It is within walking distance to Torquay and a short drive to Paignton. Sharon, the owner, was very helpful and responsive. I would highly recommend this townhouse for families or groups looking for a good base to explore Devon.

Beautiful views, spacious, comfortable. Everything you need. There is no wifi, but I knew this when we booked with Lesley. We took our trusty Vodaphone mobile mifi box, which was blisteringly fast and had great coverage. All of us also had great data coverage on our phones - probably because of the beautiful, elevated position. Will be back!
