Fabulous property in Torquay

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in east Torquay area, particularly if you want to be right on the coast. The listing description was 100% accurate :- the property was luxuriously fitted-out & in excellent order. There were interesting cliff walks literally across the road. The owners were extremely helpful & friendly which made our stay even better. We have recommended the property to family & friends.

Fantastic view and beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Sea Spray. The views of the bay are exceptional and we even saw dolphins out in the bay one morning! The property had everything we needed - amazing views to enjoy, spacious rooms, comfortable bed, excellent shower, and fully equipped kitchen. As we were visiting in the spring, it was also nice and warm. Great location to visit the whole Torbay area and the property is situated in a lovely local area with nice shops and great coastal walks on the doorstep along the cliff path. The owners were exceptionally helpful and friendly and we would thoroughly recommend staying here.

Could Not Have Had a Better Time & Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure abot the exact dates for our wonderful week as I'd misplaced this form and just seen it today. We just want to speak to the perfect setting, vistas, inclusions and hospitality of our hosts and their delightful cottage.

I've written a review or two elsewhere about our stay but am happy to play catch-up on this format. We'd happily return if in the area and this very special opening were available. All the best from New York to a wonderful couple as well.
