The Dart Harbour from Jawbones Hill, above Dartmouth


The historic port of Dartmouth is just 5 miles away. It is full of attractive old buildings, modern restaurants, shops, pubs, and cafés. It is home to the Britannia Royal Naval College which has been training naval officers since 1863.

You can participate in many water-borne activities – rowing, sailing, canoeing, fishing, various ferries, etc., from Dartmouth. Or you can relax in the gardens, museum or the Flavel Arts Centre.

Our proximity to Dartmouth is undoubtedly a great feature of the Start Bay Holiday Park, however our residents do not have to endure the frenzy of Dartmouth on their own doorstep.
