It is warm, clean, comfortable and quiet - absolutely perfect for our holiday. Martin and Kim were very welcoming and their guest information packs were really helpful. Would definitely recommend it.

The house catered for all our needs including a push chair, cot, training toilet seat, child umbrella, and more importantly plenty of toys for our little one. The location was great, just a 15 minute walk into Torquay (although coming back the steep hill was a little challenging!) the walk to Meadfoot beach is less of a gradient and easily managed with a push chair. The beach hut is perfect for enjoying fish and chips al fresco and the Meadfoot café does a fantastic breakfast and evening menu. The only negative I can think to say is that the dining table chairs are worn but this did not at all detract from what was a wonderful place to say. We found the house and hot tub to be extremely clean and fresh and would not hesitate to come back again. The host was there when we arrived to ensure we had all we needed, which included a lovely little welcome pack of wine and pizza! perfect after our 5 hours drive and very thoughtful. Excellent!
