                                      The property was all that we needed in a lovely quiet corner. The owners greeted us and we're very lovely. Beds very comfy. Free wifi. Nice deep bath.! Definitely stay again. Really liked the personal touch of clotted cream, fresh scones, jam and fresh milk.

                                      just enjoyed waterfront cottage for the first few days with its large garden and stunning view of Torbay. The cottage itself is well equipped. With two large bedrooms. its in a good location to explore Torbay from. its off road parking is also a plus.

                                      When we arrived at the property we couldn't have been happier. The views were stunning and the accommodation certainly makes the most of them. Stunning sea views from all rooms except the en suite. The house was well equipped and very clean. No sign of the damp and mould mentioned in other reviews. We had a quick visit from a local lady who explained she was on hand if needed, she gave us her mobile number (not that we needed it). We found buckets and spades to use on the beach and added crabbing kits for anyone wanting to use them. We stayed with children aged 10-15 and found plenty to do locally. We ventured to the local arcade (excellent, but a little tired), the zoo (lovely), the ponies on the moors (found cream tea!), Paignton (beautiful pier, but not as giving as Goodrington), Torquay, and Brixham for crabbing (caught plenty). We chatted to the fishermen fishing at night near the end huts- some may even let you have a go and hold their catch, if you ask nicely enough! Can't recommend this setting and cottage enough. Would love to return. Thank you for making it so pleasant.
