Edgcumbe Guest House occupies a beautiful Victorian property which has been modernized and constantly refurbished to very high standards whilst retaining many original features. The house would originally have housed a well to do family who would have had servants.
We are located in an enviable position adjoining Plymouth Hoe and the sea front. All amenities are close at hand. The city centre is a 10 minute walk away. The ancient Barbican is a 15 minute stroll and is the oldest part of Plymouth. There are cobbled streets and narrow lanes housing gift and antique shops, art galleries and jewellers to name but a few.
The National Marine Aquarium is also on The Barbican. It is the largest aquarium in England and houses thousands of different species of fish and marine life. It is from The Mayflower Steps on Plymouth's Barbican that the Pilgrim Fathers set sail in 1520 to found New Plymouth in America. Their ship, The Mayflower, had set sail from further along the English coast but suffered damage in a storm so put into Plymouth for repairs before again setting sail across The Atlantic Ocean.
Plymouth Hoe is where Sir Francis Drake played his legendary game of bowls before defeating the Spanish Armada. When told the Armada had been spotted on the horizon, he famously said that he had time to finish his game of bowls and then defeat the Armada. The truth is that the tide was against him and he couldn't put to sea until the tide changed.
