It is also valid across the South Hams for use in long stay council run car parks, so as well as Dartmouth you can park for free at Slapton, Totnes, Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Bigbury, Ivybridge and Modbury (details are on the pass).

"Gull’s Rest is a very well equipped, spotlessly clean house located in Dartmouth town, super close to shops and the ferries. There was plenty of space for our family of five. Parking in the town car park (permit provided) was not a problem as it was easy to pull up near the house to unload. We really enjoyed our stay here."

"We had a super stay at Gulls Rest. The cottage is centrally located for the town and the parking was easy and a short walk away. The cottage had a well equipped kitchen, a comfortable bed and a great log burner. Dartmouth is a great place for exploring the coastpath and all the ferries across the estuary were handy for getting around without using the car.The cottage has about 25 uneven steps to climb from the street to the front door so may not be suitable for everyone but was no problem for us."
