I live within a mile of the apartment. The neighbourhood Bay Fort Mansions is a lovely Victorian villa that has been sympathetically converted into apartments to retain the beautiful original features of the property. Its location, above Rock Walk and facing south, features views over Torquay and across the bay to Paignton and Brixham. Bay Fort Mansions has recently received a Blue Plaque from English Heritage in recognition of Second World War heroine, Muriel Byck. With unrestricted views, guests can marvel at the annual firework displays, watch the amazing Red Arrows as part of Torbay Regatta or simply relax and absorb the stunning panoramic views stretching along the coast. Torquay is home to an array of popular attractions, many of which are within short walking distance, including the marine themed Living Coasts and the historic Tor Abbey with it’s Spanish Barn. Other attractions in the town include the pre-historic caves at Kents Cavern, Babbacombe Model Village and a step back in time at Bygones. Torquay is also the birth place of the world famous crime writer Agatha Christie, and many guests of Blue Chip's apartments follow in her footsteps along the Agatha Christie Mile and discover what inspired her. For those in search of some tranquillity then Cockington Country Parks offers miles of woodland and parkland to explore. Getting around Beyond Torquay there are regular bus and train services to Plymouth and Exeter, with the train station only a 15 minute walk away. Take time to also visit iconic Dartmoor National Park and experience the raw natural beauty of Devon. Unrestricted on street parking is available in the area directly outside the property. Other things to note Access to the apartment is via a flight of stairs.More

A lovely studio ideally located for quick access to the harbour, restaurants etc. The pictures really don't do the view justice and sitting on the balcony to enjoy it was wonderful.
