The Cottage

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 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.

Other things to note
COVID 19: Our cottage will of course be clean and spotless before each arrival and we will follow the guidance given by Airbnb about suitable sanitisation measures to help protect our guests and to this end we have to increased our cleaning fee to enable us to incorporate the gov guidelines into our already stringent cleaning routines. We will also have to ask guests to strip their own beds and place all used bedding into a linen sack prior to leaving the cottage and remove all rubbish to the club bins.

Guests should note that the cottage overlooks the Terrace which is open to members – we will adhere to the social distancing guidelines so the number of people allowed will be limited. The bar will shut at 10pm but the Terrace will remain open for your use.

Dogs: Whilst we do allow dogs to stay in the cottage we must point out that they are not allowed in the clubhouse at any time. They are welcome on the club terrace provided they are kept on a lead and are well behaved.
