Overview

About the property

Fabulous location close to Torquay marina, beaches, coastal footpath, yacht club, boat trips across the bay to Brixham and to Dartmouth, fishing and wild life cruises, Living Coasts, steam railway, theatre, excellent cafe's, bars and restaurants, including the Michelin starred Elephant and the brilliant Number 7 Fish Bistro, an easy walk from the shops and right on the coastal footpath with pretty well everything else you might need on hand. There are a lot of pretty, interesting, small towns nearby including Totnes, Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Salcombe. The journey to Kingsbridge from Dartmouth along the coast must be amongst the pretttiest trips in the world. There are several excellent National Trust properties nearby, amongst them Coleton Fishacre, with its out of this world gardens, Agatha Christie's home, Torre Abbey, several castles and magnificent Dartmoor close by. The apartment is within yards of the water with the marina on one side and Beacon Cove on the other and within an easy and enjoyable walk to Meadfoot Beach and Torre Abbey Sands. The apartment is peaceful, comfortable, well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, and all usual kitchen applicances and interestingly furnished. It has a large airy and comfortable living room, galley kitchen and two double bedrooms, one with an ensuite wetroom and the other with a rather spectacular bathroom. There is a separate area for the washing machine and good drying area especially useful for wet sailing kit. The apartment is on the ground floor and easy access, pet and child friendly. This is the perfect place for a holiday for all ages.

About Gillian

Until my recent marriage the apartment was my own home. I now live elsewheer in the bay with my husband. Between us we have 7 childrena nd 4 grandchildren and I can tell you from experience that Torquay is a great place to enjoy lefe whatever your age and interests. I am a solicitor by profession but now approaching retirement and have no intention of moving away from Torqay, although I have lived in Africa and the Far East and have travelled widely in Europe and the wider world.

Gillian purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Gillian chose Torquay

This flat is in the most fantastic position for a holiday. it is right where you would want to be in Torquay. Step out of the front door and you are practically on the Marina and within an easy stroll of local beaches and boat trips. Pretty much everything is within an easy walk. It is very accessible and close to all the main attractions. If you want a meal out there are marvellous local restaurants and you don't have to worry about that extra glass of wine.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location, location. The flat is also within a pretty listed Georgian Terrace and has a most elagant spacious living room. Although so close to the acton, the flat has an air of tranquility inside.

True to pictures

  • 2 of 5

The person that let us in could hardly use the keys himself. The apartment was cold and there were no extra blankets or sheets...not even a throw for the couch! Finally found the washer when we getting ready to leave...outside in a dirty garage with no light. There also was no hair dryer. I called the owner and she never returned my call. 😒

Lovely Apartment in an excellent position.

The apartment was on the ground floor with other apartments on the 2nd & 3rd floors. It was in an excellent position for eating places.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed it. Onstreet parking is in short supply but you can get a parking permit from the council for the car park on Beacon Quay online for £33 a week and n that case you don't have to move once parked.

There are almost too many local attractions to mention. The marina and beaches are very close. There is a good local museum, 3 local theatres, cinema and fantastic restaurants nearby, as well as bars and a nightclub. There are a number of historical sites, castles and national trust houses and gardens. There are Napoleonic war sites at Brixham and World War II sites to visit in Torquay and Slapton. Devon has a fabulous coastline, and the flat is right on the coastal footpath as well as countryside and the Dartmoor is well worth a visit , as are the pretty towns and villages of the South Hams. There are boat trips to Brixham and to Dartmouth and trips bu bus, steam train and boat to Agatha Christies House and up river to unissable Totnes
