This stunning coastal loft apartment nestles in the grounds of the owner’s impressive home, and boasts cosy and comfortable accommodation together with fabulous sea views.

On a hill above Preston, this bright loft apartment nestles beside the owner’s luxury coastal home yet your privacy and seclusion are assured. Paignton is one of the jewels in the English Riviera’s crown and loved for its friendly atmosphere, long stretch of sandy beach, lively pier and colourful beach huts. At the southern end of the town is the 18th-century Paignton Harbour, offering day trips along the rugged Devon coastline, as well as wildlife and fishing; alternatively, take a trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway which runs from Paignton Train Station. Other attractions easily accessible from here include Paignton Zoo Environmental Park, Agatha Christie's Greenway House, Dartmoor National Park and the stunning cathedral city of Exeter.

Venture up the small flight of steps from the parking area and head inside this delightful coastal property, with sloped and some low head height ceilings, where you will firstly find yourself in a generously proportioned entrance hall which provides a handy place to store coats and boots. From here venture further inside and into the gorgeous open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. This cosy yet beautifully light space boasts a comfortable sofa sat beside a Smart TV, stunning sea views and French doors which open onto a Juliet balcony. Here you can relax in style and soak up the fabulous scenery at any time of year. Also compact yet perfectly appointed is the kitchen area which boasts a great range of equipment including an electric oven and hob, microwave and also a fridge/freezer. Located on the other side of the property you will then discover the beautiful bedroom which has been lovingly decorated in a fresh and contemporary style. This offers a double bed, Smart TV and an en-suite shower and WC.

Heading outside, further highlights await in the shape of a fabulous glass-fronted patio area with garden furniture and far-reaching sea views. This provides the perfect venue for al fresco dining during warm weather or just somewhere to soak up the sun without having to venture far from the front door. Private off-road parking for one car is also provided.

The view is superb and The Lodge was spotless with everything thing we needed and more (flowers were a lovely touch). Milk on arrival, along with tea bags and coffee, meant we could have a much needed cuppa. Access is a little difficult as the property is at the top of a one way street. From Upper Headland Park Road, we found it easier to turn intoRead more Upper Penns Road and going up the hill to access the drive. You will need to reverse in as its a little tight but easy once you know how. Hide

Lovely holiday cant wait to come back. Only negative was no bus stop near by its a 15 minute walk down a hill. Obviously a lot harder coming back up if you have any difficulty walking. That said its worth it as the property is perfect and has Amazing views. Full credit to the owners they are friendly without being intrusive.
