About the property

Modern apartment close to the iconic marina, great restaurants, town and beaches

A newly fitted garden apartment beneath an elegant 1920s grade II listed Villa. Situated in a quiet residential area near to Living Coasts (Torbay's award-winning coastal zoo), and only 300m from Torquay Harbourside and marina with its variety of restaurants, bars, entertainment and fabulous views. Golden sands and warm shallow waters at Torre Abbey Sands are within strolling distance. The beautiful Devon coastline is a joy to explore by bike, or by walking along the breathtaking South West Coast Path which passes beside the property. There are stunning views of the whole Torbay area from nearby Daddyhole Plain.

About Jerry and Catherine Daniell

We are a couple with four children ( our two boys live in France) and have had the privilege of growing up in Torbay and surrounding areas. We love eating out at all of the local restaurants and visiting other great locations nearby such as Dartmouth and Salcombe. Torquay is becoming more and more on the "Food Map" with great local produce. I (Catherine) have a passion for cooking, travel and languages. Jerry loves eating and fine wines! Our other interests in the bay include visiting historical sites and going on long coastal walks with my girls, friends and little French bulldog, Claude. I would always be happy to recommend places to go.

We feel very lucky to live in such a great location and rarely need to use cabs due to the proximity to all of our amenities.

This spacious garden flat is located near Torquay's infamous landmarks. Within a short stroll, you will arrive at our stunning marina,town, favourite restaurants and bars. Beaches are within a 5 minute walk with plenty of coastal walks. There is no need to take your car out !

Lovely property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

In our party was 2 families of 4 and our mum. The property had ample space for all of us and had been decorated to a very high standard. We all loved the little features like dimmable lights in all the rooms and the cupboards were well stocked with essentials. The location of the property is just up the road from the Living Coast which is great for the town centre and we really did have a wonderful stay here.

Would highly recommend the property.

Fabulous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolute gem - a newly built apartment with all mod cons just a short walk away from the harbour. (Slightly longer walking back up the hill!!) We went as 2 families, one with 3 boys under 13 and there was ample room for the 7 of us. We all loved the lighting system which saved any fumbling for switches in the middle of the night and the apartment is comfortable and warm. Lovely comfy beds with nice quality bedding and pillows.

We were out for most of the day and ate out locally, lots of restaurants and bars nearby which are child friendly. This apartment is a winner - we'll definitely book it again.

Cons: Steepish steps down to front door which could be difficult for elderly or anyone with mobility problems. A hand rail would help!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. You were super guests. You left the apartment immaculate. I would never have known there were teenagers staying ! We will look at a rail which is a great idea. For the elderly, we do allow them to go down the slope around the side. We hope you visit again Regards Jerry and Catherine x

Great accommodation in good location

  • 4 of 5

Great accommodation, very clean, hi spec appliances big rooms so ample space for a group or large family you won't feel on top of eachother - photos don't capture how big it is. Great wifi connection. Beautiful kitchen and bathrooms. TV in every bedroom and plenty wardrobe space. Great location in private property means it is nice and quiet yet close to the harbour - just 5 min walk. Owners were welcoming but not intrusive. Provided a dog bed and treats for 'teddy' which was a nice touch. Would highly recommend.
