The property had been renovated to a high standard and we appreciated the good quality of the bedding etc. The property was spotless when we arrived and the owners ensured we had arrived safely. The location was great and we enjoyed a nightly stroll to Babbacombe Downs, with a bakers, butchers and convenience store close by. We used the bus to travel into Torquay on a few occasions which was cheaper than Torquay parking fees. We had a brilliant holiday in Mariners Cottage and I would definitely recommend!!

The cottage was everything as described and more. Cupboards were filled with games and dvds that just added to our enjoyment! The children loved the pool and the area for walking our new pooch!
