The property

An immaculate, semi-detached cottage situated in a residential area of Paignton, on the English Riviera.

Boasting spectacular sea views from most of the rooms and the garden, this beautifully presented, bright and airy Paignton cottage is the perfect place for groups of friends and families to stay whilst exploring the south coast of Devon.

The master double bedroom of this Paignton cottage is the only room on the first floor, offering sea views, an en-suite bathroom, and a TV.

There is a further double and a twin on the ground floor, as well as a shower room.

Study the views of the coast from the breakfast bar in the well-equipped kitchen of this Paignton cottage, also overlooking the wide veranda, which is full of colourful potted plants, and gaze out of the window and down to the sea from the sitting room.

In cooler months, curl up by the woodburning stove and watch the twinkling lights of Paignton below.

Spread your maps and guidebooks across the dining table and plan the day’s adventures across Devon.

Outside, enjoy a glass of wine in the sunny, terraced garden as you catch up on some reading.

On the veranda you can soak up the summer sunshine and marvel at the breathtaking views stretching down to the bay and towards Brixham.

Just two miles away, the centre of Paignton is alive with a wonderful range of amenities and long sandy beaches, perfect for building sandcastles and playing in the surf on hot summer afternoons.

Explore the English Riviera, boasting an abundance of beautiful beaches, and the quaint harbour village of Brixham, situated to the south of Paignton, with its bustling harbour.

Catch a ferry across the River Dart from Brixham and explore the town of Dartmouth with an exceedingly good reputation for fashionable restaurants and interesting boutique shops.

Take part in the many activities taking place along the waterfront, including sailing, while river cruises glide up the Dart to Greenway, Agatha Christie’s former holiday home, and to the lively market town of Totnes.

This marvellous Paignton cottage is the perfect retreat for friends and families alike, and those looking to explore the delights of south Devon and the English Riviera.

    • “The cottage had fantastic views over Torbay and great facilities, including a large sunken bath within the en-suite, good sized rooms and a large decking area outside. The owners had thought of everything; a real home from home.”

    Mr Moran, Huddersfield, July 2015
