  • "Lovely apartment, great views."

    We had a very restful week. A very peaceful location away from it all. You need to stock up before you get in as no shop within walking distance.

  • "An amazing place with the most stunning views."

    You can while away hours watching the navy ships go by and enjoy a beautiful walk into the pretty villages of Kingsand & Cawsand. The Mount Edgcumbe park is a short distance from the property too. We’ll definitely be back!

  • "Our second time in apartment 66 and we enjoyed it as much as the first time."

    The one thing that would very much improve it for us would be a dishwasher. Thank you for the help with the tv Sue.

    Had a very enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing stay with no other problems.

  • "Let’s start by saying this place is all about the location and stunning sea views."

    It’s a little awkward getting to places because of it’s unique location but that’s not a big deal. That flat itself is clean but basic and looking a little tired. Beds were comfy and plenty of storage for clothes. The main drawback though is the shocking water pressure. It takes between 1hr and 2hrs to fill the bath and that’s no exaggeration. The shower is either scalding hot or freezing cold! I don’t believe that they couldn’t invest in a water pressure pump to solve this problem. I just think for a 1 week stay costing over £1400 you should expect to have decent bath and shower! Tony Carter 01/08/21 to 08/08/21

    Thanks for your feedback, Fort Picklecombe has its own water supply and as the apartment is on the top floor the water has a long way to travel. We have been unable to find an issue with the shower and have had no similar reports regarding this. Property Owner

  • "It should be made clear this property is located in the middle of nowhere."

    It is one mile down a very poor single track road. The nearest shop and pub are about four miles away

    We are sorry you feel our description did not accurately describe the location of this property. The web description accurately states the mileage to nearest villages/towns. Property Owner

    A unique location in a beautifully appointed apartment. Whenever we needed a query answered, Helpful Holidays were excellent in responding. The company is also first class in keeping their customers updated with all relevant information.

  • "Hot water pressure can be an issue for some."

    Fort Picklecombe has its own water supply. The apartment is on the top floor and as such the water has a long way to travel. One can get around the problem by using a kettle to top up sinks and baths. There is no such issue with the shower supply.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at Apartment 66, though if you're a light sleeper and the sea is choppy don't expect a quiet time!"

    The bedroom windows have kind of lost all sound-reduction, but fortunately it's a very quiet complex so it's not too much of an issue. We were very pleased to find a Sky Q box which was a plus, though the telly itself has seen better days and could do with an upgrade. Obviously, the sea views are amazing. Overall we would certainly stay there again.

  • "View was brilliant."

    Kitchen was well equipped for self catering. Beds etc. were comfortable. Had a lovely time. Only minor negative was the main bathroom shower, pressure. Difficult to find a good balance between temperature and pressure. Worked well enough for me with short hair and the ensuite shower was good, so it's only a minor one. Would definitely recommend this apartment.

  • "The apartment was wonderful."

    The access was tricky but expected due to location. Make sure the occupants take binoculars! Also the season doesn’t start until after Easter, pool and local sailing taxi boats are closed. I will return!!

  • "This is a lovely top floor apartment with 180degree views of the sea in all her moods."

    We watched the ships sailing in and out of the Plymouth sound. The only thing to be aware of is the narrow lanes getting in and out. We had a lovely walk over to Cawsand and the craft centre at Mount Edgecombe is to recommended. We have been to Fort Picklecombe 6 times so that says it all.

  • "Getting the key for access to the 'estate' was problematic and marred the start of the holiday."

    The facilities were as expected but the mattresses on both beds definitely need changing. They were lumpy and uncomfortable. The door key safe also didn't work smoothly so it took half an hour to gain access to the flat. But the view from the balcony was spectacular,

  • "All A OK.Wonderful view Wonder ful country wonderful apartment ."

    BUT Parking spaces far too small in view of modern car sizes and the insertion of lockers etc in the parking spaces, making vehicles stick out over the allotted space. Spaces are for cars not convenience parking of anything else, and a car. The shower in the second bathroom is a nightmare and needs replacing with one that is user friendly ! The water pressures need boosting.

  • "No major complaints."

    But a grab rail in / over the bath would help some people get in and out of bath / shower. Also owner might want to invest in a dishwasher because who wants to wash pots when on holiday.

  • "This was our 7th holiday in Apartment 66 and have already booked for next year."

    The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped (apart from not having a dishwasher!) but the over-riding factor of Fort Picklecombe apartments is the stunning view out to sea with naval shipping, yachts and ferries.

  • "The location is unique with views over Plymouth Sound."

    If you like watching any type of marine transport this is the place,bring your binoculars. It is a great pity that there is not a ready supply of hot water. The temperature on the immersion heater needs adjusting. It would be impossible to have a bath. To make it worse the showers don't deliver a good flow of water. Helpful Holidays exceeded our expectations but the apartment failed to meet expectations due to the problem with hot water during one of the coldest weeks of the winter.

The property

On the top floor of Fort Picklecombe, No.66 is a light and airy apartment with sensational right-out-to-sea views.

Binoculars are essential here as there is so much fascinating shipping activity, possibly dolphins, certainly seals and cormorants to observe.

A perfect retreat for couples or small family.

Walk through from an outer hall with plenty of room for coats, boots and surfboards to an open-plan living/dining room and galley kitchen all with those amazing views.

Step through the patio doors to the balcony and gaze at the panoramic view from Plymouth in the east and along the Cornish coast in the west.

There are two double bedrooms, one with a king-size bed and one with en suite shower-room, both with views over the well ordered gardens; family bathroom.

A wonderful place for walking, daydreaming and relaxing.

A five minute walk from the Coastal Path or to Mount Edgecumbe Park’s 800 acre estate.

Excellent pubs in the pretty villages of nearby Kingsand and Cawsand.

Why not catch the pedestrian ferry from nearby Cremyll to Plymouth and explore its historic waterfront.
