What’s Local to The Fleet Care Home?

Dartmouth is a town rich in culture, history, and tradition. With castles and impressive forts, old buildings, and plenty of fascinating museums documenting the area’s history, Dartmouth is known for both its maritime and technical importance. Simply walking through the streets of Dartmouth reveals a unique side of the town that you wouldn’t have ever thought existed, from its variety of stunning architecture, many of which date all the way back to the 16th century. Dartmouth’s nautical legacy is amazing, with castles, forts, and even links to areas of history you might not have even expected.

Dartmouth is still an important naval location, and it is home to the Britannia Royal Naval College. Spend a day touring Dartmouth’s historical buildings and locations, which are all open to the public. Dartmouth is known for more than its marine heritage, however; it is also the birthplace of Thomas Newcomen, the creator of the steam engine, which can be seen in action at the Dartmouth Visitor Centre. From the town’s various art galleries and distinctive stores to the Dartmouth Museums, which record the town’s history, to the Flavel Arts Centre & Cinema, which has a packed daily calendar, there is something for everyone.

In the town and surrounding area, you’ll find a diverse range of indoor attractions, all of which promise a fun-filled, adventurous, or educational day out all under one roof. If you’re looking for a fun day out, we recommend paying a visit to Coleton Fishacre House and Gardens. Turn the clock back to the Jazz Age at the D’Oyly Carte family’s country estate and fully  immerse yourself in this RHS-accredited garden. Check out the impressive and enticing views out to sea from the various viewpoints across the grounds, or simply take a moment to meander through the beautiful meadows that weave past peaceful ponds, and delicate plants from across the globe.

If you’re on the lookout for some of the UK’s most stunning beaches, then you should definitely visit the beaches in and around the Dartmouth area while you or a loved one are staying with us at The Fleet Care Home. When staying in Dartmouth, you will never be far from a variety of beaches or absolutely gorgeous coastlines, each of which offers a unique encounter with the beauty that nature has to offer, such as the opportunity to create sandcastles or take part in coastal walks and activities.

Dartmouth beaches have it all, whether you’re seeking a calm cove to sit and listen to the ocean as it crashes against the rocks, or a coastal stretch to walk the dog. Castle Cove and Sugary Cove, both near Dartmouth Castle, are wonderful quiet beaches with stunning views of the estuary and the castle that you’d be foolish to miss. In addition to the natural surroundings, Dartmouth has lovely gardens and parks to explore, which are more than ideal for a peaceful walk amongst the trees, a picnic with your nearest and dearest, or taking part in lots of fun and exciting games for the whole family.

A trip to a zoo or farm in Dartmouth is a terrific way to keep adults and children alike entertained. It’s an excellent chance to get active and hands-on while also getting up close and personal with a variety of animals. Animal lovers will be interested in more than just zoos and farms however; that’s why the nature reserves and coast around Devon are home to a variety of native wildlife. We recommend taking one of the many river cruises up the River Dart to see a variety of species in their natural habitat.
