Originally as a 17 bedroom hotel (famed for its breakfasts), then as self catering accommodation in holiday flats and apartments from the mid 1970’s.

Experience The English Riviera - we are conveniently located just round the corner from Preston Sands and Green with it's brightly coloured beach huts and gently shelving sandy beach, but in a lovely quiet corner.  Paignton beaches, Preston and Paignton shopping centres with all their amenities are just a short flat walk away.  Historic Oldway Mansion (built by Isaac Singer and completed by his son Paris, made famous by Isadora Duncan) with it's magnificent architecture, beautiful grounds including the knot garden and tennis courts, is just a 5 minute walk.  Walk where many of our historic figures such as Agatha Christie, I K Brunel and Charles Darwin lived and walked.   Torquay is only one mile away to one side of the bay, the fishing port of Brixham and Dartmouth with it's famous Royal Naval College four miles to the other side.
