About the neighbourhood
The Haute Epine is situated only 7 minutes walk from the railway station, 12 mins walk to the main harbour, shops and night life and 9 minutes walk to the sandy beach and main theatre. There is also a good bus service to all areas just 2 minutes from our door. We are in an ideal situation for exploring south devon or walking part of the world famous South west Coast Path. The village of Cockington, famous for not changing in the last hundred years and full of old world charm and loads of tourist locations. Bowl greens are only a short walk away and is the fun and min-golf pitches. Parking is in the roads around us but it is free.
Good base for walking the World Famous South West Coastal Path
Getting around
The train station is just down the road if you want to travel into Cornwall or Somerset for a day out or explore more of Devon.
The bus service in Torbay is excellent and allows you to travel and explore for a very low cost. We are just around the corner from the bus stops and have full information available for guests to plan their outings.
If you are into walking we are on the South West Coast Path, the longest footpath in England, and people come from all over the world to walk this.
You do not have to be into walking as such as the parts nearest to us are suitable for a family walk.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Exeter: 30.0 km
Railway: Torquay: 1.0 km
If travelling by car we are easy to find. It is a straight road until you reach Torre Station when you need to take the right hand lane heading for the seafront. When you pass the petrol station we are the second turning on your left. Half way up the hill is a crossroads and we are the second house pass this on your right. We do not have a car park but it is free parking on the roads around us.
If coming by coach it is only 20 minutes away and the railway station a mere 7 mins walk or cheap taxi ride.
There is an excellent bus service in Torbay so you can get around and enjoy exploring without the hassle of driving.
