    Seafaring Plymouth

    Life on the sea looms large in Plymouth, a town that was once the powerhouse of the British Navy. Seafood restaurants are everywhere – from chippies with battered cod to gourmet eateries with the finest snappers. Shanty pubs line the docks, their sailors now replaced with students. Aquariums and old marinas and seaside lidos all top the bill for things to do. It really is a city with one foot in the water and the other on the English South Coast. Bag your Plymouth holiday rentals to get a taste of the ocean spray this year.

    Getting wet in Plymouth

    If you've always wanted to get out on the waves to try your hand at tacking and turning the rudder, Plymouth is a fine place to begin. Yacht clubs and sailing schools seem ten a penny around the ports of the city, all ready to help you navigate the beautiful reaches of the south Devon coast. Prefer dry land? No worries. It's possible to get a flavour for the sea in the restaurants. Fish and chips are a must, of course, while other bistros will offer cooking classes and fine dining, all rooted in the ocean.

    Ships and sharks in Plymouth

    Wander the monumental parks of Plymouth Hoe and see the rejuvenated naval dockyards of Royal William Yard to get a sense of the sort of seafaring history that pervades this southern English city. Then, you're ready for slice of the wilder side of the ocean. You can dive into that at the National Marine Aquarium. It's hailed as the biggest in the whole of the UK, coming awash with shark tanks and underwater tunnels and a menagerie of curious marine beasts that go from Japanese sea nettles to seahorses to turtles.

    Plymouth's salt-washed summers

    Plymouth holiday rentals are a ticket to a stay on the English South Coast. That's all fine and dandy in the summer, when the sun's shining, showers are occasional – you hope – and temperatures sit in the low 20s. In the winter, things can get stormy and wild, with regular rains and icy mercury levels. The upshot is that the months between June and August are the best time to wander the old naval yards and see the pretty marinas that abound.

    Plymouth to the Devon AONB

    Delineated by two rivers – the Plym and the Tamar – and engulfed by a wide estuary, where the English Channel sloshes back and forth, Plymouth is a great base for exploring the southern side of Devon. In fact, the vast South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty begins right where the city ends. It's home to its own Plymouth holiday rentals, with sea views and access to sandy beaches. In total, 40 marked walking routes wiggle around the reserve, crossing cliffs and wave-bashed bays aplenty.
