Discover Holiday Cottages in Devon's Large Naval Port, Plymouth
The Naval port of Plymouth is rich in Maritime history and is scattered with its nautical references and provides a lovely, historic coastal location from which to explore South Devon and Cornwall. The Pilgrim Fathers set sail to America from here and it remains one of the UK’s main navel ports offering sites of great navel vessels leaving and entering Plymouth Sound. The beautiful port and harbour are just a few reasons to why Plymouth is up there in the top ten destinations for a family friendly holiday. The city is filled with sites and attractions that you can enjoy from your holiday cottage for a week or two. Self catered Holiday cottages within Plymouth are scattered along the streets and waterfront of this fine city and each one is as stylish as the last. You can try your hand at sailing or rowing and get out onto the water for yourself and explore the neighbouring coves and beaches such as Cattedown or Turnchapel. Or board Cremyll Foot Ferry and take a slightly more relaxing route to the equally attractive areas surrounding Plymouth.
Further afield, the wilds of Dartmoor offer an immense adventure playground for hikers, mountain bikers and sightseers, while along the coast there are many small coves, beaches, creeks and small fishing villages just waiting to be explored.

Plymouth itself is situated in between the mouth of the two rivers Plym and Tamar, which join together at the Plymouth Sound, which is the local Plymouth bay, fondly known as ‘The Sound’. With brilliant views all the way out to sea, it’s no wonder The Sound is a popular area for locals and tourists alike; creating a warm, inviting atmosphere filled with faces from all over the country.
Away from the clear waters and further inland you can find many more attractions such as The Barbican, which is a long strip of buildings overlooking the Sutton Harbour Marina and the Queen Anne Battery. Aside from being in a spectacular location, The Barbican is also a hive of boutiques and cafes, which are always alive with people and music and, especially at night, it’s lit up with lanterns and fires providing an almost French atmosphere as you sit alongside the harbour and relax in the warm evening.
During the day there are many other inland attractions such as the majestic Royal William Yard, a Grade One listed building formally used as the naval boating house, or the fabulous Mount Edgcumbe, a giant fort of gardens and mystical forests that can take your breath away for sure. Plymouth holds so many treasures that it’s worth so much more than a simple day trip; make it a holiday to remember with the maritime monument that is Plymouth and a warming holiday cottage.
