Torquay, English Riviera, Devon, England
Rowell House is an extremely spacious period three bedroomed Grade II listed property in the quiet, but convenient location of Meadfoot. It enjoys open views over Torquay and is a short walk to Torquay harbour and the award winning Meadfoot Beach. We have refurbished Rowell House to a high standard showing off it's fine period features while incorporating everything that is required for modern day living. Rowell House provides high quality bedding and towels, wifi, Virgin media tv, board games and much more all included in your stay.

We have a Tripp trapp high chair, travel cot, toddler loo seat and steps so we are very child friendly (as well as having two boys aged 11 and 13 of our own).

We hope you choose to stay at Rowell house as we have tried to make it extremely comfortable and home from home.

All the positive reviews below capture the essence of Rowell House so I won't repeat what has already been said. We enjoyed a week here. The place is well equipped, comfortable (especially the large master bed), and despite being a 5 minute stroll from the harbour in a quiet location. Parking is free and easy.

perfect location only a short walk into town, the property itself is very large with everything you will need supplied. Dawn and Stephen helped us with an issue we had on arrival within 5 minutes - we will hopefully return in the future.

About the neighbourhood
Torquay is a fantastic seaside town with it's Victorian grandeur combined with the modern marina. It is famous for Fawlty Towers and a lively nightlife. But it has breathtaking views, fantastic beaches and many small areas each having it's own unique character away from the hustle and bustle of the centre. One of these is Meadfoot which we believe has the best of everything. Walk down to Torquay harbour or the other way to Meadfoot beach. Near to great restaurants, but in a quiet tree lined street with open views across Torquay. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.
