About the property

A spacious studio apartment with separate kitchen and shower room.

The apartment sits within one of Torquay's beautiful Victorian villas in the leafy and desirable Wellswood area of Torquay. It is a five minute drive or bus journey to Torquay harbour and town centre or alternatively a twenty minute walk. Wellswood has a centre very much like a village and this is five minutes away so guests at Muntham can reach a pub, restaurants, delicatessen, patisserie, post office and much much more in just a few short minutes.

This studio apartment is located on the first floor of the building and overlooks the gardens at the side.

It benefits from having a separate kitchen which is equipped with a full sized cooker and hob as well as a microwave and coffee maker. We supply a complimentary welcome pack of teas and coffees etc.

The main living space has a luxury pocket sprung king size bed.There is a table so that guests on business can work which doubles as a dining table that can comfortably sit two. In addition there is a comfy sofa where guests can relax. There is a flat screen TV with built in DVD player and guests are welcome to make use of the owners' own collection of DVDs. There is also a digital radio.

The apartment has a bathroom with electric shower and a complimentary welcome pack of toiletries is included here.

Guests can also make use of the communal laundry which is located at garden level. The laundry has coin operated washers and dryers and ironing facilities. We provide complimentary detergent.

Free wifi is also included as are all bedding and towels.

About Adam Millward

Before purchasing Muntham in April 2016 we had owned and run The Somerville boutique B&B for twelve years. Our passion is for quality and excellence and for delighting our guests with something special. We are easy going and relaxed in our approach but beneath the surface we are paddling light fury to make sure all is as it should be.

Why Adam Millward chose Torquay

Muntham is a wonderful building that has survived extremely well. It has been lucky in that its previous owners have obviously loved it and taken care not to rip out stunning original features. It also has fantastic gardens that come to nearly an acre. This really does give you the feeling that you are in a tranquil oasis away from the cares of the World.

Positively perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent in every way. We were given a one bedroom apartment instead of the studio we had booked which was a pleasant surprise. Quiet. Well appointed. Comfortable, clean - just lovely. Would have no hesitation in recommending to others. Would love to go back some day if we come back to the UK!

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed apartment with everything needed for short or longer term stay.

Was greeted by owner/manager who was very friendly and gave us lots of tips for local restaurants as well as places to visit during our stay.

Perfect place to stay for short or longer term visits to this beautiful part of the UK.

Highly recommended.
