The booking process is simple and straight forward by phone or online with a fast response from the Owner. Old Hundredth is well presented and always very clean, warm and cosy. It's located in a lovely village with an excellent pub serving good meals on one side and an ancient and popular church on the other side. The cottage is near to local beaches and walks, and the shops are not too far away by car.

Loved the old style furniture, nice and homely. Would recommend any friends to go. Will be returning in the Summer

It's a lovely place with great attention to detail. It's well equipped with all the things provided that most holiday lets don't provide like towels and toilet rolls to washing up liquid and hand soap. My daughter loves staying here as 'her' room comes with 2 boxes of toys. I could stay in the shower all day. The area is really good - it feels like you're miles away from torquay because it doesnt feel "touristy" but actually the harbour (and some great fish and chip shops) are only 15 mins drive. Would recommend a cream tea at Lulus (near the harbour) and the model village is great fun. We'll defintely be back again I'm sure.
