  • "Lovely location, we enjoyed our holiday there."

    The house was very spacious & warm. That said - an information pack for use of oven/cooker & microwave appliances would have been helpful. We found the mattress in the on suite room uncomfortable /lumpy. We would go back there again.

  • "The house was a lovely secure base to explore Torquay & surrounding areas."

    A car was useful as the house is located at the top of a long and steep road from the town centre, however there are bus stops very close by. The house is tucked away behind the Fonthill apartments and everything leading off the driveway was very quiet and well maintained.

  • "We had a fab weeks stay everything was lovely and clean, and everything that you need to enjoy your holiday."

    The house is ideally located with only a 15min walk to Torquay harbour, which is great that we didn't have to drive everywhere. The garden was a sun trap and we enjoyed soaking up the sun in the afternoon. Would highly recommend the Lighthouse bar and cafe on Torquay Harbour it is on the same side as the amusement arcade, they are such a friendly bar and great with my boys, they are also dog friendly and even have treats for the dogs.
