Blue Moorings

Dartmouth, DevonSleeps: 4Bedrooms: 2Bathrooms: 2

Home > Our Properties > Blue Moorings
Blue Moorings combines an idyllic waterside setting with charming nautical interiors to create an inviting hideaway for up to four guests.

Perched on the banks of the River Dart, Blue Moorings is a cosy waterside bolthole in South Devon. An idyllic base for romantic retreats or small family holidays, it’s set within the award-wining Dart Marina development, just a short walk from the buzzing centre of Dartmouth. 

Bohemian interiors merge with beautiful furnishings and classic nautical nuances throughout Blue Moorings. Overlooking the water, the comfortable lounge invites relaxation. Open the doors on a balmy day and fill the property with a cooling breeze, and as evening falls, draw the curtains and curl up in front of the Smart TV and toasty gas fire. 

The lounge leads straight onto a waterside terrace, which provides a tranquil spot for watching the yachts gently bobbing along the water. You’ll also hear the occasional hoot of the Paignton and Dartmouth steam train puffing along on the opposite bank. 

Finished in rich leather and cool copper tones, the master bedroom is wonderfully eclectic, with a private balcony overlooking the water. The second bedroom is awash with vivid blue tones and features a super king zip and link bed, which can be made up as twins if required. 

Once you’ve soaked up the view from the waterfront balcony, head into Dartmouth and explore the range of boutique shops, galleries and restaurants. Sailing and fishing are high on the agenda of activities in the area, as well as a wealth of breathtaking walks, hidden coves and golden beaches.

Dartmouth

Beaches and watersports

The beautiful Sugary Cove is a remote beach at the far end of Dartmouth. A true locals’ favourite, it’s perfect for a cooling dip when temperatures soar. A short drive away is Blackpool Sands. With crystal clear waters and golden sand, it has a distinctly Mediterranean feel. Beesands, Hope Cove, Bantham and Bigbury are all within driving distance and worth a visit. Treat yourself to a day trip on the African Queen for sea fishing, bird watching or picnic cruises, or catch one of the many passenger ferries for a relaxed experience. 

Outdoor pursuits

With far-reaching views across the sea, embark on a picturesque circular walk which incorporates Dartmouth Castle. Choose from the mile walk that wraps around this historical icon or a moderate four mile coastal path that starts and finishes at the National Trust car park in Little Dartmouth. Keen walkers can opt for the stunning 11.7 mile route from Dartmouth to Start Point Lighthouse. Golfers are also spoilt for choice, with two incredible courses located at The Dartmouth Hotel. 

Heritage and culture

Sitting on a promontory where the River Dart meets the English Channel, Dartmouth Castle was built in 1388 to protect the town and harbour from French raids during the Hundred Years War. Owned by English Heritage, climb to the top of the battlements for stunning views then indulge in a home-made cream tea before hopping back on the passenger ferry to the town centre. Another great day trip is Greenaway House in Kingswear. Once owned by Agatha Christie, it’s also reachable by ferry from Dartmouth. 

Festivals and events

A buzzing destination year round, Dartmouth’s festivals and events are hugely popular with locals and visitors. The Royal Regatta takes place every summer on Thursday, Friday and Saturday in August (when it’s the last Friday of the month). With spectacular air displays, rowing races on the River Dart and a steamboat rally, meander along the waterfront and enjoy the street market. The nearby Torbay Steam Fair is another brilliant annual event, and foodies will love the Rockfish Crab Festival hosted by Mitch Tonks and Angela Hartnett.

Food and drink

Dartmouth is a truly wonderful destination for food-lovers. Serving the freshest seafood, Mitch Tonk’s The Seahorse is a firm favourite for special occasions and indulgent lunches. Sat on the waterfront, The Angel is an incredibly well respected restaurant run by Elly Wentworth, who was a Professional Masterchef runner up in 2016. For a relaxed, beach-style atmosphere, head to Rockfish or tuck into an unforgettable breakfast at Beth’s Bistro. Kendricks Restaurant and Bar is always buzzing and welcoming, and Browns Bar is great for tapas and wine.  

Activities for children

All fantastic options for rainy days and keeping the children entertained, Dartmoor Zoo, Woodlands Adventure Park and the River Dart Country Park are within a 25-40 minute drive. The Totnes Rare Breeds Farm, the Buckfast Butterfly Farm, Pennywell Farm and the Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary are great options for animal lovers. And family thrill-seekers will love Splashdown Quaywest water park in Paignton, which is the perfect place to cool down on a hot and sunny day. We’d also recommend a tranquil trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway. 

Time for pampering

If you're hoping to switch off from the outside world, The Dartmouth Hotel Spa and The Discovery Spa at the Soar Mill Cove Hotel both offer a range of tempting beauty treatments. From heated spring-fed swimming pools to reflexology and pregnancy massage, you'll feel completely refreshed and rejuvenated, all the while surrounded by Dartmouth's picturesque coast and country.

Nearby towns

Located in the most southerly part of Devon, a day trip to Salcombe is an absolute must. Home to a whole host of independent shops, restaurants and galleries, this exclusive seaside town is flanked by sandy beaches and edged by the sparkling Salcombe Estuary. The annual Salcombe Town and Sailing Regatta takes place each August, and is packed with events, competitions and air displays. We’d also recommend a quick trip to Plymouth for a rainy afternoon spent shopping, watching the latest blockbuster at the Vue cinema complex or catching a show at the Theatre Royal.

Great service. Beautiful house overlooking the Dart River. Shear luxury.

The Billington Family, Lutterworth | Trustpilot - February 2021

Blue Moorings is a gem of a property. Location couldn't be more ideal, beautiful views over the river dart and dart marina, even in November the views were spectacular. Property has everything you could hope for; on arrival we felt immediately relaxed and at home. All local amenities are within easy walking distance and on your doorstep there are a range of fabulous walks. A place to arrive, park your car and then leave it until you return home.

Can recommend catching the local boat to Dittisham and then walking back to Dartmouth via Long Woods, a beautiful walk for the senses. Perfect Stays made the booking and arrival very easy and as our stay coincided with the announcement of lockdown II, we appreciated how quickly they contacted us and clarified government advice. Loved our stay and would definitely return....a place to relax, unwind and recoup. Much needed in current climate.
