    “Hocking cottage was clean, comfortable, warm, and it was good to be within a town without the noise and hassle of a road outside.”

    The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. What more can one ask?

The property

Hocking Cottage is a delightful stone cottage situated in Torquay, Devon, tucked away in the heart of St Marychurch village.

This cottage is believed to date back to the early 18th century and offers a stylish interior, the perfect accommodation for a small family wanting to explore the Torquay area of Devon.

The property is adorned with a light decor and lovely exposed beams, showing off a wealth of character, while stunning hardwood flooring can be seen throughout the ground floor level of the property.

The sitting room has a large corner sofa and is ideal for relaxing and unwinding after a long day of sightseeing, while the kitchen has a set of white fitted units and wooden worktops, with a range of high-quality appliances on-hand to produce some delicious home-cooked meals for the family.

Upstairs you will find two bedrooms, one double and one twin with zip and link beds that can be made into a super-king-size upon request, meaning all types of groups looking to stay here can be catered for; with a wall-mounted TV in each bedroom, you don't have to leave your bed of a morning to catch up on your favourite shows!

There is a family bathroom with a P-shaped bath and shower over, plus contemporary fixtures and fittings and lovely white tiling.

The property is set in the centre of the village of St Marychurch, with a range of local shops, pubs, restaurants, tea rooms and cafés you can visit, with a delicious selection of the freshest fish and seafood which arrives daily at the thriving Fish Market, all of which are within walking distance from the property.

Why not pop into the precinct or stroll along Babbacombe Downs, where you will find the famous Victorian cliff railway and Babbacome Theatre?

Also you will find Babbacombe Model Village, opened in 1963 by Tom Dobbins, which spans across four acres of award-winning gardens and showcases a miniature model village, including houses, vehicles, a castle and a dragon.

One of the very oldest settlements in South Devon, St Marychurch’s two historic church towers dominate the Torquay skyline.

Venture towards Torquay Golf Club, founded in 1909 and had three-lined fairways with magnificent views across Lyme Bay and Portland Bill, which is open to visitors of all types, whether an amateur or a seasoned professional.

If you’re looking for a fun-filled day out, why not visit Kents Cavern, one of the most important Stone Age sites in Europe, one of Britain's best show caves and one of Devon’s most popular attractions?

Their daily tours take you back to a time when the cave was home to ancient humans, sheltering from extreme weather, and its extensive labyrinth of caverns, 400-million-year-old rocks and spectacular stalagmites and stalactites are awe-inspiring.

This property is less than three miles from popular Torquay, and its host of attractions, as well as several beautiful, sandy beaches to choose from.

You can also access the South West Coast Path and enjoy walking or cycling this famous route, whilst admiring the breath-taking coastal landscape.

Hocking Cottage is the perfect base for a seaside Devonshire holiday.
