Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Fantastic 3 bedroom spacious accommodation, close to Torquay city centre. The host Sandra was lovely and made us feel very welcome. The accommodation is beautifully decorated and light and airy and slept 7 people comfortably. Local amenities close by including the beach, shops, bars and restaurants. Would definitely recommend and happily return.

Booking cancelled
We were due to travel to Avenue Park on the 8th August for 7 nights with my family, one household from Birmingham and myself and my husband from Manchester. I made the booking using my address in Manchester after we decided it was too risky to travel abroad as planned. However, when Manchester went back into lockdown the host swiftly e-mailed me with concerns as to our reservation which I ABSOLUTELY understood. After receiving the e-mail I promptly responded stating that we (members of the party who are from Manchester) would not be travelling and would be obeying the government guidelines. The remaining party (again all from Birmingham and not in lockdown) would still like to come. Initially when making the booking communication with the host was excellent but then we were told simply to ‘speak to the agency...’ to then learn that the whole booking had been cancelled. To say I was devastated is an understatement, my 5 year old nephew had been looking forward to this break so much. My brother had to explain to him that he wouldn’t be going on holiday which was very difficult after an already confusing and upsetting year much of which was spent isolating at home with two parents who we trying to balance working from home and home schooling etc and new born twins. I still don’t understand why the reservation was not honoured with the amended guests, excluding my husband and I. The situation was dealt with extremely poorly. We have received a full refund but it does not compensate for the disappointment and stress caused, extending to my brother’s 3 children having their holiday completely cancelled just a week before we were due to go. I am unsure whether this dreadful decision was driven by the host or the agency however, either way, I would have expected more from the host in terms of our options rather than an abrupt and blunt cancellation, then washing her hands of the situation. I would not consider re-booking.

Sadly it’s been a very difficult year for everyone, personally and business wise. Trading for over 13years I have never had a booking cancelled without good reason. Unfortunately this was cancelled with a full refund and loss of revenue to me due to government guidelines and agent liaison beyond my control. I do hope you are able to get a holiday when things settle down.

First class home from home
This villa is the front of a large house that has been converted from a bed and breakfast establishment and it is very large, bright and airy. We parked two cars on the road for the whole week we were there without any problems and the property is in a great location near the train station and a moderate walk into Torquay harbour area. There is also a small garden area with table,chairs, umbrella and bar b que = this is at the front of the property but well elevated to ensure your privacy; we enjoyed this space as the weather was good. The owner is lovely and she prepared the property to a very high standard, with full instructions for the appliances (hobs, dishwasher, washing machine etc as well as giving plenty of tips of places to visit in the area. The property has a large kitchen diner that is very well equipped - there is so much cutlery and crockery we did not have to keep washing up after each meal which is unusual because you usually get just the right number for the occupants. This room also has a large flat screen TV on the wall. The lounge is just as good with large comfortable settees and another large flat screen TV with netflix included. There is nothing more you could want to feel more at home here. There are three huge double bedrooms each with its own en-suite (one bedroom can be set up as 3 single beds) which is great because no-one will have the "best" room because they are all "best". There is good wardrobe and drawer space with plenty of towels in the bathrooms. I dont think there is anything that can be added to this holiday home and I absolutely loved the high quality and comfort of this property - I will definitely book again. Next time I book I will definitely contact the owner directly rather than use an agent - there is a substantial price difference. This may not be the cheapest property but it is great value for money based on the quality. Thank you Sandra!! You have a wonderful holiday home and we hope to visit again.

Great location, spacious, all rooms en suite, home from home.
We had a great week in Torquay, location is only a few minutes walk to the front, all rooms were, clean, spacious and well laid out. Kitchen and dining table are excellent and we enjoyed breakfast and any evening meals we had in-house. Kitchen is well equipped with everything you need and lounge the same. TV network and Wi-fi were excellent. Sandra was a great hostess and there if needed, but also left us to it when not required. Will be looking to stay here again if/when we re-visit the South coast.

