GO Self-Catering in Plymouth

Self-Catering in Plymouth There is a wealth of self-catering accommodation in Plymouth that is ideal for couples, families and those travelling in large groups. So why not make the most of the city’s superb restaurants and cafés or enjoy the freedom of cooking what you really want to eat by staying in a holiday apartment or cottage.

If you’re looking for a place to stay in the heart of the city then there’s a range of apartments close to the main tourist attractions, including the Hoeside Holiday Flats [map]. Situated on Athenaeum Street just off the trendy Plymouth Hoe, there are nine modern apartments to choose from, all close to the sea front and the city centre. All the flats, which accommodate from two to eight people, are fully equipped with central heating, a fitted kitchen, and a television and video. Linen is provided free of charge with a welcome tray is offered on arrival.

Other apartments worth checking out in the city centre include the Mayflower Apartment [map] on New Street in The Barbican area of town. Boasting superb views of Sutton Harbour and the estuary, and ideally situated for business and leisure visitors, this flat is only a short walk away from Plymouth Hoe, The Mayflower Steps, the Barbican Leisure Park and an array cafes, bars and restaurants. The fully furnished flat has one bedroom, a lounge/diner, bathroom and a fitted kitchen.

For those wanting to stay in a secluded cottage away from the hustle and bustle of city life, then head out of Plymouth into the scenic countryside at Noss Mayo. Here you’ll find Mallards Cottage [map], which is situated in a row of quaint malthouse cottages that date back to the 18th century. Close to the river and only a quarter of a mile from the nearest village, this home from home consists of two bedrooms, lounge kitchen and bathroom, and caters for up to four people.

Also in Noss Mayo are the Yealm Cottages [map] on Pillory Hill, two houses that are available to let all year round. The first is The Posthouse, a four-bedroom house overlooking the River Yealm that sleeps up to ten people, while the second, The Galley, is a studio apartment that sleeps up to four people.

Both are ideally situated to explore Dartmoor National Park and the famous resort towns of Torquay, Brixham and Teignmouth, as well as Plymouth.

Set in 5,000 acres of private parkland with spectacular views of the Devon countryside, the Flete Estate Holiday Cottages [map] in Mothecombe comes complete with its own private beach. Here you can choose from a detached country house set in its own gardens that sleeps up to 12 people, Nepean's Cottage, which is hidden amongst mature trees and sleeps up to 10 people, or one of the ex-coastguard's cottages, which have views of the estuary and sleep between five and eight people. All the properties have modern amenities, including washer-dryer, dishwasher, microwave and television. Pony trekking and fishing are available nearby.

Finally, Oldaport Farm Cottages [map] in Ivybridge offers four self-catering cottages, which come highly recommended by the English Tourist Board. Located on a large sheep farm in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the cottages are close to Dartmoor National Park, the South West Coastal Path and Plymouth City. Two of the cottages sleep up to six people while the others only accommodate two people. All have fully equipped kitchens and some have four-poster beds.
