Whitsand Bay Fort
A Coastal Resort With 100+ Years of Documented History.
Partnered with English Heritage, let our resort take you back 100 years, to when it was an original coastal defence, protecting the principle Naval Bases of Plymouth. Explore our unforgettable Fort architecture where original cannons decorate the lining of the cliffs. Carefully tread the old, damp tunnels and read the hand-carved messages in the walls.
Since 1955 we have taken tremendous love and care into the restoration of historic artefacts and architecture throughout our resort, with many historians coming from near and far to relish at the unique location in which Whitsand Bay Fort sits.
Whitsand Bay Fort gives you the chance to step back in time to a different age. As our name suggests, we are situated on the grounds of a coastal fort that was built to help see off a potential attack from the French Navy during the ‘Napoleonic’ age. In operation with different Regiments of the Royal Artillery for over 65 years.
