What a lovely, picturesque part of my most favourite place in the world. Well-kept stopping place in fabulous surroundings. The river is beautiful and the tea rooms are delightful. Plenty of parking and room to walk.

I love a visit to Dartmouth. It always makes me think of fairies for some reason. It is quiet and secluded, surrounded by greenery. I love a walk around the big stones listening to the gushing water. Simply beautiful.

This is a really nice little place, well off the beaten track. Of course that means driving down country roads, often feeling like you're in the middle of nowhere. Once you arrive of course there will be others around when the weather isn't terrible. Dartmeet...More

We had a very pleasant short stroll along the river bank watching the water tumble through the boulders. The water is very clear. Advisable to choose when you visit as the car park and surrounding area can be heaving with visitors.
