As August approaches, Dartmouth becomes a hive of activity - on land and water. Contemporary Kaywana Hall and fabulous Nonsuch House - with views to die for - are the perfect luxury bed and breakfast homes from which to enjoy the bustle of Dartmouth's August activities.
Dartmouth hosts its very own Shakespeare Week from 2 August 2011. Set in the incomparable Dartmouth Castle, the Inn Theatre Company is returning to the Comedy canon of The Bard with 'As You Like It'. A romp woud probably best describe this convoluted boy-meets-girl, girl-dresses-up-as-boy, different-girl-falls-in-love-with-'boy'...and so it goes on!
The end of August brings the event of the year, Dartmouth Royal Regatta (starting on 24 August) but activity starts in this small but perfectly formed South Devon town long before. The Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, founded in 1822, is a major annual rowing and sailing regatta based in the Devon port of Dartmouth.
Nearly 100,000 people visit Dartmouth during the Regatta period, swelling the town’s population of 6,000+ and making Dartmouth Regatta one of the largest events in the South West, and the second largest Regatta after Cowes Week.
And, as summer turns to Autumn, Dartmouth hosts one of the most fabulous Food Festivals in South Devon. The Dartmouth Food Festival runs from 21 October 2011 for three days. The Dartmouth Festival of Food aims to showcase local produce and culinary skills in and around beautiful Dartmouth.
