Just before you hit the river, near Dartmouth ferry, is a slice of watery bliss. The steam railway is bang in front of you and then the estuary, with boats to watch and constantly changing light. Dartmouth is a two-minute ferry ride and the owner leaves you a passenger card so you don’t have to pay.
Indoors has a relaxed, seaside feel with interesting vintage trinkets dotted about, ships lanterns for lampshades and local artwork – a little table sits under the window so you can watch the goings-on if you eat indoors.
Lie in bed and watch estuary life unfurl, or sit on your private boardwalk, an idyllic spot for breakfast. Explore Dartmouth, walk straight onto the coastal path and to excellent pubs, return to watch the sunset over the water.
