  • "The property was excellent, everything was comfortable and clean, the view was fantastic."

    The communication from the host was good, the welcome pack was very nice. If the weather had been better we would have used the garden more. We will be going back as all you could need from a base when visiting the area.

  • "Had an amazing stay at Bob's View."

    Hosts Amanda and Nick are lovely and on hand if you need anything. The welcome hamper was the best with homemade scones and shortbread and everything else you needed to settle in just like home. It was a home from home with super sea views from upstairs and downstairs. You could just park the car and walk to Goodrington Sands/Paignton. At the bottom of the road bus stops for ride to Brixham or into Torquay. Very, clean and tidy highly recommendable. The hosts had thought of everything.

  • "I liked this property and owner was friendly and accommodating."

    Loved the view at night. However I feel it was way overpriced and the sofa and chair in living area was cheap and uncomfortable... Paignton was quite shabby but I would recommend visiting some of the surrounding areas..

    we are so sorry you did not enjoy your holiday with us, Nick and myself take the care and comfort of our guests very seriously. We have never had a guest complain about the sofa before but will be asking future guests for feedback, with a view to replacing if necessary, although we did not pay thousands for it, it was new last year and not that cheap.

  • "Bob's View is a superb place to stay."

    Spotlessly clean and located in an ideal spot with views, the apartment provided everything you could want for a holiday stay. The area offers lots of lovely coastal walking. There are also places of interest nearby, notably Greenway, the holiday home of Agatha Christie and Coleton Fishacre. We hope to return to Bob's View soon.

  • "We had a very special and relaxing break at Bobs View and would highly recommend a visit!"

    We will certainly be returning. From the moment we stepped into our new home for the week that is what it felt like a home. Nick and Amanda had clearly thought about everything to make it perfect. There is an amazing sea view from the kitchen, bedroom, lounge and garden. It was so lovely to sit in the garden early in the morning with a cuppa and late in the evening with a glass of wine. It was so peaceful and calm a Robin even bathed in the water bath on the first night we were there while we were both in the garden. Thank you Amanda and Nick for a truly wonderful stay.

  • "The hamper was a lovely bonus, bread, milk, butter together with home made scones, lclotted cream and jam."

    The house was spotless but there were cleaning products in the cupboard if needed. Good location to get around the area by car or train to see some of the beautiful places wirh spectacular views on the South Devon coast, especially Dartmouth, Salcombe and Bigbury on Sea. Close enough to a big selection of large supermarkets for self catering needs.

  • "We were given a warm welcome from owners Amanda & Nick."

    This holiday cottage was a home from home. The owners had thought of everything you might have needed and some. Lovely welcome basket of essentials & homemade goodies. Good location for visiting the Torbay area & beyond. The view from the property is stunning, right over the bay from Paignton to Torquay. Would thoroughly recommend this property if visiting this area. Although we have quite a large car Nick kindly parked his so we could keep ours off the road. The whole area is quite hilly so wouldn't suit someone with any mobility issues.

    However the weather was so nice we spent most of the time in the garden. Hosts extremely welcoming and helpful. Perfect for dogs - treats, pooh bags, towels and blankets available. There are a few steps down to the property which may be a problem to some. Would definitely return and recommend. Thanks

  • "We had a great time at Bob’s view."

    The owners made us feel really welcome. The location is excellent and it was lovely waking up to a sea view every day! The facilities were very good (we particularly enjoyed the milk frother!), it seems like the owners had thought of everything. The driveway is shared with the owner but we have a small SUV and had no problem, but parking in the road is available too. Although the garden is enclosed, there is a steep drop from a low wall - the owners explained this when we got there. Overall a great stay, and we would highly recommend.

The property

This smart two-storey annex is attached to the owners' own home in Paignton, set in an elevated position with lovely long views out over Torbay and less than a mile walk to Goodrington Beach. It is completely self-contained with its own separate entrance and private garden for guests' exclusive use.

Couples can escape from their busy lifestyle and enjoy a peaceful holiday or weekend away at Bob’s View. Step into a delightful interior set over 2 floors boasting a lovely neutral colour scheme, heading up the first-floor sitting room where you can appreciate the panoramic sea views.

With some tasty local produce picked up from one of the nearby shops, cook up a romantic meal making use of the kitchen appliances which include an electric oven and hob, as well as a microwave and a fridge/freezer.

Serve up your lovingly prepared dish at the dining table, and relish quality time together discussing what you'd like to do with the rest of your Devonshire getaway.

A tastefully furnished double bedroom can be found on the ground floor, enjoying a complementary colour scheme of grey and turquoise, creating a tranquil space to wind down in.

Doors open out to the raised patio, ideal for socialising on a warm afternoon, perhaps with a cold beverage or a good book.

Paignton makes a wonderful holiday base with a wealth of shops, pubs, clubs and restaurants to try, plus the superb harbour which is perfect for a refreshing morning stroll.

Walk down to Goodrington beach, a Blue-Flag awarded beach, or visit Preston Sands, a delightful sandy beach with seafront cafés and vibrant beach huts.
