Description

Situated in a fantastic location with stunning valley and sea views, this delightful apartment is the perfect holiday home.

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.

12 steps to entrance. All on the ground floor.
Living/dining room: With electric fire, 47" Smart TV with Netflix, wooden floor and French doors leading to decked area.
Kitchen: With gas cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and wooden floor.
Bedroom: With double bed.
Shower room: With double shower cubicle and toilet.

Both properties: Gas central heating, gas, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Welcome pack. Decked sitting-out area (shared). Garden furniture. 1-acre grounds (shared with other property on-site). Bike store. Private parking for 1 car. No smoking.

Welcome pack was a lovely touch and Rebecca gave us a lovely warm welcome and was very thorough in giving us information on the apartment the local area and history or Torbay.

    Good points) The lookout had stunning views and was nice and spacious and well equipped and clean . (Bad points) the decking was very unsafe rotten hand rail missing deck boards and with wall tiles over missing boards, slabs were very very uneven , and if your not fit and good on you feet it's a no no and you will need your car all the time. We booked two weeks but had to leave after a week because our new neighbours had two large dogs which kept running at us and growling was vary intimidating so it cost us to book a b&b for the next week and was never offered any refund so not be back witch is a shame because it's a lovely place .

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your review. Although I am surprised at some of your comments compared to the text conversations we had after your departure in which you advised you were leaving early due to personal reasons. The maintenance of the decking is a continuous job akin to The Forth Bridge. Although its not a job I relish, it is indeed vital. It was unfortunate for yourselves that I was in the process of replacing some boards near the apartment during your stay, however, the area was roped off and is now repaired and treated. On arrival I always ask our guests to let me know if there's anything they're unhappy with as I'll do my utmost to put it right. Had you mentioned during your stay the behaviour of the new neighbours dogs, I would have spoken with them about it. Only afterwards, through our texts did I discover there had been a problem. I did indeed have a conversation with the other guests who were terribly apologetic and kept their dogs on their leads from then on. I can't help but feel this was a situation which couldve been easily avoided. Thank you for leaving the apartment so tidy and for your positive comments too.

    Brilliant location with fantastic views, apartment very well equipped, would benefit from a new mattress & sofa

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for the review. I wish you had mentioned the mattress when you were here. On reading your review, I put a brand new mattress in that very morning. I always want all my guests to be as comfy and happy as possible. Thanks again.

    Excellent for 2 people with stunning views. A minor quibble was the early morning and late evening footsteps from upstairs.

    The most fantastic cottage we've ever stayed in. The hosts were great and the view was even better. Loads to do close to the cottage and remember to take proper walking shoes as the roads are proper steep. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who asks.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Wow. Thank you so much for such glowing feedback. We really enjoyed having you stay too. Happy days.

    Overall the apartment was ok, cosy with a great view but you needed a satnav to find your way too and from the property. The owner was very friendly and showed us around when we arrived, advised us to beware of the dog but it still tried to bite me, it tended to lay across the gateway. Property a bit dated.
