Nearest beach

Goodrington Sands (250 yards)

Goodrington Sands’ award-winning beach has something for everyone. Take to the sea on a pedalo or water ski, or enjoy a more relaxed pace of life on a sun lounge in the sun. Tuck up in your own private beach hut with a book and bevvy, or take to the north section of the beach where you can take your dog all year round. Amenities and amusements are aplenty here.

Nearest walk

Stoke Gabriel Walks (3 miles)

The pretty village of Stoke Gabriel has lots of choice when it comes to walks. At low tide enjoy a leisurely stroll along the shoreline to Duncannon beach or maybe cross over to the woodland towards Dittisham. A Footpath can even take you to the bustling town of Totnes, a great walk for both you and your dog.

Nearest town

Paignton (1 ¼ miles)

Families have been flocking to Paignton for generations to enjoy a traditional English seaside resort. Much loved by the Victorians, the pleasures of Paignton have changed little – sand castle building, picnics on the beach and a dip in the sea. Paignton Zoo has a world-wide reputation for its conservational aims and offers an excellent day out for animal lovers; state-of-the-art enclosures afford the animals greater freedom to exhibit natural behaviour, which in turn makes for an exciting display for visitors.

Also nearby

Greenway (2 ¾ miles)

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.

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.

Dartmouth (4 ¾ miles)

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.

Steam Train and Cruise

We took the train from Paignton (awful town, but the start of the journey!) to Kingsweir. We then got the passenger ferry across to Dartmouth - very lovely town with lots of interesting shops and plenty of Cafes, Pubs and Restaurants to eat in. We then did an hour cruise up the River Dart which was really lovely and we then repeated the journey back (ferry and train). It was a really lovely day out. It can get quite busy during the peak times but very well organised and some lovely scenic coastal views on the Steam Train. Well worth the family ticket!

A very good day out

We have done the Round Robin trip twice now, in opposite directions. It's an excellent experience, and reasonable value, especially if purchased on a Jubilee ticket.

Don't waste time in Paignton, head for lunch in Totnes where there are lots of options, some by the river.

Do plan your timing, as tides can mean that boat trips back from Totnes can finish as early as 2pm.

There's a big car park right next to the station at Kingswear (about £4 a day) and you can use the ticket to cross over on the passenger ferry if you want to start with the boat trip.

Trains leave Kingsweir for Paignton hourly in summer. We recommend taking a day to do the ‘round robin’ …Ferry-Train-Bus-Cruise. Note the Cruise times vary depending on the state of the tide in Totnes.

Berry Head National Nature Reserve (3 ¼ miles)

A haven for rare and threatened species, Berry Head is home to one of the largest colonies of Guillemots on England's south coast. The Visitor Centre lets you watch them on CCTV and there are also many other migrant birds that come to the reserve.

The limestone peninsular, which forms the southern arm of Tor Bay, is home to two Napoleonic-era forts as well as gardens rich with wild flowers from May to August and caves that house horseshoe bats.

Top Spot

Napoleonic buildings, rare rock roses and orchids, plus a bird hide and cameras to record the very special Guillemots that nest on the cliffs. There is a new visitor centre opened in 2009, a cafe and parking. It has just received 1.8 million pounds of funding to make this a top place to visit.

Berry Head National Nature Reserve Walk (3 ¼ miles)

A gentle stroll of just over a mile and a half. The reserve offers visitors the chance to explore two Napoleonic war forts and see Britain's highest and smallest lighthouse. Follow the description attached from the South West Coast Path National Trail and enjoy. Care should be taken with dogs and children as there's some high cliffs.

We loved this walk from Brixham. It was suitable for elderly family and a toddler with a pushchair if you use the car park. Views are wonderful and there is also a lovely walk back to Brixham through the woods and the coastal path if you can manage the steps and terrain.
