Located near the famous Barbican area of Britain’s Ocean City


The Craft House is an independently run hotel and licensed bar.  We are just a stone’s throw away from one of the most breathtaking views Plymouth has to offer, the beautiful Plymouth Sound – a stunning view you are likely to never forget!  


Here, we do our very best to primarily source regional products including craft beers, ciders and spirits straight from their wizardry creators! As such, our drinks labels are likely to change, due to most of them being made in small batches, but this is all part of the fun of trying new things! : )

Built in 1879​


The Craft House has been lovingly refurbished, whilst retaining many original features to highlight the impressive traditional craftsmanship of its day… these are really quite special and provided us with the inspiration for our hotel’s name.  


At the Craft House we hope to inspire our guests and visitors by celebrating many of the exciting and talented local craftspeople, and their workshops, in Plymouth and the surrounding areas.  There is a whole host of crafts and experiences available, including glassmaking, willow-weaving, ceramics, metalwork, foraging, baking, cocktail making, haberdashery and many, many more.  


Here at The Craft House our aim is for you to relax, make yourself at home, explore our fabulous city and create some great memories along the way. We hope to see you very soon!
