About Adrian Knott

Father of two children (Lizzie aged 8 & Patch aged 5) married to Sally. Work from home. Fitness and golf. Travel and cooking. Family life.

We enjoy sharing our lovely cottages for your holiday in Devon. Happy to provide local knowledge for you on your trip to Torquay. We have stayed in many holiday rentals and we have set up the cottages in a way that they are simply an extension of our own home. Exceptionally well equipped, all of the mod cons that you would need, comfortable furniture and sleeping arrangements to ensure that you feel home from home.

The upside is we have ensured there is no alarm clock for work, no phones and no domestic chores to do. Simply arrive, unpack and settle straight into your holiday or break away. The views, the surrounding areas and people are perfect.

Adrian Knott purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Adrian Knott chose Torbay

We have long links with Torquay and I fell in love with Daddyhole Plain following a trip to the area and sitting on Meadfoot Beach the day after the total eclipse of the sun in August 1999.

What makes this cottage unique

I decided that I wanted to come and visit this amazing area again and again and felt the uniqueness of these cottages over looking Daddyhole Plain and being close to the sea was always going to be a special memory for me; to come and get away from my busy life in London. I now live in Cheltenham and visit the cottages whenever I can get away with my wife and children. If you are a holiday maker with children they will love Daddyhole Plain it is actually a very safe area for children to play whilst you relax outside the cottages with an eye on them without worry. No cars will drive by as private road so only cars that come by are the ones that visit the cottages of which their are only 8.

Greeted by the smell of blocked drains and lights not working. House keeper arrived 4 hrs later with lightbulbs and flash spray. The smell stayed all week and was sickening. We left 2 days early because of it!! Filthy carpets, collapsing bathroom floor which was dangerous, damp in the bedroom, bathroom lights not working and the list goes on. Ruined our first family holiday in 12 yrs. Will not be returning or recommending. Nothing like pictures on web site and we feel misled and let down.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the lovely coastguard cottage which was comfy, homely, well equipped and in a really good location. To wake up and see the sea from your bed is a real treat and the coastal walk from Daddyhole Plain to the town is fantastic.

I would thoroughly recommend this property...
