Rib Friendly establishments!!!?

After a very succesfull trip down to Dartmouth,a warm welcome, and a very good meal,it crossed my mind if a thread about ''Rib friendly'' venues may be something of interest to members??
Anyway by way of kicking it off [and I know a few Gooduns!].. I CAN recomend The 'Resnova' floating Bar,and Restraunt.[A converted Dutch Barge]
Situated on the River Dart[Next to town centre].You can moor onto her, eat drink and be merry,catch a water Taxi to shore, which also operrates from there[cheaper than town mooring fees!] They also have nice Showers-a great boon if you come a long way[Hey Avocett] Private dineing rooms if you are antisocial! and Also do B and B at reasonable rates! What a great way to make an early start to an extended cruise!!...,say to the Scillies!? Thier Telephone No. is 07770 62 89 67 I hope this is of interest!
I may be organiseing a ''Christmas criuse'' and ''Gluttony fest'' there with a couple of mates if anyone is interested... Dont worry Chris!! your on the list

Maximus, would be very interested to hear about this. Just broadening it a little - if any locals to the Dart area know of any RIB friendly cottages or small places for holiday rent but with space to safely leave a RIB and trailer offroad?

As a young lad we spent many family holidays in Kingswear and I would love to go back with my family. It would be brilliant to be able to take the RIB too for obvious reasons.

Just to broaden it a little more, if anyone knows of anywhere on the South coast with RIB friendly cottages or small places for holiday rent but with space to safely leave a RIB and trailer off road please post it on here. I need a proper holiday next year and not just the odd weekend trailing the boat. Quiet Campsites with slipways considered too.

Hi, Would like to recommend a campsite at Carbis bay, St. ives called Little Trevarrack. Just had 2 weeks there, Fantastic. Although it doesn't have a slipway (a mile from sea) it covers everything else for someone with a sib/rib.

first of all you are a short distance from some great places to launch such as Hayle, Penzance, Marazion and only 30-40mins away from Falmouth. All these give access to some stunning scenery, great places to visit and visit pubs/restaurants.

The site itself is top notch and highly recommended, and very safe for your rib/sib. Suggest you check out the reviews on ukcampsite.co.uk

Jake

Hi Jake, where is the nearest slip (are there any pontoons to load the family etc) or am I asking a daft question (dont know the area) and what are the charges and parking like. Thanks.

I'm going to have to put in a mention for The Port Askaig Hotel on Islay, who's garden fronts onto the harbour. Seafood and Whisky galore...

Bam Bam take a look at Dart Valley Cottages. I have booked through them 4 times in the last 13 months. You could arrange to keep your rib at blackness marine for the week and use it when you need to or stick it on a vistors mooring for a week............you will love it.

David is your contact at Blackness.
