About the Owner

Torquay is where I was born and despite being well travelled I would not chose to live anywhere else. My house is situated in the affluent area of Ilsham Marine Drive. A beautiful valley and wooded area leads to the seafront and beach facilities, all within a 10 minute walk. In the opposite direction the village of Wellswood can be found, which offers a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants, beauty salons, hairdressers and a Pub, within a 5-10 minute walk.

So more people can enjoy the benefits of this stunning location.

Lovely family stay at Magnolias Annex

  • 5 of 5

As a family of four with two younger children Magnolias Annex was the perfect getaway for us. It had all that we needed and the proximity to the beach was perfect for us. The master bedroom was of a good size with large tv. We had a few sunny days and sat outside with a bbq which was very private and we felt safe letting the kids wander in and out. The annex in fact is a house of a good size and perfect for a family of four, or even six. There are beautiful views on a sunny day down to the beach, which we particularly appreciated being from central London. All in all a great family stay for us all. We will be back next year, thank you.

Wonderful place for a short break

  • 5 of 5

This annex (actually a full house in its own right) is an amazingly appointed and spacious base for a short break in the English Riviera. We were lucky enough to happen upon this property at short notice and we're given a great deal on the advertised price. Everything that we needed was right there, meaning we had a lovely relaxing break away from it all - and our two young ones were more than happy too with enough technology to keep them occupied during evening 'down-time'.

Booking was a delight, and any questions were answered quickly via a friendly text with Amy.

I can't enthuse enough about this place, thanks Amy!

From the Owner

The location of this property speaks volumes. It is nestled in a leafy, quiet, up market suburb of Torquay, widely referred to as 'millionaire's row'. There is so much to do within the surrounding area and local town, guests will not have to travel far and wide on a daily basis to find entertainment. The apartment is clean, modern and luxurious and would suit a family or small group perfectly. We have a complete sky package installed and have recently purchased the latest 'Xbox' games console for guests to use. There is also a family membership available for the 5* Imperial Hotel Gym and Spa, which is nearby.
