One of our most recent regeneration projects is Adventure Prospect. Formerly known as the ‘Shifting House’, it was first built in 1898-1899 to accommodate munitions workers changing into the special clothing that they wore when working in the gunpowder magazines. Now, the cottage is a charming 2- bedroom retreat with a log fire and stunning harbour views.

Residents have the attractions of Priddy’s Hard on their doorstep, with the Explosion Museum and Powder Monkey Brewery and Tap House within walking distance.

The AirBnB reviews speak for themselves, why not book yourself a break in this unique setting?
