Description from owner

Description

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 Conference 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

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 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). Caretakers Jemima and Dan live on site in a discreet basement flat. Most guests dont 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.

It is not essential to have a car as Waitrose etc will do home delivery and shops are in walking or short taxi ride away.

Location description from owner

The English Riviera 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.

Torquay

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.

“This house and location is simply amazing.”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2015

We as a large family, with 5 children and 10 adults consisting of the grandparents, brothers and sisters and their partners and the kids, had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful property based in an amazing location in Newquay. The large house enabled all family members to enjoy their privacy whilst having quality family time together too. The garden too was beautiful and we were able to enjoy lovely barbecues on the sunny late evenings. To add to the experience, the Tudors is placed on a quiet street, but within a few minutes walk away from the busy town centre with its plentiful restaurants, family friendly bars and sea side. We had an amazing time and would definitely come back to this property again and my entire family was blown away by my choice of the Tudors and the location. I highly recommend this beautiful property to all families and the location too is simply wonderful. You can enjoy quality family time whilst also having the benefit of the night life, whilst the grand parents baby-sit :) And of course not forgetting the most kind, caring and considerate care taker Steve who is always on hand if you need any advice or help and who is an expert in fishing, we had the pleasure of enjoy his fresh caught fish too :)

“base camp”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2015

Excellent base for our summer holidays.We ordered the shopping online knowing that if there was any problems on our journey Steve the caretaker would be there to take delivery.We found the communications from Glyn to be excellent and Steve the caretaker is an absolute diamond .The house was spacious yet homely perfect for our large party and the kids loved playing hide and seek.The house was ideally situated for the harbour ,the beach and the shops.We would highly recommend the Tudors for anyone wanting a house with character.

“Excellent house in a fantastic location”

Reviewed 31 May 2015

My family and I stayed at the Tudors for a family birthday. The house was fantastic. It was spacious, light and generally had a good feel. It was well equipped with lots of reception spaces to accommodate a large group of people staying. The back garden / terrace was also fantastic. The house was a short walk from all amenities but despite its central location you still could enjoy peace and quiet in the house - it had that type of feel. I would recommend this house to anyone thinking of booking. I honestly think that the location and layout of the house would suit any need. We will definitely be staying again in the future.

“Fabulous”

Reviewed 11 May 2015

We arrived early , giving ourselves extra time to scout round the location, town and harbour before the rest of the family arrived.There was plenty of parking for at least 3 cars. We received a friendly welcome from Steve the on site caretaker. Don't be put off, we barely saw him until we said goodbye on our departure. Tea makings waiting for us for a reviving cuppa. The location was perfect for the whole of the English Riviera. The town, harbour, beach and town are all easy walking distance so no need for the car much of the time. The house was very clean and rambling. The children in particular loved it. Our eldest grandson. he's a fourer, literally cried when he left, he didn't want to leave his holiday home. Hopefully will come again next year. Thank you Glyn (the owner)

“Brilliant house”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2014

An absolutely wonderful house, very well equipped. It met all our needs.we all had a great time. I Rented it for a family celebration (60th birthday) with 4 generations. We spent some lovely evenings eating and drinking in the fabulous dinning room, and sitting out on the decking. Excellent location, just a short walk down hill to the marina. A beautiful spacious house. Just loved it.

“Perfect place to share with family and friends”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2014

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”

Reviewed 27 May 2013

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”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2013

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.

“Great Location & well equiped”

Reviewed 9 Dec 2012

The Tudors is a traditional home with plenty of space and everything you could want for your holiday. There is loads of space, plenty of seating, equipment, bedding & towels are provided. Everything was very clean and tidy and both the owner & caretaker were helpful and communication was easy and clear.
