Full Property Description

23 Mills Bakery is a two bedroom apartment full of original features situated within Royal William Yard, an impressive grade 1 listed building.

Within the development there is a cafe/bar serving breakfast and meals right through until the late evening, an Italian restaurant and a bakery, serving handmade bread, pies, cheese cake and hearty home cooked meals. The Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage Deli and Canteen is now open providing delicious food made from local products.

The development also includes an art gallery and benefits from regular passenger ferries to The Barbican (seasonal). A short walk away, there is also the Cremyll foot ferry that will take you to Mount Edgcumbe. The Hoe is an historic scenic viewpoint where you can enjoy the amazing views across the Bay or visit Smeatons Tower with many interesting activities.

There is a water taxi linking the Royal William Yard with the historic Barbican. This 12-seater service operates daily from 10am – 6pm, 1st May until 30th September, and offers passengers a unique water perspective of Plymouth. Departure times are hourly (on the half hour from the Barbican and full hour from Royal William Yard) with a cost of £2.50 for adults and £1.50 per child.

The Barbican is close by where you can meander through the cobbled streets with individual specialty shops, craft workshops and art galleries. Many local artists have won global reputations, including Beryl Cook, Lee Woods, Brian Pollard and the late Robert Lenkiewicz. There are also many interesting old pubs and cafes to visit.

If you fancy a dip then the Art Deco Tinside Lido is close by, and the beaches of Bigbury and Whitsand Bay are just a short drive away. Why not catch the Cremyll ferry across to Mount Edgcumbe Park and discover the hidden Cornish villages of Cawsand and Kingsand with their quaint old streets and family beaches?

Plymouth is a vibrant waterside city, benefiting from major investment with plenty to entertain everyone from arts and crafts, to stylish cafes, bars and restaurants, quaint tea rooms and traditional fish and chips. High end shops and unique boutiques are found within both the main city shopping area and the recently completed Drake Circus shopping mall.

Plymouth Pavilions is the South West’s largest entertainment, concert and leisure venue and holds many events throughout the year including comedians, orchestras, rock and pop groups and sporting events to name a few, there is also an ice rink an swimming pool with wave machine, Jacuzzi and flumes.

There is also a wealth of heritage and history to explore - stand where Sir Francis Drake played bowls as the Spanish Armada approached, enjoy a tour at the historic Plymouth Gin distillery, or maybe visit the National Marine Aquarium - now the largest aquarium in Great Britain with the deepest tank in Europe. While in town, why not take in a performance at Plymouth Theatre Royal, the UKs largest and best attended regional producing theatre.

Travel links from Plymouth are excellent with a high speed travel link to London, Paddington, Plymouth City airport with daily connections around the UK, and an excellent road system via the Devon Expressway linking directly into the M5.

“Lovely apartment, excellent location, great holiday, we loved every minute of it. Having so many restaurants within walking distance was wonderful too.” Caroline Smith, September 2013
The Royal William Yard is a fantastic location, full of history with beautiful views over the Tamar estuary. We stayed in the Bakery building which is a mix of historic and modern, something we loved about the place. The conversion from victualling yard to apartments has been done in such a way as to preserve the historic nature of the building whilst providing modern and appealing properties in which to live and still feel part of a community. The complex has a welcoming feel to it with direct ferry to the Barbican, The Seco Lounge restaurant, and 24 security on site (who are very friendly and helpful) . Overall this is a beautiful place and we can't wait to return, only wish we could afford to buy a property here. Hope others have a great stay here. Sharon and Pete Allen. July 2011.
