About the property

A one bedroom first floor apartment overlooking the front of the building

The Muntham Apartments are situated in Torquay on the South Devon Coast in an area that has become known as The English Riviera because of the continental feel of Torquay harbour side in particular. The area is an ideal all year round destination for short breaks as there is a very mild micro climate as well as a large number of all year round attractions.

The apartments are in the leafy residential area of Wellswood which is just a five minute drive from the harbour and town centre. The centre of Wellswood is Ilsham Road which is a five minute walk from the apartments. Here you will find a pub, bistro,delicatessen, cafes, pharmacy, beauty salons and much much more. Just beyond the shopping area is Kent's Cavern a World Heritage site where the earliest human remains in north west Europe have been found.

The apartments also benefit from excellent public transport links. These include an intensive bus network that serves the whole of The English Riviera ( such as the towns of Babbacombe, St Marychurch, Paignton and Brixham) as well as places slightly further afield such as Dartmouth, Totnes, Teignmouth, Dawlish and the cities of Plymouth and Exeter.

The Muntham Apartments are formed from one of Torquay's grand old Victorian villas which was originally built for a man who was a member of Parliament for the area. It has retained lots of its original features but has also successfully managed to accommodate apartments that meet the needs of modern visitors.

Apartment 4 is on the first floor of the building and overlooks the front of the property and has a southerly aspect meaning it is wonderfully light and bright. The apartment is accessed via the grand staircase and the hallways with their ornate plaster work.

The apartment has a sitting room with sofa and dining area. It has a modern flat screened TV with a built in DVD player. Guests are welcome to borrow DVDs from our own collection. Free wifi is available to all guests.

There is a well equipped kitchen with a full sized oven and hob, microwave and coffee machine and a dishwasher. We supply guests with a complimentary welcome pack of teas and coffees.

There is also a closet with plenty of hanging space and a shower room. A complimentary welcome pack of toiletries is included.

Then there is the romantic tower bedroom which features a luxury double bed with pocket sprung mattress as well as a DAB radio. All linen and towels are included in the rate and for guests staying 7 nights or more a complimentary full linen and towel change is offered.

Guests have access to a communal laundry room with coin operated washers and dryers. We supply detergent free of charge. There is also an iron and ironing board there too.

Surrounding the property is nearly one acre of gardens.

About Adam Millward

We moved to Torquay in 2004 and operated The Somerville a B&B. We transformed it from a run down failing business into a multi award winning Five Star Gold Award boutique property. In 2012 we began a holiday letting business and ran it alongside The Somerville until March 2016 when we sold The Somerville and purchased The Muntham Apartments.

Adam Millward purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Adam Millward chose Torquay

Muntham is a beautiful old villa which has kept much of its original charm with bags of original features still in evidence. It is also really close to all the facilities of Wellswood Village. The building also has lovely grounds that give the place a really tranquil feel
