About Arthur Fairfax Luxmoore
Fairfax and Lucy Luxmoore live a few streets away from Haddington House Apartments. Fairfax is an ex farmer and Lucy is a part time music teacher and runs several choirs. We both enjoy bicycling and walking on Dartmoor. We have recently sold our 24ft Vivacity but have kept the dinghy for exploring. We will probably buy a canadian canoe instead.Our favorite beach is Whitesand Bay where we have swum this summer despite the weather and picked mussels off the rocks. We are both Friends of Devonport Park and help with events and gardening. Lucy runs the Community choir and a boys choir at Devonport High School. We love Devonport as there is so much going on, we can reccomend walks, restaurants and day visits for visitors. Suzanne, mother of 2 teens, has helped us with changeovers for 6 years.

Why Arthur Fairfax Luxmoore chose Plymouth
Plymouth is a jewel among Britian’s cities. Within half an hour you can be out on the water, or up on the moors. The new vision for Plymouth’s waterfront embraces a mixed use principle, with people living over the top of shops and offices, creating a vibrant round-the-clock city, with cafes, bars and restaurants. A tour, starting on the east side at Sutton Harbour with Queen Anne’s Quay and the new Fish Market, goes through the historic Barbican with its stylish restaurants and along the Hoe where you’ll see the glorious Art Deco of Tinside Lido overlooked by the Citidel and Smeaton’s Tower. Plymouth is a city forged by the spirit of discovery and as you will discover for yourselves, the list of famous and heroic explorers.
What makes this Apartment unique
Finding your way around couldn’t be easier. There are excellent train and bus links to all areas. An hour's train journey in either direction takes you to Torquay, with its palm-fringed beaches, or Truro in the heart of Cornwall. Alternatively, the scenic and local Tamar Valley line runs through Devonport station, very close to the apartments. The car ferry to Torpoint is the quickest way to access the lovely coastline of south-east Cornwall, while the Cremyll foot ferry at Stonehouse takes you to the beautiful country park of Mount Edgecombe.

Not a good place, I do not recommend
First of all the area is really bad, this is one of the worst area of Plymouth, clearly not a place to stay
Furthermore the people that are renting appartments in the same house are for the majority not a pleasure to live with. Really often I didn't felt in security because some neighbors were screaming in the middle of the night, coming to knock to my door at any hours of the day or night, childs screaming really often which is really disturbing if you want to work.
In addition the Wifi was working only 20% of the time.
The only good point was the housekeeping, the woman in charge of it is lovely and is doing a really great job, but it's not sufficient to have a pleasant time.
In another hand, the owner has been rude to me sometimes without no real explainations.
To conclude I would not recommend at all this appartment, I've been there for 5 months so I had time to experience what nobody should.
Jean Gabriel, you have never complained to me over the period that you were in Drake in fact you told me many times that you were happy in Drake. Unfortunately you left your bag of rubbish outside the apartment on the second floor several times and I warned you that it made the whole house smell. I took it down for you when you were leaving and put it in the dustbin for you.as the smell as usual was overpowering. I had taken the bags down for you several times and so had my wife and Isobel.
I came over and sorted the internet several times but it appeared usually that the internet provider was having problems in the area several times. The internet is used by 6 apartments and it can be that one apartment is downloading a lot of material, films etc. We are putting in a device that will enable us to see if one apartment is downloading a lot and causing other internets to run slower .
There were very few children in the house during the time you were resident . You did not complain to me about them , did you complain to Isobel? If you had done I am sure she would have sorted it for you!
I understand that you had an unsatisfactory meeting with a young mother and her children on the first floor . Unless you had asked them to your apartment on the second floor they would not have knocked on your door unless invited, there have certainly not been complaints from other apartments.
Haddington rd is a tree lined street in Devonport with Victorian Captains houses that were built after the Napoleonic wars with France. The houses are in a Conservation area and requests have been made for them to be listed. The street is a jewel in this part of Devonport , home to the Royal Navy,, after surviving much of the bombing in Plymouth during the Second World War. Within a few minutes walk is Devonport Park which has an award for excellence. I am suprised that you were unable to appreciate it as you could have walked through it on the way to your apprenticeship job in Stonehouse.
You asked me to provide you with a reference during your stay in Drake which I did gladly and you were very grateful. You also left early without giving Home and Away proper notice which made it difficult for us to rebook before 20 June when you had agreed to leave.
