Make holiday accommodation or a cottage to rent in Plymouth, Devon your home away from home

The historic town of Plymouth lies in a sheltered sound on the south coast of Devon. Full of historic and contemporary attractions, self catering Plymouth accommodation is a great base for family holidays. Merging a historic port with a vibrant city, self catering Plymouth accommodation will always provide something to thrill every visitor.

Things to do in Plymouth, Devon

There is a huge amount to see from cottages to rent in Plymouth. The Mayflower Steps, where America’s Founding Fathers left England, lie in the town, and the Plymouth Gin Distillery holds the title as England’s oldest working distillery. Tours operate throughout the year, and the National Marine Aquarium is always a hit with children. There are some magnificent displays in the Aquarium, from coral seas to seahorses.

Plymouth is a fascinating city. The city was heavily bombed during the war, and as a result, the new mixes with the old in a magically unique style. The Theatre Royal, the Crownhill Fort and the City Museum and Art gallery are excellent places from which to start unravelling the long and turbulent history of the city when staying in self catering Plymouth accommodation. Anyone with a love for shopping will be happy in a private let in Plymouth too, as the high street is backed up by two large shopping centres, the Armada Centre and the Drake Circus Shopping Mall.

If you would like to explore the coast, a great option is to take one of the many pleasure boat trips into the Plymouth Sound and up the Tamar River. You will be taken past the Royal Dockyards, home to some incredibly impressive naval frigates and submarines.

immaculate apartment

5 of 5
Immaculate apartment. Very well appointed. Meet and greet was very smooth. I managed to loose the initial email with all the details on it but the owners were very helpful when I contacted them.

short break in plymouth

4 of 5
I had planned a short stay in Plymouth to see my daughter who is at university in Plymouth. The apartment was exactly what i needed and a true home from home. A lovely welcome pack greeted myself which also included treats for my dog. Would definately recommend for anyone planning to go to this area for a few days

Views to die for!

5 of 5
This priest's house had everything we needed and more. An amazing place with wonderfully comfortable beds, luxurious bathrooms and views to die for! The work that has been carried out by Barry and his team have transformed this house into a glorious place to stay. We spent a lot of time in the conservatory as the views are panoramic,peaceful and beautiful. We would love to come and stay again!
