Location description from owner

The England region

Plymouth enjoys a fantastic location, situated on the spectacular South West coastline, sharing borders with Cornwall to the west and the rugged beauty of Dartmoor to the north. As well as the coastline, with it's myriad of picturesque fishing villages, and the spectacular scenery of the moors, destinations such as the Eden Project, the English Riveria and Cornwall's north coast beaches are all within an hour's reach. Enjoy river cruises on the Tamar or Dart, go surfing in Newquay, dine at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen overlooking Watergate Bay or one of Rick Stein's restaurants in the charming fishing village of Padstow. Explore the region that inspired writers such as Daphne du Maurier and Agatha Christie.

“Good location, clean, but disapointing insome aspcts.”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2013

Very good central location. Clean and tidy. Cooker hot plates useless, no heat at all from them. The roof terrace has no views apart from surrounding buildings and no privacy even if you were tempted to use it. There is no views out from downstairs windows, just surrounded by walls. Thank goodness we had a week of perfect weather, would have been a bit depressing being stuck indoors. We also had trouble with the shower temperature altering all the time.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, although I'm a little disappointed that you didn't contact me during the stay regarding the problem you experienced with the hobs - I would have been more than happy to help. I checked all the hot plates individually after your departure and all of them were fully working (I tested them by using each to boil a saucepan of water and they all managed this quickly and without any problems). I can only think that perhaps the unit had not been turned on at the wall. Thank you for letting me know about the shower. I hadn't had any complaints before but I will also investigate this further. Regarding the apartment's surroundings, I'm actually very proud of its location. It couldn't be better located for the excellent tourist attractions, restaurants and bars that the city offers. You are right in the heart of the Barbican and just a few minutes from Plymouth Hoe. Granted the apartment has other buildings around it but I consider this a huge benefit as the private courtyard gives you peace and security while not meaning you have to compromise on your location. The apartment has plenty of windows and lets in a good level of light.

“Hidden gem in the heart of the Barbican”

Reviewed 30 May 2013

So glad we found this fantastic little cottage right in the centre of the best part of Plymouth - The Barbican. A stone's throw from the beautiful waterfront, loads of pubs and restaurants and a short walk from the Hoe. Really felt we made the most of the weekend because we were so close to everything. And Matt was kind enough to pick us up from the train station! perfect. Would definitely stay here again when we return to Plymouth. Thanks Matt!

“Great location, comfortable and well equipped”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2013

Stayed here for Easter long weekend - right in the middle of the barbican area with lots of restaurants, shops and the like - and close to the main shopping area of Plymouth The place has every convenience and nicely furnished and a very functional kitchen etc. Located in a gated block for anyone worried about security Owner Matthew is very easy to deal with and genuine Would definitely stay here again!!!
