  • "Hi We have had a lovely 7 day holiday at Ocean Retreat."

    The property is superb in all respects. Clean rooms and furniture. Fully equipped kitchen. Comfortable beds. Lovely quiet area and central for Torquay Paignton Brixham and Dartmouth.  We would gladly return if the opportunity arises. B and B Hunter  23rd March 2024

    Many thanks for your great review. We are pleased that you had a lovely holiday and enjoyed the area. Thanks again for choosing to stay at Ocean Retreat. Kieran Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Ocean Retreat."

    Everything was spotlessly clean, the beds and sofa were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We appreciated the welcome gifts that were left for us; a very kind touch. We were not keen on Paignton, the nearest beach resort, which is full of amusement arcades and junk food, but Brixham was not too far away and is far nicer. We also went to several other interesting places in the area: the Berry Head Napoleonic forts, Totnes, Dartmouth, Kingswear, Coleton Fishacre, the Dartmoor prison museum at Princetown, Torquay (for the theatre) and Cockington. Just one suggestion: please provide a mirror in the bathroom; no mirror makes shaving and styling wet hair awkward.

    Many thanks for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Ocean Retreat. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed visiting many of the interesting places nearby. Thanks for your feedback about the mirror, we have now put one in the bathroom. Thanks again for choosing to stay at Ocean Retreat. Property Owner

  • "Very clean property."

    Quiet area and lovely view of the sea. Had everything you needed for your stay except maybe a make-up / shaving mirror in the bathroom was the only thing missing in our opinion. Decor and furnishings were lovely. Thanks for a lovely stay.

    Thank you for your great review. We are glad you had a lovely stay. We have made a note about the mirror in the bathroom and will install one. Thanks again, and we would love to welcome you back at Ocean Retreat if you visit Torbay again. Property Owner

The property

Paignton 1.9 miles.

Ocean Retreat, a delightful, three-storey house is situated in Goodrington, near to Goodrington Sands, on the outskirts of Paignton, a popular seaside resort in Devon.

Set over three floors, this charming abode offers off-road parking for one car, an enclosed lawned garden, a collection of well-presented, contemporary interiors, and a superb location just a short stroll from the nearest shop, pub, and beaches, making it a perfect base for a family or group of four friends seeking a refreshing getaway just east of the brilliant Dartmoor National Park.

Park up, unpack, and make yourself comfortable in your lovely new lodgings.

Step through the front door and be immediately greeted by a ground-floor utility housing a washing machine and toilet before you head up the carpeted stairs into the open-plan living space.

Here, acquaint yourself with the fully-equipped kitchen, whipping up a delicious, home-cooked feast to savour upon the elegant breakfast bar.

When you’re ready to relax, pour yourself a glass of your favourite beverage before you kick back in the sitting space to watch a film on the Smart TV, or outside in the lawned garden to soak in more of your gorgeous setting.

When day turns into night, retreat upstairs to refresh with a revitalising bath or shower before you finally hunker down for a well-earned rest in one of the king-size bedrooms, one of which is a zip/link with accompanying en-suite shower and heavenly sea views.

When you’re ready, head out to explore everything Paignton has to offer.

Set out on foot and find an array of convenience stores and supermarkets selling homely essentials, a wealth of independent pubs and eateries including the Waterside Inn and The Sea Shack, as well as an abundance of noteworthy landmarks and locations; the home is also close to the beautiful sandy beaches of Goodrington Sands Beach (0.6 miles away) and Broadsands Beach (1 mile away), making it a wonderful area for beachgoers.

Enjoy a dip in the sea at Oyster or Saltern Cove, spend an afternoon at the exciting Splashdown Quaywest water park or Paignton Zoo, or simply watch the world go by or enjoy a spot of sunbathing along the lush golden stretch of Paignton Beach.

Further afield, delight in a full day out within the Dartmoor National Park, an iconic setting, home to the Down Tor Stone Circle, the Becky Falls Ancient Woodland Park, and the serene greens of Wistman's Wood.

All of this and more is yours to enjoy when you book a stay at Ocean Retreat.

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