Being almost literally only a stone's throw from Meadfoot beach, a 15 minute walk or a two minute drive from the centre of Torquay and but a few steps away from the bars, restaurants and leisure facilities of the Osborne Hotel this is an ideal all year round location.

Immediately outside the gates to the Crescent is a bus stop from where a high frequency bus service takes passengers down to Torquay harbour and beyond (Service 64). This means that The English Riviera and other parts of Devon such as Totnes and Dartmouth are fully accessible even without a car.

This duplex style apartment combines wonderful period features such as high ceilings, and ornate cornicing with all the modern comforts of a luxury apartment.

The fully-equipped luxury kitchen offers the carefree freedom to wine and dine at guests' own leisure; with a gas hob oven, microwave, toaster, kettle and dishwasher provided. A stylish glass top dining table features under a pretty chandelier, and next to a charming gas fire, for a romantic setting in all seasons. A recommended restaurant list provided by the owner also gives guests the opportunity to dine out at one of Torquay's most beautiful restaurants.

Location description from owner

The English Riviera region

South Devon has a unique micro climate that has been bringing visitors to the area all year round for hundreds of years. The best known part of the South Devon Coast is the area collectively known as The English Riviera. This consists of the three towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. The towns are all centred on a beautifully sheltered bay called Tor Bay. This beautiful natural landscape together with the rich Victorian built heritage and the facilities of a modern resort mean that the modern English Riviera offers guests a very unique and special experience. Torquay has an abundance of fine places to eat. These include Michelin star restaurants as well as those of celebrity chefs like Mitch Tonks.

The English Riviera also has one of the greatest concentrations of attractions in the whole of the UK. Amongst those are the World famous Paignton zoo, Kent's Cavern, The South Devon Steam Railway and Babbacombe Model Village. These and many others enrich any visitor's experience and are open all year round making The English Riviera ideal for winter breaks as well as summer breaks.The year is punctuated by a number of events. Most notable amongst these is The Agatha Christie week which takes place in the second week of September each year. The Queen of Crime was born in Torquay and worked as a pharmacist in her early years in the town. This was where she gained an early useful knowledge of poisons. Many of the books featuring her detectives Hercules Poirot and Jane Marple contain easily identifiable references to the places she knew in her early years. An Agatha Literary trail takes you to some of these. It is also possible to visit her summer home, Greenway which is located a short distance from Torquay on the banks of the River Dart. This National Trust owned property has a stunning location and can be reached by an exciting array of transport including a vintage bus, a WWII patrol boat or a steam train. For those of a less adventurous nature it can also be reached by car BUT these must be booked in advance.

Torquay

Meadfoot Bay is a short distance from the centre of Torquay and is a highly desirable leafy residential area close to the sea. Meadfoot Beach and Bay is a wonderful place to sit for a few hours. There is always something to see as the bay is a favourite place for scuba diving and kayaking. There are coastal footpaths close by which enable visitors to access some beautiful dramatic strengths of coastline.Its close proximity to the centre of Torquay and the Wellswood area means that visitors staying in the Meadfoot have the best of all worlds; Close enough to access all the delights the area has to offer but far enough away to be able to enjoy a tranquil and relaxing break.
