Area surrounding Pound Barn

Pound Barn is an ideal location from which to do many fun things in South Devon.
This overview - plus the list on the right - are drawn from our own and our visitors' experiences.

Dartmouth Town

The historic and picturesque town of Dartmouth is a few minutes’ drive away. There are parking facilities in the town and a ‘Park and Ride’ above the town. Dartmouth has something for everyone - boutiques, cafes, restaurants to suit every taste, antique shops, a historic castle and breathtaking views.

A great way to spend part of the day is to hire a boat and potter on the River Dart at your leisure. In the summer a guided canoe trip on the river and into the creeks is great fun. You can have a picnic and stop for ice cream.

Dartmouth Walks

You can walk straight from Pound Barn down the track to Old Mill Creek and continue on to Dittisham with its fine old pub on the river, the Ferry Inn.

Our favourite at any time of the year is the stunning coastal walk at Little Dartmouth that takes you from the National Trust Car Park to Dartmouth Castle and back. A short and beautiful drive further along the coast brings you to Slapton Sands and the nature reserve at Slapton Ley. The area is popular with anglers, walkers and bird watchers. Try the excellent fish and chips at the Start Bay Inn at Torcross.

Coast and Beach

Blackpool Sands is about three miles away and great for families. It has ample parking, the famous Venus organic café, showers, Surfski, kayak, boogie board, wetsuit and snorkel hire. Further along the coast, numerous other beaches are waiting to be explored.


Dartmouth Golf and Country Club is just over a mile away. It has two beautiful golf courses and is a good place to have lunch.

Food shopping nearby

Sainsbury's Superstore is just 5 minutes away by car on the way into Dartmouth. It's open from Monday to Saturday 8am to 10 pm and on Sundays from 10am to 4pm.
