The perfect romantic retreat!
Kilmorie Lodge is a sunny, semi-detached, spacious one-bedroom 'reverse level' cottage with breath-taking views from the first-floor lounge balcony with far reaching sea views across Meadfoot Beach and Torbay.
Perfectly located being on the doorstep of the wonderful natural scenery of the South West Devon coast and the large selection of amenities & attractions of the vibrant coastal resort town of Torquay, this lovely spacious holiday cottage provides the perfect romantic escape!
Access to Kilmorie Lodge is up a sloped path which leads to the garden and back door which leads into a fully fitted kitchen and through to a wheelchair friendly wet room and into a spacious, ground floor bedroom suite furnished with a comfy 5ft king-size bed with bedside tables, mirror, wardrobes, sofas, large TV & DVD player. Sea views can be enjoyed from a large picture window and the pretty garden views are seen from the French doors which lead out to the enclosed garden, planted with Azaleas & palm trees to suit the mild and sunny Torquay climate. Alfresco dining can be enjoyed out in the garden as well as on the upstairs balcony each serviced by a kitchen on each level!
The wet room is fitted with a power shower, grab rails, hand basin & toilet leading off the kitchen and next to the bedroom door. The ground floor also features solid wood flooring and some fine antique pieces for a touch of refinement and comfort.
The novelty factor is by way of two fully fitted kitchens - one downstairs for practical ease with alfresco dining in the garden and a second kitchen upstairs in the very sunny, spacious living/dining room. Both kitchens are fitted with all the desired cooking appliances including full height fridge freezers, electric hob, oven, dishwasher & washing machine (downstairs only).
And the cottages 'pièce de résistance' is the upstairs sea view living room & balcony where guests can enjoy relaxing on spaciousness and comfort while taking in the beautiful views through the balcony French windows which can be opened fully to the energising sea breezes that roll in. The second fully fitted kitchen and dining area is there for easy enjoyment and is the perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine and a lovely meal in the evening, a cup of coffee and a good book in the day or to enjoy snuggling up in front of the TV.
From the property, the 22 mile of glorious South Devon coastline is easily accessible from the nearby South West coastal path. Guests can enjoy exploring and marvelling over the dramatic heritage shore with its beaches, woodland trails and picturesque seaside towns including Dartmouth and Salcombe.
The vibrant seaside resort town of Torquay with its wide selection of restaurants, bars and shops and presented to visitors in a picturesque Victorian era resort with palm-lined promenade, pleasure grounds and grand sweeping Regency crescents with harbour walks and local visitor attractions provides the ideal place from which to explore the breath taking surrounding area and coastline, which still provides the perfect holiday escape today.
Torquay's waterfront is the focus of life in the town. Here you'll find the palm-lined promenade, seafront gardens, a lively harbour and an international marina. The Living Coasts attraction adds to the variety of the new waterfront and the illuminated bridge is a great backdrop to a relaxing evening drink. Yet within minutes of Torquay town centre there are beautiful beaches easily accessible by foot, road or sea. There is an abundance of pavement cafés, Torquay pubs, restaurants and nightlife in Torquay, good quality shops and a host of attractions to suit every interest.
Nearby guests can also enjoy the picturesque Cockington Country Park, the popular Paignton Zoo, the many fine Golf Clubs and the geographical wonder that is Kents Cavern just up the road. The Torquay coast also offers a wide range of sport activities to enjoy from sailing, surfing, fishing to golf, canoeing and horse riding.
Several of our beaches hold coveted awards for cleanliness and water quality. Torbay is a naturally sheltered bay, creating a haven for ships of all shapes and sizes in stormy weather. Occasional easterly winds create our own winter storms however and this is when beachcombers make their best finds. Keep an eye on the Torquay weather page!

I would highly recomend Kilmorie Studio for its beautiful location,and well equipped Studio.For those who enjoy walking this is ideal as the distancd to walk from the Studio to the centre of Torquay is around 1.7miles and its quite steep but so well worth it to see the spectacular views.We would definately choose this one again.Carol Hall, Evesham - 1st June 2016
This studio is perfect for a couple the room is light and airy with separate well equipped kitchen and bathroom. Beautifully situated to watch the sea lapping Meadfoot beach from the large picture window or in the pretty garden with the added bonus of listening to the birds in the wood across the road. Ideal location close to bustling Torquay and Babbacombe.Discovery Holidays made booking Kilmorie Studio easy keeping us well informed and up to date. We hope to be back.Heather Kelsey, Chingford - 1st May 2016

The views are just amazing and can not get enough of this fabulous place, sadly now we will have to wait till next summer then hopefully we will be back again enjoying this amazing view- a joy to wake up to. Have to say the garden looks great, nothing for me to do! Keep up the good work, it makes such a difference (just seed the lawn). Take care my lovely.Ann, Alan, Charlie & Hugo (our pups) from Staffs. - 1st September 2015

