    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Please note Spyglass is undergoing refurbishment and enlargement and will be, by the summer of 2015, a 2 bedroom cottage.

There will also be new views up river as well - the upstairs gable window area is being trebled in size! there will also be a small door giving direct access to the roof terrace.

    How to get there
    Airport: Exeter International Airport, European and Internal Flights: 55.0 km
    Railway: Dartmouth Steam Train (Kingswear): 1.0 km
    Ferry: Plymouth: 65.0 km
    Many people drive to Dartmouth ,and, my favourite arrival is to drive along the road to Brixham (A380) from Exeter then head for the Lower Ferry in Dartmouth - it can mean quite a wait in the summer as queues build up for this uniquely odd Dartmouth ferry - there is also the Upper Ferry which is larger and faster but not as quirky! you can also arrive by steam train from Paignton or tie in with Network rail and come all the way by train, then a short ferry hop across the Dart to Dartmouth.

My husband, children and I have stayed at Spyglass twice now, and are hoping to return to celebrate my 40th birthday next year. I have fallen completely in love with Dartmouth, and the views over the Dart from this characterful, cosy little property are simply stunning. The cottage would suit a couple, but we managed quite nicely as a family of four (as a family of five last time, actually, with the older children in the twin beds and Nancy in the same room in her travel cot!). The castle is a little under a mile from the property, and my favourite morning run is there and back - steep on the way, more gentle on the return! We found Spyglass to be exactly as advertised: it is quiet, comfortable and original, and nautically themed. One thing we did have a quandary over was recycling, but Martin (the owner) was very helpful with this and told us where to find the recycle bins next to the main town car park. Martin was fantastic all round, actually; really friendly and helpful. Do take... more
