This cottage has been on My Favourite Holiday Cottages since 31/10/2016.
Although the décor is dated, its very in-keeping with the property, its quaint and homely and more importantly very clean. My daughters loved the giant pink bath in their own bathroom.
The sea is just in view from the upstairs bedroom and a gentle stroll away, just down the hill is Torquay train station. Cockington Village is also just a little stroll down the hill and so pretty.
We left the car most days and explored by foot. Amenities are not too far away, our 4 year old could manage the walk.
In summary we hope to return soon.
