A delightful bungalow and location

5 of 5
This was our second time to stay at The Palms. 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.
