perfect location only a short walk into town, the property itself is very large with everything you will need supplied. Dawn and Stephen helped us with an issue we had on arrival within 5 minutes - we will hopefully return in the future.

About the neighbourhood
Torquay is a fantastic seaside town with it's Victorian grandeur combined with the modern marina. It is famous for Fawlty Towers and a lively nightlife. But it has breathtaking views, fantastic beaches and many small areas each having it's own unique character away from the hustle and bustle of the centre. One of these is Meadfoot which we believe has the best of everything. Walk down to Torquay harbour or the other way to Meadfoot beach. Near to great restaurants, but in a quiet tree lined street with open views across Torquay. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.
