Great views of the sea and surrounding coast with easy parking outside the property. Perfect base to explore Devon and Cornwall with great local shops for all our needs if we didn't eat out. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

It was so cosy and comfortable, a real home from home and had everything you could need for a weekend away. Couldn't recommend it enough. The cottage is in a great spot with pubs and cafes in walking distance and we had a lovely meal at the kents pub next door. Torquay harbour is in walking distance (about 20 minutes away) and it's in a great spot for exploring all of the pretty coastal towns. We will definitely be returning again in the future. Thanks Cathy and Ken for a great weekend.
