St George cottage

Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Torquay, English Riviera, Devon, England
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 thin...

Interaction with guests
We live less than a mile away and can be there if needed to sort any issues that may arise. We are rarely away when we have guests though it does happen and we have a local contact for those cases. Guests see themselves in and we leave them in peace unless there is a need for us to be there. Very occasionally we may need to cut the grass while they are out or access the shed to remove refuse but we ask if this is ok when we do.

About the neighborhood
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... more
Getting around
Very good bus services with stops conveniently close by. There are the usual tourist buses too.
There are country buses such as the Haytor Hoppa which will take you to Dartmoor. Perhaps most fun is with thebferries. these are remarkably inexpensive and a trip to Brixham or Dartmouth is great fun.
Train to Exeter or Exmouth or Plymouth is easy. A lovely day out is to go to St Ives by rail. A few changes but real Enid Blyton country along the route.
Cycle paths also good with several cycle trials and a velodrome.
