    The balcony was an added bonus. Given the thick granite walls it is very quiet but don't expect good mobile reception or wifi in the bedrooms. You need to be careful getting there. Milbrook village is a nightmare when it's busy and Satnav won't direct you to the property and be very careful as it will direct you along inappropriate roads. However, google maps will, so look before you leave, and it is well sign posted off the main road to Cremyll. The last mile or so is a typical single track road but thankfully not very busy. The parking is a bit tight as well. Unloading was a bit of a nightmare but you can park temporarily round the back which makes things much easier. Fort Picklecombe is unique and we enjoyed our stay.

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.
