Shipwrights - Turnchapel, Plymouth home swap

Our home was built just before 1800 and was built as a public house the `Shipwright Arms`, the pub closed in the 1970s. It is a 3 storey terrace town house, with well proportioned rooms and a samll courtyard garden.

About the location

Turnchapel is located by the sea on the edge of Plymouth, with a view over Plymouth Sound towards the historic Barbican and Plymouth Hoe. We`re on the edge of the city and it`s an easy 10 minute walk to the coastal path (which has stunning views as you walk to sandy beaches). The city is close by and the best way to get to Plymouth is via water taxi - a 15 minute walk. We are also connected well by regular buses. Plymouth lies on the border of Devon and Cornwall and within 30-40 minutes drive in either direction there are beautiful beaches and coast to visit. Dartmoor is also a 30 minute drive away. Turnchapel itself is a waterfront village with 2 pubs and within a short walk there are 3 more pubs to stop by. We have 2 canoes and 2 paddle boards in the garage which you can use. There is a small beach in front of the Clovelly pub which you can launch from. It is also possible to cycle up to Dartmoor and the historic market town of Tavistock on a 15 mile traffic-free cycle route (you need to do the first half mile on a very quiet road from the house).
