Paul and Lynn are great hosts, very welcoming and helpful. Lovely apartment, perfect for us, and a great location. We don't drive, but you don't need a car here - close to shops/town centre/transport /pubs and the seafront.

After the train journey, it was great to have Paul meet us at the station - and find a wonderful cream tea awaiting us!

Cannot fault, and have booked 2 weeks next year.

Nice location, lovely surroundings close to Torre Abbey and the seafront, not far from town. Lynn and Paul couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Highly recommended.

I stayed here for 2 weeks with my daughter and 2 very young grandchildren and it was great. The flat was fantastically furnished, a cot and highchair were provided for my youngest grandchild. The owners are so friendly and nothing was to much trouble for them. We all enjoyed it so much we have already booked for christmas and the summer. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

“In need of modernisation”
Reviewed August 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Spent a week at Bay Tree Apartments. Owners are super nice and very helpful. However, our apartment was in serious need of updating, especially the bathroom. Carpet onto a hard floor is not very comfortable. Glad we took our own TV and portable aerial as the TV there lost signal on a regular basis, and the WIFI only connected intermittently . We were not aware at time of booking that you have to pay for electricity, so don't forget your pound coins!!

Yes Bay Tree House is pleasant enough,clean tidy and in a quiet area. A twenty minuet level walk from the town centre was most enjoyable through the park and Torre Abbey house. We stayed in the garden flat and was gust fine for what we wanted and was at a fair price. The only complaint although hardly worth mentioning a slight smell of damp. had friends staying in an upstairs flat and they were very happy with there stay.

“Good Apartment with caring owners”

The Garden flat was ideal for myself, husband and 10 month old puppy. Everything we required for our stay was provided for in the apartment and it was well stocked. Location was great and just a few minutes from Torre Abbey and another couple to the seafront. A pleasant 10 min stroll took us into the Marina area. Lynn had a lovely cream tea awaiting us..

After a very enjoyable 6 nights disaster struck. My husband had a heart attack and spent the next 4.5 days in Torbay hospital where he had surgery. Paul took and picked me up from the hospital on that first day. (My children joined me for the next day and half before returning home with our car and puppy). Over the next few days Lynn ensured our puppy was doggy sat as and when necessary. The Garden Flat was rented out for the next week but Lynn & Paul rearranged so I could move to Flat 3 (again this was very nice) which they made available for one week. Luckily my husband was discharged before the week was up and able to return to this flat where he spent the night with me before our son arrived the next day to drive us the 250 miles home. This may be a business but its owners go above and beyond and I would like to say to them publicly a big THANKYOU Lynn & Paul for your kindness and help.

Have just had a great stay. the owners Lynn and Paul were very welcoming making me and my family feel at home straight away. apartment 5 was well equipped with everything you need and they had built a cot up for my young son.
the location is only a 5 minute flat walk to the beach and a further ten minutes to the harbour and town centre from here you can access anywhere in Torbay.
Will be stopping there again (all ready planning on booking summer next year)
Would recommend to friends and family.
What I liked best was that Paul and Lynn were always available and nothing was too much trouble for them.
least liked was the tight turn at the top of the drive (Which Paul is looking into sorting)
