The location is great for a base to see the Torbay area. Ken and Kathy made this an easy holiday as they helped with great communications throughout the booking and checking in and through the duration of our stay. Everything was available for us and our son including travel cot, high chair, children's cutlery and crockery. The Kents pub is a few doors away and does good pub food and a selection of shops and restaurants are down the road. We had a great week and would recommend !

The apartment is well equipped, comfortable and has the most beautiful views from the huge windows. Our hosts Cavan and Sarah were there to greet us and show us around. Nothing was too much trouble and took time to talk about places to visit and make us feel very welcome. The apartment was well placed with coastal path right on its doorstep and views to die for. The facilities were fantastic clean and very well looked after. Fresh flowers from the garden a lovely touch. We will be booking again.
