The West Country region
Dartmouth is located in the area known as The South Hams, Devon and enjoys a temperate climate due to the near proximity of The Gulf Stream. Steeped in maritime history such as Bayards Cove where the Pilgrim Fathers embarked upon the Mayflower on their journey to the New World in 1620.
Dartmouth has been a fishing port for centuries and an important Royal Naval base since the Elizabethan times when explorers such as Raleigh, Drake, Hawley, Davis and Gilbert opened up the trade routes and remains to this day a bustling port with commercial and leisure vessels of all shapes and sizes coming and going.
With Dartmoor to the North and the sparkling coastline in the South to explore, and all the towns and villages to visit, its no wonder that visitors return to Dartmouth time and time again
In Dartmouth town you will find wonderful restaurants to dine in and sample the local food including the catch of the day or enjoy the atmospere of the local inns.
Shopping along the narrow streets of Dartmouth is a joy and all this is at the mouth of the picturesque River Dart with it's historic past. Take ferry trips to ancient Totnes or around the bay.
The town holds festivals almost every month of the year including the popular Royal Regatta at the end of August and the famous Red Arrows display.
Dartmouth is surrounded by beautiful countryside which offers stunning walks along the South West coastal paths that take you through woods and farms, past beaches and coves. Or just relax along the Dartmouth embankment and watch the boats go by with an ice cream.

"What a view!"
We stayed in the top apartment of this barn in August 2012 (regatta week) and were not disappointed. This place certainly has the wow factor. Longbow Barns is a spacious luxury accommodation with fantastic views over Dartmouth & beyond.
We met Ray & Jan while we were there and they were very friendly and more than helpful regarding places to visit & eat and drink!
The barns are located close to Dartmouth & it is easy to walk into the town from here.
We will certainly be visiting again. Many thanks

We enjoyed our stay at Longbow Barns, the upstairs barn in which stayed had great picture window views of Dartmouth Estuary to the country side and beyond. The barn has been tastefully decorated and furnished to a very high standard. We would highly recommend Longbow Barn.
