The Royal William Yard is a wonderful 8-acre site situated at Cremyll Point and enjoys magnificent views up the river Tamar and across to Cornwall. Originally constructed in 1824 under the supervision of the famous architect and engineer Sir John Rennie, the magnificent array of Grade I Listed, limestone and granite buildings occupy a fabulous waterside location and are at the heart of the regeneration of both Stonehouse and Plymouth. The Navy withdrew from the Yard in 1992 leaving these elegant and towering edifices which have been imaginatively regenerated by the renowned developers Urban Splash, who have an impressive record in reviving old, derelict and interesting sites. The splendid local facilities include the nearby Devils Point, the Royal William Yard itself with galleries, restaurants and a water taxi direct to the Barbican Mayflower Steps, a foot ferry to Cremyll and the Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, marina with berths available (subject to arrangements), local pubs, shops and regular public transport to the City Centre, approximately one mile distant.
"Brewhouse" is a Grade I Listed building which has been imaginatively and sympathetically converted to provide a collection of 77 high specification luxury apartments. This historic building was once capable of producing 30,000 gallons of beer per day and has also been used as a store for rum, a torpedo workshop and finally became the headquarters for the Raiding Squadron of the Royal Marines.
