Description

This former fisherman's cottage is delightfully situated in a pretty terrace in Babbacombe Bay. Oddicombe Beach with the Cliff Railway is literally round the corner, a pleasant walk across the green space known as the Downs. Also conveniently close is a theatre, tea rooms, a patisserie, ice cream parlour, plenty of lovely walking, the beautifully situated Cary Arms pub (down a steep hill), an award winning fish and chip shop, the South West coast path and a model village! Torquay harbour is about 1 mile away, a lovely walk if you want to follow the coast path or on an easy bus route for those less athletic.

Devon is an outstandingly beautiful county and Dartmoor is a short drive away. If you are keen on the outdoors, this is an area renowned for walking, climbing, sea kayaking, diving, coasteering etc. If cream teas are more your thing, you are spoilt for choice and Devon is fast becoming as renowned for its quality produce as for its natural beauty.Torquay is famous for its

Find time to fit in a ferry ride or two as well, to Dartmouth or Brixham.

Babbacombe is a gem - away from the huslte and bustle and the bars of the quayside in Torquay but with its own eateries and spectacular views. Asthe locals say, whatever the season, a walk across the Downs is an uplifting start to the day.

Location description from owner

The English Riviera region

Babbacombe is a quiet sideshoot of Torquay situated with a wonderful panorama of beautiful Babbacombe Bay. From the grassy Babbacombe Downs visitors sit and enjoy the fine views over the bay towards Teignmouth and Exmouth. Oddicombe Beach is below and while the path down to the beach is steep - and a lot steeper coming back up - there is a cliff railway/funicular so it is accessible to most people. The beach has a bar, cafe shop and watersports and good seating on steps while deckchairs are available for hire and kayaks, paddleboards are also there for hire.This is just one of the beaches. Our visitors are spoilt for choice and a full list is provided to our guests including a list of dog friendly beaches. Explore a little and you will find some hidden coves: Anstey's Cove is a gem.A premier gastropub is even nearer, again down a steep hill but the views are worth it.There is excellent walking from the cottage along the coast path and over the Downs towards Torquay, approximately 1 mile south, a lovely walk with again fine views over Torbay.Attractions within walking distance include: Babbacombe Model Village, a theatre, award winning fish and chip restaurants, a Byegones Museum, Kents cavern plus a range of shops in Babbacombe and St Marychurch, excellent tea shops and a patisserie, many hotels and cafes. There is a Waitrose less than a kilometre away. In Torquay itself there is the aquarium, Living Coasts, the harbour, a Big Wheel in the summer months, a theatre, a cinema, arcades, a tourist information centre plus a range of restaurants to suit every pocket and taste, Michelin starred restaurants as well as budget eateries.The beach at Abbey Sands has a wide beach which is particularly suitable for families with shallow waters and sand excellent for building sandcastles!

Torquay

Babbacombe and Torquay are part of the Torbay area and include Paignton - a visit to the zoo is a must - and the charming fishing port of Brixham with its replica Golden Hind. Ferries are available in the summer to take visitors to Dartmouth, well worth a visit, and of course the Agatha Christe house Greenway is an easy drive, unless you want to take the vintage bus, steam train or bus.The Bay is well known for its palms and temperate climate, though be prepared for a coastal breeze and occasional sea mists - that's when to head for one of the beach cafes for a hot chocolate or a cream tea at Widecombe in the Moor. Totnes is also a popular destination - the Friday market is particularly good. Devon is well known for its moors, picturesque villages and coastal scenery was well as for its history and geology. There are numerous beauty spots and local walking groups are always keen to welcome visitors. The cathedral city of Exeter is a pleasant 30 minute drive.Within a short walking distance of St George cottage is a diving centre. The witches hat shaped rock at Ansteys Cove is well known to climbers. Visitors can try all manner of watersports. About 400 m from the cottage is a disability shop where mobility scooters are available for hire.Plainmoor football ground is about half a kilometre from Babbacombe.There is something for everyone!

“Perfect base for Babbacombe holiday”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2016

We loved being in this cottage. The lounge carpet is very light and was a worry for any spills ... but we managed the week safely! The car easily parked on the front, the garden isn't private or enclosed but it is nice to have that bit of space and we didn't need a garden being so close to the Downes. Kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms all okay. We would certainly stay again and happy to recommend to others. Lovely gas fire in the lounge too for cooler evenings and a big TV ... no DVD player.

Owner's reply: THANKYOU for this review. We are looking into the DVD player. You would be very welcome to return!

“Fantastic Cottage by the Sea”

Reviewed 13 Dec 2015

The cottage was just perfect. It was light and spacious and had all the little details that make a weekend like this great, including easy instructions on arrival and a super friendly and thoughtful host. The cottage was very comfortable with one double and 1 twin bedroom, both with ensuites. Perfect for a family or group of friends, or a nice little romantic weekend away. The property is in a great location with lovely sea view from the master bedroom and lounge and only a short walk to various beaches, shops, restaurants and pubs. The location couldn't be better. Overall a fantastic little break, highly recommend it!

Owner's reply: Thanks for the thumbs up! So glad you enjoyed your stay. Tessa
