    “Fort Picklecombe was a great place to stay - very interesting and the views were fab.”

    The apartment had a few issues - it smelt of damp, clearly a problem in this old building, on the ground floor at any rate. Also there was a problem with lots of little flies. I don't know where they came from but they were ever present in the apartment. Having to be out by 9am on day of departure was not great. Apart from that it was comfortable and quite a nice apartment.

The property

In Fort Picklecombe, a smart ground-floor apartment with spectacular out-to-sea views of Plymouth Sound and along the coast: wonderful timeless views of passing shipping, seal and dolphin sightings and ever-changing skies.

All newly renovated in 2017 with tiled floors throughout.

Living room with smart TV/DVD and floor-to-ceiling glazed doors to balcony (tables/chairs) and those views.

Kitchen (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, freezer, larder fridge, electric oven/induction hob) with dining bar/stools and smart TV.

Three bedrooms, all with smart TV - two double (access to one side of bed only), one with en suite shower-room (suite), and a snug bunk room (for alternative sleeping) with porthole windows to living room.

Bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

Shutters protect the windows during rough weather in winter months and when closed they block the view.

A fine place to escape from the busy world. Fort Picklecombe: built in 1848 to protect Plymouth, this fort is now converted into excellent apartments.

Stunning views of sea/shipping (sometimes warships).

Long drive leads to it.

Kingsand/Cawsand, 2 miles; Mount Edgcumbe Park, ¼ mile by Coast Path; pedestrian ferry to Plymouth, 2 miles; car ferry, 10.
