Merchants Rest, Dartmouth, South Devon

Great events for the autumn and winter 

What the Daily Mail said:

"The gorgeous summer may have had its final fling.  But no worries - autumn is already bringing us a delicious time of mellow fruitfulness to enjoy.  So why not head to the west to watch the changing colours of our coast and woodlands.  Now the tide has turned on summer sun-seekers, Devon, Cornwall and Dorset are delightfully crowd-free and basking in an autumn glow, offering a golden holiday experience.

"Think tantalising food festivals, roaring fires in cosy inns, great seafood restaurants, brisk county walks and empty roads perfect for scenic drives.  And at this time of the year there are deals on seaside cottages and lodges with deserted beaches and spectacular coastal path often right up to the doorstep.  

"Walking parts of the 630-mile South West Coast Path, that winds from Poole in Dorset around to Minehead in Somerset, is a much loved West Country activity.  Amble over secluded stiles towards breathtaking views, as autumn leaves crunch underfoot - and if you're lucky, dolphins porpoises or seals bob in the seas below.

"There's nothing better than a hearty helping of comfort food on a chilly autumn day - and October brings a rich harvest of West Country food festivals.  Celebrity chef Michael Caines will be among those cooking at the North Devon FoodFest in historic Barnstaple Pannier Market, while the prestigious three-day Dartmouth Food Festival will feature Mitch Tonks, Mark Hix and 12 other top local chefs...

"Looking ahead, the West Country's season of lantern festivals and Christmas lights kicks off in late November, bringing giant lanterns through the streets in the shapes of boats, kings, queens and much more.

"Truro's spectacular City of Lights celebration takes place in November followed by a lantern parade in Dartmouth and a candlelight procession through the medieval village of Dunster.  

"Blue Chip Holidays offers well-sited options including Merchants Rest in Dartmouth, a former 17th century merchant's house that includes a stunning Charles I plaster ceiling with cherubs and intricate mouldings."