Fabulous conversion to luxury holiday house
The Villa has been converted from a B&B to a very well specced three bedroom house. The kitchen diner is fully equipped with everything including a chilled wine rack. Living room is well furnished and comfortable with TV and music streaming services, which were a real bonus. Bedrooms were very comfortable with high quality mattresses, which was a real surprise, and complete with their own en suites. There is also a seperate bathroom with bath, but we didn't need to use this as we tend to mainly shower. Overall we were really impressed with the quality and thought given to the villa. The location was great and only a five minute walk to the beach through the ancient ruins of Torre Abbey. Torquay seafront has been greatly improved in recent years and walks along the prom very enjoyable. There's a lot of good restaurants to choose from too. Highly recommended.

Beautifully relaxing one night stay
Stayed for one night - middle of the week. Sandra was a charming hostess. Room was amazing. Such a gorgeous house. Close to all amenities, 10 minute walk and very pleasant it was - walking through Torre Abbey to the beach front. The bed was so comfortable- had the best night sleep. Scrummy breakfast with a wide variety available.

A relaxing 10 day break in a lovely enviroment.
right from the beginning we were made to feel at home, treated with the utmost courtesy and accommodated in excellent comfort. Room was superb, breakfast time was a lovely start to every day with a warm friendly atmosphere where a great many tips were shared amongst fellow guests covering places of interest and locations for eating out, our hosts extended the highest level of service we have seen in a long time, above and beyond many top end hotels we have used in the past, we will be returning for another visit in the not too distant future as we still have plenty to see and look forward to the relaxing atmosphere at the end of a hard days exploring, thank you from both of us. Mark and Karen from Manchester.

Amazing stay & superb hospitality
We went to Torquay for 2 nights at this b&b. The host Sandra provides excellent customer service, warm and welcoming atmosphere. The rooms are super cozy, especially the bed. Very clean and attention to detail. Location is great as well. We had an amazing stay and would recommend this b&b to everyone who is in the area.

Map
About the neighbourhood
Avenue Park is situated in an ideal location, just away from the hustle but close enough to walk to it. We have several beaches to choose from all close by and many good food restaurants to suit all pockets and tastes. There is a wealth of things do do and see and places to visit. It can be relaxing and unwinding or exciting and challenging, its up to you! Children have lovely places to visit , Paignton Zoo, Living Coasts, Dinosaur World, Pennywell farm etc. I'm sure you will enjoy your time here whatever you choose to do, or just relax in my accommodation and take a break.
Getting around
It is so easy to get around the bay and area. Buses run regularly and take British Bus passes ( not Welsh - sorry ) Family tickets or weekly tickets are inexpensive and you can travel all over Torbay all day and evening. Walking is lovely as Avenue Park is ideally placed 5 mins to the beach and sea front. 10 mins from the Theatre and restuarants and a further 10 mins to the town and harbour. Nearby Paignton and Babbacombe etc offer variety and walking or buses are good ways to see them Brixham can be reached by ferry across the bay which takes about 35 mins and is a lovely way to travel and see the coastline,bus or car are options too. Dartmouth is 25 mins away by car and is a pretty harbour town famous for its Naval history and college.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
Travelling to Torquay is easier by car now we have the bypass. Most travellers come along this into the bay and I am situated near the beach so follow signs for the sea front. I am on Avenue Road just before Torre Abbey and parking is free on all the roads around me (apart from yellow lines). I have a small car park at the rear too. Villa guests often park on the road opposite the Villa as its easy to unload from there etc. The Apartment is at the back of the building off Falkland Road, and parking outside the door is ideal, or on the road free if preferred. From the M5 follow signs for Torquay, follow signs for sea front and you will drive down Avenue Road until you see my sign high on the house on the left. The Apartment is off Faulkland road running parallel at the back of Avenue road. Exeter Airport is about 30 miles away but an easy drive of about 35 mins. Bristol airport takes about 1.5 hrs drive depending on traffic and is outside Bristol city. Trains come to Torquay and the station is a 10 minute walk away. The bus station is a quick taxi ride away and has regular coaches travelling countrywide and from Heathrow and Gatwick etc. Bike hire and car hire are available locally if you arrive by public transport. If you want to bring a bicycle by train then please make sure you book this in advance.
