most "wives of" on here are happy with camping, you will be giving them ideas now. Just think of how many necessary "shinney things" you could buy that are totally necessary for a rib for that amount

Comes from a guy that sold his RIB and bought a Yacht so that the missus wouldn't have to camp

We've used Dartside holiday homes a lot for winter trips to Dartmouth, they have various places around the town and are reasonable. Beware that their cheaper places are a bit rough now as they've not been decorated etc for a while, their more expensive apartments are much better.

As Pete says Mrs Nasher is happy to camp during the summer, although we've promised ourselves a couple of nights at the Dart Marina hotel when our numbers come up. 170 is less than we pay for a week during August. Oh how the other half live.

Reasonable places to eat are few and far between in Dartmouth, although the pub up by the upper ferry is good. Another one I can't remember the name of that we've eaten at is near the police station, on the left as you head down the road back to the riverside.

The family and I are off to Brixham next week, so will have to check out these Hotels and eateries in that area.

Still, you can't beat Fish and Chips on the Quayside IMHO.

Dartmouth is an expensive destination, as with a few others in the South West.

I wanted to. I told the missus she was driving the car and I the RIB by Sea. We would have a race, Top Gear syle and see who won.

She then muttered several words I cannot mention here and said something about this being a "family" holiday

The Kids love the RIB
