    “The cottage was very comfortable and one of the cleanest holiday homes we have stayed in.”

    The hosts, Richard and Joanna were extremely helpful and welcoming, but not intrusive. The location was fine, just a short walk into the town and the harbour, but a slightly longer walk back uphill. The only drawback of the property for us was the bathroom being downstairs.

Spend time together snuggled up on the sofas of the living/dining room, with a host of home comforts.

Move through into the galley style kitchen, where you'll find everything you could need to prepare your favourite meals, before adjourning to the courtyard setting outside making a lovely spot to enjoy a tasty treat in the summer months.

Also on the ground floor you can find the sparkling bathroom, offering guests the option of both a bath and a shower, you can choose how best to prepare for your day of adventure.

Up on the first floor sit two restful bedrooms, the master is a king-size room with its own television and a twin room.

The layout of this property is perfect for a family of four, with ample storage space and a homely spot to snuggle down in at the end of each evening.

The local area of Torquay boasts a plethora of fun no matter what time of year you're visiting; from the simplicities of quaint shops where you can pick up a souvenir to take back home, alongside a wide selection of eateries to celebrate a special occasion in, to the prehistoric caves of Kents Caverns, giving you tours around a variety of caves with rocks from 400 million years ago, or for a simple family-fun day out, laze on the golden sands of the town's beach before roaming the Victorian shopping experience of the Bygones.

There's plenty to explore in the local area, whether you're seeking a day around sea life at Living Coasts or a day rich in history at one of its museums, there's something for every taste, or why not take a boat ride to either Brixham or Paignton to discover their family-friendly attractions?
