Overview

About the property

2 ensuite bed sunny flat near shops, walks, marina and beaches

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 stroll to the shops and several beaches 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, Berty Pomeroy Castle said to be the most haunted in England, Compton Castle occupied by the same family since the reign of the first Queen Elizabeth and Ugbrook House with its fine gardens 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 it has a large airy and comfortable living room, newly fitted galley kitchen and two double bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom and the other with an ensuite shower room. There is a pleasant courtyard which is especially sunny in the morning. 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

I am retired. I have four grown up chaildren and several grandchildren.

Gillian purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Gillian chose Torquay

I love this flat. It is quirky but has a beautiful living room with perfect Georgian proportions. The bedrooms are cosy. Both are double, but not very big and both have ensuite facilities. The kitchen was newly fitted last year and has everything you need. There is a nice sized courtyard which is nice to sit out in and enjoy a drink

What makes this apartment unique

This flat is fabulously located for a holiday. It is close to everything you could want on holiday. The two best reasturants in town are on Beacon Terrace. Just yards away is Beacon Cove which is tucked away and almost a secret. There is a lovely walk along the coastal footpath to Meadfoot Beach and Abbey sands is just a stroll away. The theatre is near so are the shops and theer are boat trips to Dartmouth and Brixham just a short hop away. Living coats is on the doorstep. You don't need a car at all as everything is on the doorstep.The downside is thata there is jo dedicate dparking but you can get a permit for the public carpark close by. It is also a pit but the flat no longer has a clear view of the sea despite being a stone's throw from it. But I would sttill wholeheatedly recommend this flat for a break. It si great.

Lovely Time in Torquay

  • 4 of 5

Great location and better nights sleep than in any hotel we've been in for a while. A nice flat with everything you need, even a DVD in the cupboard which was great for late nights. When we come Torquay again will definitely look to stay here. Thanks.

Lovely clean, spacious well equipped rental in a fantastic location. Everything we needed to enjoy a lovely holiday in Torquay. Ideal base to visit all the surrounding area, close to shops, eateries, pubs and bars. We absolutely loved it, particularly the space. We would love to stay again next year. Very friendly and helpful owner who ensured everything went smoothly. Highly recommend to anyone.

A brilliant place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely flat to stay in which is clean and incredibly well situated. The owners were helpful and provided everything we needed. The only downside to the flat is the lack of parking available (you have to use public car parks which are expensive). A private parking space would make this the perfect holiday let! The flat was fantastically situated for the event we were attending at the nearby Imperial Hotel and also for a quick look round Torquay. Would definitely use this let again.

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
