About the property

Comfy, cosy, convenient apartment in Plymouth,Devon. Situated on a quiet tree lined avenue 2.5 miles from the city centre

Ideal for a romantic break or equally good for a family holiday visit to the beautiful South West. This delightful ground floor apartment is in a Georgian house built for a sea captain in the late 1700's. The patio garden is great for a barbecue or a relaxing glass of wine.The apartment is warm and cosy with gas central heating. In addition the sitting room has a Victorian fireplace with a coal effect gas fire. There is a sofa bed, sofa, dining table and chairs, TV and broadband wi fi internet. The kitchen has all that you will need including a washing machine. In the bedroom there is a comfortable pine double bed with ensuite shower/WC facilities. Captain's Rest is also well suited as a corporate short term let. There is unrestricted on street parking. Captain's Rest is situated on a quiet tree lined avenue in a residential area on the west side of Plymouth. 2.5 miles from the city centre and 1.2 miles from the new Plymouth Life Centre. With easy access to Cornwall via the Torpoint car ferry or the Cremyll passenger ferry to beautiful Mount Edgecombe it is the ideal base for exploring the area. Local shops and the beautiful Devonport Park are a short walk away. Small dogs are welcome by arrangement but please ask.

About Lee Higgins

I have lived and worked in the South West of England for many years and enjoy the beautiful outdoor life and surroundings.

Lee Higgins purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Lee Higgins chose Plymouth

Captain's Rest is situated on the edge of Stoke village just a 5 minute drive to the centre of Plymouth.

The lovely Devonport Park is within a 5 minute walk and it's just a short drive or walk to the Torpoint ferry giving access to Cornwall.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Lovely! Compact & Cosy, everything at your finger tips!”

My two adult daughters & I had a lovely two night stay in this ideal, fully equipped flat. Captains Rest was the perfect choice. We had everything we needed to go out exploring for the day then come in for the evening to cook our meals & chat around the table. Complimentary wine was a bonus. Thank you Lee for being in phone contact & directing us.

Highly recommend Captains Rest, I am so pleased we found you.

“A Tidy flat, close to some fantastic Scenery”

Very pleased with the flat and with the owner who was more than happy to help with anything I needed. There is parking right outside the flat and the location means you are ten minutes from the wonderful harbourside,is great for exploring Dartmoor and so many other areas. The city centre is also quite nice.

“Arrived to a warm welcome, apartment lovely and clean .”

Well equipped, just like being at home, a lovely complimentary bottle of wine, fruit and flowers.

We expected a decent flat to stay for a couple of nights, but this place was just excellent! It was airy and light, decorated with good taste and in accordance with the era of the building, and it looked like some original features had been preserved here and there. All the furniture was comfortable and solid. While there was only one double bed, the extra foldable bed and sofa bed were comfortable enough so that the rest of us could have a good night's sleep. The semi-open kitchen added even more space and was well equipped for all our cooking needs. It was even stocked with some essential foods and snacks when we arrived, which was a very positive surprise.

The flat was very conveniently located for the Torpoint ferry for access to Cornwall, and had decent bus links to get to the city centre and elsewhere. Even the immediate surrounding areas had a few good pubs and charity shops worth a visit. Otherwise the surroundings were clean and quiet and family-friendly.

When we start planning our next trip to Plymouth, this will be the first apartment we'll look at!

Short Break from Wales

Thanks Lee for this homely 5 day respite in your property. Arriving late on a very cold evening ... to a nice warm house. Thanks for being 'on call' as we forgot the code for the keys ... and being so jovial about the whole thing. Your complimentary items really impressed us and the place was cosy, very clean and all the amenities worked perfectly. Well done ... very happy guests.
