Set on the edge of the beautiful River Dart, the RDYC Cottage provides a comfortable and picturesque place to stay within easy reach of Dartmouth.
An added advantage to staying in this cottage is the exclusive temporary membership of the Royal Dart Yacht Club which enables you to enjoy a sundowner on the wonderful water front terrace in the evening sunshine and perhaps even an evening meal when you don’t feel like cooking for yourself from the superb in house Club chef.

The space
The property is perfect for friends or couples.
Entering through the private passageway will bring you to the front door; step down into the kitchen and walk through into the light and bright sitting room. Upstairs will bring you to a king-size double bedroom with an adjacent shower room. A second set of stairs lead up to a second-floor double room with a bathroom. Both rooms are delightfully furnished with comfortable beds, luxurious linen and soft fluffy towels and most importantly gorgeous glimpses of the river across the terrace!

The RDYC cottage is part of the yacht club - on occasions there will be members outside on the terrace, by staying as a guest you will be granted temporary membership of the club which enables you to use the club house facilities such as the bar, terrace and restaurant and even watch the hotly contested racing each Wednesday night from April - September. We are an active Members club with Junior Sailing happening on Saturday mornings, and racing on Friday nights, Saturday afternoons as well as every Wednesday night. Boats are always coming &
going so there is always something to watch, it's a yachtie heaven in Devon!
We are now pleased to say we can offer temporary moorings to cottage guests if you arrive by boat, just ask for more details.

Where you’ll be

Kingswear, England, United Kingdom

The village of Kingswear offers you the choice of two pubs both with great views and food , there is a wonderfully quirky and helpful post office just around the corner which sells more than stamps. There's a choice of two amazing coffee and breakfast cafes so take your pick.......there's even a world famous steam train which can take you on an outstanding trip alongside the river to the home of Agatha Christie. Closer to home the ferry just around the corner from the RDYC Cottage will take you across to Dartmouth in just 5 minutes where there are many fine restaurants and shops to keep everyone happy, there are beaches, castles, boat trips, museums, markets and beautiful walks to discover, you really won't be stuck for things to do - Dartmouth is a thriving living town holding a variety of different events throughout the year from a delightful 3 day Music Festival in May, a Royal Regatta in August, a Food Festival in October and Candlelit Dartmouth before Christmas along with many other smaller but perfectly formed events happening all year round. So the RDYC Cottage really is a cottage to base your stay in all year round.
