The open plan living room and kitchen with wrap-around balcony provide you with an excellent space to relax and enjoy the stunning views. Underfloor heating with separate controls for all rooms including both bedrooms keep you cosy and always at your ideal temperature. A quiet neighbourhood, a choice of pillows & duvets suiting summer or winter should set you up for a good night’s sleep.
The lounge is a beautifully light place to relax in the reclining sofa & chairs to take in the panoramic and “ever-changing” views. Alternatively choose a film from Amazon Prime, while away the time listening to Prime Music or reading a Kindle book / magazine – all free.
The contemporary kitchen is fully equipped should you prefer to eat in as opposed to dine out at the many restaurants in the locality including at the historic Royal William Yard. And you can relax knowing that when you arrive we’ve sorted basics such as tea, coffee, sugar, a few cooking essentials and fresh milk.
The apartment is ideal for four but can accommodate five. We want you to have a good night’s sleep – the King Size bed (5’) and single beds have Casper mattresses. NB for stays of 3 nights or more, on request, we can push together the two single beds to make a super king size bed with super king sized linen and duvet. You also have a selection of pillows & summer / winter duvets. The master bedroom has an en suite shower while the family bathroom has bath & shower. And each room has separate heating controls to help keep the room at your preferred temperature.
The apartment is centrally located - this means you’re close to everything within Plymouth.
In 10 minutes drive you can be at the following places: the train station, the bus station, the Continental Ferry Port, Plymouth University, Plymouth Argyle Football Club, Plymouth Albion Rugby Club (in fact that’s 5 minutes walk!), Brickfields Athletics Stadium, The Royal William Yard for a fantastic range of bars and restaurants, The Theatre Royal for West End standard shows, The Hoe where Sir Francis Drake famously finished his game of bowls before engaging with the Spanish Armada, The Barbican where the Mayflower sailed to America, the city centre and all within it including Drake Circus Shopping Centre. The National Marine Aquarium is 15 minutes drive. And if you choose to walk to the city centre it will take about 25 minutes.
There are two local supermarkets within 5-10 minutes walk or Sainsbury’s in less than 10 minutes drive. Buses go to the city centre and to The Royal William Yard.
Guests continue to be amazed by the view when they arrive at the apartment - and if you happen to be staying for the British Fireworks Championships in August you'll have an excellent view from the balcony if you'd rather stay in and watch in comfort with a glass of wine in hand!
Venturing Further Afield:
Plymouth is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in England. Experience the rugged beauty of Dartmoor to the north; The South Hams, an area of outstanding natural beauty and the unspoilt coastline of Cornwall is either just a short ferry ride across the water on the Cremyll Passenger Ferry or take your car on the Torpoint Ferry or across the Tamar Bridge.
Check out the National Trust website for properties in the locality including Saltram House where Sense and Sensibility was filmed, Buckland Abbey where Sir Francis Drake lived or Antony House in Cornwall where parts of Alice in Wonderland starring Jonny Depp was filmed.
The Eden Project is also within one hour’s drive.
The apartment is located on a previous naval site, Mount Wise, and has been designed by award winning architects. The development encompasses Georgian style town houses set among mature trees, the historic Admiralty House where Winston Churchill once lived and a cricket pitch in the middle which is home to Plymouth Cricket Club. The apartment overlooks the southern gardens of Admiralty House to which residents of Mount Wise have access.
This part of Plymouth continues to undergo significant regeneration as illustrated by this high quality development. As you’d expect in a large city, close to the dock yard and with heavy naval links, there are areas nearby that represent the poorer parts of Plymouth.
There is more development happening at the entrance of the site which has little if any impact on the apartment.
Within five minutes walk you can be strolling along the banks of The Tamar, heading towards the old harbour of Mutton Cove and taking in views across to Mount Edgcumbe. You’ll also discover Mount Wise open air swimming pool which is open in the summer months and The Scott Memorial commemorating the famous Antarctic explorer. All this is part of the Mount Wise Park.
