  • “Cannon’s Folly was a lovely property.”

    Set in an old fort, the apartment is in an old cannon emplacement. The property feels cosy and is well appointed. We were able to sit out on the balcony and watch the boats/ships come up the Sound. There is access to The Coastal Path and lovely walks over the Kingsand, Cawsand and Mount Edgcumbe Estate - it is steep in places but worth the effort. We made great use of the Ferry at Mount Edgcumbe over to the Barbican, the crew were so friendly. Paul contacted us to let us know that the property ...

We made great use of the Ferry at Mount Edgcumbe over to the Barbican, the crew were so friendly. Paul contacted us to let us know that the property was ready for us in advance 4pm so that we could get in early. We would highly recommend this property. Thanks Paul, we really enjoyed our stay.

The property

Cannon's Folly is a stylish studio apartment in Fort Picklecombe, the striking 19th century former fort looking over the sea.

With amazing views all around along the Devon and Cornwall coasts, it is a fascinating spot to sit and watch the nautical world go by (binoculars provided).

Leave your boots and coats in the hall and head into the beautifully finished open plan living space with sofa bed where you can sit and observe the ever-changing scene of passing ships and the light shining over the waves.

Sliding open the doors to the balcony will bring the outside in.

The double bedroom is separated from the living area, from here you can take the opportunity to lie in bed and gaze at that view.

Bring your water sports and walking gear, which can be left in the outer hall, giving you the perfect opportunity to enjoy the beaches and sailing opportunities around pretty Kingsand and Cawsand, as well as walking the fabulous Mount Edgcumbe estate with its grand house and extensive gardens.

For the vibrant buzz of Plymouth, it's easy to catch a pedestrian ferry or the car ferry to the Ocean City, where you can go to the theatre, shop, eat out and visit the National Marine Aquarium.

With all this within convenient reach, as well as those timeless sea views to linger over, Cannon's Folly really is a stunning destination.

About the location

KINGSAND

Plymouth 24 miles.

The twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, with narrow streets winding between pastel-coloured cottages, lie on the Rame Peninsula just 5 miles from Plymouth, but because the high ground of Mount Edgcumbe lies between, you are not aware of being near a large city. Instead, you can relax in the peace and quiet of village life, and look out over Plymouth Sound which offers calm waters ideal for watersports, fishing and bathing. Take a walk south along the coastal path to Penlee Point for the glorious views of Rame Head, towering above the sea, or, a walk north along the coast will take you to Mount Edgcumbe Park with fabulous views of Plymouth Sound. From Cawsand, take a ferry trip to Plymouth and visit the Aquarium, the historic Barbican or enjoy a spot of retail therapy. Just a mile west of Kingsand lies Whitsand Bay, with 4 miles of sandy beach and dramatic cliffs. You really are spoilt for choice in this ‘secret hideaway’.
