    We were disappointed with the size of the rooms, they were very small, being in what really turned out to be a loft, with very low ceilings, the courtyard that we had access to was quite small, the beds were not comfy, we were grossly overcharged to stay at this holiday let, and we will not be using sykes cottages again

    Thank you for your review, I am sorry you were disappointed with the size of the rooms at Monterey Mews, we feel the property is well represented online and the pictures provide a true indication of what to expect when staying with us. Property Owner

  • "A lovely clean, warm, comfortable apartment that made our holiday very enjoyable and in a great location for exploring the coastline and surrounding areas."

    The hosts were very helpful and the little 'welcome' bags were a wonderful touch !

  • "The cottage itself was great, cozy, clean and met our needs perfectly."

    .. However, though the cottage itself is dog friendly, due to the tiny court yard and no nearby grassed/dog walking areas etc. you have to walk quite a distance to find a suitable dog walking/toilet area or you have to actually take your dog out in the car to access dog friendly areas. Not too much of a problem for us, but could be an issue with anyone who may have difficulty walking longer distances and need to toilet their dog regularly or as sometimes occurs ‘urgently’.

  • "This property is well apportioned and equipped and was very well located for the beach and shops at Babbacombe, just outside Torquay."

    The standard of accommodation was excellent as was the cleanliness and civid preparedness. The property benefits from off road parking which is really needed for the location. . Highly recommended for a mid week break or longer.

The property

Set next to the owner's Victorian villa, lies a detached mews cottage providing a homely base in the seaside town of Torquay.

Monterey Mews, so called because of the large Monterey tree in the owner's garden, visible from the open-plan living space, is a wonderful space for six guests looking to explore Devon's south coast.

Step in through the front door and be met first with one of the double bedrooms resting on the ground-floor, decorated beautifully with neutral tones and quality furnishings, it has a standard double bed and is benefitted by a lovely en-suite bathroom, complete with a bath and shower over, plus a heated rail to keep your towel warm.

Head upstairs to be welcomed into the heart of the home on the first-floor, enjoying an open-plan layout, it has light flooding in from the Velux skylights in the sloping ceilings.

Settle on the sofas where a TV with a DVD player can entertain you, or choose to play one of the board games gathered around the circular dining table.

The kitchen has a wealth of appliances for whipping up some tasty meals, with sleek wood-effect worktops and light units, it's a charming space complete with a dishwasher, gas oven and hob, a fridge and a freezer.

From here, step across the room to find the shower room, neatly tucked away here, it holds a walk-in shower to freshen up in.

Continue down the hall after a busy day and get some rest in either of the two bedrooms up here, including a double and a twin, both with classic round, porthole windows and skylights, creating an ambient environment to wake up in.

Dine alfresco or just delight in some evening drinks out in your own private courtyard, while your canine companions can stretch their legs.

You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding what to do in the area; begin by heading to the nearby and renowned Babbacombe Model Village, set over four acres of grounds filled with miniature houses, vehicles and people, as well as a fabulous castle complete with fiery dragon!

Catch the nearly century-old Babbacombe Cliff Railway down to Oddicombe Beach, built in 1926, it offers a pleasant way to experience the lovely coastal views, as well as reach the beauty of the beach.

Oddicombe Beach, part of the English Riviera, is perfect for paddling in the waters as well as good for watersports, with golden sands and a popular café and shop on the beachfront.

Another gorgeous spot is Babbacombe Beach, a pebbled shoreline with more calm waters, and you can walk along the Downs claiming to be the highest promenade in England!

Take a turn around Tessier Gardens, a wonderfully-kept park which features a lovely pond, along with a glorious scented garden especially for the blind, it is a charming space.

Find a geological adventure at Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves, offering tours around the natural wonders, with activities for families and kids, and home to a large restaurant too.

Torre Abbey Museum and the Torquay Museum can both teach you a thing or two about the local history, whilst Living Coasts, a zoo and sea life aquarium, is home to a great collection of creatures, including free-roaming penguins, otters, and up-close experiences with the animals!

Find adventure around every corner from Monterey Mews in the lively town of Torquay.
