Dartmouth from the air

Our neighbourhood centres on the coastal market town of Dartmouth and the village of Kingswear, which lies on the opposite bank of the River Dart.

The Kingswear side comprises a large rural area reaching into the outskirts of Brixham. The Dartmouth side of the neighbourhood consists principally of the town centre and residential areas on the hillsides overlooking the town.

Dartmouth Navel College

Dartmouth is also the home of the world renowned Britania Royal Naval College (Pictured below with link). HMS Britania was the first ship used to house young officers at the beginning of 1863, which was moored along with the hulk Hindostan by the riverside off the estate owned by Sir Walter Raleigh.

Dartmouth navel College

The present buildings at the college date from 1905 designed by Sir George Aston Webb, who also commissioned Admiralty Arch, London and the East front of Buckingham Palace.

The Marina

Dartmouth Marina

The maritime theme continues on the river with three popular marinas; Dart Marina, Darthaven Marina and Noss Marina, which draw mariners from around the world and the occasional luxury liner.

There is a good variety of businesses within the town, which cater for the fluctuating tourist population throughout the year.

The neighbourhood has a relatively low level of crime. I cannot say that it is crime free, but it is certainly one of the country’s safest areas to live in.
