About Ian Runham

I'm a retired Ex Cop who used to work in Torquay 30 Years ago.

I live in Staffordshire now with my two young daughters and Maddie the Labrador.

We get to the house as often as we can ourselves. The girls just love it so much.

We have tried to provide everything for the perfect family English Seaside beach holiday. We regard our home as offering the best value in Torquay.

We have built family memories here which will last a lifetime !

Hopefully you will have the opportunity to do the same.

Come and Enjoy it to - You've probably earned it.

Ian Runham purchased this house in 2005

Why Ian Runham chose Torquay

I fell in love with Meadfoot Beach Torquay over 30 years ago now.

It's the closest thing to perfect summer holiday location I know.

Torquay is included in a poem by Blake and he writes...The Bluest Bay in all the world, If I could tell but half of the lovlieness of this place you would be here at once.

It changes its appearance everyday so every single visit is unique. It's captivating blue waters and a freshness to the air. Honestly its life affirming stuff. I never get tired of it and hopefully you will enjoy it to.

What makes this house unique

Its a great location, being only a very short stroll to the beach. We are about half a mile over the hill to the Harbourside Area with its Bars Cafes Restaurants.

The Hot Hub has always been our most appreciated feature, but we offer the whole package. All lines all Towels All utilities included in the price.

A full Sky Tv Package and Unlimited Infinity Broadband for those who like to keep in touch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed for a week with visiting friends.

Great location, right near the beach. The landlord and everyone else involved were extremely polite and helpful.

I couldn't ask for any more. A +++++++++++++++++++

Great for a base in Torquay- close to town and also the beach

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a hen do- found the location perfect, nice walk into town or to the beach.

The house itself is great, and was spotlessly clean on our arrival. We felt the house needs lots of little DIY jobs completed that appear to have been the case for a while eg. Sink blocked, shower parts coming off walls, freezer door broken, bed slats broken- general wear and tear, but makes a difference to the quality of what is a beautiful house. Our biggest disappointment was the hot tub- couldn’t use on our first night as needed to heat up and only increases by a degree an hour! Frustrating but couldn’t be helped if it had just been cleaned for our arrival. Also only one side of the jets worked, meaning it was only really ok for two people at a time - I contacted Ian about this but did not hear back regarding what to do about it. I had attempted to contact on several occasions with questions leading up to the date of arrival, but often calls, voicemails and messages were not returned so it began to feel I was harassing due to lack of response.

Generally the house is very well equipped for utensils and crockery, outdoor seats (in garage) and towels etc. On the whole we loved our stay and would consider staying again as a group in Torquay, but communication with owner could be better, and general wear and tear sorted out.

Thanks for a great stay

Highly recommended property

  • 4 of 5

We booked the property for our group of 8 including 4 children. Lovely big house, plenty of room for all of us. The children particularly liked their twin room on the top floor and used it as a playroom. The owner has thoughtfully provided pretty much everything you might need and we really appreciated that. We didn’t need to bring a high chair, cot or even toys for our youngest guest as it was all there for us. The kids loved the hot tub, it was a perfect way to spend an hour on a rainy afternoon when we couldn’t go out. Well equipped kitchen, plenty of utensils and cookware. House clean, tidy and well kept. You can tell it’s a much loved holiday home. Having a family bathroom, en-suite and cloakroom perfect for our size group. Internet and Sky TV very much appreciated. Only a few minor negatives. As parents of young children we would have appreciated black out curtains in the bedrooms and traffic from the road outside could be heard in the bedrooms. But overall a really good base for our short break to Torquay. Not too far from town, walkable if you don’t mind hills! I’ve read a few negative comments on here, but personally we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the house to others particularly families

Lovely home close to Torquay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in Ian’s home, we had a few teething problems, but Ian was quick to respond and help as best he could. The house is a great size, with big rooms and comfy sofas! The hot tub is a lovely addition which we used most days! Just a few minutes walk to the beach, where we had the use of a cute little beach hut! The walk into town is easy - 10 minutes down hill, it’s the walk back which is a little more challenging!

Overall we enjoyed our stay, and with a little updating the house will be amazing.

A beautiful holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

A really well presented property. We had a great time here and would definitely recommend. Our group was two families with young children and there was plenty of room for us all. Owner was very quick to answer any questions we had.

Excellent location, fantastic amenities.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my partner, 2 year old daughter and my partners parents. The house catered for all our needs including a push chair, cot, training toilet seat, child umbrella, and more importantly plenty of toys for our little one. The location was great, just a 15 minute walk into Torquay (although coming back the steep hill was a little challenging!) the walk to Meadfoot beach is less of a gradient and easily managed with a push chair.

The beach hut is perfect for enjoying fish and chips al fresco and the Meadfoot café does a fantastic breakfast and evening menu.

The only negative I can think to say is that the dining table chairs are worn but this did not at all detract from what was a wonderful place to say.

We found the house and hot tub to be extremely clean and fresh and would not hesitate to come back again.

The host was there when we arrived to ensure we had all we needed, which included a lovely little welcome pack of wine and pizza! perfect after our 5 hours drive and very thoughtful.

The house has seen better days as also the decor was very shabby including the dining chairs where the plastic had worn away and the radiators were rusty as was the fridge, we didn't use the hot tub as it had not been cleaned from previous use the beds were extremely low as were the settees and the master was on the third floor which was not explained in the description which is difficult when you have walking problems and bad knees the garage was full of rubbish and they did provide towels hand towels and one bath towel for a family of seven the en suite shower was tiny the rail fell off when we used it the shower in the sun bath has the wrong shower had so would not stay on the bracket and windows in the bedrooms especially the double and master didn't work right
