About Langstone Manor
Tents, glampers, caravans, campervans, families, small groups and well-behaved dogs – yes. Noisy groups – no.
The naval port of Plymouth suffered extensive bomb damage during WW2, and for decades many dismissed the seaside town as ugly, pointing to its post-war architectural eyesores. However today Plymouth is packed with possibilities. You can tour its fabulous local gin distillery (01752 665 292), swim in the art deco Tinside lido (01752 261945), discover the underwater delights of the National Marine Aquarium (0844 893 7938), or see a top class theatre show (01752 267222). And the pièce de résistance? Plymouth Hoe; a café lined headland, offering stunning views over the bay. Take a trip to nearby Tavistock (3 miles) and see who’s performing at the Wharf an Arts & Entertainment Centre (01822 611166), a great little venue for music nights. There, the cinema links with the Meadowlands Leisure Pool in the summer holidays, so you can pop in for a swim then watch a movie. Take a cruise on the Calstock ferry (01822 833331) along the Tamar river, one of the most scenic county boundaries in Britain. Sailing times depends on the tide so be sure to check departure times in advance.
