Festivals and pop-up quayside events


We love getting involved in local festivals and those further afield.  Some of these like the Falmouth Classics Regatta we include as part of our sailing programme, others like the Dartmouth Music and Food festivals we offer individual table bookings for. 

We also set up pop-up cafe, music and yoga events from time to time.  Keep an eye out for announcements on Twitter or subscribe to our mailing list for direct notices. 

What people say


I had such a great, relaxing weekend and the sailing experience on the Thames barge was fascinating.'

..what better place to stay than Qiao and Paul’s fantastic ‘Pirate Ship’!! My two children were very excited at this turn of events! (Although, slightly disappointed we didn’t see any actual pirates!!) Qiao and Paul are absolutely fantastic hosts, very friendly.


'A memorable break - the combination of the sea, Devon, yoga, good company and great food.'

Book with peace of mind.
