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 with nautical features and outstanding and ever-changing views across bustling Plymouth harbour to 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, barbecue), 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.

We enjoyed a wonderful week at Drift Cottage, a lovely converted pilot boat house. The property was very clean and had everything we needed. The location is superb, fabulous views day and night, even in February. The village has two dog friendly pubs and they both do great food. The South West coast path is right on the doorstep and we enjoyed some great walks. We would love to return again soon. It’s the first time booking a holiday through Helpful Holidays, very impressed with the service, very friendly and easy to book, would definitely use them again.
