Dartmouth, Devon, England
Spyglass is now refurbished and enlarged and is transformed into a lovely cosy 2 bedroom cottage retaining all it's original charm but with a new twist upstairs........the ground-floor kitchen/dining is now a second bedroom.

There is also a small door giving direct access to the roof terrace with more fine river and sea views.

I can not express how upset I was by this review. I think it is important to try and correct things if they are not up to standard. You did call me - not only was I nice and apologetic, but I also said I...More

Nice little appartement with picturesque view. With its steep steps this part of Dartmouth looked almost meditarrenean to us. Excellent starting point for walks along coast path and to Greenway. Very friendly owner. We didn't use the terrace much which is a little difficult to...More

Small children and the infirm may find Spyglass a problem as there are 32 steps and not easy for a pushchair. Also there is no child gate at the top of the stairs at the property...

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 the 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.
