About the property

Monkswell Park

Monkswell Park dates back to the 1920s, and is described in Pevsner's Buildings of England as 'The most distinguished property tucked into the slopes overlooking Hope Cove with wings angled to create a protected terrace with veranda facing the sea.' With fabulous sea views over Lyme Bay Monkswell Park benefits from an extremely rural and quiet, picturesque cliff top location, but is only one and a half miles from Torquay town centre, and approximately twenty miles from the historic city of Exeter. There are excellent local shops and restaurants nearby, and a sandy beach within half a mile of the property. There is also 'near-private' access to a pebble beach from the one and a half acre lawn garden. The nearest railway station is Torquay although Newton Abbot is only seven miles away. The nearest airport is Exeter

Lovely first family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Monkswell Park Garden Rooms. We only wish we had more time to lounge around and enjoy the incredible ocean views; we were so busy exploring Torquay, Exeter, Plymouth, Dartmouth and Agatha Christie's summer house Greenway, high above the River Dart. This was our first trip with our three-month-old, and Jenny and Julian made sure our stay was as pleasant as could be. This is a lovely property ideally situated along the Southwest Coast Path for easy hiking into neighboring villages. We could not recommend this rental more highly!

Monkswell Park is located on the South West Coastal Path, benefits from an extremely rural and quiet picturesque cliff top location and yet is only one and a half miles from the centre of Torquay. It is and just half a mile from the nearest public sandy beach complete with it's own beach cafe', and there is access to a near-private pebbled beach from the one and a half acre lawned garden, though please note the steps down to the beach are steep, can be strenuous, and may be dangerous for unaccompanied children.

Web Site - please ask for details.

Monkswell Park is situated right on the coastal path for walking, and within easy reach of Dartmoor, the historic towns of Dartmouth and Exeter, many tourist attraction, and recreational and sporting facilities, including; swimming, picturesque harbours and marinas around Torbay.
