Ashburton - a little detour?
This little detour hardly puts an extra mile on your journey as Ashburton is right beside the A38. An easy little town to navigate & it has the most amazing collection of independent retailers who put such creativity & effort into what they do.
There are several great eating options in Ashburton. Ones we have tried & can give thumbs up to are:- https://rustandthewolf.co.uk/
Cafe Latino, 19a North Street, 01364 653105
We recommend to guests on their way to Dartmouth to not come via the ferry & Torquay. It is much more interesting the other way passing Ashburton, Buckfastleigh, Totnes & Dartington, without the expense of the ferry crossing. As if Ashburton were not lovely enough, there are may other tempting things to do on this route. If you need some inspiration check out this earlier blog post about why we recommend this route. https://www.dartmouth-selfcatering.com/single-post/2019/04/27/ignore-your-sat-nav-you-wont-regret-it
