About the location


Dartmoor 17 miles; Torbay 32 miles; Cornwall 5 miles.

Surrounded by the rugged beauty of Dartmoor, the glorious countryside of the South Hams and the vibrant scenery of the South Devon coast, Plymouth offers the perfect mixture of maritime heritage and natural beauty in a vibrant city environment. Wander through the maze of narrow streets with their shops, restaurants and art galleries and down to the Barbican quayside, where the city's maritime history begins. Take a stroll up to the Hoe with its unsurpassed view across one of the world's finest natural harbours and where Francis Drake played bowls as the Armada sailed into view! Take a tour of the Plymouth Gin distillery, watch a show at the Theatre Royal or spend a fascinating few hours at the National Marine Aquarium. There are also boat trips around the Sound and Naval dockyards, watersports at the Mountbatten Centre and the recently opened city-centre shopping mall to explore. The wild tors of Dartmoor, the beach resorts of Torbay, several stately homes and gardens and the splendid coastal scenery of South Cornwall can all be reached in under 45 minutes.
