Both Exmoor and Dartmoor provide wonderful walking and horse riding opportunities with breathtaking countryside, peace and tranquility.

- Very Good
We throughly enjoyed our stay, very spacious apartment. The location is brilliant right on the hoe and in walking distance to barbican & city centre. On site parking is also very handy. We stayed with my parents, my in-laws and we had two children under 3, plenty of room for all of us! The kids especially loved the space. We will definately be making this a yearly trip.
“Return to Osborne House”
Osborne House is a lovely place to stay, acres of space, a lovely feel to the property, and the opportunity to appreciate a property of immense character. Location is ideal within walking distance of the town centre, ferry port, Barbican and direct access to the Hoe. It offers great value for money, with no "hidden" additional charges for WIFI, Parking, evening arrival etc. Being frequent visitors to Plymouth we have found Ian to be flexible and accommodating wherever possible, which is often a quality missing in other accommodation providers. We will, of course be back soon.
We booked Osborne House for my daughter's graduation which was held on Plymouth Hoe. Couldn't have picked a better location, less than a minutes walk from the graduation marquee. The house was fabulous, very clean and spacious. The only downsides were that there was no welcome pack or toiletries in the bathroom - this would have created a perfect first impression, however it did not ruin our stay in any way. Also, the shower door is broken and the shower plug seemed to be blocked as it was overflowing. Ian the landlord was very friendly and approachable. Overall, the house was excellent and made our special occasion even more special. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay in Plymouth - particularly those wanting to be close to the hoe.
“Perfect for our requirements did not want to leave”
Osborne House is a lovely converted appartment we had 5 adults and a baby, we had every amenity required, but with only being 5ft the mirrors were too high to see in. This is the only negative thing I can find to say about the beautiful appartment. It was central to all our requirements, lovely & spacious right near the register office (we were in plymouth for a wedding) 100yrd from the Hoe. Ian the owner could not have been more helpful or accomodating. We had a fantastic time at Osborne House & even the sun shone!!
I have stayed in all the apartments in this complex and all I can say is that they are great. They are all finished to a very high standard. Living rooms are comfortable with plenty of space, sofas and table and chairs. They all have large flat screen tvs and wi-fi. The kitchens are well appointed with everything you will need. Bathrooms are also good, some with jacuzzi baths, and some with huge powerful showers. Bedrooms are all large with twin or kingsize beds with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. All the rooms are very spacious and light, some with a view of the Hoe and the sea.
“Perfect Week in Plymouth”
I would highly recommend Osborne House. Spacious accomodation in an excellent location next to Plymouth Hoe.
“Exceptionally well appointed apartment”
An absolutely super apartment decorated to an exceptional standard -spacious and superbly presented -would highly recommend for a stay in Plymouth with a view of the Hoe
