Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Brimming with character and cosiness, this homely abode sits just ten minutes outside the seaside town of Torquay. It has all the qualities of a quintessential cottage – wooden ceiling beams, exposed brick walls and a manicured garden to top it all off. The characterful home is ideal for a small group of friends or family seeking a rural retreat in South Devon. You can spend mealtimes in the garden, eating barbecued grub at the dining table and feeling the sun on your skin. Come evening, gather in the snug living room and stick a Netflix film on the TV. Drive into Torquay to enjoy dinner out, followed by a stroll along the waterfront. If you fancy a day on the sand, the scenic Meadfoot Beach is just a twelve-minute drive away.

About Torquay

Torquay has a long creative history, with Agatha Christie born in the town and Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s former home visible on Vaughan Parade. The once-frequented Pavilion Theatre still stands, and while it no longer houses shows, its manicured gardens feature the town’s recognisable Big Wheel and the Princess Theatre, where West End plays are performed each year.
