"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.

"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.
