A beautiful spacious ,light and airy property ,and very well equipped , It felt a privilege to stay there ,simply loved it .

Mr Mark R,

We really enjoyed our stay and will be back in 2020!

Tracey family,

Can this review be added to property reviews: We can only echo earlier revews: a superb apartment in a superb location. Very spacious and very comfortable, stylish and well equipped. Only 3 minutes from Torquay railway station (for our trains to Plymouth and Exeter, both lovely journeys) and 5 minutes to seafront with frequent buses around Torbay. We only used the car for two trips; a visit to Widecombe and Dartmoor then Buckfast Abbey was was simply relaxing on the apartment’s wonderful terrace. We have rented many houes and apartments around Britain and Europe and this is up with the very best. B and JB Durham

Mr Bernard B,
