“Completely hustle free for great relaxation”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

From local parking permit to wifi and a fully kitted kitchen - everything you could easily forget you might need for a weekend cottage break was thoughtfully provided for. The location is next to a lovely small secluded shingle beach and a pleasant costal walk into Torquay (~one hour walk by the Coast).

“Will be coming to stay again!”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We just wanted a trip away for a few days and this was perfect. Cassie and Erica couldn't be more helpful and the apartment has everything for starting you up at the apartment. It's difficult to get to down little lanes from the train station etc but makes it a lovely little hideaway. The beach is nice and very close but the bus stop is close to get to Torquay etc. We loved it and can't wait to return at some point!

“just perfect”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We wanted a nice quiet holiday away, and this is definitely what we had a penny farthings. Clean and tidy with everything you need , even tea and coffee. If you dont want to cook I can recommend the pub next door. We had no problems with noise from the pub. The beach is just a short walk away down a number of steps. All in all a lovely place.

“SUPERB LITTLE GEM”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed a four night stay in this delightful cottage. The location was so perfect for us..so peaceful yet within easy reach of the busier Torquay. We were able to bring the dog with us which was a bonus.The beach is literally on your doorstep for lovely walks.The pub next door made us more than welcome & food was lovely there too.We are looking forward to going back again.Would recommend for a lovely winter escape.We were met by the lovely Cassie who was very welcoming into her home.Very well thought out & comfortable accommodation...we will be back !

“Picture Postcard Cottage”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We all had a lovely 3 night stay at this chocolate box cottage and would of liked to stay longer. Great little beach cove down steps a couple of minutes walk away and an award winning pub next door, along with plenty of foothpaths for rambling. The village Scarecrow Festival was on while we stayed and there were some great entries in peoples gardens. When we are back in the Torquay area we will look at staying at either Penny Farthings or Lily Cottage both owned by Cassie and Granny Susan.

“Fantastic,peaceful location”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 for a stay in February 2014

This is a fantastically located flat within a cottage situated very close to a rocky beach. The beach could almost be claimed as private. Although not luxurious the flat is adequate and functional and owner extremely nice and helpful.
