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

Beautiful and Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Delightful, Idyllic with lovely views over the garden towards the sea with the birds singing was

out of this world, perhaps this is why we have had more than one holiday here.

the Cottage is so delightful and kept so clean with everything you need with the welcome you get from the owners we feel like we are family.

Beautiful house with great character and fabulous views.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous Christmas break at Monkswell Park Cottage. Jenny and Julian were very helpful before and during our stay. As they live next door to the cottage they are very convenient should you have a problem , which luckily we didn’t. They decorated the house for Christmas and we felt very much at home. The house has a beautiful lawned garden with views of the sea and a private steeply stepped access to a little cove. There are at least 2 very nice restaurants within walking distance. We would love to visit in the summer and hope to return. I would highly recommend staying here.

The house is beautifully situated. Breakfasting on the terrace with the view to the English Channel is stunning. House is nicely furnished. Hosts are welcoming.

But, be aware that none of the rooms in the accommodation have any view to speak of. The beautiful terrace room pictured is part of the main house - not the annexe. The best view of the sea is from a landing window and the second best is from the bedroom without the en-suite bath.

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.
