The Garden Flat is situated peacefully off the beaten track in ¾ acre of hilltop gardens with open views across the valley to the sea. It is attached to the owner’s home yet offers privacy and great views. The front of the house and sitting area overlooks Ilsham Valley making it an ideal spot for cream teas, enjoying a glass of wine or just relaxing in. The property also has a private and covered veranda area overlooking a large pond. There is plenty of outside space to enjoy, along with an enclosed garden in which pets can roam freely.

Located on the boundary of Lincombe Woods, you are within walking distance of Wellswood village shops, woodlands, meadows and beaches. Meadfoot Beach is closest and arguably Torbay’s finest. With its southerly outlook and clean blue waters, it deserves its reputation as one of the region’s best. Wellswood village is a ten-minute woodland walk away (or two minute drive) and is a charming area of Torquay. Everything you need for day-to-day living is here including a pub, small 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 the birthplace of crime writer Agatha Christie, home to Kents Cavern Caves and was where The Gleneagles Hotel inspired John Cleese’s ’Fawlty Towers’. The apartment is a ten-minute drive to the marina, harbour and main Torquay shopping areas. The Garden Flat offers a cosy, warm winter let too, and many guests return to enjoy an off-season ‘English Riviera’ winter break. Beach ¾ mile. Shops, pub and restaurants ½ mile.

Had a lovely weekend in the garden flat. Lovely location with gorgeous view, we did find it a struggle getting down the narrow entryway between houses when a car parked on the main street nearly across from it. Lovely flat, little dated and the walkway to the bathroom is so narrow but otherwise a lovely place with everything you need. Did find at times the floor above was a little noisy especially over the bedroom, got woke up by I think the cat/dog (maybe child but sounded like 4 legs haha) running round at 7am but it was a minor thing!
