At Dartmouth’s The Glasshouse, the only stones you’ll want to throw are skimmers on Blackpool Sands. Sleeping four in the epitome of architectural refinement, The Glasshouse comes with no surprises in its construction. Yes, it’s mainly glass.
The real surprises are elsewhere. Like the secluded garden, the Juliette balcony, the harbour views and the bi-fold doors that invite the ocean breeze to join you for a light tea.
At The Glasshouse, everything flows. The outside flows in and the inside out just as fluidly as the wine and conversation around the dining table. Life at The Glasshouse is transparently good.
The Garden View Room is a wonderful living space which occupies the whole of the ground floor, this room could be described as a dance floor!
With its clever planning and furnishings it is a fantastic room in which you can relax, cook, eat, drink and enjoy.
Throw open the bi-folding doors in the summer and catch the breeze or get all comfy and cosy in the winter and put on the impressive wall hung gas fire.
The outside space is just perfect – very private and very pretty.
The garden has been beautifully designed with a circular lawn, beach side pebbles and wonderful purple planting. It’s big enough for a game of swing ball or a bounce on the trampoline but also perfect for an intimate dinner on the deck or a lunchtime barbecue in the sun. Outdoor furniture and of course a barbecue are all provided.
The kitchen has all the latest appliances and gadgets and we think you will enjoy using the instant hot water tap, induction hob, Nespresso machine and wine fridge.The nearby cloakroom and utility room is very handy for housing the washing machine and tumble dryer and hiding all those things you don’t really want to see.
There is fantastic dining on offer nearby – Dartmouth and Totnes are brimming over with gourmet restaurants, inns and cafes from the Michelin-starred Angel in Dartmouth to Riverside Organic’s field kitchen.
Looking for a special meal without any fuss? Our highly rated chefs will prepare a celebratory meal to order, all cooked and cleared out of the way. Once the plates are cleared, they’ll leave you to enjoy the rest of the evening.
For special occasions, we can arrange all kinds of catering – from a simple buffet, to a summer BBQ or a fully catered holiday. Just let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll sort it out.

In the Harbour View Room you really do feel like you are beside the sea in this nautically inspired room.
