Thoughtful welcoming touches by the owners very much appreciated and set the tone for a pleasant stay. Apartment offered all we had wished for, superb views, ideal location and interior design/decoration.
Driveway to car park bit tricky, with tight corner at top end and big dipper ride down to numbered parking bay. OK (even fun) if you are a confident driver, otherwise plenty of parking on road outside.
Broadband speed (measured at 10mbs) good enough if you want to watch Sky Go while away from home and if you take a HDMI cable with you the lounge TV has a spare HDMI 2 connection, giving a good picture through the TV.
Nearest part of Goodrington beach (washed by tide) allows dogs all year round and is a bit of a mecca for dog owners, 200 metres further on the dryer 2nd part of beach no dogs are allowed.Dog owners very well behaved and good at cleaning up, no signs of fouling around the area.
Good area for walking, either as 'strollers' like us now or for more of a challenge the South West coastal footpath is on your doorstep. Would loved to try walking from Brixham back to apartment when I was fitter.
If you like steam trains you will love the sights from the apartment of the Paignton to Dartmouth train and its evocative steam whistle as it passes through Goodrington station.
Would I stay again? Very much so.
The house is a delightful blend of contemporary and traditional design, pared-down simplicity that doesn't sacrifice comfort. (An unusually thoughtful bonus is the excellent interior sound insulation, allowing for privacy even among friends.) Spotlessly clean, well-equipped kitchen; great showers and spacious bathrooms. An additional plus is the aerie above the two-story living room space, which allows at least a partial retreat and a cozy reading room.
Nestled in trees, with a view of the pasture in front, sunsets in the evening, the living room/kitchen space is cosy. And then it's an easy walk to the very good nearby pub, The Monks' Retreat, and to the award-winning community shop.
