The Tudors is a large, Grade II listed, Victorian villa in Torquay, Devon. Located in the quiet, residential Meadfoot area of Torquay, it is 200 metres from the harbour and yacht marina. Good sandy beaches are a 10 minute walk, shops, restaurants and pubs are just a 2 minute walk down the hill. Torquay is Devon’s most famous resort, built on hills beside its magnificent bay with palm trees along its seafront. Local amenities include a theatre, cinemas, leisure centre (indoor pool), public gardens, tennis courts, pitch and putt (plus proper golf course) and it’s own League 2 football team.

Set in its own grounds and spread over 3 floors, the Tudors accommodates 14 guests. Plenty of space for everybody to get together in the lounges, dining room and the garden terrace or to enjoy quiet time in the spacious bedrooms, some of which have TV’s and DVD players. The kitchen is very well equipped with a large cooker, two dishwashers and many gadgets and is well set up to cook for large groups. There is off road parking and a games room. The rear terraced garden has small, shallow (10cm) ponds and waterfalls and the enclosed side garden has a swing, small climbing frame and sandpit. The house is ideal for children and, with its two staircases, is fantastic for ‘hide and seek’

Further details indoors

Sleeping arrangements are very flexible as eight of the single beds (in four of the bedrooms) can be made up as twins or latched together and made up as king-size doubles.

There is a piano in the back lounge which guests are free to use - but not later than 10.00pm please!

There are two dishwashers, two fridge-freezers and one fridge making it easier to cater for large groups.

Further details outdoors

At the bottom of the drive, close to the public road and about 15 metres from the main house, is the Coach House, converted into a games room (table tennis, darts, bagatelle, table skittles).

Caretaker Steve lives on site in a discreet basement flat. Most guests don't realize they are there but in the event of problems are readily available to help and also can provide a lot of insight into local attractions. .

The West Country region

Devon is bordered by Somerset, Dorset and the Duchy County of Cornwall. It is England's third largest county with nearly 7,000 sq. kilometres of land. Devon has two natural parks, Exmoor and Dartmoor, coastal towns and seaside resorts along two coast lines, picturesque villages and a variety of ancient history.

There is a lot to see within the beautiful county of Devon. You can take walks on the moors or by the sea. Take cruises along the coast or take a steam train journey. There are many natural as well as man-made attractions including a zoo, model village, water parks and stately homes.


Apart from the lovely sandy beaches, Torquay offers the chance to take a cruise along the coast, a ferry to Brixham or a spot of mackerel fishing for your bbq supper. There is a theatre, cinemas, an indoor swimming pool, tennis coursts, pitch and put, a golf course and a football team. Agatha Christie was a native of Torquay and you can find out more about her at the local museum or on a vintage bus tour. Living Coasts is 10 minutes walk from the house and here you can see birds, penguins and fish and learn about their habitats and environments.

The Orange Tree is a good restaurant a short walk down the hill. A little further is Number Seven, an excellent seafood bistro overlooking the harbour and the historic WWII slipway of Beacon Cove.

"Perfect place to share with family and friends"

The house was perfect, we were a group of 15 women on a hen weekend and it was fantastic, we stayed in on Friday night with a Chinese as the house was so lovely then out to enjoy the busy night life of Torquay on the Saturday. I would highly recomend this place for a large group, great location just 5 minutes walk (if that) to the town and so much space, even with 15 women it didnt feel cramped.
Booking was easy and the caretaker that lives in the annex was so helpful, we had an Asda shop delivered before we arrived and he not only saw the delivery in he put it all nicely arranged for our arrival.
Great value for money.

"Fantastic location and a beautiful house"

Unfortunately we only stayed for two nights, I wish we had more time as the location of the accommodation and the actual house itself were amazing. The house has a very unique layout and a room for every occasion. There is a well-stocked games room and a secluded garden around the back with a covered area which all worked well come rain or shine. This is certainly top of my list of places to stay if I return to Torquay. To add to that the owners were super helpful and answered every question promptly and with plenty of additional information.

"Spacious House in an excellent Location"

We stayed at The Tudors during the last week of March and were impressed by the size of the house and its location, just round the corner from the town. We enjoyed the table tennis and darts in the games room although it was a bit cold. Would definitely book again if we return to Torquay for a get together.
