How to get there
Approaching Dartmouth by ferry across the River Dart.
Leave the M5 at junction 31 (A30/A38) and proceed onto the A38. Two miles later having just passed the Kennford Services take the left-hand lanes at the approach to the junction with the A380 (signposted Torquay) and then ascend. Ten and half miles later as you approach 'The Penn Inn' at the junction with the A382, stay on the A380 by taking the second exit at the roundabout. Over the next two miles you will pass 'The Sloop' and 'Hare and Hounds' public houses. A further half a mile on at the junction with the A3022, again keep on the A380 by taking the second exit at the roundabout (signposted Brixham). Over the next three miles you will approach three more roundabouts at Gallows Gate, Preston Down and Churscombe Cross. At each of these roundabouts take the second exit and continue along the A380 until you reach the junction with the A385/A3022 just under two miles later where you will proceed at the traffic signals onto the A3022. Just over two miles later at the junction with the A379 turn right at the traffic lights and carry along the A3022 for almost a mile and then turn right at the junction of the A379 (N) onto the A379 (signposted Dartmouth via Ferry). Two miles later at the junction with the B3205 keep right (signposted Dartmouth and Kingsbridge via Ferry) over the level crossing to the Higher Ferry over the River Dart. (Or in short, follow the signs for Torquay and then for Dartmouth).

Leave the M5 at junction 31 (A30/A38) and proceed onto the A38. Two miles later having just passed the Kennford Services take the right-hand lanes at the approach to the Junction with the A380 to keep forward and ascend. Continue on the A38 for the next sixteen and a half miles until you reach the Dart Bridge junction with the A384/B3380. At this junction (signposted Totnes) branch left and then turn immediate left again at the T-junction onto the A384. Continue along the A384 for just over four miles until you reach Dartington and then turn left at the mini-roundabout onto the A385 (signposted Paignton). On approaching Redworth just over a mile later take a turning right at the traffic signals onto the A381 (signposted Dartmouth). For the next six miles you will pass through Harbertonford and Halwell before turning left at Totnes Cross onto the A3122 (signposted Dartmouth). Carry on along the A3122 for a further six miles and on approaching the outskirts of Dartmouth follow the signs for the town centre. (Or in short, leave the A38 on the slip road signposted Dartmouth, keep following signs).
