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. 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.

We had a wonderful 5 day stay at this property! Lovely quiet location, perfectly situated to explore both the east and south coastline without too long of a drive. Studio flat was clean and well equipped, exactly as described.

Very chic and comfortable accommodation, well equipped. Really appreciated the welcoming gestures, fresh flowers, bottle of prosecco and especially the bottle of milk for a cuppa after a long journey.

We had a lovely week away with our 2 dogs. The owners were lovely but kept their distance. The Pad is very well equipped and comfortable. We did have to drive to kerswell Downs to walk our dogs as found the roads quite challenging as no footpaths.

This is well suited for a couple who want to get away for a weekend or week . There are two great eating out experiences Local the Pad The Bickley Hotel & Restaurant only 1 mile away or the Barn Owl approx 1.5 miles away . Travel into Torquay is just 10 min away . Recommend a visit to a hidden Gem At Cockerton just outside Torquay heading for PaignRead moreton. Old Manor House & Grounds old village & Crafts . Also great to visit other seaside resorts. Hide

The main room itself is comfortable but the outside space, although good for dogs, is very bleak with no lights or plants and does not contain the furniture pictured. The hosts were excellent and incredibly welcoming. The bathroom is so small it is impractical and its impossible to even wash your face. We enjoyed our time here and its a convenient Read morelocation but there is a lot of choice out there and I doubt if we'd book again. Hide
