Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Torquay - Apartment 8 Astor House Warren Road Torquay TQ2 5TR

Sleeps 4 guests in 1 bedroom

Set within a beautifully converted Victorian villa with contemporary wings overlooking Torre Abbey Sands and Tor Bay, Astor House in Torquay offers stylishly furnished self-catering holiday apartments in the heart of the English Riviera.

Most apartments come with breath-taking uninterrupted sea views from our south-facing cliff-top location. With a quiet residential setting yet close to the beach in central Torquay, this picture-perfect spot is also the ideal base to explore the surrounding area.

This spacious ground floor premier apartment features a spacious open plan living/dining area and kitchen, a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower over. High ceilings and full length triple bay sash windows welcome in coastal light. Sip your morning coffee from your own balcony with spectacular bay views.

Local restaurants, cafes, the marina and the scenic beachfront are all within walking distance and it's also just 500m to the town centre. As well as the many beaches and family entertainment, rugged walking trails on nearby Dartmoor are only a 30-minute drive away as is the cathedral city of Exeter with the beautiful South Hams on your doorstep.

When you’re ready to unwind, our recently updated one and two bedroom apartments offer the kind of contemporary comforts to make you feel right at home, with plush furnishings and high-end amenities throughout. Compared with a hotel room, the much greater space of our fully equipped apartments let you spread out in comfort with your own separate lounge, kitchen and bedroom.

Astor House offers everything needed to relax when you want, for as little or as long as you want, throughout your self-catering holiday in Torquay. We offer corporate and winter lets too.

Following a complete refurbishment, every apartment also offers the following features as standard:

Fast free Wi-Fi

24/7 access

A fully equipped kitchen including a microwave and washer/dryer or dishwasher

Communal laundry

Flat screen digital TV with DVD with dvds, games and books

Limited reserved parking at £5 a day or unrestricted roadside parking

Cots and highchairs available on request

Stunning view over bay

  • 4 of 5

My second visit to Astor Hse. I travel out of season (Oct/Nov) due to my work, and find Astor Hse a true pleasure. Apt 8 and 9 have huge bay windows leading onto good sized furnished terraces, which look south over 'Torbay' giving stunning views. The apts are warm and spacious and provide everything you need during your visit. The shops, theatre, cinema, cafes and bars are all close, but bare in mind there are steep steps to reach all of these. The manager (Jacqui) and owner (Steve) provide very good communication.

Astor house

  • 4 of 5

Staying at Astor house was really lovely and would stay there again. I would go direct next time as booking.com was a bit of a nightmare and I couldnt get hold of anyone at either plum locations or booking.com to get back to me as they took money out of my account without notifying me first. But I did get it sorted eventually and it was a nice place to stay.

Excellent view.

Had a lovely 3 day stay in this apartment. What a view! The setting was absolutely stunning and we hope to return sometime. Thank you!

Parking can be an issue but we paid extra to reserve a parking bay outside the property.

Torquay Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This is a very comfortable apartment. The information on the Internet implies that the unit has a washer/ dryer. This is not the case. We were able to use the washers located in the basement, but this is not what we were looking for and expecting. That was the only disappointment. The walk to and from town was a good workout! Overall, we enjoyed the apartment and our visit to this part of England.

Owner's Response: We have started changing some washer dryers for dishwashers and have added a communal washing facility as well. Any opinions on this would be welcome before we do any more! Steve Mittler Plum Holidays

Lovely view

  • 4 of 5

Lovely view of the beach from the balcony. Very nice to sit on the balcony but you do hear the traffic from below on the balcony. The wi-fi works perfectly but has some blind spots on the balcony. The freezer compartment in the fridge was very icy and made everything very cold. The containers with soap and lotion in the bathroom was a nice feature.

The sofa bed in living room was a bit old and not so comfortable but it works for children. The bed in the bedroom was good.
