Comfortable Holiday Rental, near Torquay (RUTLODBC)

The Property is an early Victorian holiday home and is well positioned for easy access to the harbour, seafront, and the amenities of Wellswood Village.

Just a ten minutes walk away from the town centre and is conveniently located on the Babbacombe Road, directly up from the harbour-side and Marina, with off road parking and is the perfect choice for guests that enjoy the style of boutique hotels, but prefer the privacy and convenience that self-catering offers.

This beautiful period building has been extensively and lovingly restored and successfully marries the features and character of yester-year, with all the essential conveniences of today. It is within the Warberries conservation area with the ambience of the French Riviera.

The property's five elegant bedrooms benefit from en suite bathrooms and luxury fixtures and fittings; and there is a lovely lounge with high ceiling, open fire place and plenty of comfortable seating for all.

Torquay is located in the heart of the English Riviera famed for its mild climate and clear waters with a mild south-facing aspect and miles of sandy beaches. The harbour, with its large marina, palm trees and subtropical gardens, elegant Georgian terraces, plus a myriad of bars and restaurants remains the most attractive area.

Torquay is well served with rail links to the major cities, the newly opened South Devon Link Road giving speedy access to the M5 motorway and airport at the Cathedral City of Exeter.

Review ~ July 2016
"We arrived early at The Property and were able to collect the keys immediately leaving our mobile number so that we could be informed as soon as the property was ready. The house is beautiful with 5 fantastic en suite rooms, a definite bonus with a large group!! We were near enough to walk into town although it's a bit steep walking back up. There are shops nearby to buy essentials and a bus stop either side with frequent buses. We would be happy to stay again. Susan"

Check in / Check out

Standard check-in is 4pm and standard check-out is normally 10am on your day of departure. In some cases these times vary. Always check your booking confirmation paperwork for correct timings.


From Tavistock and the rivers Tavy and Tamar to the English Riviera of Torbay, and the nautical town of Dartmouth north across Dartmoor (with its famous miniature ponies) to the surfing beaches of Croyde and Woolacombe, there can be few counties in England that offer such a broad spectrum of experiences to the visitor. 

Located in the South Westerly reaches of England, Devon shares a southerly border with Cornwall, and an easterly border with Somerset and Dorset. To the north and south the Bristol and English channels provide miles of beautiful coastline, and numerous attractions to the county. 

Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty (5), National Parks (2) and many other parks and reserves make it very easy to get off the beaten track, but the cities of Plymouth and Exeter are as modern and vibrant as they come.

Inland are a number of country landscapes to explore; Tarka Country to the north, taking its name from a famous novel, offering the Tarka Trail; a fantastic cycle route through the beautiful country landscapes. Centrally, Dartmoor National Park is the largest open space in South England, and offers miles of rugged and wild moorland for keen walkers to explore.

Dartmoor Zoological Park is situated on the edge of the moor. The zoo is the inspiration behind a Hollywood film, and home to an impressive range of exotic animals. Along the south coast is the spectacular Jurrasic Coast World Heritage Site, reaching from Exmouth along into Dorset, and offering a spectacular coastline to discover.

Further south along the coast is the borough of Torbay, home to some of Devon’s most popular seaside resorts and tourist spots, and known as the English Riviera. Devon’s county town is the attractive city of Exeter, offering a mix of historical and modern architecture and culture. To the south is the University City of Plymouth, a historic port, and home to The Hoe, a popular public open space offering a range of attractions.   

Devon is the third biggest county in the UK by area, but it's quite easy to get around. In population, it is only the twelfth largest, so it's really not very crowded! Geographically and in spirit quite unlike the neighbouring counties, Devon is characterised by the granite structure that forms Dartmoor rising out of its distinctive red soil, and the very different Devonian rock structure underlying Exmoor. The Devonian geological period was actually named after Devon since it was here that these rocks were first studied. 

South West

England’s peninsula incorporates the counties of Cornwall and Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Bristol. This region is mostly rural so is perfect to escape the everyday hustle and bustle, whether relaxing with the family by the seaside or exploring the wild moors and rugged coastline. The area boasts hundreds of beautiful sandy bays to choose from and fantastic surfing opportunities. The historic cities of Exeter, Bath and Gloucester are definitely worth a visit, and with transport links all the way down to Penzance even the famous Lands End and remote Isles of Scilly can be reached.
