    However, there were several things not working (e.g. the latch to the wardrobe, light in bathroom and a shower). Instructions to the flat were not very clear. There were also no instructions on to how to heat the house which was not very warm. The house was also on a quite a busy road so 2 of the bedrooms had the sound of traffic passing by, so it was lucky at least the back room was away from the road. The biggest complaint was the impracticality of the kitchen work surface, where the house instructions said that the work surface should not get wet. As this was almost impossible in terms of cooking and doing the washing up, this made home cooking not really a viable option.

The property

This beautifully restored period cottage is situated near the centre of Torquay, close to shops, bistros and within a ten minute walk of the seafront and beach.

With period features including original Victorian fireplaces, combined with contemporary décor, this spacious house is ideal for families, with many seaside attractions on offer nearby.

The ground floor comprises a cosy sitting room and also benefits from a separate snug.

The spacious kitchen/diner has doors that open to the rear courtyard, a quiet sheltered spot with seating and interesting plants, perfect for breakfast in the warm climate of The Riviera.

There are three double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower, including a further two bathrooms, which will ensure there is no need to queue in the morning.

The variety of attractions that Torquay has to offer are all within easy strolls, including the stunning Torre Abbey House and Gardens, Jungle Journey Adventure Golf, Livermead Beach and the fabulous palm-lined promenade and Princess Pier.

The pier is the perfect place to stop and gaze out to sea, or to enjoy watching the constant comings and goings in the adjacent marina.

You can also take one of the many sightseeing and fishing boat trips between Torquay, Paignton, Brixham and Greenway, as well as banana boat rides!

The English Riviera is rich in family-friendly beaches, such as Torre Abbey Sands and Corbyn Head with its pretty, colourful beach huts and easy access.

Further around the headland there are more beaches including Meadfoot and Oddicombe Beach in Babbacombe, reached by a quirky old clifftop railway.

This fabulous holiday home provides family accommodation in a central location within the warm microclimate of the English Riviera.
