About the location

Right on the Marina, great for boat lovers. The pub The Bridge is two minutes walk from the house so no need to take the car. It serves food all day including breakfast and children are welcome. There is a Morrisons supermarket and a Lidl within a 10 minute drive before you get to the City Centre. The City of Plymouth can be reached by water taxi in 5 minutes across the bay, or bus or car within 10/15 minutes. The A38 and the A379 are close so that you can visit other areas of Devon and Cornwall easily. There are beautiful beaches and lovely countryside very close by. Plymouth is on the border of Devon and Cornwall and you can get to Cornwall using either the Torpoint car ferry or driving over the Tamar Bridge.

In Mount Batten there are two waterside pubs and a little beach, and Bovisand Beach with cafe and parking is just a 5-minute drive away. The South West Coastal Path runs along the front of the property, and you can walk to Turnchapel, which is a little historic riverside village, or along the cliff path to Jennicliffe, with its popular café perched on the headland with the most spectacular views across Plymouth Sound to Mount Edgecumbe in Cornwall on the far side of the bay. From Mount Batten you can catch a little water taxi across to Barbican, with its cobbled streets, restaurants, bars and shops. Here you will find the marine aquarium and the historic waterfront area of Plymouth Hoe, with its iconic outdoor swimming pool lido and panoramic views. The peninsula at Mount Batten itself is a historic site. It was formerly an RAF station for sea planes and the base in the 1930s for Aircraftsman Shaw, better known as Lawrence of Arabia. Beach 100 yards. Shop 2½ miles, pub 50 yards and restaurant 100 yards. Ferries and buses available to the City Centre within a 5 minute walk.
