Reviews Cottages Torquay
We love coming to Torquay. This time we stayed in a cottage which we booked through Karen Durant from Holidays 4U. It was in a fantastic location, in the little village of St Marychurch, which is near the Babbacombe area of Torquay. Everything was very nearby. There was a quaint little shopping precinct which has been pedestrianised with lots of handy shops: grocery store Happy Apple, vegetable and fruit shop, wool and knitting shop, dog groomers, newsagent, Boots the chemist, pet shop, clothes shop, shoe shop, hair dressers, cheese shop, Co-op supermarket and lots of charity shops where you can pick lots of bargains. We went to the restaurant Memories Bistro which was fantastic. We knew we would have to book 6 weeks in advance as they are only open 2 days a week. I had the turbot which was grilled with a delicious sauce. On another evening we took a taxi to Rockfish. They have a wide selection of fish and unlimited supply of free chips. The weather was very good during our holiday. We took a stroll out to Babbacombe Downs where the views across the ocean are fabulous. There are several hotels along here. But our favourite place is Angels Tea Shop. They serve lunch and very good cream teas. It’s also worthwhile trying their cakes, in particular the three layer Victoria Sponge Sandwich Cake. We have been told that the bus service is very good in Torquay. It certainly seems to be very regular, although we didn’t try it ourselves. Our accommodation was very nicely decorated and the owners had left a welcome pack which was a nice touch. We enjoyed sitting out on the sunny patio to enjoy a glass or two of wine.
