perfect location only a short walk into town, the property itself is very large with everything you will need supplied. Dawn and Stephen helped us with an issue we had on arrival within 5 minutes - we will hopefully return in the future.

About the neighborhood
Torquay is a fantastic seaside town with it's Victorian grandeur combined with the modern marina. It is famous for Fawlty Towers and a lively nightlife. But it has breathtaking views, fantastic beaches and many small areas each having it's own unique character away from the hustle and bustle of the centre. One of these is Meadfoot which we believe has the best of everything. Walk down to Torquay harbour or the other way to Meadfoot beach. Near to great restaurants, but in a quiet tree lined street with open views across Torquay. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.
How to get there
By car follow the M5 all the way to the bottom. Then follow the A380 to Torquay (becomes the A3022). Follow the signposts to the seafront. Turn left onto the seafront and drive along the seafront. At the end of the harbour turn left onto Torwood Street. At the traffic lights turn right and head straight up the hill (Meadfoot Road). Turn right onto Meadfoot Lane and immediate left onto Vane Hill Road. On the right is a narrow, sharp lane opening. Turn down there and 51 Meadfoot Lane is on the left. By trainTrain services are available to Torquay Station from London and other major cities. There are some direct trains, but normally change at Newton Abbot., from here a Taxi will take 10 minutes. We will send you a welcome pack on booking with fully direction and additional information to make your stay at Rowell house special.
