    “Although described as a cottage in ...”

    Although described as a cottage in all the literature we received, I would rather call it an apartment or flat. The property is a large semi detached house for which we had the whole of the bottom floor. Having searched on google maps I wasn't surprised about this but some people may be, however this in no way spoilt our holiday. ...

    Although described as a cottage in all the literature we received, I would rather call it an apartment or flat. The property is a large semi detached house for which we had the whole of the bottom floor. Having searched on google maps I wasn't surprised about this but some people may be, however this in no way spoilt our holiday. We were greeted with scones, jam, clotted cream and sandwiches which was a lovely thought and very welcome after our long drive from Nottingham. Upon exploring the accommodation we were pleased to see it was very clean, comfortable and best of all it was lovely and warm as we were holidaying in a very cold week in February. The large double bed was very comfortable in the master bedroom which is at the front of the property on the street side, there is a television in this room and ample storage including two chest of drawers and a wardrobe, there is another bedroom which we didn't use with two single beds and a wardrobe. The lounge was comfortable with a leather settee with reclining foot rests and armchair, there is a large wall mounted flat screen television, lots of DVD's and some games in a set of drawers. We were very pleased with the free wifi throughout the property. The dining room is a lovely large conservatory which is heated and overlooks the garden, perfect for comfortable dining. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need to make your stay enjoyable. A washer, dishwasher, microwave, large fridge freezer, double electric oven and four ringed gas hob plus all the pots, pans, plates, cups, saucers, mugs, cooking utensils you would ever need should you be cooking meals. There is a small toilet room with toilet and washbasin, and a larger bathroom and with walk in shower, toilet, bidet and washbasin. The property is ideal for disabled use, it is all on ground level with wide doors, a low level gas hob in the kitchen and a large walk in shower. If you were wheelchair bound you may need to ask the upstairs neighbours to move their car as there wouldn't be room to get a wheelchair past it, the drive and path to the front door may also prove difficult to negotiate as it was pebble stones. There is off street parking for one car outside but another car may be able to find on street parking outside or near the property. The approach road can get a little congested with a garage premises and their related vehicles parking both sides at the bottom of the road but further up the road where the property is it is very quiet as it's a cul-de-sac. There are people living upstairs accessed via a completely separate door, we weren't sure whether it was the owners of the property but if it was we didn't see them and they didn't come and say hello but there was a telephone number to ring if you needed them, there was very little noise from upstairs or next door so the rooms must be well sound proofed. The property is within easy walking distance of Preston beach and if you are fit you can walk to Paignton one way and Torquay the other way but that is a little further. The main road is on a bus route to both resorts. There is a wetherspoons pub a 15 minute walk away but the main pubs, restaurants and entertainment is either Paignton or Torquay. We had a lovely week and would recommend the property for a restful, comfortable, reasonable priced holiday.
