Surbtion is almost a hidden gem, it is what we like to think of it. It has an amazing community, that get together and do crazy things, this is a community that knows how to do fun! With its Village feel and yet just a 20 minutes trip to London by train this is arguably one of the best place to live. The river Thames is right there offering bike paths, walking paths boats, plus life on the river. You are less than 5 minutes from all the major shops of Kingston and yet you are surrounded by tree lined street, old architecture and a beautiful village with everything you need.

A little bit of history

The natural deep water harbour has been the driving force behind the town's history as a port and military centre. It grew to prominence in the Middle Ages exporting cloth from Totnes, and importing wine from France and Spain. The Cherub Inn (1380) and The Butterwalk (1628) which includes the Dartmouth Museum, are two of the oldest surviving buildings, among a wealth of architectural interest. Dartmouth lost economic momentum when Plymouth was preferred as the base for a western naval defence force. The consolation prize though, when the navy "returned" in 1863, was the magnificent red brick Britannia Royal Naval College which opened in 1905 as a training base for naval officers.
