Dartmouth - with its narrow streets, long flights of steps, overhanging medieval houses and old quays is well worth a visit.
Woodlands Family Theme Park - provides a whole day of variety for all ages. One inclusive admission price to the family attraction includes incredible indoor centres, outdoor adventures, Zoo, Big Fun Farm and Falconry Centre.
