Where you’ll be

Plymouth, England, United Kingdom

The cottage is nestled away from any roads, so the setting it utterly peaceful. You're located in the suburb of Compton, just 10 minutes north of central Plymouth. The immediate area is quiet and residential, with good bus links to the centre or you can walk in under 30 minutes.

Plymouth is known as Britain's "ocean city"- home to breath-taking views, plenty to see and do and lots of fresh, sea air. In the centre of town, you will find Drake Circus the large shopping centre. Whilst further south you will discover Plymouth Hoe. With stunning views, it’s the perfect place to spend a sunny day, enjoying a picnic on the grass or taking a dip in the art deco Tinside Lido (open during the summer months). Hoe Park or central Promenade are home to the the iconic Smeaton's Tower lighthouse, which stands at 72 foot high and offers some of the most incredible views of the city and sea. For good food, try The Waterfront for drinks at sunset, Lorenzos for Spanish Tapas and The Greedy Goose for its alfresco dining. The Dock, Rock Salt and Rockfish are also brilliant for fresh seafood dishes.

The historic Barbican and Sutton Harbour are the heart of the city's heritage with the oldest buildings and the greatest number of historical stories. Around the Barbican, a vibrant place of cobbled streets, narrow lanes and more than 200 Listed Buildings. You will also find boutique shops, galleries, pubs, cafes and restaurants. The main street of Southside Street is home to the world famous Plymouth Gin Distillery - a must visit for Gin lovers!

Another brilliant area of the city is Royal William Yard, and here you will find a number of events throughout the year: outdoor theatre productions, an open-air cinema as well as arts and crafts markets. You can even take a refreshing dip in the outdoor tidal pool, which is accessible from the Yard, before retreating to one of the independent cafes and restaurants for a bite to eat!

If you'd like to mix your time in the city with some time out, it's easy to head to National Trust's Saltram. The beautiful Georgian house is just a 15 minute drive away, and is surrounded by acres of pretty grounds that make for lovely walking! In 25 minutes drive, you can also be at Bovisand Beach: a real gem. Located within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is popular with locals, families and walkers!
