Where to stay at Torpoint

The Mother wants to know if there is anywhere good to stay for my passing out. She doesn't want to end up in somewhere... not so nice

It's a good job 'TMF' lives in New Yoik (or is that Chicago?) and not Pointyheadland... :shock: :wink:

While Plymouth will give you more choice (with additional travel complications) there is a small selection in Torpoint, according to Trip Advisor:

I would imagine they do a thriving trade with other families attending Passing Out Parades at HMS Raleigh, so I suggest booking early.

Tell her to stay in Plymouth, more to do when she's not attending your passing out.

Mother will be sent a book with accommodation options. There are lot of B&B's in and around the Torpoint/Antony/St John area. I've got a spare tent and room in the shed if she is desperate.

See your instructor. I'm sure if he can't recommend anywhere he will tell you were to find out.

Whole family spent a week in Harbour House when my son passed out and made a holiday of the whole thing.

I'd go for Plymouth personally. As previously stated there's more for your folks to do and see on the other days that they're here and a greater choice of places to stay.

As an aside, the oddest thing I found about the whole experience, was that you have to pay to leave Cornwall.

You don't pay to leave Cornwall if you go via the A30, bit of a roundabout way to get to the M5 though.