We enjoyed a walk along the coastal path into Torquay and spent a good few hours exploring & enjoying the antics of the Young Farmers!! Definitely hope to stay here again. Thank you!Laura & Grant, Gloucester - 1st April 2015
The listing is accurate- a lovely property with nice views across the bay. It's on a very quiet road and so was a very peaceful stay, whilst being within easy reach of Torquay and the rest of Torbay. The property was furnished to a high standard, with a modern kitchen and bathroom (a fantastic shower in particular). The check in and out procedures were very clear.Catherine, UK - 1st April 2015
The cottage was lovely and everything was great- location, weather, and the cottage was really well set up for a comfortable and cosy stay. We'd like to come back! One suggestion- make the arrival instructions a little clearer (explain to visitors that they have to walk up the little ramp and through the gate) as we found ourselves trying to break into one of the neighbour's flats at 10pm at night! The nice neighbours next door kindly showed us our proper entrance. Thank you Robin for a beautiful and relaxing stay, looking forward to the next time.Helen Pynor, Torbay - 1st December 2014
Beautiful location and studio! Spent two nights and two days here. Was very easy to find, park and receive the keys. It was very clean, warm and comfortable. Extremely please and can't wait to visit again!Samantha Woodcraft, Milton Keynes - 1st December 2014
Fantastic what a blessing, amazing apartment with attention to detail, One of the best self catering accomodations we have stayed in, in the UK. We tried the Rock Fish chip shop you recommended to us, the fish and chips were lovely we ate there twice. Thanks and good bless you.Shelene, Sheffield - 1st September 2014
Well here we are again at the end of yet another holiday. The weather not been the best but, and I mean a BIG but; this studio is still amazing after all these years of coming. It has a charm of its own, just like the owner. Location & views to die for ~ never tire of this fantastic place. Loved our catch up. See you soon, maybe Oct, who knows, if not July. Really don't want to go.. Thank you Robin, it's been lovely & speak to you very soon.Ann & Alan, Elliot & Charlie, Staffs. - 1st August 2014
Just would like to say thank you. The property was exactly how it was advertised, great view and the interior was really nice. Really nice place with a great view.

5* stars ~ We had a fantastic time at Kilmorie, beautiful apartment, fantastic views and very friendly neighbours and landlord. We were very sorry to leave such a tranquil setting.Richard & Yelena, Fife - 1st November 2013
We are coming to the end of a perfect fortnight's holiday at the Kilmorie Studio and we don't want to go home! It has been one good day after another. The studio is wonderful and the surrounding Torbay area is magnificent. We can't wait to come back.Chris & Dee, West Yorkshire - 1st July 2013
We have both had an amazing weekend staying at Kilmorie Lodge. The Studio is truly wonderful and exceeded our expectations. It was warm, comfortable & had everything (if not more) than we needed. We particularly enjoyed a home-made Cappuccino from the coffee machine, whilst looking out at the beautiful sea views. The bed is better than our one at home, very comfortable! The Studio is in a perfect location, with lots to do in the area. Wish we didn't have to leave. Thank you very much Robin for providing us the opportunity to stay here, we hope to come back in the near future! Oh and the Saffron Restaurant you recommended made us the best curries we have had in a long time!! We were also very fortunate to have the sun shining, considering it was snowing in Essex when we left!Georgina & Steve, Essex - 1st March 2013

We had had a lovely week back in our seaside home. This studio flat is amazing, every time we come back (three times in less than four months!), we never tire of the fantastic view. Will hopefully be back late June/July. The garden looking great now after its little trim, ha! ha!. Really do not want to leave.Ann & Allan, Staffordshire - 1st October 2012
The Studio is everything you could wish for (spotless). Location & views, you could be anywhere in the world! Only one regret ~ we have to go home!Fitz & Sue, Leicester - 1st September 2012
What a lovely studio, so well appointed and with beautiful views out to sea from the lounge! The little garden is a real sun trap and we enjoyed sitting there with a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Having been here for 5 nights, we also didn't want to leave but we will definitely come here again.Tony & Rosemary - 1st September 2012
The Studio is absolutely fabulous! Stunning views & location ~ would love to live here. Lovely to spend some time with you Robin too! Thanks for making us feel so welcome :)Will & Kate - 1st September 2012

Once again a lovely stay. Really enjoyed meeting you Robin, you are a lovely man. Hope to see you again next year. We will go out for afternoon tea and our treat next time!Ann & Alan, Staffs - 1st July 2012
We spent a much to short week in this absolutely stunning apartment. Simply fantastic, even with all the liquid sunshine we had. There's still so much to see in the area that we didn't have chance to see, that we need to come back. Tasty cream teas in Exeter's 'Tea on the Green', Cathedral close. Thank you for having us, we plan to be back one day!Tanja, Jurgen & Bonnie, Germany - 1st July 2012
On Arrival ~ very impressed. Flat elegant, comfortable, well fitted out & clean. Nice welcome from Robin. Oh wow! Proper wooded clothes hangers, not nasty wire or plastic. View so marvelous, may have to sleep in the garden. Hometime ~ It's been a wonderful week. Couldn't have found anywhere nicer to stay. Don't want to leave! Until the last day, the weather was perfect. Staying here has been a treat for the eyes and the soul. I hope to be able to come back. P.P. The weather turned out fine on the last days after all. Really don't want to leave now!Lesley, Roddey & Jazzey - 1st July 2012
