Warfleet Creek is a small triangular tidal inlet in the west side of the River Dart estuary. It is home to Dartmouth Pottery, a local landmark building that has had a variety of uses over the past 400 years.
Warfleet, along with Southtown, Gallants Bower and the Week valley were from Saxon times up to the end of the eighteenth century owned by the lord of Stoke Fleming. It was once part of a separate manor and parish which developed as a small community of its own, separate from the town of Dartmouth, the boundary of Dartmouth stopped at Bayards Cove.
It’s right next to the road, so car is the easiest way of getting here, though it’s easily walkable from the town.
- At low tide there is a stony beach with some small rock pools.
