Fort Picklecombe was commissioned in the 19th Century by Lord Palmerston. He ordered several Forts to be built in this area which would enable them to defend Devonport Naval Base. After the War the Fort stood derelict until the 1970's when developers bought the Fort and the conversion of 103 residential apartments took place.

The magnificent coastline of the Rame Peninsula and Edgecumbe House and Park are all within easy walking distance of Fort Picklecombe. Also nearby are the renowned beaches of Whitsand Bay with its fine golden sand, excellent swimming and surfing facilities. The city of Plymouth is easily accessible via the Torpoint Ferry or the Tamar Bridge. The Cremyll Ferry, a regular foot-passenger services, runs from Plymouth to Mount Edgcumbe with a second ferry running during the summer months from the Barbican in Plymouth to Cawsand Beach.
