Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Torquay was "discovered" in the Victoria era, with the arrival of the railway and popularised by nobility. It is called the English Riviera for its natural beauty, sandy beaches and spectacular coastal scenery. The sheltered sailing waters and marina provide good facilities for yachtsmen. Away from the coast, the gentle hills of Devon hide pretty market towns and dramatic beauty of the Dartmoor National Park. The university city of Exeter is approximately 23 miles away, with its historic cathedral, vibrant shopping centre and regional airport. The rail network from Torquay provides fast travel to London and a dual carriageway to the M5 motorway at Exeter is being extended by construction of the Kingskerswell bypass, which will shorten the journey times in and out of the area.

Distances (approximate)

Exeter - 23 miles
Newton Abbot - 7 miles
