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

Exceptionally good!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed tn the Garden Rooms for a week and loved it so much we would have extended our time there if it had been possible.

The Garden Rooms is an annex to the main house, where the owners live, but it is completely self contained and has its own secluded patio area in beautiful garden. It is spacious, features all the comforts of home and is so well maintained that it felt like we were the first people to stay there.

As was said by another reviewer, the pictures do not do it justice, unlike many places I have stayed, it is bigger than they suggest and the views are stunningly good.

There is plenty to see and do nearby and there are good shops and restaurants within walking distance of the property.

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.
