Room Descriptions

Turnchapel is a very popular location with a local marina providing access to the Cattewater and Plymouth Sound, and there are numerous restaurants and pubs. From the property you can walk to the beach, catch the water ferry to work and feel part of the city whilst also being on the coastal footpath. Enjoy the views over to the Hoe - and on summer evenings watch the sun go down from elevated garden. There is access to water just across the road - so use the cellar to keep your canoe in!
