Property code: THPAD

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 attractive ground-floor studio apartment is placed in a peaceful location on the owner’s smallholding just 3 miles outside the vibrant seaside resort of Torquay. One of three quality properties on-site, this split-level luxury accommodation is perfect for a romantic retreat and also ideal for keen walkers as well as those who might enjoy whiling away their days at the beach, sunbathing and swimming in the blue seas of Torbay.

You will awake to bright mornings in this open-plan property in a lavish bed on a raised platform (up two steps), next to which patio doors open to an enclosed patio. After you plan your day over breakfast at the breakfast bar, you can take your coffee across to the comfortable sofa and unfurl in front of the TV, making the most of the surround sound experience. Or plug into the iPod dock and enjoy your own playlist in Hi-Fi. You can enjoy meals alfresco on the furnished, gravelled patio. If not preparing suppers in the well-equipped kitchen, you can add to your outdoor experience by cooking on the BBQ.

The town of Torquay (5 miles) offers an excellent range of shops, a choice of well-regarded restaurants, pubs, cinemas and of course, some picture-postcard beaches, which continue around the whole of Torbay. The Princess Theatre (5 miles) offers some major names in entertainment throughout the summer season, along with the Pantomime season. Should visitors fancy a break from the beach, other places of interest in the area include Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves (6 miles), Babbacombe Model Village (4 miles), Living Coasts (5 miles) and Paignton Zoo (8 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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

Pros: - the bed was very comfortable - spacious - great location, ten min drive from the town and local beaches - modern Negatives: - had to clean the cooker tray out before we could use it due to their being stale fat on it. - sofa sank in when we sat on it and therefore you could feel the wood underneath. - there was quite a bit of grime in betweRead moreen the shower doors and on the seals in the shower. Some basics we had to go and get, sponges to wash up with, extra bin liners etc Hide

Very nicely decorated and clean accommodation with plenty of good quality facilities. A bit remote, which is fine if you want to get away from it all. Suggest a car to get to nearest shop & pub as road outside can be dangerous when walking. Handy for Torbay, coast and Dartmoor. Friendly owners who live onsite.

The Pad was very modern with good quality fittings, had everything you could need. There was plenty of crockery, cutlery and pans, all lovely and clean, none chipped as you sometimes fined. Little extras, such as foil, bin liners, dishwasher tablets, kitchen roll and toilets rolls though we had taken our own.
