"Amazing views and great property"
We stayed at Mount Batten House for my sons Passing out parade in Plymouth. The house is lovely and the views over the water where amazing. The owner was very helpful and gave us information on the best way to the Navy base. The property is well furnished and Simon left a bottle of wine which we enjoyed on our first night. We will be back and spend a little more time exploring the area. Food at the local restaurant which was only four doors away was also fantastic. Thanks for a great break. Caroline

"Wonderful property - clean and really comfortable"
Should have written this review immediately after our stay, but time has whizzed by. Staying at Mount Batten over the last New Year was the wonderful getaway that we needed after the hustle and bustle of a busy Christmas at home. We were lucky to enjoy fine weather most days and wished we'd taken the opportunity to do more of the coastal walks. The beach is conveniently just two minutes walk. The beds were soooo comfortable - unusual I find for a holiday home - we will definitely go back some time. Thank you.

"An excellent property in an ideal location."
We have just had a great week at Mountbatten House with our 2 teenaged children. The location is ideal for exploring the local area, the views across to Plymouth are superb and if you enjoy walking, the walk around the coast to Bovisand (via the cafe at Jennycliff) is not to be missed. Mountbatten breakwater is a 5 minutes walk away, a great place to watch the ships and ferries in Plymouth Sound, and for looking back across at The Hoe. Also nearby is the water taxi across to The Barbican, from which there is a short walk into the town centre. There are plenty of supermarkets and smaller shops within a short drive, and as well as The Bridge restaurant a couple of minutes walk away (excellent for breakfast), there are many places to eat and drink within a short drive, or a hop across the water taxi. The house is very comfortable, spotlessly clean and with everything we needed for the week. The owner left a bottle of wine as a welcome, and in addition he provided all the things that are sometimes annoyingly missing from a holiday let - toilet rolls, bin liners, tea towels, washing up liquid (all the things I usually forget to pack!). The windows in the lounge opened onto a balcony, literally overlooking the marina, and it was great to be able to sit and watch the boats bobbing about in the water - very relaxing. And as a Plymothian ex-pat myself, I couldn't get enough of the wonderful view! There are a lot of stairs in the property, not an issue for us at all, and there were safety bannisters, but this may be an issue for anyone not good with stairs. I love this house, I will definitely stay there again, and having stayed in various properties in the Plymouth area, this is my favourite.
