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.

Our stay at Swanston Lodge was fabulous, the views from the lounge over Torbay are spectacular. We were very fortunate with the weather (sunshine every day), Swanston Lodge is a great location for walkers or just getting out and about to explore the surrounding area. Swanston Lodge is well equipped and the owners have paid attention to detail, loveRead morely and clean with off street parking. Hide

The property was of a very high standard, and extremely comfortable. The owners were really nice and nothing was too much trouble, they made us feel very welcome and at ease. So much to see and do especially walking for the dog, so overall really fantastic place, really enjoyed.

Property is lovely, clean and has all you would need for your stay. We found that it took around 15mins to walk with the dog down to the sea front although on the way back a little longer as its quite a hill.

Very well appointed accommodation, good WIFI . Stunning views over Torbay from the lounge and the terrace. Only downside difficult to find as entrance to apartment is not on the main road which was also very noisy. We still had a very enjoyable stay and would use again if in the area.

Stayed at Swanston Lodge in Sept. Initially struggled to find it - actually on Preston Down Road (one way) - best to reverse into drive. Clean and well kept with plenty of space for 2 adults. Cooked several times - kitchen very well equipped. Good WiFi, a Smart TV and a lovely sunny balcony with great sea views. Comfortable bed, but we found it quiRead morete noisy at night as it's just off a main road. Unfortunately, while we enjoyed our time here, we would not stay again due to the road noise. Hide

Stunning property with breathtaking views. Such a warm and friendly welcome! We were using the property as a base for a walking holiday and it couldn't have been better. There are so many tracks, paths and trails and such good transport links, we didn't have to get in our car all holiday.

We loved our stay. The view from the terrace and the front room is absolutely amazing. The apartment is beautifully done and has everything you need. The hosts are wonderful people who let you get on with it but are there if you need them. Beaches in area are glorious. Highly recommend.

First guests so everything brand new. Well appointed, very comfortable. Brilliant views of Torbay from patio area and lounge. For peace and quiet recommend Hollicombe park and beach, down the hill and to the left of Preston sands.
