The house is a stone's throw from the beach and pier, which we visited a number of times during our stay. The house was perfect for us in accommodating a family of multiple generations to stay and celebrate Christmas. The owner was very helpful and quick to respond both prior and during the stay. Just a shame we didn't have time/weather to use the pizza oven.
We visited Coleton Fishacre and Greenway (both National Trust properties) and went on a few lovely coastal walks. There is a cinema nearby too, although we used the movies channels instead on this occasion.
My family and I had a wonderful time staying at Sands Road. The accommodation catered us all well from my 18 month old son to my parents. We could all have our own space...(and bathroom) but the lounge and dinning room were great for all getting together for family meals, as was the garden.
The owners have done all they can to make the accommodation as safe as possible for little ones with stair gates etc.. my son was also very happy with the high chair and the toys!
Beds were comfy and although it is on the main road, we were not disturbed by any noise.
A couple of things to be aware of, there are no bins in any of the bedrooms or bathrooms, this got a bit annoying. Also the showers are lovely and powerful but you have to watch the shower tray as they fill up quickly and it would be easy to cause a flood.
I would certainly recommend Sands Road, it is a great location for exploring Paignton and beyond, only 40min or so from Dartmoor.
Thank you...we had a great time
When I booked this I had no idea how close to everything we would be, it's a 5 minute walk from the Harbor, the town center and the sea front. Paignton Zoo is a 5 minute drive away with a large Morrisons next to it.
The pictures are accurate and the house is well kitted out, the TV's in the dining room and living room are smart TV's and have full Virgin Media with Sky movies.
The 2 main bedrooms with en-suite are very similar in size, so no arguments if 2 couples/families go. The showers are amazing...definitely power showers.
There were complimentary goodies when we arrived, I was going to add a picture of them but I think the surprise is better.
If you are going to Paignton and want to be in a large, peaceful house near to all amenities and attractions then this place is ideal.
We went as a family of a 4 with the parents coming for a few nights but it would easily accommodate 2 families of 4.
We had a wonderful stay at this stunning and comfortable holiday home. It had all the essential appliances plus lots more besides. It is located just 2 minutes walk away from both the beach and other local amenities such as a crazy golf course, pier and amusements, restaurants, cinema, harbour and a Geo park. We only used the car twice the whole week we were there! When we arrive we were greeted with a welcome gift which added a lovely touch and we felt immediately at home. I would highly recommend this rental and will definitely return.
