The property

Bay View is an apartment situated in the Abbey Sands development, which has been designed by world class architect, Kay Elliott, and has become a premier address in Torquay.

The beautiful design is influenced by the Art Deco style of the British seaside, with curving balconies and horizontal emphasis, resembling an ocean liner.

With breathtaking views of Torbay and a location fronting the beach at Torre Abbey Sands, the development is close to the marina and the town centre with easy access to all that Torquay has to offer.

Abbey Sands provides the opportunity for a luxurious holiday with accommodation combining the best of beachfront and urban locality.

The apartment is situated on the second-floor but has level access from the car park.

There is a balcony which runs the length of the apartment with access from both bedrooms and living room.

With unrestricted views guests can simply relax and absorb the stunning panoramic views stretching along the coast.

There is a lift which will take you down to restaurants and bars which are located on the ground floor as well as access to the beach just across the road.

The apartment has been decorated and furnished to a five-star standard, with fibre-optic broadband throughout, and is perfect for a family holiday, or a couple’s retreat.

There is so much to do in the area and, having a private parking space, you can leave the car as everything is on the doorstep.

Take a boat from Torquay Marina across to Brixham for a great day out, or perhaps visit the Princess Theatre which has some amazing shows throughout the year; if you’re looking to dine out in the area, be sure to visit Rockfish for some fresh produce, enjoy a takeaway from Saltwater, or head to The Hole in the Wall pub, the oldest pub in the town, for some traditional fare and live music every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.

For a day at the beach, Torre Abbey Sands is one of the most popular in the area, a firm favourite for sandcastle building or basking in the Devonshire sunshine or brush up on your local knowledge at Torquay Museum.

Living Coasts, where penguins roam freely, Babbacombe Model Village, and a step back in time at Bygones, are all just a walk away, and Kent’s Cavern is also worth a visit.

Torquay is also the birthplace of the world-famous crime writer Agatha Christie, who wrote many of her novels at the Grand Hotel which can be viewed from the balcony.

Many holidaymakers follow in her footsteps along the Agatha Christie Mile and discover what inspired her, or even visit her summer home, Greenaway.

For those in search of some tranquillity, Cockington Country Park offers miles of woodland and parkland to explore.

This prime location in the English Riviera will provide the perfect viewpoint for annual events including the Red Arrows, firework displays and sailing events throughout the year.

Beyond Torquay, there are regular bus and train services to Plymouth and Exeter, with the train station only a short walk away.

Take time to also visit iconic Dartmoor National Park and experience the raw natural beauty of Devon.

Dartmouth, Salcombe, Paignton, Dartmoor, Exeter and Plymouth are all within easy reach by car.

Paignton Zoo is only a short distance away and there are river and sea cruises, as well as steam train trips nearby, at Round Robin Tour.

There’s a beach within 100 yards, a shop in less than a mile, and both a pub and restaurant just a stone’s throw from your front door.

You’ll want to return time and time again, with 13 bookings in 2022 and 19 bookings in 2023 being returning guests!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
