    “Had a great week in Stanley Cottage, Torquay.”

    The cottage was clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed for a great holiday. The owner left a small hamper, which was great to walk into after an 8hr drive, and very much appreciated. It is located in a great position, and we regularly walked down to the beach/harbour area (family age ranged from 10yrs to 72yrs). There are also plenty of buses that will take you there if you don't fancy the walk or drive. We got an all day bus ticket for all five of us for only £10, which I believe ...

    The cottage was clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed for a great holiday. The owner left a small hamper, which was great to walk into after an 8hr drive, and very much appreciated. It is located in a great position, and we regularly walked down to the beach/harbour area (family age ranged from 10yrs to 72yrs). There are also plenty of buses that will take you there if you don't fancy the walk or drive. We got an all day bus ticket for all five of us for only £10, which I believe takes you right around the Torbay area (saves parking charges and hassle of driving). The owner of the cottage arranged parking in a secure area in the Church over the road (chargeable), as there is no parking outside the cottage. (1hr loading/unloading) We used the Chinese takeaway just down from the Church twice and we found it very nice. The boat trip to Brixham is recommended (£17 return for 5 people). The model village in Babbacombe is also worth a visit, as is Paignton Zoo. We had great days out in Brixham, Dartmouth and Totnes. My son is already asking if we can go back.

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.

About the location

TORQUAY

Paignton 3.6 miles; Brixham 8.5 miles; Dartmoor 17 miles.

Famous for its sandy beaches, piers, palm trees and plentiful attractions, the popular seaside town of Torquay in South Devon has been attracting visitors for the best part of 200 years. Torquay holds many delights for both families and couples, from an abundance of children’s activities whatever the weather, to coastal walks, restaurants and nightlife. There’s an abundance of amenities with three shopping centres to choose from, along with a great number of good places to eat and drink from elegant gastro pubs set on the water’s edge to traditional pubs, and of course, fish and chip shops. Take a wonderful walk along the clifftops to blow away any cobwebs and enjoy the far-reaching seascapes, or stroll beside the harbour and watch the little boats drift in and out of the bay. Visitors can catch a boat to Brixham or Paignton, try sea angling or a range of water-based activities, or head to the world-famous Paignton Zoo to come face-to-face with the friendly elephants and meerkats. Discover the history of the area with a visit to medieval Torre Abbey or head to Kents Cavern where you can venture underground through a fascinating labyrinth of prehistoric caves. From quiet romantic days by the sea to fun-filled family time together, there are a number of different beaches within easy reach. A stay in Torquay can be as relaxed or as active as you choose and is certain to inspire you to visit again.
