Dartmouth Buzzes …
Even in the Winter Months

Sails | 30 November 2016 |

Dartmouth is a town that loves a good opportunity to celebrate. From its well-known food festivals and the grand Royal Regatta to the numerous arts and crafts markets and gallery open days, there are celebrations throughout the year for locals and tourists to enjoy. The Christmas period, of course, is no exception, and there is an exciting schedule of activities and events planned for the upcoming festive weeks. Whether you’re looking for buzzing Christmas markets, seasonal concerts ...

… or a chance to introduce younger family members to Father Christmas, Dartmouth is the perfect place to get everyone into a suitably festive mood.

A great way to spend the day in December is to visit the beautiful Greenway House, the holiday home of the much-loved author Agatha Christie. This place is charming at any time of year, but in the run up to Christmas the team at Greenway are bringing the Poirot story ‘The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding’ to life, with stockings to fill, mistletoe to hang and a Christmas tree to decorate.

At Pennywell Farm, children will be delighted to experience nativity plays with all the animals looking on, safe and dry in their winter homes. This is also the place to visit Father Christmas, who will be in residence here from the 1st December to the 24th.

Those who love getting out in the fresh air, even in colder months, can enjoy a beautiful coastal walk, starting at the historic Dartmouth Castle. Combine a castle visit with a trip on one of two local steam railways, bus or ferry and make it a special day out. With a range of wildlife to spot along the way, this is a perfect excuse for a family photo, especially when the stunning landscapes are covered in frost – or possibly even snow – a real winter wonderland!

Residents at Environ’s new apartments, SAILS, on Dartmouth Harbour, will be in a prime position to enjoy everything Dartmouth has to offer during the Christmas period. Residents will be only a short walk from the beautiful Dartmouth Castle, and can even take a ferry from the harbour to Greenway House.

The SAILS development is in the heart of the thriving seaside town, with views of the harbour, Coronation Park and Royal Naval College. With a modern design inspired by a traditional ocean-going clipper, the apartments provide stylish, spacious homes with great appeal for those relocating to Devon.
