For visitors to Devon holiday cottages make an ideal base if staying on the English Riviera. Sun and sea lovers can select between some 20 beaches along this stretch of the coast. Well within reach of Torquay, these properties are in the village of Maidencombe, which has changed very little over time with the thatched cottages and a pub being a picturesque feature of the village. The sand and shingle beach of Maidencombe Beach is a delightful little cove, surrounded by red sandstone cliffs. There is good access to the coastal paths, giving excellent views of the rugged coastline, and the walk to Watcombe which passes beneath Giant Rock leading to a beautiful sandy beach is recommended.

Set on the coastal road, just 600 yards above sheltered Maidencombe Beach and the village’s pretty thatched inn, these six, very comfortable, furnished holiday properties all have separate entrances and enjoy the use of an acre of attractively landscaped gardens with extensive sea views. They are ideally situated for the coastal path, yet still enjoy a peaceful and tranquil setting for abundant local wildlife. Primrose (a ground floor apartment), Bluebell (set on the first floor) and Foxglove (on the second floor with a roof terrace giving spectacular sea views) are situated in a purpose-built extension to the owner’s Victorian residence, whilst Laurel and Chestnut (2-storey wings) and Poppy (a first floor apartment) are all part of the original house. The ‘English Riviera’ is famous for its mild climate and is ideal for year-round breaks. Torquay, with its many amenities, is only 4 miles away and Teignmouth, Dartmouth, South Hams and Dartmoor are all within easy reach. Golf and good walking locally. Shops 2 miles, pub 600 yards.
All on ground floor: Living room/dining area. Kitchen. 2 bedrooms: 1 double with en-suite shower room and toilet, 1 twin with en-suite shower room and toilet.
