Buy property in Dartmouth for unique coastal town living

Dartmouth is a town that grew up around its ancient trading harbour, where sailors have docked and set sail for more than 1,000 years.

Residents and those looking for property for sale in Dartmouth, Devon, will find evidence of this historic culture throughout the harbour and the city itself, from the cobbled Bayards Cove to the colourful farmers market and art galleries.

Those with a penchant for historic architecture will no doubt be enthralled by the half-timbered Elizabethan houses found across the city, lucky buyers may even be able to find one of these ancient properties for sale in Dartmouth too.

The town's local museum is the epitome of this style, housed in an old merchant's house that was built in 1640.

Dartmouth is a great place to bring up children, with easy access to the sea and countryside, while still maintaining a suburban feel closer to the city centre.

Ships often visit the docks, while there is an abundance of wildlife to enjoy in the nearby South Hams, providing parents with plenty of inspiration for weekend and school holiday trips out with the kids.

For adults, Dartmouth's ancient narrow streets are packed full of boutique shops, art galleries and delicatessens. A regularly hosted farmer's market stocking local produce is also popular and is used as a source of produce by many local restaurants, cafes and pubs.

Annual events brings the city to life every year, with the Dart Music Festival being one of the main highlights. A eclectic mix of bands, including performances by local schools and choirs, have been making their way to the city since the festival's inception in 1998, and continue to draw audiences of all ages.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800639229-ADNFCR
