Wonderful, charming house that really welcomes you in a relaxed atmosphere. A lot of attention to small details that makes you feel right at home. We really enjoyed the big stove with three ovens in the kitchen. With two really good supermarkets nearby, you can make yourself a treat (as we love to do during our holidays). Another aspect that we were pleasantly surprised by, was the garden. It offers enough space to sit with 4 to 6 people, and in the summer it catches the sun from early in the morning until late in the evening!! Oh, and on behalf of our kids: pretty fast WIFI: at least 40 MB/sec. Streaming on multiple devices simultaneously is possible. Leon - 1st August 2019
This is a great place to stay. Clean, tidy, and everything you need for a home from home stay. Plenty of free parking (and close to the train station), well equipped kitchen and fast wifi. Nicholas - 20th June 2019
The house was lovely. We stayed as we were going to a family wedding. The house was very clean, had all the amenities and had a really homely feel to it. In a convenient location, and not too far at all from Torquay's Pier. I would certainly stay again, and recommend the house to anybody.Neil - 15th June 2019
Beautiful cottage. Thoroughly enjoyed our family time there. A real home from home and would highly recommend to anyone thinking of this location. Would definitely use again.Andy - 1st June 2019
