A stunning studio apartment that has been sensitively re-developed within Plymouth's Royal William Yard, to provide a fresh yet historic living space. The development is situated on the waters edge allowing you easy access to the breathtaking views up the River Tamar and across to Mount Edgcumbe, Plymouth Naval base and Devonport.
The Bosuns Locker, The Brewhouse, benefits from 10ft windows that open out to a juliet balcony and retains spectacular features such as limestone and granite walls and exposed timber roof beams that sympathetically contrast with the ultra-modern materials to accentuate the property and its heritage.
Within the development there is a cafe wine bar, art gallery and the Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstalls River Cottage Deli and Canteen is now open providing delicious food made from local products. Regular passenger ferries run to The Barbican and if you have your own boat, there is space to moor it! A short walk away, there is also the Cremyl ferry that will take you to Mount Edgcumbe. The Hoe is an historic scenic viewpoint where you can enjoy the amazing views across the Bay or visit Smeatons Tower with many interesting activities.
There is a water taxi linking the Royal William Yard with the historic Barbican. This12-seater service will operates daily from 10am 6pm, 1st May until 30th September, and offers passengers a unique water perspective of Plymouth. Departure times are hourly (on the half hour from the Barbican and full hour from Royal William Yard) with a cost of £2.50 for adults and £1.50 per child.
The Barbican is close by where you can meander the cobbled streets with individual specialty shops, craft work shops and art galleries. Many local artists have won global reputations, including Beryl Cook, Lee Woods, Brian Pollard and the late Robert Lenkiewicz. There are also many interesting old pubs and cafes to visit.
If you fancy a dip then the Art Deco Tinside Lido is close by, and the beaches of Bigbury and Whitsand Bay are just a short drive away. Why not catch the Cremyl ferry across to Mount Edgcumbe Park and discover the hidden Cornish villages of Cawsand and Kingsand with their quaint old streets and family beaches?
