It's well situated to walk into town, although we took a few days to adjust to the Torquay hills! We actually found it more comfortable to walk via the road rather than the steps as the gradient was gentler on the knees for my mother who does suffer some trouble. There's a lot to do just within walking distance of the apartment, from Torre Abbey to the Living Coast, and Babbacombe Model Village and Kents Caverns are literally a ten minute hop in the car and definitely worth visiting. You can also take trips by boat or bus and steam train to explore further afield without having to get the car out. We booked down by the inner harbour for a trip which was bus, steam train and shuttle bus that took us to the National Trust property Greenways, Agatha Christie's 'holiday home'. Can also recommend the Hole in the Wall - Torquays oldest tavern - for good food and friendly staff. All in all, an excellent base to come back to in this area full of interesting places to visit - we ran out of time! Thank you to Gregg, the owner, who was very friendly and helpful when I quizzed him on the area both before and after booking.
