Staddon Lane is situated on the Eastern side of Plymouth Sound, long valued as a strategic vantage point to watch over the sea approach into Plymouth. The neighbouring fort was part of the defences which ring this historic naval city, but is now only used for telecommunications. The sandy coves of Bovisand Beach are situated approximately 0.9 miles away, with further beaches at Heybrook Bay and Wembury connected by the South West Coast path providing excellent walking opportunities. Staddon Heights golf club is located adjacent to the property.
The nearby suburb of Plymstock has the feel of a small town, offering primary and secondary schooling, independent shops, supermarkets (Lidl and Morrisons), cricket and rugby clubs, watersports centre at Mount Batten, deep-water moorings (Plymouth Yacht Haven) health centre and library. The city centre of Plymouth is just 5.5 miles from the property, with facilities including mainline railway station, shopping centre, department stores, restaurants, cafés, cinemas, theatres, major regional hospital at Derriford, international ferry port, independent schools, colleges and university.
