We stayed in the property at the beginning of March as a family with two children under 4. On the lead up to our holiday, Lorraine was very helpful, sharing travel information, due to the bad weather and offering us the option to change our dates if needed. She was also quick to respond to both emails and text messages.
The property is in a good location, just minutes drive from the sea front and walkable distance on a nice day. It is impressive in size for a holiday let and is well decorated throughout. Unfortunately we found the kitchen area to be quite dirty, with unwashed and stained cups in the cupboard, a dirty microwave and oven and unused food left in the fridge which was creating quite a smell throughout the living space. This put us off using the kitchen area at all, which is quite an inconvenience with two young children. We also found that the duvet on the top bunk was covered in hair.
Throughout the property are photos of the owners? family and lots of padlocked cupboards and wardrobes, which we found made us feel quite uncomfortable, as if we were invading someone else’s space, rather than renting our own.
Overall the property is great for accessing South Devon and the sea front in Torquay and we used it as a base for exploring. However we found a few issues that could be amended and with a few tweaks it would be good for families visiting Torquay.
Very beautiful house which was nicely located near the train station and seaside. Would recommend to others!
