The flat is beautifully presented and has everything you need. There are no improvements the owners could make. We had a lovely stay. The only issue we had was road noise.

An ideal spot for visiting the area. The apartment was clean, warm and really quiet. There was a thunderstorm whilst we were there and we didn't hear a sound!

Lovely clean apartment with everything we needed, entrance is hard to negotiate so best to reverse in! There are two all year round dog friendly beaches in the area, not really in walking distance tho, Fairy cove down by the harbour and Goodrington sands which is lovely with a small boating lake, water park, cafe , play park, picnic area and a beefRead moreeater. Swanston retreat is a good base to visit this lovely part of Devon. Hide

Lovely place to stay with lots to see and do in the area regardless of your age. Saw James the owner a couple of times and was very helpful. Would visit again but next time in the lodge with its great views and outside seating area. That said the Retreat was a lovely large apartment that was ideal for our weeks holiday.

It was a lovely place to stay, with tea & coffee facilities on arrival. Well equipped kitchen and large bedroom with ensuite. Great location within walking distance to the shops and beach front in Paignton, just the steep hill climb on the way back which you need to walk off the pasties & chips..!! Lovely area, would definitely stay here again.
