oaks. For a magical experience that's also kind to the environment, travel there by boat. 'Green ways' ferries leave from Dartmouth, Brixham and Torquay. Following a major restoration project, The National Trust has re-opened the house to the public, where quirky collections of memorabillia offer a glimpse into the private life of the well-loved crime writer. For house opening times and an events list, please visit the Web site.

Better than Eden project

Really wonderful visit to greenway ,( the day before we had been to Eden project that was so disappointing compared to Greenway) interesting visit round house, and the gardens are wonderful the trees and plants labelled so helpful, my sister and I went on the ferry from Dittisham only a little ferry but great fun and only five minutes across estuary recommend as you can only park at Greenway for Three hours and it is all so fascinating there we spent longer than three hours. Well done to all at Greenway.

The journey to the house by way of the National Trust ferry was enjoyable as was the walk back to Dartmouth along the Dart Valley Trail and ferry (higher or lower will do, the former is cheaper). Unfortunately the house itself was a little disappointing with an over cluttered interior that did not really tell any particular story. There were bits and pieces of interest but overall it seemed as though everything from different times and sources was put in that could be which detracted. The entry to the house is timed but we still felt that it was over-crowded and NT should consider making the house visits guided only. The walled gardens were good with a beautifully restored peach house providing a highlight.

Well worth a visit to this house, an effort to get there as you can't go by car unless you pre-book. It was a nice ride there in the boat but you would need good weather. Lovely spring flowers in the grounds. Cafe/restaurant disappointing as there were no main meal available.

Enjoyed by All

A lovely house in beautiful surroundings on the banks of the River Dart. Good to see the interiors haven't been messed around with and still look as if Agatha and her family have just popped out for a minute. I can see why she loved it so much and the gardens are a delight. Thoroughly enjoyed by all - including a 22 year old male! Well worth a visit but, if arriving by car, don't forget to pre-book a parking space.

A lovely boat ride from Dartmouth, but overall the house was disappointing. A hotch potch interior and hard to believe it was inhabited up until 2004. All furniture pre-dates the turn of the last century. The children did enjoy completing their quiz sheets 'can you find' and I can really recommend the pasties in the coffee takeaway shop (not the main cafe).

An inspirational place!

This beautiful house set in wonderful surrounding is well worth a visit. It is easy to see why Agatha Christie loved this place and penned a number of her novels here. The surrounding woodlands with views of the River Dart are superb. You can take a ferry from Dartmouth to get to Greenway but we chose to take the foot ferry from Dittisham (another charming little place). I would highly recommend a visit to this lovely area.

Visiting Greenway is a lovely way to spend the day, they also have occasional events so it is worth having a look before you go to see if any take your fancy. If you like gardens, I would recommend visiting Greenway as I thoroughly enjoyed it.

'The Loveliest Place in the World'

Agatha Christie was right to call this the 'loveliest place in the world'. Arriving by ferry is really the best way to see it. A stroll in the pretty woodland gardens followed by some delicious homemade food in the Barn Cafe, rounded off with the return trip on the ferry makes for a thoroughly enjoyable day out.

The Seahorse is the brainchild of award-winning restauranteur, food writer and chef Mitch Tonks. It specialises in the very best in local seafood cooked over a charcoal fire, and has an extensive, carefully selected wine list. Overlooking the Dart estuary, it serves great food in relaxed, comfortable surroundings. Pearlfisher, The Seahorse's courtesy launch, is available to take guests across the river.

Outstanding fish restaurant

We had two meals at The Seahorse, one in the evening and the second at lunchtime.
The welcome is warm and friendly and the food is excellent.
Tried other Dartmouth restaurants but this is best … by some margin!

A fine example of Arts and Crafts style architecture, with lovely Art Deco interiors. The gardens cling to the valley sides and feature a rare collection of exotic plants. An events listing is available on their Website for both the house and gardens.

We walked to this property from Dartmouth which was a lovely quiet stroll along empty Devon lanes rewarded by a fascinating house with interesting period pieces and historical commentary followed by beautiful gardens with plentiful spots to sit and enjoy all the different styles and views within. For those wanting a snack the tea-room provided a good choice of quality foods served in either courtyard or an airy cafe. The walk back to Dartmouth can be by the same route or take in the Daymark and WW2 relics and SW coastal path if you are feeling more energetic

Walking Bliss - if you're up for it!

We park near this property and rather than visit the house, take to the coastal path. You have a choice of directions, towards Brixham or Kingswear. It's not for flip-flops, buggies, small children or the infirm; you need good stout boots and ankle support but the walk and views are breathtaking. I wouldn't recommend it in very slippery weather, unless you stop when you get to the cliff, but if, like me, you enjoy feeling the weather in your face to feel alive then this is great. Hard core steep in parts.

Bantham Beach is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has numerous awards tucked under its sandy belt. Overlooking Bigbury Bay and Burgh Island, you can take the famous sea tractor and head to the island or sit and enjoy the views from the shore. A great surfing beach, the huge swathes of sand and sea allow plenty of space for everyone. Well-provisioned and life guarded in the summer, Bantham is a fantastic family-friendly beach.

Great beach with views across to Burgh Island

Lovely privately-owned, wide, sandy beach. Beautiful views across to Burgh Island, walking access is possible at times, depending on the tide. Good facilities, lots of parking (there is a daily charge, so check before going). We enjoyed a great pizza from one of the gastro-buses in the car park. There are picnic benches in the gastro-bus area, and hot, and cold drinks, and other food available.

Great family fun beach

Lovely beach with little coves to hide away in, rock pools and lovely clean sandcastle sand; wide enough for kite buggies, best surfing beach on the south coast along with Bigbury on Sea beach opposite. Burgh Island out to sea with its restored evocative 1930's hotel clinging to the edge was the inspiration for Enid Blyton's Kirrin Island as well as a number of Agatha Christie novels! Dogs allowed on the beach Oct- April and then along the far right hand side (west) during the remainder of the year. Beach balls and skimboards etc plus coffees and teas available from the post office cafe back in the village- great estuary view while sipping away on the deck out back. Lunch or supper in the Sloop pub- best to pre book in season

The best breakfasts. And brunches. And orange juice. And homemade marmalade. We can't recommend the food here enough. No bookings, just turn up early enough to get a seat and relax in the informal, slightly mad but utterly cool atmosphere. The food is so worth it.

The best

It's so laid back here, yet so efficient and well run.
You feel so welcome you could stay all day (well, til two when they close) but you'll want to try several things on the menu so keep one morning free at least to really experience this place. Pop in for a freshly squeeezed orange juice or coffee if you have to make a flying visit. Everything is cooked on view by the open kitchen and there's homemade preserves (a speciality) to buy. I couldn't find fault with this place other than I wish I had it all to myself (although the busy periods really add to the atmosphere!)
