LOCATED JUST 10 MINUTES WALK FROM THE BEACH

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Torquay - Beautiful Character Cottage in Charming Village

Sleeps 4/5. 2 bedroom, character Victorian cottage in a quiet mews road in upmarket area. Charming location just 2 minutes walk from restaurants, pub, shops and only a 10 minute walk from the nearest family beach. Shopping centre of Torquay is just 1 mile away. Paignton and Teignmouth are 4 and 6 miles away.

Rosalia Cottage has two bedrooms and sleeps up to 5 people. Situated in the charming village of Wellswood, on the outskirts of Torquay in a pretty location, close to many beaches. Our holiday cottage has been tastefully modernised and fully equipped to provide you with a comfortable holiday home. Though in a peaceful mews road and conservation area, Rosalia is only half minute walk from local shops and 5 minutes from many beaches and secluded coves. The nearest cove is Anstey's Cove, quarter mile away; an enchanting, sheltered, shingle and rock beach, which was once a smuggler's haven. Alternatively, a wooded walk for half mile brings you to Meadfoot Beach which is the nearest sandy beach and perfect for families. The locality includes designated heritage sights and the nearby heritage coast is served by many footpaths. A short stroll down the road will lead you past many wonderful restaurants, which includes an Italian and a French restaurant as well as a delicious bakery and cafe.

COTTAGE

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage is basic but suitable for a small family. The only real down point was the small plain back garden. That said the location is excellent for Torquay and surrounding areas and very good value for money.

Owner's Response: Thank you Leon for your nice review. The back garden is more of a courtyard really. We have provided a patio table and chairs so that guests can enjoy alfresco dining in the summer months. But you are right about the great location, being just a few minutes walk from the beach, as well as restaurants, a nice pub and shops etc.

ROSALIA COTTAGE, WELLS WOOD, TORQUAY

  • 5 out of 5
Situated in the prosperous community of WellsWood one mile down the hill from the sea front harbour of Torquay, Rosalia Cottage really is a great base for a peaceful holiday in Torquay. We've visited twice now, 3 years ago with 2 teenagers and the dog and this summer my husband and I and the dog.
No fuss booking and collecting keys and easy to follow instructions for accessing the property.
Cottage is clean, comfy beds, well kitted refurbished kitchen, comfortable sitting area for 2 (not quite as comfy if more and staying in much), telly, dog friendly with back garden and sitting out space that gets the sun until mid afternoon. Friendly community so we were comfortable sitting out the front once sunshine went from the back.
Well stocked quality Co-op and a number of deli's with high quality bread, savouries and cakes no more than 300 metres away. Quality Pub with good food, great real ale, nice sitting out area also no more than 300 metres away. Good neighbours to the cottage who live there rather than holiday makers. This is a friendly community in its own right that goes on whether tourists are there or not. Holiday makers drop into the community rather than being a holiday makers community. No hint of any trouble or anti social behaviour, really relaxing and to be honest would be a great place to live.
Pleasant 1 mile walk down to Torquay if turn left out of the cottage.
Some great real ale Pubs in the harbour area of Torquay including a good old Wetherspoons on the front. Also a mix of Chip Shops, takeaways, Burger joints and then real quality Restaurants. Something for everybody.
Very pleasant walk over park land to the sea if turn left out of the cottage. This walk has woods and water to the right hand side and then a number of properties worth ?1million+ on the left hand side. There is also a recreational field for dog walking 300 metres away which again has a path to the sea.
Weather was great when we stayed.
We'd certainly visit again.

FISHING WEEKEND

  • 4 out of 5
Myself and two friends Chose Rosalia initially because of it's location as we wanted to do some sea fishing. Unfortunately the weather wasn't kind and we didn't do much but this didn't detract from our enjoyment. It is ideally situated if you wish to get into Torquay but we found a great pub around the corner and spent every afternoon in there. The cottage itself was Clean and tidy with a well equipped kitchen. On the whole represents excellent value for money.
Many thanks.

COTTAGE WELLSWOOD

  • 2 out of 5
first of all the area is lovely , the cottage was clean , but the furniture in the living room was not adequate!! we were there for 2wks only 2 of us .so how a family of more than 2 would cope I don't know , one chair the spring had come through . the back yard needs a lot of tlc so not very nice to sit out there ! also we did not know before we arrived that you had to pay for the gas ,you had a card to top up with , but the area is lovely and the people friendly .

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words regarding the cleanliness of the cottage and it's location. Wellswood is certainly a lovely area, only a short walk to the beach and even closer to some great amenities including a nice pub, several restaurants, cafe, bakery, delicatessen, wine merchant, grocery etc. We didn't know about the spring in the chair, but this chair has now been replaced. It's a shame this guest did not inform us about that during her visit as our caretakers would have been able to sort this problem out quite quickly. It's only our guests who use the chairs in the lounge after all: our cleaners and caretakers are too busy cleaning to take time out to relax in a chair! So if we are not told of the problem we cannot sort it. In addition to this chair there is also a sofa bed and another armchair. The outside area at the back of the cottage is a courtyard, not a garden. We provide a patio table and chair so guests can sit out in the sunshine. I'm not sure what Hilda was expecting. There is no lawn, but it is fine for what it is. We do advise all guests about the gas card in the information pack which is sent out before the holiday.
