We couldn't fault it in anyway, Chris and Louise were so lovely and being so close to the beach was amazing. Would definitely recommended to family and friends especially with how reasonable the price is for what you get.

It is a delightful bungalow, very comfortable and welcoming. It really is a home from home stay. The location is excellent not far from Paignton, Brixham, the Steam Train, the Zoo together, with some lovely walks.
