Our pleasant and comfortable room is in our family home in a brand new house. We are located in a quiet area of Torquay within one of the outer suburbs. We are about 3 miles from Torquay town centre and the main tourist beach. Both are accessible via a short bus journey from a nearby bus stop.
A retail park is a 10-15 minute walk away with high street name shops and a large supermarket.
Our home is split over three levels with the guest bedroom on the lower ground floor, Lounge in the middle and bathroom and family bedrooms on the upper floor. There is a shared family bathroom with bath and shower for guests as well as access to a separate cloakroom toilet on the ground floor. There's unrestricted access to the open garden and kitchen and guests are more than welcome to use cutlery & microwave etc for takeaways. There is also a comfortable lounge to relax in where guests are welcome to use the TV and borrow the good selection of books (especially ideal for an afternoon down at the beach) and local OS maps.
The bedroom has its own tea & coffee making facilities and plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space.
Cereals, toast, fruit and hot drinks will be provided at breakfast time which is included in the room fee.
We are happy to assist with a small amount of washing for longer stays (we know first hand what its like when travelling) and our iron and ironing board is also available when required.
Use of an off road private parking space on the drive is available to guests and our home is easily accessed to the major 'A' roads, which is ideal for exploring beautiful South Devon. Dartmoor, Exeter, Dartmouth and Plymouth are all within a short distance for day trips.
Nicholas and his family were extremely welcoming, friendly, helpful and are the perfect hosts. The house is spacious and pristine. The room is perfect, sited next to the lovely kitchen which opens out onto a garden with a view and plenty of sunshine. The bedroom, being sited two floors down from the family bedrooms makes it feel as if you are not imposing on the family when a guest in their house. I would recommend to anybody, whether staying in Torquay for business or pleasure.
