2 en-suite king size beds

One single bed on top stairs study/landing area. Please note this area is not suitable for use by young children, the elderly or infirm. Please see photos and notes below.

**Please note that this area on the top landing is an open/narrow space (please see photos). There is a balustrade of suitable height when standing but this area is dangerous if children played or stood on the bed as there is a steep fall below. The granite stairs are also not suitable for all, especially those with poor eyesight or infirm.

The apartment is therefore not considered suitable for young children, the elderly or infirm or those with disabilities. Please ask for more information if you are in any doubt.

About this location

The Devon region

The perfect base to visit the surrounding countryside and beaches.

In addition to beautiful beaches and stunning scenery, you'll find National Parks, rustic villages and towns, historic buildings and ruins, extreme sports and the best in food and drink.

Royal William Yard

The Grade 1 former Royal Naval victualling buildings are alive with cafes, bars, restaurants and galleries.

Situated adjacent to the steps leading to The South West Coastal Path to the sea front and Hoe.

A short walk to the Cremyll Ferry providing regular services to National Trust Gardens and South West Coastal Path, Mount Egdgecumbe and the Edgecumbe Arms.

With its Grade I listed former Naval buildings and stunning views over the Waterfront, Plymouth's Royal William Yard is the regions most stylish place to dine .

With the endorsement of celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall opening his new River Cottage Canteen in the listed Brewhouse building in 2011, Royal William Yard's position as a real gourmet hotspot was confirmed. The Canteen itself serves up a delicious menu of locally sourced, sustainable produce and also features a deli stocked with a fantastic range of ingredients to take home with you.

For al fresco dining, Royal William Yard can't be beaten - whether its Italian cuisine or quality pub grub, everything tastes better when eaten outdoors looking out over the water.
