The cottage

Aptly named The View, this smart three-storey waterside property is situated along the South West Coast Path in Plymouth, Devon.

With glorious views over the river Tamar and its yacht filled harbour, here you’re within easy reach of the best that Plymouth has to offer and a few minutes walk from the historic Royal William Yard, where you'll find a host of upscale restaurants, bars, galleries and shops. Tucked securely behind a gated entrance of a pretty courtyard, The View has been renovated into a stylish holiday home.

Bright and airy with a real holiday atmosphere, yet retaining a welcoming and homely feeling. On the ground floor, the modern open-plan kitchen/dining area with breakfast nook (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, gas hob and electric oven) looks out over the pretty decked garden with table/chairs and BBQ and the harbour beyond.

Throw open the glazed doors and let the sun shine in whilst you plan your day ahead.

The spacious first floor living area is spacious with comfy sofas and a formal dining table.

The adjoining balcony (table and chairs) is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the ever changing river scene just outside. The View is in a superb location, with a variety of restaurants and bars within walking distance and is popular with walkers, paddle boarders, swimmers and the sailing community.

Nearby the pedestrian foot ferry will take you to Mount Edgcumbe in Cornwall in under 10 minutes!

Regular water taxis run from the adjacent Royal William Yard to the historic Barbican and The National Marine Aquarium. Just a short drive away is the famous Plymouth Hoe which holds many events throughout the year including the British firework competition and is home to Smeaton’s Tower, The Royal Citadel and the Tinside Lido, an open air swimming pool.

Perfect for city breaks or a traditional holiday, with so much to do and see nearby, the whole family is sure to enjoy their stay at The View.

There are also boat trips around the Sound and Naval dockyards, watersports at the Mountbatten Centre and the city centre shopping mall to explore.
