Spyglass is our lovely, quiet, quirky, cosy and cute little hide-away in Dartmouth. The Address is 6 Nelson Steps, Dartmouth TQ69BS. We have lovely views across the Dart to Kingswear, up and down the river, down the estuary and past the castle and out to sea . It is up a few steps but it does make it a gloriously quiet location. There is a nice light shower room, kitchen diner, ground floor bedroom with 2 single beds that can be pushed together as a double. Up steep ladder stairs is the sitting room with lovely Dart river views, double sofa bed, tv/dvd/radio and FreeSky box. The whole place is nautically themed. Outside up a short ladder is a small roof terrace with Dart River views with table and 4 chairs. We ask guests to bring their own linen. Parking is on the road during the off season and during the summer season a parking permit is provided with the cottage giving free unlimited parking in the town centre carpark. There are wonderful walks along the coast East and West and Spyglass is directly on the Coastal Path. The town centre with its many and varied shops and restaurants is just 2 minutes walk. River and fishing trips run regularly from the quay side. The cottage is on the Western lower slopes of the Dart and looks down on the Lower Ferry. You can sit on the sofa in the sitting room and watch the fishing boats and yachts coming in, and, in the evening you can sit and see the lights illuminating Dartmouth Castle and track the lights of boats as they come in. I have a Jaguar 27 yacht on the River Dart and guests with suitable sailing qualifications and insurance may be able to use her. We can only usually do short breaks out of season or during the week before the short break.

The Devon region

Dartmouth is famous for its beautiful scenery, the wonderful Dart estuary, walking, fishing, crabbing, the Royal Naval College and many more unique features. You can approach Dartmouth by road, ferry, and even steam train so access is very good - but as it is well off the main Exeter to Plymouth road there is little traffic just passing through - Dartmouth is a destination in itself. Facilities are very good with a range of eating places from family based to fine dining. Supermarkets range from the Co-op to a Marks and Spencer Food Hall plus small delicatessens. There is a library with free computer use and a small cinema. Crabbing is a particular Dartmouth pastime for children. Walks out to Dartmouth Castle (operated by English Heritage) ,where tea and scones can be had, are particularly popular - though as it is the coast path it leads right around the South West coast. Dartmouth is a place with something for everyone.

South Town

This part od Devon is blessed with a rather special microclimate making it one of the warmest, sunniest parts of England.
