"A charming beautifully appointed cottage in a lovely location."

Kent's cottage is a real gem. It is cosy but light & spacious and equally good for a single traveller, as a romantic couple's retreat or for a family with children. The large courtyard garde… More

"gute Lage und Anbindung an Torquay Innenstadt, sehr gastfreundlich und nette kleine Einkaufsmeile"

Das Cottage hat eine sehr gute Lage und liegt sehr ruhig. Hervorzuheben ist die Gastfreundschaft der Eigentümerin und die schöne Küche, gute Heizung und Heisswasserversorgung. Die Küche die gut … More

The cottage sustained some damage in the storms, a roof slate was blown off and subsequently a damp patch appeared in the bedroom. The roof has now been fixed and as I write this (Nov 2013) the wall is being re plastered, and will be decorated by the end of this week, ready for December arrivals. We have a new heating system, new double glazed windows and new mattresses throughout, so the cottage is cosier than ever. We always try to rectify issues as soon as we know about them, in the case of the roof it wasn't practical to re plaster and decorate during the guest's stay, but all issues have now been resolved.

"Great base to explore Devon coast"

Fantastic location in the heart of Torquay, this little cottage was well maintained and equipped with everything we could have wanted. It was clean and when we arrived there was even a bottle of wine waiting for us.

"Pleasant stay in quiet area of Torquay"

Good location and easy walking to shops. Car parking wasn't a problem at the property. Good secure garden and badminton set much used! Great pub - Kents, within walking distance and Kents Cavern Cave attraction only 2 minute walk. Lots of walking along south west coastal path.

"This was a delightful clean accommodation, with great shops close by, and easy access to town centre."

We had simply a great stay at Kent cottage, and would highly recommend. It has a charming welcoming feeling about it. Within a two min walk you are amongst a parade of quite excellent little shops, including a fantastic bakers, and a family run Italian resturant. I will certainly want to stay again on my next visit to Torquay.
