The property


… tucked on the water’s edge in the heart of Turnchapel, a detached cottage dating from 1755, once a pilot boat house and now beautifully refurbished and well-equipped with nautical features and outstanding and ever-changing views across bustling Plymouth harbour towards the city from almost every room. To one side, a level lawn and very steep, narrow access (7'3" narrowest point) to parking area. To the front, a private decked area on the water (table/chairs), wonderful for alfresco meals. Steps down to pontoon and private shingle foreshore. Crabbing from the garden and nearby slipway at low tide.

Step from decked area through French windows to kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, gas hob/oven). From the kitchen, hall to double bedroom (5’ bed) with doors to decking, views and en suite shower-room (suite). Bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Snug (TV, double futon), suitable for children to play in. Stairs from dining area up to living room with TV/DVD, beams to apex, 19th cent. warship’s burner (open fire) and sliding doors to balcony with elevated view of the water. Two more bedrooms – a double with sliding doors to private balcony overlooking the water, and a small twin (limited clothes-storage space) with original ship’s cabin beds; smart shower-room (suite). Wireless music system in most rooms. A stunning, contemporary home where you can watch boats sailing past and fall asleep to the lapping waves.

This was our second visit to Drift Cottage and I'm sure it will not be our last. In all honesty I think I should give it a bad review just to stop people booking it so there are more free dates for us. It has everything you require for a perfect short or long getaway, Sea views, peace and quite if required, great pubs within a few minutes walk, nice restaurant's nearby , great walks and if you don't fancy cooking breakfast go to Jennyhill Cafe, great views and prices that are just sensible. Thank you Helpful holidays.
