About the property

Magnificent walks from the bottom of our Secret Garden in a Quaint 2-bed cottage

Stone built period cottage full of charm and character with stunning views overlooking the sea with direct access to the Coastal Path which winds its way around the picturesque cliffs and seaside of Torquay. Meadfoot beach is only a few minutes walk down some steps and there you will find a pebble bathing beach, gorgeous beach huts, a cafe so ensure you bring your swim suit. The cottage itself boasts all the modern comforts and amenities you would expect in modern living - from unlimited broadband, to tvs in each bedroom and living room, full cable package, coffee and tea makers, granite kitchen counters packed with all mod cons. From the comfort of our mattresses to the high quality of the linen we provide, your stay at the cottage is sure to give you that much needed good night's sleep ready for the next day of exploring Torquay and beyond, or just stay in and unwind on the full width suspended sun-trap deck and either marvel in the tranquility of this natural setting or utilise the nearby Spa facilities, enjoy the quintessential English High tea served at the Hotel next door whilst taking in the breathtaking views over the sea to the peninsula beyond.

Lovely property and a great location

  • 4 of 5

Ideal location for both families and couples - only 15 minutes walk from town centre and 5 minutes from a small beach. Beware however - plenty of hills to climb!!!

Property is very well equipped and includes Wi-fi and Sky TV in the lounge and bedrooms.

A relaxing haven

  • 5 of 5

A find! The secret passage to the coastal path was marvellous, if a little tricky in the dark! We had some lovely walks in the sunshine up to Thatchers point and picnicked overlooking the sea that was as striking as the Amalfi coast. The cottage catered for every need with plenty of hot water for a bath after a longish walk. It was close enough to the town to walk for a night out at The Elephant Restaurant which we would recommend and a stumble back (we had the tasting menu with the tasting wines!). As it was autumn the beaches where not busy and the cafe on Blackpool Sands served good organic food at a reasonable price though I'm not sure my large glass of wine at lunchtime was the best idea before a 3 mile uphill walk. The cafe close to our cottage on Meadfoot beach served a good cup of tea and cake (we didn't eat there so can't comment on the food) and has a view straight out to sea for sitting and contemplating on life. A lovely, relaxing holiday with plenty to do and see.
