The Experience

It’s surpringly quiet up here – and swish, with gleaming wooden floors, an enormous sitting room with handmade Elm tables, a Norwegian settle and two big sofas. The balcony off this room has the grand view but there’s another smaller one off the bedroom overlooking rooftops. Both terraces have pretty pots of olives and lavender and both are good spots for gazing. There’s also a communal garden which tumbles down to the river and is perfect for a picnic.

The kitchen is along one wall of the sitting room and has everything you need for holiday cooking – you’ll also find a bottle of English wine. You get a bathroom each, one with shower and the other with a bath. Walk to everything including Royal William Yard, a 19th-century victualling yard now converted and with a selection of restaurants and wine bars.

Return to watch the lights of the city twinkling beneath you and enjoy a peaceful night on a vi-spring mattress.

We have just returned from a six night break and 153 is most definitely the best self-catering accommodation we have ever stayed in - beautiful furniture and furnishings and immaculately presented. Extensive views over the river and countryside and very quiet.

Nick and Allison, Esher, Surrey

Beautiful apartment, stylish and comfortable! Loved the stunning views across the River Tamar to Cornwall, enjoyed SW path walks and taking lots of different ferries across the Sound with fun evenings at Royal William Yard. Would recommend!

Jackie, Buckinghamshire

We stayed here for 5 nights and we describe this apartment as one of the best we have ever stayed in! So comfortable right from the bed and linens to the soft furnishings and sofas. The cutlery and crockery and cooking implements all well thought through. We wanted for nothing! The whole block proved to be a quiet place to stay with wonderful views to boot! We strongly recommend this apartment as a base for visiting Torpoint and Newton Ferrers was an absolute joy!

Diane, Bedford

We stayed here for four nights, but could have stayed for four weeks. Beautiful apartment, wonderful views, brilliantly equipped, but really quiet. The apartment has brilliant views over the Tamar and the beautiful Mt. Edgcumbe across the water; wonderful for walks. The Royal William Yard offers nearby restaurants and a wine bar plus paths to watch the Royal Navy’s vessels leaving or returning to port. Most highly recommend.

Julia, Worcester

A crisp and modern south-west-facing base for exploring the city with its vibrant culture and maritime history. And a grand place from which to get about: Dartmoor to the north, East to Devon and west along the South West Coast Path towards Cornwall.

Nicola, Sawday's inspector

The neighbourhood

Walk to the oldest commercial bakery in the UK, Jacka, for your morning pastry - they baked the bread for the Pilgrim Father's voyage in 1620. Hire bikes - Sustrans route number 2 is on the doorstep - cycle all the way to Dartmoor. Join the South West Coast Path and head for Cornwall or hop in the car for beaches and walks in the South Hams. Saltash is a 10-minute drive for stocking up.

Peter (a viticulturist and keen sailor) used to have a 2,000 vine vineyard in Dorset where he also had Canopy & Stars guests so he's quite used to getting things shipshape for people. He also set up the Pop Up English Wine Company and is now planning to sail the coastline of Devon and Cornwall.
