Overview

About the property

Apartment in Wembury Point, Plymouth - In an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Apartment Is 5 Minutes Walk From Beach

The apartment is modern with a beachy feel. It has 2 bedrooms (one double that has the wet room atttached to it, and one twin), an open plan living space that is light and airy.

The apartment has underfloor heating, wifi, TV, blueray/DVD player, Bose music speaker for iphone docking, washing machine, fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher. Parking is beside the white access gate. On passing through the gate you walk through a small patio area that is fenced and secure. The outdoor area has a rattan patio table and chairs with a small BBQ. There is washing line to dry your wet clothes. Although the apartment itself does not have sea views, once you leave the building you are on the SW Coastal path and all that comes from that beautiful environment. This is the magic of the place and if you enjoy nothing more than a good walk in an unspoilt National Trust setting , you won't be disappointed. We are happy to allow dogs and we are sure they will love the walks, beaches and the sea Dogs are allowed on the beach below the house). The area is popular for walkers, kayakers and bird watchers. The villages that surround us are Wembury, Heybrook Bay, Down Thomas and Newton Ferrers. All are Charming and worth a visit (they all have good places to eat out too). Wembury has a stunning and very popular church and I am sure some of our guests will be wedding guests.

About Kerry Dunn

We live adjacent to the property in the main house with our three boys George 15, Harvey, 14 and Ollie 11. We have 3 dogs who love the walks around the coastline. Kerry and I grew up in the local area. We have both travelled, but love the setting that Wembury Point offers, so when the property came up for auction we could not let it go.

We both work in Plymouth. Kerry teaches at the local primary school and I run my own Financial services business as an independent financial adviser.

We and are very much a part of the local village community and enjoy and appreciate our special surroundings. We bought our house at auction in 2006 and knocked it down in 2011. Prior to knocking it down we were able to build what is the Annexe so we could live in it while the main build was going on. We fitted it out so it is completely self contained. We were asked many times if we would let it out,now we have moved into the main house. There is a separate entrance to the Apartment and parking directly outside. We are happy to familiarise you with walks, pubs and places to visit on arrival.

Kerry Dunn purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Kerry Dunn chose South Devon

We bought the original property to fulfil our dream of building our own house. The annexe is completely self contained with everything you need to have a relaxed break.

The location of Wembury point is on a peninsular. The only vehicle traffic is that of visiting walkers and the local bus. The mornings and evenings are therefore very quiet and peaceful.

What was the old Naval gunnery school has been closed now for over 10 years and has been bought by the National Trust. This was previously owned by the Navy. The National Trust have linked it into the coastal path network and it is a wonderful addition to the local area, especially for walkers. The area is set within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The coast directly below the Annexe is part of the Uk Marine Conservation Programme. There are numerous ornithologists that visit the area to bird watch, the Cirl Bunting being a favourite. Walks will take you to the local villages of Wembury, Heybrook Bay and Down Thomas.

Many people stay for short breaks too. The local church is very busy with weddings as the setting is outstanding, so many wedding guests stay.

What makes this apartment unique

The benefits of staying at the Annexe is there are some amazing walks, some idyllic mornings alone on the beach and rocks below. Dogs are allowed on the beach in front of the house. We have 3 local pubs all within 20 minutes walking distance and a superb local hotel (Langdon Court Hotel) which is steeped in history.

If you enjoy watersports, we are a 10 minute drive from MountBatten Watersports Centre. There are several golf courses near by.

It really is the place to come and stay if you enjoy a good walk by the coast. We are very close to the beautiful estuary with Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo. It only takes 20 minutes by car to get to the centre of Plymouth. Dining out in Plymouth is currently a real pleasure with many great places to dine out. The Barbican with all its history and more recently the royal William Yard which was originally the Naval port that has been beautifully restored with bars, restaurants and and art gallery.

Coast/Beach:

The location of the property is on the clifftops of Wembury Point. The nearest beach is a 5 minute walk through National trust pathways overlooking the panoramic Wembury Bay.

This is a really special/unspoilt location.

Beautiful appartment in great location for the coast path.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely bright modern appartment next to the owners home, but Kerry is very keen to give you your own privacy. Lots of homely touches that made us feel at home straight away. We had great communication from Kerry both before and during our stay and we were greeted on arrival with flowers, tea, coffee, biscuits, milk etc which was a really nice touch. Thank you. We agree with a previous comment that the sofa has seen better days but we thought the bed was very comfy.

It is equipped with everything you could possibly need and the icing on the cake was the super fluffy towels. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely stay in Devon

  • 5 of 5

Kerry was very welcoming and a great host throughout, nothing being too much trouble and gave us some great local tips.

The apartment is larger than the pictures suggest, very clean and tastefully decorated, lovely big sofa to relax on and plenty of space to cook and eat at the breakfast bar or table.

The property is literally a short stroll to amazing coastline which is rugged but accessible with small sandy beaches and great rock pools for the kids to explore or for fishing. Theres a good pub (The Eddystone) within walking distance with wonderful views and food.

The fact we could bring our dog was a real bonus - most local beaches are dog friendly and were generally welcome most places.

Plymouth is easily reached either by driving or via ferry from a nearby village which the kids loved and there is lots to do within a short drive away but with the local coast being so beautiful you could easily spend a week just chilling on the beach.

We would definitely stay here again!

Lovely host and fabulous walking area

  • 2 of 5

Clean and well fitted kitchen and decor. Disappointed with very uncomfortable bed and settee, very low with no support. Fresh air is pumped In through filtration in wall so no windows to open. Beware shower room has no safety rail to hold on too or soap dish . Floor very slippery. View is of owners driveway.

Owner's Response: Hello Julie, I'm so sorry the stay was not as you expected. I'm gutted as it's our first poor review. The mattress is new so I'm sorry it was not good. We've rented the property for a few years now and it's the first I've known about the floor in the bathroom being slippery. I'll look into that. I hope you had a safe journey home. Kind Regards Kerry
