This beautiful ground-floor apartment is situated in an enviable position within the city of Plymouth. Less than a mile stroll away is the highly-rated Royal William Yard offering a stunning setting for eateries, bars and local shops with breathtaking views over Plymouth Sound and across to Cornwall. You can choose to wander around the Cricket Grounds, and the nearby parks, go wild swimming at Devils Point, or walk on the Hoe. If you prefer, there is a choice of local outdoor swimming pools, Mount Wise (about a 20 min walk) has three pools or on the seafront 2 miles away, the beautiful Grade II, Art Deco Tinside Lido is the perfect place for a dip in the summer months. If you are more of a night owl, Plymouth has a very active theatre and concert venue, which is also the home of the Plymouth Raiders Basketball Team. Plymouth is a great base to explore Devon and Cornwall, with its quaint villages, cathedrals, towns and truly stunning beaches. Some are not too far away, Bovisand (8 miles) and Burgh Island (24 miles) or if you rather go by foot – take the ferry from Royal William Yard to Cawsands. Alternatively, you can devote a day to discovering the natural wonders and beauty of Dartmoor National Park, or explore the remarkable Eden Project (36 miles).

When you arrive at Mount Wise, and step inside the communal entrance hallway and into your apartment, you can relax, take your shoes off, hang up your coats, and make yourself a drink with the complementary welcome pack. Just inside the apartment door on your right is a useful cupboard with a washer/dryer, on your left is somewhere to keep your keys and a welcome book, which explains more details about the apartment.

An amazing place to stay which offers a high level of comfort. Incredible attention to detail made for a 'home from home' stay with many thoughtful 'extras' that will make this a place you won't want to leave! Slept so well. Very well equipped kitchen/open plan living. Super location.

Definitely want to come back. Thank you! Hide
