“Fantastic cottage, very spacious, close to the quiet beach”
Reviewed 1 November 2012 for a stay in August 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We've stayed in the cottage at the end of August, weather was still fantastic and the walking distance to sandy beaches was essential for us as a family with child under 5. It's really good location for those who like to walk a bit, or you can always take the bus which takes you quickly into Paignton or Torquay (to Brixham it's about 40 mins)
The apartment has 3 bedrooms and can easily accomodate 6 adults, there is nice, big living room and separate dining room (conservatory) which leads into the decked area (glass of wine in the evening?) and not huge but very pretty garden with barbecue area and pond as a bonus! Everything is beautifully decorated and clean.
I'd definitely recommend it, thank you Liz.

“A fantastic holiday cottage close to the sea”
Reviewed 9 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed at Sunnymead last week (amazing weather!), and were really impressed.

I would advise looking on Google Earth to find it, rather than relying on the satnav, as it's down a track off the main road, but nevertheless, easy to find, and a parking space right outside.

The house is really spacious, with a huge living room, big dining table, kitchen, downstairs bathroom, twin and double room downstairs, storage area, and then upstairs is a fantastic big double bedroom with walk in shower room, and a large balcony with a wonderful view of the sea, and table and chairs so you can enjoy the view whilst eating breakfast.

Outside is a garden that has tables and chairs in all corners, so you can follow the sun round!

There were only 2 adults, a toddler and a dog in our party, but the house is plenty big enough for another 4 people.

There's a nice big alcove space on the landing, which was ideal for my son's travel cot - he's too noisy to sleep in our room!

It's equipped with everything you need on holiday like washing up liquid, toilet roll, teatowels, beach stuff, cooking stuff, cold box for picnics, vacuum cleaner, iron etc...

It really is just a short walk to the beach (turn right out the gate, down the track, cross the road, and take the road to the left of the petrol station, through the kissing gate, and down to the sea - 5 minutes walk!).

The nearest dog friendly beach (March - September) is Goodrington North, about 25 minute walk, but this is a very dog friendly area, with lots of space to let your dog off the lead for a run around.

We tested the local Indian takeaway (Thaliks?), and I can thoroughly recommend the Chicken Tikka Dansak - mmmmmmmmmmm.

For food, it's best walking/driving to the Sainsburys, as the local Co-op was naff, and only seemed to stock junk!

My only negative would be that the wi-fi signal seemed very weak - not sure where it was coming from, but struggled to pick it up in some rooms!

Oh, and I should mention that access to the property is down a few steep steps, so we tended to leave our pushchair in the car at the top!
