The West Country / Devon region
Plymouth is situated in the South West of England in the County of Devon. The climate in the South West is generally warmer than other part of the UK.
The historical site of Plymouth Hoe should not be missed where Sir Francis Drake played his famous game of Bowls whilst the Spanish Armada approached nor should the Barbican where you will find an assortment of cobbled streets with small rustic shops and fashionable restaurants - in this area you will also find the Plymouth Gin factory which arranges regular factory tours.
The Plymouth / Wembury area
Bovisand Lodge is only five minutes drive from the Mount Batten Centre - 2 miles away, where you can arrange almost any water sport including sailing and diving. From here it only takes 4 minutes by water taxi to the Barbican in Plymouth. Boat trips around the Sound and up the River Tamar to the Naval Dockyards can also be arranged. Within 1 mile is Staddons Heights golf club with panoramic views of Plymouth Sound, open to non-residents. The nearest riding stables are at Wembury, 5 miles away and there are beautiful trails along the coastal path for leisurely walks.
Plymouth City centre by road is only six miles away; here you will find a wide variety of excellent tourist attractions including the National Marine Aquarium, Plymouth Pavilions with a fabulous leisure pool and ice rink and The Theatre Royal where regularly London West End Shows start their life. If you are feeling adventurous, try the dry ski slope or toboggan run, open all year round.
