Stretching around the coast line from the edges of Plymouth and Brixham up to the border of Dartmoor National Park, it comprises a total area of 342 square miles. With a history dating back to Anglo-Saxon times and a strong naval feel, the area is a huge draw for visitors eager to sample the sea air, the many attractions and the walking environment on offer.

We were three couples and a single who holiday once a year to spend time on the local shores investigating local marine life. The accommodation worked well although there was a gulf between the grandeur of the master bedroom and the other bedrooms, particularly those on the basement floor. When we arrived there was a noticeable smell of damp in the basement. During the course of the week this was remedied by the use of the dehumidifier provided. Avondale is well-appointed with particularly good provision of fridge and freezer space. The kitchen was generally well-equipped although we felt we would have appreciated more bowls for mixing, serving bowls. The utility room in the basement was fit for purpose and ideal for storing all those items you don't want to be falling over during the course of your stay. One thing we thought would have been helpful would be hooks on the backs of bedroom doors for robes etc, and somewhere to air our damp towels in our bedrooms. The other thing we found a bit of a trial is the slow internet connection. When we were all using our various devices, which was several times a day, getting connected was painfully slow and some websites were evidently too large to open at all. We found the games room to be a useful amenity. The views from the large lawn are superb. Parking space was adequate, with care we parked four cars on the drive. There is a deep rut which is not clearly seen until you drive over it, at the beginning of the grass drive which takes you to the gate.

Torcross is such a delightful place, but staying at Cliff House made it even better because of the stunning vistas! What a view of of the bay! Absolutely stunning views from all aspects of the house but in particular the master bedroom suite with wonderful views out to lovely cove beach from the luxurious en suite bathroom. The house had great amenities too and there was plenty of space to unwind and relax. The outdoor balconies and terraces were very special and a great place to admire the views, soak up some sun and enjoy a glass of bubbly or two! Our dog also had a great time as there was plenty of space for him to run about and with the steps down to cove beach just a stones throw away, he had a great time running on the beach and swimming in the sea. Our only criticism of Cliff House is that we can't live there permanently!! We highly recommend Cliff House and will definitely be returning in the near future

Also had a private hot tub which was all set up and ready to go for us which was great . The lodge its self was very clean and everything was catered for .Was nice to meet the owner Sharon who was really nice and helpful every text and email was always answered very quickly . Also on site was a swimming pool and leisure centre which we were given free passes for . Overall i would recommend anyone to stay here its great for all ages.
