The Penthouse

A cosy yet well-proportioned studio apartment in a Grade 2 listed Napoleonic fort with stunning panoramic views over Plymouth Sound and all the way out to the horizon.


This light and airy studio apartment has been recently refurbished and features a new integrated and fully equipped semi-open plan kitchen, lounge and dining areas with floor-to-ceiling windows that lead onto a private balcony and a semi-open plan double bedroom that can be screened off from the living area by ‘day and night’ roller blinds. The bathroom has a full sized bath with pressure shower over.

Whether you want to simply sit and enjoy the sights and sounds of the sea, snuggle up with a book or in front of the TV, or use it as a base to explore the local area, this truly is an amazingly unique place that is perfect for relaxing and unwinding at any time of year.

Built in 1860, Fort Picklecombe is on the south coast of Cornwall and was originally part of the Plymouth Harbour defences. Set between the woodlands of Mount Edgcumbe Park and the sea, it was converted into apartments in the 1970s with landscaped gardens, a private harbour and a small sandy beach.

'The Penthouse' is suitable for 1-2 people.
