The Moby II is a beautiful old boat in a lovely spot and we enjoyed our stay a lot! We had a quite adventurous (?) stay, as the ship stands dry regularly (it’s low tide twice every 24 hours) and leans towards the quay for a couple of hours. It makes making diner a bit of a challenge. The master bedroom is beautiful, just like the dining- and kitchen area and the bathroom. We mostly used the bathrooms from the harbour though, as we didn’t have to look after those. The children enjoyed the “tv-room” upstairs. We couldn’t have done without wifi, which you can buy at the harbour-office. The small village-center is big enough, with a small supermarket nearby and a big one just a bit further; we can also recommend the fish & chip shop and the Chinese take-away. We spent one afternoon going across with the ferry (free when you walk) to have a drink in a pub on the other side with a view of the Moby II, and really enjoyed it.
Most evenings were spent sitting on the deck with a glass of wine: enjoying the lights of Plymouth, the harbour, the boats and the three ferry’s, “fantastic! Some deckchairs might be an addition to the inventory; fortunately we had some with us.
We brought our children aged 14 and 16 and found some good activities in the area. They loved the Giant-swing and Zip-wire as recommended by Viv, and shopping in Plymouth was great too.
