Description

Aptly named 'The Bonting' after the idyllic Shirley Hughes books, this 3 bed town house conjures up a dreamy retreat in which fond family memories are made.

The retreat's nostalgic ambience combines with a chic coastal-inspired interior and a central Torquay location; for a holiday home that ticks all the right boxes!

The pretty former pub offers newly-renovated accommodation across three quirky yet practical family-friendly floors and equipped with Wi-Fi. Ideally catering for flexible groups of 6, 'The Bonting' lets you relax, entertain and make the most of Torquay's top visitor highlights.

Inside, an inviting lower ground floor featuring a fully-equipped spot lit kitchen & diner with accompanying snug area and direct access out to a private decked terrace with garden sets the scene for carefree summertime enjoyment, as well as ambient wintertime stays.

The retreat's equally light and airy ground floor features a welcoming family living room with 42" Smart TV with DVD player and movie library. Couples can also enjoy a guilt-free slumber on this floor, to the stylish master double bedroom with en suite shower.

The interior of the 1st floor enjoys a playful twist and features a coastal-inspired 2nd double bedroom and a 3rd nautical-themed twin bedroom. A lovely modern fitted bathroom with bath tub with shower over & glass screen (fitted after the photos were taken); completes the layout of the family-friendly upper floor.

Complemented by a large under stair utility cupboard fitted with a washing machine, a box of kids toys, a high chair and close proximity to public parking; guests can easily kick back and feel right at home.

Enjoying a lovely sunny aspect, the inviting end-of-terrace home enjoys a convenient location very close to Torquay's wide spectrum of shops, its wide selection of award-winning restaurants and the buzzing harbour side & festoon lit promenade.

From soaking up water sports and a classic beach day at Torre Abbey Sands to exploring the rich abundance of world-class heritage attractions, enjoying the family-friendly amusements and experiencing the plethora of leisure pursuits, fine dining venues and dynamic night life, Torquay offers a top year-round destination for making those precious holiday moments count!

With Torquay's top coastal highlights, visitor attractions and modern day amenities on the doorstep, the central location of 'The Bonting' places guests exactly where they need to be.
Setting the scene for timeless seaside stays, the gem of the English Riviera is as much a group getaway hotspot as a family holiday destination. So take on a picturesque Golf course with friends, soak up some sun & sea at Torre Abbey Sands and Meadfoot Beach (the favourite childhood haunt of Agatha Christie) before wining and dining at one of the many fabulous restaurants, as the sun goes down and the buzzing bars come alive.

Sea-faring families and friends can make waves with a 'sea-fari', an idyllic boat trip, surfing, sailing, fishing and a day out at Living Coasts, or with one of the many other water sport opportunities on offer.

Ideal for cultural distractions too, Torquay is home to the Torquay Museum, Torre Abbey Historical House & Gardens, Cockington Court and the Palace Theatre (for those seeking a classic matinee moment or evening out).

Perfect for making the most of the outdoors, Torquay also offers the perfect excuse to take in the spectacular coast and country scenery by foot, canoe, horse or by bike; with easy access to Cockington Country Park, the South West Coastal Path and the nearby Dartmoor National Park.

Other nearby holiday distractions include Paignton Zoo, Dinosaur World, Kents Cavern, and the treasure trove of 40+ National Trust properties just waiting to be discovered in the local area (including Agatha Christie's Greenway House).

Easily-accessible too, Torquay is well-connected by train station, coach station, local bus routes and close proximity to the M5 and airports of Plymouth (62 minutes' drive away) and Exeter International (43 minutes' drive away).

Notes:This property has a £350 Good housekeeping deposit, which is payable to Discovery Holiday Homes with the balance of your holiday OR at the checkout you can choose to pay the £5 per person Good housekeeping deposit waiver instead.

Reviews

“The Bonting has been beautifully refurbished with all mid-cons and is a lovely house that easily accommodated our family of 5.”Lucy & family - 1st June 2016
“This house is perfect for a family or bunch of friends to enjoy Torquay. The area is hilly which sets the scene for some stunning views. We enjoyed sitting in the garden with a great view in the spring sunshine - I felt like I was abroad!The house contains everything we could need and looks nice too, a fresh modern crisp décor with some homely touches. We would recommend staying there. Sue is a great host and recommendation to eat at the seafront restaurant 'On The Rocks' was a winner.”Alice from London - 1st April 2016
Stayed for a long weekend in the Easter holidays. With a children's play park near by, and the centre of Torquay, its harbour, beach and the French Market a mere ten-minute stroll away the house is perfectly located.Immaculate throughout, with a real holiday feel The Bonting provides a home from home for the family. The lounge is the perfect snug to settle down and watch a film with loved ones, while the downstairs living space has everything you need to entertain while preparing dinner.Without doubt, I will be making a repeat booking here! Clive Hill, Berkshire - 1st March 2016
