This flat is less than 10 minutes away and easy to get to and from the centre. The flat is just to the side of the main house in the picture. It is self contained. You go in the flat then turn right up some stairs (about 12 steps) where the kitchen/diner and shower/toilet are on first floor and then another 8-10 steps to the bedroom. The bedroom is large and has two twin beds that fit together or can be apart. There is plenty of wardrobe space and cupboard/mirror. Beds are comfortable. At the floor below is kitchen/diner that has balcony that looks over Plymouth. All mod cons are provided. Lee very good and provided some milk, tea, coffee and sugar on arrival. Smart TV is good and internet very fast in all parts of flat. Space for parking outside but be aware road is narrow so have to reserve into parking space so can get out easily. We had a lovely stay and Lee was always helpful and informative. We have been there twice now and would go again. One bedroom so perfect for visiting Plymouth.
