  • Lovely and quiet space to escape the crowds on a busy day. Gardens well tended and neat. Good place to have a rest and a snack. Some good buskers most days we were there.  more »

  • These gardens, on what was once an man-made island which is still known to locals four centuries on as the New Ground, were once the pride of the town. Although the seasonal planting, much of it the hard work of volunteers, can still impress visitors, the District Council has been so neglecting the area badly in recent years that they are a sorry shadow of their past glory. They have also wrecked most of the hedges and shrubs and chopped down the trees that used to make this such a tranquil and beautiful spot - these days you are constantly aware of traffic on all sides. At the time of writing there is a plan to devolve the gardens' management back to the town, so one can but hope for an improvement.
  • We visited during Royal Regatta week & the atmosphere was wonderful. Lots of entertainment included live music & large variety of food & drinks.
  • Beautifull😎
  • A nice place that relax away from the crowds who are either cramped into the narrow streets aloe perched on the countless benches overlooking the supreme views.
  • Great views when you reach the top.

Where to stay in Dartmouth

Look along the winding streets of Dartmouth for the majority of its fine accommodations, with guesthouses hidden on residential roads, and pubs with attached bed and breakfasts located right in the heart of town. With a traditional feel and look to them, they get the imagination going and set you up for a good day of exploring the town. The rural areas to the south of town add some campsites to the mix, located close to scenic walking routes and the coast.
