Have been coming to monkwell for 10 years on and off. The garden the views are just the best. It's a great place to explore or hideaway.

The property and gardens are very well maintained. Greeted on arrival by John the owner who was keen to show us round the property which he appears very proud of (and rightly so ) Our apartment was very clean and tastefully decorated. Lots of nice touches in room and you could tell the owners had put a lot of thought into the extras both in the room and available to borrow around the property . They have even provided picnic baskets and fold away chairs you can borrow if you want to go for a picnic around this lovely area of the country. The apartment was nice size for 2 people for the week we were there. Only slight grumble was the size of the bathroom but understand the difficulty in converting a property like this and keeping all the features is going to mean compromises and it didn't detract from our stay in any way. Apartments are at the top of a steep hill. It is a nice stroll down to Torquay harbour (about 15 mins walk ) .Coming back up can be hard but a taxi only costs £5 from harbour. I would definitely recommend staying at these apartments as they are very good value for money and cater for both adults and children
