It enjoys open views over Torquay and is a short walk to Torquay harbour and the award winning Meadfoot Beach. We have refurbished Rowell House to a high standard showing off it's fine period features while incorporating everything that is required for modern day living. Rowell House provides high quality bedding and towels, wifi, Virgin media tv, board games and much more all included in your stay.

We have a Tripp trapp high chair, travel cot, toddler loo seat and steps so we are very child friendly (as well as having two boys aged 11 and 13 of our own).

We hope you choose to stay at Rowell house as we have tried to make it extremely comfortable and home from home. Take a look at our face book page for more photos

Further details

We suggest you contact us to discuss this before booking. It is a walk up a steep hill from the harbour and therefore not suitable for those looking for a level location.

“Nice central quiet place, ideal to stay at Torquay”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2015

Only 5 minutes walk to the harbour, but still very quiet. We liked it a lot. It was very well outfitted and in good condition. We especially liked the barbecue, the good kitchen and the huge dinner table.

“A very pleasurable period property with bags of character.”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2014

We spent a very pleasant week at Rowell House. The house is comfortably appointed and has an idiosyncatic charm. Its location is ideal for exploring the seafront at Torquay, as this is just a short walk from the house. Everything in the area is built on something of an incline, so prepare your legs for this, if they're not used to it. Apart from a few blown light bulbs in the chandeliers, we could find no fault with the property and had an excellent stay.

“Fantastic house in great location”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2014

This house is beautifully presented and clean with all of the amenities you could ever need plus some extras such as beach toys for the kids. There was ample space for 3 adults and 2 small children not to feel in each others' way. The off street parking space on the drive is a bonus in Torquay although parking permits are also provided. The location is great just a short walk down the hill to the harbour but its far enough away for a quiet nights sleep. We had a fantastic week.

“Very nice house in excellent location in the heart of Torquay”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2012

This was a very well kept house with plenty space in both the bedrooms and the living areas downstairs. I will definitely want to rebook should we decide to stay in Torquay again next year. Had everything we needed for a self-catering holiday. I don't think you could beat its' location as it is on a very quiet street in the heart of Torquay, only 5 minute walk from the main shopping area and the harbour. Many great places to see nearby. the only downside was that we weren't staying long enough to see them all.

“A classic example of the English Riviera.”

Reviewed 26 May 2012

This is a really beautiful house, a great mix of modern good quality design and classical fixtures fittings. It is at the top of a steep drive and took some doing to park on its narrow drive way but once done we were able to leave the car and walk quickly down into the Harbour area for food etc as it is very conveniently sited as well as being tucked quietly away from the hustle and bustle. It was a real treat to stay in such surroundings, very elegant and posh!!!

“Good location to stay to explore the area”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2012

We stayed at Rowell House for a week to walk a section of the South West Coast path. It was an ideal location for this with excellent transport links. The house is well equipped and very clean. There is a small terrace at the front of the house which is not overlooked, and it is very quiet, even though it is close to the centre of town. It's a great location from which to explore the surrounding area which is lovely. We had a great week. .

“Great home from home”

Reviewed 29 Mar 2012

Beautiful home, large enough for entertaining additional family. We had a great stay at Rowell House, very central location, but in a lovely quiet area. Will book again.
