In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


Set in one of the most enviable locations in Torquay, this apartment is the perfect retreat for two looking for a relaxing hideaway.

The Lookout (ref 30587) and The Garden Flat (ref 29650) are both tastefully decorated apartments situated peacefully off the beaten track in an acre of hilltop gardens with open views across the valley to the sea. They are attached to the owner’s home but offer privacy and great views. A large shared decking area overlooks Ilsham Valley, and each property has its own garden furniture, ideal for cream teas, enjoying a glass of wine or just relaxing and taking in the view.
The Garden Flat enjoys a private, covered patio area close to a large pond, and there is plenty of outside space to enjoy, along with a large area of the garden is enclosed which allows pets to roam freely.

Tucked away on the boundary of Lincombe Woods, you are within walking distance of Wellswood village shops, wooded walks, meadows and beaches. Meadfoot Beach is closest and arguably Torbay’s finest. With its southerly outlook, clean blue waters and views, it deserves its reputation as one of the region’s best.
Wellswood village is a 10-minute wooded walk away, and is one of the most charming areas of Torquay. Everything you need for day to day living is here including a pub, supermarket, ATM, restaurants, cafés, pharmacy, post office, patisserie, salons, barber, wine bar and village pantry amongst others.
The local dog-friendly pub is known for its excellent food, sunny beer garden and friendly atmosphere. The village is also the birthplace of crime writer Agatha Christie and was home of the Gleneagles Hotel, which inspired John Cleese’s ’Fawlty Towers’. Also offering a cosy, warm winter let, many guests return to enjoy an off season ‘English Riviera’ winter break. The apartments are a 5-minute drive to the marina, harbour and main Torquay shopping areas. Beach ¾ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

Living/dining room: With 42" Smart TV with Netflix and double sofa bed.

    Really lovely apartment, comfortably furnished and cosy. Fabulous views as the location overlooks Torquay and you can see for miles, some fabulous walks and loads to do in the area. I will definitely stay again, just one small gripe - I took some dvd’s and there wasn’t a DVD player - great, large smart tv but I would have liked to binge watch some films - however, this flat is still a 10 out of 10

    Lovely quiet location, amazing view from the lounge window! Excellent for taking on coastal walks in either direction if you don't mind the hills, easy access to other places of interest by car. The flat itself is lovely, comfortable and has all you need - home from home. Would recommend it to friends and looking forward to another visit.

    Excellent flat, has everything you needed for a great holiday. Jim, the owner, was fantastic and gave advise on walks, pubs etc. He has even compiled a " ledger" with all the local walks and an easy route to the pub !! Archie our dog loved sitting looking out the window at the stunning views. The decked patio was a great place to sit and half quiet drink and soak up the sea views. The apartment was well laid out and a comfy bed, great " smart" telly and easy control for the central heating, unfortunately we had to use a few nights ! The welcome pack left by Jim is a great touch and greatly enjoyed. We will certainly be returning

    Thanks, we had a great week at the apartment. Very friendly owners who made us feel very welcome and relaxed. Lovely welcome gift appreciated by us and our dog! Was great to be able to let our dog wander free and explore. He loved the garden... especially the pond 😕 will definitely return one day.

    My dog and I were warmly welcomed and had a fantastic time. The flat had everything we needed, was spacious and comfortable and I loved the cosy chair in the window with sea views. The WiFi wasn't 100% but worked fine most of the time. Far better than expected when informed the signal wasn't always reliable. The thoughtfulness of James and his partner was very much appreciated, from the welcome tray if goodies to the folder of printed out local walks, which made are stay all the better.
