Lovely spacious apartment close to the town, harbour and sea front

Located just a 10 minute walk to the harbour front and nearby beaches and town centre this ground floor apartment offers a superb location to explore the many delights of the English Riviera and surrounding area, including Dartmoor.

Sorrento offers a secluded and quiet position, with communal gardens and off street parking for one vehicle. There is additional off street parking for other vehicles nearby.

My aim is to provide guests with a comfortable ‘home from home’ experience at an affordable price.

The spacious apartment offers a large main reception room with luxurious leather sofas as well as a Sony Bravia 40” television with DVD player and a small selection of DVD’s as well as a collection of books.

The kitchen is equipped with all those must have appliances to include a large fridge/freezer, gas hob and oven, microwave, dishwasher and the pots and pans you will need.

The apartment boasts high speed Wi-Fi broadband throughout, ensuring no internet withdrawal symptoms throughout guest stays!

Centrally heated throughout, Sorrento provides the perfect excuse for a year-round escape.

The delightful master bedroom offers a new (Nov 2016) King size bed with orthopaedic mattress, wardrobes, bedside cabinets and with an attached large modern en-suite comprising of a double size shower, WC and wash basin.

The second bedroom can be fitted out to the guest specification, either being a kingsize bed or two single beds.

Why Greg chose Torbay

Sorento works for me as it is easily accessible and once there is quiet and relaxing, yet just a short walk into the bustling harbour front.

Being a big fan of Dartmoor it is also just a short drive away as well.

I find the location is the best of all worlds and try and get down to Sorrento for that slice of of peace and quiet.

What makes this apartment unique

Sorrento is ideally situated just a short walk from the harbour front where you find a range of shops, restaurants and bars.

Torquay itself is a great location, nestled within the heart of the English Riveria and also, just down the road from Dartmoor which I would suggest should be explored.



The main Torquay beach is just a 15 minute walk away whilst other Torbay beaches can be accessed easily by either car or local transport.

Very spacious - pictures do not do justice!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is as spacious as the title suggests and with the advantage of two bathrooms, made a stay for four people very smooth and comfortable. It's well situated to walk into town, although we took a few days to adjust to the Torquay hills! We actually found it more comfortable to walk via the road rather than the steps as the gradient was gentler on the knees for my mother who does suffer some trouble. There's a lot to do just within walking distance of the apartment, from Torre Abbey to the Living Coast, and Babbacombe Model Village and Kents Caverns are literally a ten minute hop in the car and definitely worth visiting. You can also take trips by boat or bus and steam train to explore further afield without having to get the car out. We booked down by the inner harbour for a trip which was bus, steam train and shuttle bus that took us to the National Trust property Greenways, Agatha Christie's 'holiday home'. Can also recommend the Hole in the Wall - Torquays oldest tavern - for good food and friendly staff. All in all, an excellent base to come back to in this area full of interesting places to visit - we ran out of time! Thank you to Gregg, the owner, who was very friendly and helpful when I quizzed him on the area both before and after booking.

Spacious, clean and well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the end of April in this apartment and can thoroughly recommend it as a wonderful base from which to explore the Torquay area. Not only is the lounge an inviting space to relax in, the bed was one of the most comfortable we have experienced. We both slept very well. This was our first visit to Torquay in many years and will definitely re-book this apartment when we decide to come again. We will also be recommending it to friends

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. My aim is to provide a home from home experience and make my guests happy and comfortable. I have recently purchased the new bed which I agree, really is comfortable. I have also recently upgraded the beds in the second bedroom. One thing I like is that my apartment is central to the town, yet tucked away and is a good base to explore south Devon and Dartmoor. Thank you once again for your lovely review. Kind regards Gregg

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments and we would welcome you back anytime. Since your stay I have upgraded the bed in the master bedroom to a kingsize with a very comfortable mattress. I will also be doing some more bit and pieces in the New Year to ensure my apartment maintains such great reviews. Kind regards Gregg
