Fabulous location close to Torquay marina, beaches, coastal footpath, yacht club, boat trips across the bay to Brixham and to Dartmouth, fishing and wild life cruises, Living Coasts, steam railway, theatre, excellent cafe's, bars and restaurants, including the Michelin starred Elephant and the brilliant Number 7 Fish Bistro, an easy walk from the shops and right on the coastal footpath with pretty well everything else you might need on hand. There are a lot of pretty, interesting, small towns nearby including Totnes, Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Salcombe. The journey to Kingsbridge from Dartmouth along the coast must be amongst the pretttiest trips in the world. There are several excellent National Trust properties nearby, amongst them Coleton Fishacre, with its out of this world gardens, Agatha Christie's home, Torre Abbey, several castles and magnificent Dartmoor close by. The apartment is within yards of the water with the marina on one side and Beacon Cove on the other and within an easy and enjoyable walk to Meadfoot Beach and Torre Abbey Sands. The apartment is peaceful, comfortable, well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, and all usual kitchen applicances and interestingly furnished. It has a large airy and comfortable living room, galley kitchen and two double bedrooms, one with an ensuite wetroom and the other with a rather spectacular bathroom. There is a separate area for the washing machine and good drying area especially useful for wet sailing kit. The apartment is on the ground floor and easy access, pet and child friendly. This is the perfect place for a holiday for all ages.

Until my recent marriage the apartment was my own home. I now live elsewheer in the bay with my husband. Between us we have 7 childrena nd 4 grandchildren and I can tell you from experience that Torquay is a great place to enjoy lefe whatever your age and interests. I am a solicitor by profession but now approaching retirement and have no intention of moving away from Torqay, although I have lived in Africa and the Far East and have travelled widely in Europe and the wider world.
Gillian purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Gillian chose Torquay City Centre
This flat is in the most fantastic position for a holiday. it is right where you would want to be in Torquay. Step out of the front door and you are practically on the Marina and within an easy stroll of local beaches and boat trips. Pretty much everything is within an easy walk. It is very accessible and close to all the main attractions. If you want a meal out there are marvellous local restaurants and you don't have to worry about that extra glass of wine.
What makes this Apartment unique
Location, location, location. The flat is also within a pretty listed Georgian Terrace and has a most elagant spacious living room. Although so close to the acton, the flat has an air of tranquility inside.

Great Location and sitting room!
The property was perfectly located right by the harbour. Very easy to walk to shops/restaurants/beach/crazy golf etc.
The house was very clean and the sitting room (front room) was lovely. Large Tele and comfy sofa. Bedrooms each had their own bathroom which was great and both had double beds (which were very comfy)
The kitchen ceiling was quite low and my son who is over 6ft had to duck to walk through - but it wasn't too much of an issue.
A little gem in a great liocation, plenty of space for 4 adults
We loved our week away although there is no parking buying a permit was easy but advise you to leave a copy of email in the window of the car rather than relying on ANPR as the car park attendants are over zealous. The wine bar wine at 07 is worth a visit - watch the sun set over the marina and the fish selection at the fish restaurant is upen.
Nice place good location had a good time
The appartment was beautiful and Gillian the ownwe made us very welcome.
The appartment is stunning and has everything you would need. It's location is perfect overlooking the Marina and so.close to all amenities. Gillian the owner was so attentive and gave us local tips of places to go. Such a great owner we couldn't recommend Gillian and her appartment enough. The dogs had an amazing time in Torquay it has to be the most dog friendly place in Britian. Only thing I would recommend is to book a weekly parking ticket as the car park.is opppsite the appartment and you can use it in other car parks in Torqay.
Really beautiful apartment and perfect location. Well equipped. Strong recommendation.
Thank you for you lovely review. It was a pleasure having you to stay and hope that someday you may come back.
Have a safe trip home.
This flat is perfectly located to access the the town and harbour . It was very comfortable clean and well equipped . We were attending a sailing event and it was in and excellent location to access the yacht club and dinghy park .
There are almost too many local attractions to mention. The marina and beaches are very close. There is a good local museum, 3 local theatres, cinema and fantastic restaurants nearby, as well as bars and a nightclub. There are a number of historical sites, castles and national trust houses and gardens. There are Napoleonic war sites at Brixham and World War II sites to visit in Torquay and Slapton. Devon has a fabulous coastline, and the flat is right on the coastal footpath as well as countryside and the Dartmoor is well worth a visit , as are the pretty towns and villages of the South Hams. There are boat trips to Brixham and to Dartmouth and trips bu bus, steam train and boat to Agatha Christies House and up river to unissable Totnes
