    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Drakes View is a two bedroom second floor apartment located on the Hoe in historic Plymouth. It is situated in one of the most prominent Regency terraces yet has been recently refitted to a high standard to provide high quality self-catering facilities.

    The lounge and second bedroom have uninterrupted views over The Hoe, Drake’s Island, Plymouth Sound, the Breakwater and out to sea. On a clear day, you can see the Eddistone Lighthouse on the horizon. From the back, particularly from the kitchen, roof top views of Plymouth give way to a distant view of the moors.
    All of the attractions and facilities of central Plymouth are just a short walk away. There are over 20 restaurants and 8 major attractions within half a kilometre of the front door, and many more within the city as a whole.
