Devon is one of the UKs favourite holiday destinations due to the scenery, good food and great outdoors! Join us in Torquay, to tuck into a cream tea, have a go at surfing or enjoy a good pub lunch after a coastal walk. Astor House Apartments are set in an unrivalled spot of Torquay, overlooking the beach and Tor Bay, a few hundred metres from the town centre. The lavish Victorian Villa boasts two contemporary wings, and offers spectacular self-catering apartments in the heart of the English Riviera.

Torquay has its own warm microclimate and offers an abundance of leisure activities, with 22 miles of coastline offering sailing, walking, or colourful towns to explore. Whether you are looking for a fun-filled family holiday, a romantic coastal break or an activity break, Torbay has opportunities for everything. Known predominantly for the birth of Agatha Christie, the vibrant and cheerful town of Torquay offers a relaxing sea side break, or a town brimming with activities and excitement.

Most apartments come with breath-taking uninterrupted sea views from our south-facing cliff-top location. The apartments are an ideal base to explore the surroundings areas of the fisherman's town Brixham, or the funky town of Totnes. With new restaurants, bars, the marina and high street shops a stone's throw away, there is something to entertain everyone.

Being perched on the coast just above the beach, you can amble along the paths absorbing the panoramic views of the Bay, and not worrying about taking a wrong turn, you're bound to end up somewhere special! After a day of fun, return to the modern and luxurious apartments, to relax and unwind, or head off into town for a delicious dinner and drinks. The apartments provide the space, comfort and freedom a hotel lacks, allowing you to put your own stamp on where you stay.

We offer corporate and winter lets too.

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 was a bit of a nightmare and I couldnt get hold of anyone at either plum locations or 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.

  • 4 of 5

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.
