  • “Positive: - Beds and sofas are very comfortable - Plenty of space for storage in the kitchen and bedrooms - Nicely decorated throughout and very clean - Strawberries and cream provided in the fridge were a very nice surprise!”

    Negative: - Quite a lot of spiders in the property. Possibly due to not having been rented out for a while, but for an arachnophobe (like me) was a significant source of stress - The ceiling in the bathroom is quite low - I am about 5' and there were only 4-5 inches above my head in the shower. A taller person would have to stoop - The outdoor patio is very small and not really pet-suitable

    - Mr Duxbury, September 2020

    Thank you for your feedback. I have added to the website information about the headroom in the shower for future guests. The patio is fully secure for pets to use and is more than sufficient for them to roam around. In addition there is a nature sanctuary 5 minutes walk where dogs are permitted. Many thanks. - Sykes owner relations

About the location

NEWTON ABBOT

Teignmouth 5 miles; Shaldon 5 miles; Torquay 10 miles; Exeter 18 miles; Plymouth 31 miles

Newton Abbot is situated in the heart of The English Riviera, with its mild climate and thriving palm trees. The ancient market town now offers plenty of modern shops, both local and well-known high street chains and six leading brand supermarkets. There's also a racecourse where National Hunt racing takes place from spring until autumn, with craft fayres during the winter. Newton Abbot has a unique pub, the tap house and bottle shop, located in the building of what was a traditional working malthouse offering arguably the finest bottled beers in Devon. The seaside towns of Teignmouth, Shaldon and Dawlish are nearby and are fantastic destinations for families. Spend a day on the beach building sand castles and walk the impressive Victorian Pier at Teignmouth. The National Trust houses of Bradley Manor, Coleton Fishacre and Compton Castle and many others are well worth a visit, whilst the highlight of your stay will undoubtedly be the stunning beaches around Torquay and the many hidden coves such as Meadfoot, Oddicombe and further afield the pretty Ness Cove. And of course, the South West Coast Path provides stunning seascapes across the bay, with a popular stretch from Torquay Harbour to Daddyhole Plain, passing through Beacon Cove where Agatha Christie used to swim as a girl. Newton Abbot provides a fabulous base for an English seaside holiday all year round.
