  • "Loved our stay at driftwood home from home just better."

    Facilities excellent including such comfortable beds and hottub an added bonus after a day's exploring. Proximity to shops, pubs, restaurants and other entertainment was excellent with most within 5 to 10 minutes away. Would definitely stay here again and would certainly recommend to Friends and family

  • "Great property in a great location close to the town centre, and attractions."

    The house has a lovely hot tub which is great for relaxing in when the kids have gone to bed! The only thing that let it down for us were a few cleanliness issues; the fridge had a nasty smell and needs a good clean, in the en suite bathroom there was black mould all over the shower head. We also felt the house needed a good dust, lots of cobwebs on the upstairs windows, dust on the blinds etc. There was also a very drippy tap in the kitchen.

    Listened to your comments all been resolved. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay."

    Just a few points: The temperature inside the house - too hot. We had to buy a fan as air con wasn’t working. Also the door latch was broken on so my 2 year old could open the door. It’s worth mentioning that the hot tub maintenance people turn up regularly without warning. Finally a 9am check out is soooo early! Otherwise we had a wonderful stay, thank you!

  • "The property is amazing."

    Stunningly looked after and in a perfect location. We had such fun in the hot tub after walks along the coastal path and around Torquay, Babbacombe and Paignton. Can't wait to come back

  • "A beautiful place in a lovely area, very clean and modern inside and beds are so comfy."

    The hot tub was bliss in the mornings along with the tassimo drinks provided. Its location is literally a 5 minute walk from the town centre which is far enough from the hustle and bustle at night. We absolutely loved it and are hoping to return in the future.

  • "The house was fantastic."

    Great location, central to everything and exactly as described. Great hot tub to relax in. Good parking. The only thing I would change is a second shower as we were 3 Adults and had to use the same shower. But we did know that from the description and it did not deter us from booking. 10 out of 10 from all of us.

    Second shower installed. Thanks for your comments Property Owner

  • "We have stayed at a number of Sykes properties but this has to be up there with the best!"

    The house is a real gem, such a great location for the town of Torquay but also for the surrounding area as well. We walked and used buses most days, only getting in the car to venture further afield a couple of times. There is a shop close by and lots of places to eat in town, we hardly needed to use the kitchen at all! The house is very clean and in excellent condition. The beds were comfy, the bed linen and towels all pristine. We loved the style of decoration and the uncluttered air of the place. The house was plenty big enough for 4 although might feel a bit cramped for 6. The hot tub was brilliant, in a really quirky backdrop with the church right behind it. The owner was most helpful on the one occasion there was a small query re the water levels in the tub. 2 small points that could be improved - a clothes airer would come in handy for wet hot tub towels (I know there was washing line but this was quite short and went across the top of the tub so was a bit compromised). Secondly the shower arm in the ensuite bathroom would not hold the shower head up - ok for a 4ft midget but no good for my 6ft husband!! Minor problems on an otherwise great stay.

    Thank you for your comment we’re resolving this season. Property Owner

  • "This property is clean, well maintained, has all the appliances and utensils you will need for a holiday stay."

    The jacuzzi is fantastic and situated in a secluded rear yard which gets the sun from dawn to dusk. This semi detached house is ideally situated about 10 minutes walk down hill to the town centre. The walk back could be problematic for the elderly or infirm. All in all a brilliant choice for a vacation in Torquay we would highly recommend it to all.

The property

Settled within a private development, in the heart of the charming coastal town of Torquay, in Devon, rests this contemporary semi-detached holiday home, Driftwood.

Enjoying close proximity to a wealth of the English Riviera's must-see sights and attractions, including the picture-perfect harbour and the pristine sands of Torquay Beach, there's no better place to explore Devon than with a stay at Driftwood.

Two sought-after off-road parking spaces greet you upon arrival, leading you through a well-kept front garden and into a hallway space, providing handy storage to store your beach-going essentials away from the main living areas.

Unwind following an action-packed day of adventure and move through to the open-plan living/dining room, where you can snuggle up in front of the Smart TV as the designated chef gets to work on preparing a hearty meal in the nearby kitchen.

Uncork a bottle of wine and gather together at the dining table with seating for six, or venture outdoors, fire up the barbeque, and soak in the evening sunshine in your private garden.

End each day in style with a blissful soak amongst the bubbles of the hot tub, and as the skies grow darker, retreat indoors and prepare for bed with a quick rinse in the bathroom.

When sleep calls, you're spoilt for choice between three well-presented bedrooms, with a king-size, a double and a bunk room to choose from, offering flexible sleeping arrangements for both adults and children sharing.

The Torquay Museum rests next door to this Devon holiday home, showcasing fascinating displays relating to local history, whilst those interested in crime may prefer a visit to The Real Crime Museum, found a short distance away.

Take advantage of your close proximity to the coast and spend a peaceful afternoon lounging on the pristine sands of Torquay beach, or simply watch the world go by as you relax with your favourite tipple alongside the glistening waters of the harbour.

More seaside adventures await in Paignton, with its fun-filled pier, sure to keep the little ones entertained, along with the award-winning sands of Paignton Beach, and the exhilarating waterpark of Splashdown Quaywest.

Animal lovers will delight with a visit to Paignton Zoo Environmental Park, settled further inland, whilst those looking to uncover the fascinating history of Devon will delight with a tour of Berry Pomeroy Castle and the National Trust 's Compton Castle.

The delights of the English Riviera await with a stay at Driftwood.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
