A characterful and cosy cottage located in the quaint village of Turnchapel, near Plymouth. The house, which dates back to 1780, is full of traditional features such as stone walls, wooden floorboards and exposed wooden beams. It has had a recent renovation and is flooded with plenty of natural light. On the top floor is a vaulted ceiling living room with a log burner and Juliet balcony, which offers unrestricted views over the harbour. There is also a smart TV with Apps & DVD player for cosy nights in. Downstairs, the kitchen has new integrated appliances and coffee machine, a dining area and a large terrace - perfect for alfresco dining. On the bottom floor you'll find two bedrooms, one with a full size double and the other with small double (4ft x 6ft 3) and single sofa bed. Both share a washroom and a family bathroom with separate shower and bath with toasty underfloor heating. You can also access the well-sized patio garden which is a real sun trap and the perfect spot to relax. Ample parking in two free car parks (see Notes) . Dogs welcome with fee of £15/dog.

The space
Turnchapel is an idyllic village located within a listed conservation area. The cottage has a brilliant spot right on the estuary of the river Plym, and offers lovely views on the water, the Barbicans/Hoe, Dartmoor and Mount Batten. You are located within less than 1 minute from the water, and there are 2 small beaches in the village itself. There are ample beaches all around; Bovisand is just a 15 minute drive away whilst Bantham is reachable in 45 minutes and is great for surfing. The South West Coastal Path is also right on the doorstep, providing stunning walks for hikers of all abilities.

There are two eating pubs in the village, The Clovelly Bay Inn (which has been named the best pub in Plymouth) and the Boringdon Arms, which has a pretty garden. The Clovelly Inn is quite literally 20 steps from the house and is a great spot to grab a drink. There is a cafe around the corner in the village (3 minutes walk) which offers great food and terrace seating overlooking the marina. There are two further pubs on the waterfront nearby (5-10 minutes walk) called the Bridge and The Mount Batten Bar.

The taxi boat service to the Barbicans, Plymouth City Center and Royal William Yard in the listing (£2 per trip) is a great way to access the city. It runs until 11pm every day during the summer, and until 6pm Sunday to Thursday and till 11pm Fridays and Saturdays during the winter.
