Romantic five-star studio apartment situated in a quiet location on the owner’s smallholding, yet just three miles from the chic resort town of Torquay on the beautiful English Riviera

This stunning apartment enjoys a quiet location on the owner’s smallholding and is one of three high-quality properties on site. The proximity to the resort towns of the English Riviera make this an ideal location for those who enjoy whiling away their days at the beach, sunbathing and swimming in the azure seas of Torbay. The town of Torquay is just three miles south of the property, often seen as the most upmarket town of the Riviera, it offers an excellent range of shops, a choice of well-regarded eateries and of course some pretty beaches, which continue round the whole of the bay. Should visitors fancy a break from the beach, other places of interest in the area include Paignton Zoo and Dartmoor National Park.

This contemporary ground-floor studio apartment offers open-plan and split level accommodation. The open-plan living space is light and airy with a raised sleeping area which features a double bed, next to which patio doors open onto the enclosed patio. Two steps lead from the sleeping platform down to the lounge area, where there is a large surround sound TV with DVD player, and iPod dock for guests to enjoy from the inviting sofa. A breakfast bar provides a place to enjoy romantic meals and separates the lounge area from the sleek and stylish kitchen, which is well-equipped with an electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, wine fridge, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The shower room is a compact yet well-equipped with a fantastic monsoon shower and WC. 

Outside, there is an enclosed gravelled patio with garden furniture and a BBQ, which offers guests a private space to relax. Guests are also welcome to interact with the animals on site which include horses, goats, chickens, chicks (depending on the time of year), geese, rabbits and cats. There is ample off-road parking available on site.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Pros: - the bed was very comfortable - spacious - great location, ten min drive from the town and local beaches - modern Negatives: - had to clean the cooker tray out before we could use it due to their being stale fat on it. - sofa sank in when we sat on it and therefore you could feel the wood underneath. - there was quite a bit of grime in betweRead moreen the shower doors and on the seals in the shower. Some basics we had to go and get, sponges to wash up with, extra bin liners etc Hide

Very nicely decorated and clean accommodation with plenty of good quality facilities. A bit remote, which is fine if you want to get away from it all. Suggest a car to get to nearest shop & pub as road outside can be dangerous when walking. Handy for Torbay, coast and Dartmoor. Friendly owners who live onsite.

The Pad was very modern with good quality fittings, had everything you could need. There was plenty of crockery, cutlery and pans, all lovely and clean, none chipped as you sometimes fined. Little extras, such as foil, bin liners, dishwasher tablets, kitchen roll and toilets rolls though we had taken our own.
