Fabulous break! Excellent value for money!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property in October and the longer we stayed the more we loved it! It's tucked away down a quiet road and has a warm abs welcoming dog friendly pub just a few doors up ( food was gorgeous )!! We visited the Barbican and the Hoe daily so the water taxi which is approx a 15 minute walk was very handy! And the dog got to travel for free which was great ! The accommodation is spotless and very cozy and each night I slept like a log! I also have a 5 door hatchback which fits snug in te garage so for the week I was there I could lock my car away and not have to worry ( there is a free car park up the road too ) we had a fab time and are planning to stay there next year! Owners were very helpful upon booking and made several suggestions for the visit which was helpful! Highly recommended !

Lovely location

  • 3 of 5

The property is in good order and is well equipped. The two bedrooms each have nice ensuits. The cooking facilities are great. There is room for one car to park infront of the garage and the garage can also be used to park a car in. The view from the bedrooms and lounge are pleasant they look out over the water. There are steps you need to negotiate to get to the front door which is on the second level. The local pub is very nice although quite expensive for food and drinks. Access to property is ok and can be gained by two routes.There is a nice walk along the coast which starts very close to the property. Shops are a car ride away but not too far. In all we had a wonderful peaceful stay for the week.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for the month of September. It truly was a home away from home for us. In addition to the pleasant interior, the beds are very comfortable and the internet connection is excellent. Close to pubs and coastal walks, beautiful views from the windows—we will be returning in April for two weeks.

New Year in Turnchapel

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back home from our relaxing stay at Dunstone, in Turnchapel. It was a lovely break and the house was clean, warm and cosy. All facilities that you could require were in the property, it was like home from home. We enjoyed sitting chatting and watching the boats going in and out together with consuming our Christmas goodies before the next diet! The short walks nearby must have done us some good and it was warm and mild at 12 degrees although damp some times.

The villagers were very friendly and at the Clovelly Bay pub a lot saw the New Year in, the horns on the ships could be heard and it made a lovely end to the year. The village was very peaceful and quiet restored following the new year greetings. We found the Morrison's store which was very large and again had all that you would need to have a great holiday and the fillet steak and gammon from the butcher counter was excellent. I am sure that anybody wishing to stay at Dunstone would have a lovely and marvellous time, I will be going back later in the year with my family.

Wonderful house to relax

  • 5 of 5

The house was all it said it would be, and to have The Boringdon Arms so very close was wonderful, got to know the landlord quite well!

Once you've walked up the hill behind the Clovelly Inn, and found the steps around to the right down through the wood you are on the boardwalk and just a momebt away from The Bridge where you can have some refreshment if need be. But it is only about another 10min walk and you are at The Mountbatten, where you can also catch the water bus over to the Barbican at only £1.50p each.

We had fabulous weather and our car stayed in the garage the whole 3 days. It was lovely to sit on the sofa and gaze at the comings and goings in the harbour. We loved it.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We had met the owners in Lisbon in 2010, and after hearing about their place, we decided it would be a perfect addition to a trip that we were planning to the Cotswolds. We stayed in Turnchapel for a week in September 2011, and it happened to coincide with the America's Cup races. How fortunate, since we are sailors!! Turnchapel is a great location to use as a base to explore Plymouth and for touring the southwest.

The townhome was everything we expected: super clean, had all the amenties we needed (to include wifi), had a nice and scenic village feel, was quiet at night, and we even got to meet the local pets. The water taxi to Plymouth (1.50 pp) during the day was great--no need to drive and park. Plymouth was an easy walking town--great seaviews, the "Mayflower Steps" was interesting, the venue for the races was exceptional, "Platters" was a nice seafood restaurant, and "The Chancel" was a good little wine bar/restaurant. The harbor, the Hoe, and Barbican were all interesting historical places with super waterfont views. "The Bridge" in Turnchapel was also a very good restaurant. There are 2 superstores on the way to the home with "Morrison's" only 5 minutes by car. We did 3 car trips from Turnchapel. Looe, Polperro, Fowley, and Charlestown. Then, down the west side of the peninsula to St Ives, Penzance, and Falmouth. Next, Torquay, Paignton, the tiny car ferry to Dartmouth and to Torcross. Dartmouth was our favorite. We were in England after the first week in September and the weather was outstanding (blue skies in our pictures), and the tourists had subsided quite a bit. I must say, St Ives was still overrun with tourists, so we did not stay there very long.

We are so glad we stayed in Turnchapel! It was so relaxing after our day trips. Two thumbs up!!!

Thank you for opening your home to us.

Cheers,

Kim and Ed

Mount Batten
Car: not necessary

Turnchapel is a historic, conservation village on Clovelly Bay, Plymouth Sound, next to the Mountbatten marina and sailing activities centre. The village is adjacent to the beautiful South Hams, with superb coastal walks, beaches and countryside. Turnchapel has a Health and Fitness centre with a well-equipped gym, aerobics studio, squash courts and swimming pool. Two traditional real ale pubs serve food. Within easy walking distance, Mountbatten has two more restaurants and a pub. Staddon Heights Golf Club is a 5 minute drive. Plymouth city centre is easily accessible by car or bus. Alternatively, visitors can take a water taxi from Mountbatten and land at the historic Mayflower steps, in the centre of the mediaeval Barbican, with a wide selection of pubs and restaurants. Nearby Plymouth Hoe, and one of the finest waterfronts in the world, is a lovely stroll. The city has a full range of modern shopping outlets. Day trips recommended to Cornwall, Dartmoor and North and East Devon
