23 Mills Bakery is a two bedroom apartment situated within the popular Royal William Yard, a cluster of Grade I and II listed buildings recently converted into a spectacular venue for living, working and having fun.
There is a selection of international cuisine available within the walls of the development, including French, Italian, South American and Asian. Booking is vital as these fantastic restaurants are extremely popular. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage Deli and Canteen is also now open providing delicious food made from local products throughout the day.
There is also a delightful bakery on site, which bakes daily on site the most incredible variety of breads, delicious cakes, cheese cakes and biscuits as well as serving homemade granola for breakfast. The bakery serves meals as well as being a place to shop and has its own onsite microbrewery.
As well as all these amazing eateries, we have the superb gallery of resident artist Martin Bush and other art exhibitions of different artists work staged throughout the year, outdoor theatrical performances and cinema on the green, and once a month farmer's market supported by local growers and producers.
The development 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, with some stunning cycle routes, and bikes can be hired from the new Royal William Yard cycle hub.
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, 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. This service operates daily from 10am – 6pm, 1st May until 30th September, and offers passengers a unique water perspective of Plymouth's famous coastline. Departure times are hourly (on the half hour from the Barbican and full hour from Royal William Yard).
If you fancy a dip then the Art Deco Tinside Lido is within easy reach, 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 or take a drive over the Tamar and discover the hidden Cornish villages of Cawsand and Kingsand with their quaint old streets and family beaches.
