Weather was not so kind but we still had a great time. So many places to visit. Three National Trust properties and the Aquaruim in Plymouth were good options for changeable weather. Lots of lovely walks too. The house, as ever, was fantastic. Everything you could possibly want. The whole house is so well looked after by Sue and her team and the welcome goodies are much appreciated including the home made scones. Thank you Richard for another memorable holiday. Marjorie

We were greeted by Lee who kindly showed us around the appartment and told us how to get to various places of interest. The appartment was of a very high standard indeed. Very clean, tidy and comfortable. Tea,coffee, sugar and milk were there for us to use, Thank you very much, which was very nice after such a long journey. . It was very nice to have a lovely view of Plymouth from our balcony doors . Bedroom and beds were very comfortable indeed , nice and airy. Shower very good with lots of hot water. Was useful to have a car to travel about in as not many eating places or things to do within short walking distance from Appartment. However this would not stop me from revisiting or telling all our friends how good and nice the appartment was . Thank you very much for a lovely stay.
