Torquay Holiday Rental / Crossways Apple Tree Apartment
Reviews Torquay Cottages
We stayed in a holiday cottage in Torquay which we booked through Holidays 4U. We have been coming to Torquay for many years and know the area quite well. We were pleased with our cottage this time around. The views surrounding the cottage were actually truly superb. We also did a lot of walking. There are some very good coastal walks. We drove to Babbacombe Downs and took the cliff railway down to Oddicombe beach. A truly spectacular piece of engineering history. They allow dogs as well. Then we walk around from Oddicombe beach to Babbacombe beach. We weren’t brave enough to walk up to the top of the cliff – it is very steep! So we just turned around and took the easy route via the cliff railway again. On other days we explored Maidencombe beach, Ansteys cove and Meadfoot beach. A word of warning on Meadfoot beach. We went down the steps from the roadside down onto the beach. The edge of the water was around 6 feet away. We were busy chatting away sitting on the sand. Suddenly a diver walked by saying “you do realise the sea is coming in fast”! If you are reading this Mr diver, thank you so much. We ran to the steps to find that they were partly submerged in water already. Thank goodness it was a calm day, so we could take off our shoes and wade through the sea water to reach the steps. It wouldn’t have been pleasant if the waves had been crashing against the sea wall! There should be a sign up, please Torbay Council. Anyway drama over – we had a very pleasant holiday.
