About the property

One bed ground floor sleeps 3

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.

With sleeping for 2-4 and a ground floor location, this good-sized town facing apartment is ideal for couples or a family seeking comfort and convenience. A pleasant lounge with a sofa bed opens to a contemporary U-shaped kitchen. The apartment also boasts a bathroom with shower over, and large bedroom with queen size bed.

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

A really relaxing holiday at Astor House

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in Torquay many times and was unable to book my usual appartment, I went online to find an alternative and Astor House was the first one I found. Im so glad I did, I booked appartment 11 and have just enjoyed a week there. The entrance to Astor House is very welcoming and I was very impressed when I entered the appartment.

It was nicely decorated and furnished to a high quality with a kitchen/lounge with a nice leather sofa and glass table and chairs and a good size tv. A large bedroom with mirrored wardrobe and plenty of drawers.

The kitchen was very nicely fitted with everything you could need including a washer dryer. There was also a tiled bathroom , all was very clean with hand and bath towels.

One of the best feturess of Astor house for me has to be the garden and the spectacular views over the bay, I spent several hours sitting and enjoying the view! There is a gate in the garden onto Rock walk so the town and harbour are close at hand.

I would definitely recommend Astor House and hope to return next year.

pat and christine.

  • 5 of 5

we both enjoyed our stay at Astor house. The apartment was clean and fresh and nicely decorated. we enjoyed the garden as the weather was lovely but at first we was unsure where we could sit but soon sorted that out. we were glad that we had a put u up bed because we could not manage to open up the sofa bed.

Altogether we had a lovely stay.I would like to point out though, that had there been four of us it would have been a tight squeeze.For two of us it was perfect.You do need to sort out the broken freezer door though as that caused our contents to freeze up then defrost. All in all a lovely stay.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Even though we were staying in the flat on ground level along the road, it was very peaceful and quiet. The house was clean and comfortable, perfect for couples. Torquay centre was a short walk away.

We really enjoyed our stay there. We also appreciated the fact that you gave us the high chair. The unrestricted parking was great, We will definitely be calling back. Kieran, Roisin and Niamh from Ireland.
