The Royal William Yard is one of the most significant groups of historic military buildings in England, and a remarkably complete early 19th century industrial complex. Constructed between 1826 and 1835, the Yard contains the largest collection of Grade I listed military buildings in Europe. Designed by Sir John Rennie as both a factory and supply depot for the victualling requirements of the entire Royal navy Fleet, they form a significant part of Plymouth’s maritime and naval heritage.

The officer’s residences Nos. 1 and 2 were built c. 1830-1832 to provide accommodation for the Superintendent of Stores and the Chief Clark. The two buildings remained in residential use until 1992. Following the closure of the MoD’s site, the Yard was acquired by the South West Regional Development Agency who regenerated the building for use and their own offices.

Overlooking the open grassy spaces of the green, the newly converted Residence One combines unique original features and a stunning secret garden with a spectacular sea view.

We’ve taken the time, care and attention to use traditional craftsmen and building methods to bring the house back to its former glory, full of Georgian features.

The collection of 14 stylish, simply appointed bedrooms are filled with periodic architectural charm and are the ideal place to relax after a day exploring the stunning Royal William Yard and the coast beyond.
