Overlooking Clovelly Bay Marina at Mount Batten, this superb holiday property is a stylish townhouse on the waterfront, with the superb Mount Batten Watersports and Activities Centre, and Plymouth Sailing School right on your doorstep. The property boasts two balconies, one off the kitchen/dining room on the ground floor, and the second balcony off the living room on the first floor. Both are fabulous spots in which to sit and watch the boats coming and going. The kitchen is very modern and bold, the bedrooms cool and contemporary and the bathrooms well-equipped with the master bedroom en-suite featuring a spa bath. This is a lovely home for a family wanting to enjoy the local facilities. It isn’t just a summer destination but a great base for winter weekends or a spring break.
In Mount Batten there are two waterside pubs and a little beach, and Bovisand Beach with cafe and parking is just a 5-minute drive away. The South West Coastal Path runs along the front of the property, and you can walk to Turnchapel, which is a little historic riverside village, or along the cliff path to Jennicliffe, with its popular cafe perched on the headland with the most spectacular views across Plymouth Sound to Mount Edgecumbe in Cornwall on the far side of the bay. From Mount Batten you can catch a little water taxi across to Barbican, with its cobbled streets, restaurants, bars and shops. Here you will find the marine aquarium and the historic waterfront area of Plymouth Hoe, with its iconic outdoor swimming pool lido and panoramic views.
