Luxury Holiday Accommodation in the English Riviera
Our purpose built, deluxe self-catering apartment has everything the modern holidaymaker desires. Situated on the cliff-edge of Babbacombe, just 2 miles from Torquay harbour, this two bedroom holiday apartment is luxury at it’s finest.
The breathtaking uninterrupted view from the apartment showcases the gorgeous landscape of Exmouth, Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton. So good is the view that the lounge was used by the BBC to film an interview with The Prime Minister, David Cameron.
Adjacent to the apartment is the famous Babbacombe Downs Cliff Top Gardens. Additionally, the Cliff Railway is on your door step to transport you straight to the tranquil Oddicombe Beach, one of the most scenic beaches in the county. During the summertime, you can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, boating or promenading on the beach.
Public transportation is available if you are travelling in by train or bus:
- Local Torbay Buses stop a mere 100 metres away and take you to any popular destination within the bay region.
- The Torquay train station is 4 miles and can be easily accessed by taxi.
- Exeter Airport is 24 miles and again can be accessed by taxi.
