Set in a convenient spot this cute property sits on the outskirts of Torquay. A great base from which to explore all the English Riviera has to offer and the many places of interest that are within easy reach.

Enjoy a romantic getaway on the English Riviera with your loved one and your favourite four-legged pal. This homely apartment is perfectly situated to explore the beautiful beaches along this spectacular stretch of coast, with the unspoilt tranquillity of Babbacombe Downs and Beach within easy walking distance (just over 1 mile). Fabulous woof-friendly attractions, such as Greenway House with its gorgeous walled gardens (10.5 miles away), are also easily accessible by car.

 

This inviting single-storey property, adjoining the owner’s home, offers plenty of creature comforts to create a home-from-home holiday. Set on a quiet residential road and with your own private courtyard, peace and privacy is assured. After a relaxing stroll along the Downs, prepare a hearty meal in the contemporary kitchen and sit together at the dining table overlooking the courtyard. On a warm evening, throw open the French doors so your furry companion can potter in and out to the enclosed outdoor area. Retire to the comfy sofas, with Fido curled at your feet, for a cosy night in front of the TV.

 

Take a stroll along the highest promenade in England at Babbacombe Downs, before descending onto the unspoilt haven that is Babbacombe Beach. The horseshoe-shaped shingle beach is dog friendly all year and, if you’re lucky, during your visit you’ll spot dolphins and seals playing off the shore. Board the Dartmouth Steam Railway at Paignton (5 miles away) and travel in style along the coastal track that was built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel (there’s a small charge for the waggy-tailed one). Hop off at Galmpton to wander around the grounds of Greenway House, Agatha Christie’s former holiday home on the banks of the River Dart. There’s also a delightful cafe where you can sit outside with the pup.

Lovely little annexe in a good location of the town, ten minute walk to mist amenities and a short bus ride to the other towns of Torbay. The annexe is very well equipped, lovely and warm and cosy and has a very comfy bed. The host Andrew was wonderful too. Highly recommended.

Lovely clean little place, private parking space outside the property which made things so much easier. Well equipped and in a great location. Has everything you need for a comfortable holiday base. A couple of extra "tweaks" , (better TV Ariel and a king size bed ) and we wouldn't have wanted to leave.

A lovely, clean, self contained accommodation for a weeks break for two of us and our dog. We liked that there was a gated outside area too. Tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits were left for us on our arrival. The kitchen was well equipped for the evenings we decided to cook. The lounge was comfy and cosy. The bed was comfy too, the wardrobe was Read morespacious with spare hangers. Close to Oddicombe and Babbacombe beaches. A few shops, bars and restaurants 10 mins walk. Hide

cottage advertised as having on-street parking for one car but other people also park there and we were unable to park there 3 days out of the seven and parking is really limited . the shower was very inconsistent, . there is quite a steep step between the kitchen and lounge, no warning was given about this.

Compact property but perfectly ok for two people. We found it very easy to park on the white line outside as instructed, but access to one end of the road could be tricky towards the end of the day, when vehicles are parked on both sides of the road. The property was very clean and quite comfortable, but not being able to dry my hair anywhere near Read morea mirror in the bedroom, due to a lack of sockets was annoying! The hosts were very friendly and helpful and overall we werent disappointed. Hide
