The child and pet friendly apartment is perfect for walks on the beach and the South West coastal paths.

The apartment’s private entrance is accessible via its outside stairs. Once inside you will find a hallway with ample cupboard and hanging space, a kitchen with electric oven, grill,microwave, fridge and plenty of utensils; a double bedroom, a lounge with a pull out double sofa bed and a dining table for four, and a bathroom with a bath (but no shower). You’ll also find a television, dvd player, free-sat channels, free wifi, books, games and DVDs.

Guests are welcome to use the front and side gardens. The flat has gas central heating and hot water. Linen, bedding and towels are provided. Guests have use of a shared washing machine, tumble dryer and washing line in the downstairs utility area.

This apartment has a double bed and a double sofa bed. We would recommend it is suitable for up to three adults or two adults and two children (it all depends on how cosy you want to get on the sofa bed). We don’t charge more per guest, the price you pay is for the apartment.

There is lots of free street parking close by around the village as well as a free pass to use the beach car park ensuring guaranteed parking all year round.

We are child friendly and can provide a travel cot and high chair on request.

We are also pet friendly and always welcome well behaved clean pets at no extra charge. The beach and local pub are doggie friendly too, and there are plenty of places to walk nearby.

Torquay and Teignmouth are the closest towns, and you will find plenty of top restaurants and eateries in both. You will find a guide to the local restaurants waiting for you in the cottage when you arrive.

There are lots of activities for kids in the surrounding towns - try a day out at Kent's Cavern the world famous prehistoric caves or the fabulous Paignton Zoo. For the adventurous there is Splashdown Water Park, Woodlands Adventure Park, Crealy World of Adventures, Go Ape, and much much more.

A car is by far the most convenient but buses and taxis are available. There are no shops in the village so we recommend stocking up before you arrive. We will supply addresses of the local supermarkets which are 10 minutes away in your arrival information.

This is a non-smoking thatched property, but smoking is allowed in the garden. Be warned that mobile phone coverage is almost non-existent in the village - so you really can escape from it all. We do however have free wifi throughout the apartment.

If you are looking for more accommodation please see my other apartment Lily Cottage which sleeps five people on the same estate.

“Lovely location, great apartment, warm welcome”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

A spacious one-bed apartment with everything you'd need on holiday in a very quiet village, off the beaten track. Perfect location for walks along the SW Coastal path, which runs virtually past the front door, with a really nice pub/restaurant (actually more of the latter) next door. And a beach (coarse red sand, down 130-odd steps) also on the doorstep.

“perfect peace in lovely setting”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2013

I went with my daughter to chill out after my very tiring book tour. It would be the perfect place to sit and write another book, although I just enjoyed doing as little as possible. Cassie, the owner, is delightful and so helpful. We didn't have a car and it wasn't a problem as we could get the hourly bus to Torquay to shop. We loved the walking, the nearby beach and the blissful tranquility of the area. Devon is such a friendly place and Torquay is a lovely town. But we fell in love with Maidencombe and Penny Farthing: perfect for a couple, a single person, or a two people, with one sleeping in the living room. I wish we'd had another week.
