Situation - Situated high on a limestone plateau that affords this terrific house great views of the Bay and the harbour, which is why the coastguard originally constructed this look out here in the 18th Century. 200ft above the Blue Flag awarded Meadfoot Beach, this natural plateau provides a marvellous vantage point over the bay. Daddy is an old Devonian word referring to the devil, who locals thought used to reside in a cave at the base of the cliff.

Torquay is situated on the south Devon coast and was a grand anchorage favoured by the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars. Torquay soon benefited from their presence as smart lodging houses were built to accommodate the officers. With a south-facing aspect, miles of sandy beaches and the arrival of the railway in 1848, its growth as a holiday destination for the rich and famous was spectacular. Tor Bay was chosen for the 1948 Olympic sailing events and the harbour with its large marina, elegant Georgian terraces, palm trees and subtropical gardens, remains the most attractive area.

Torbay benefits from a full range of well-respected state and independent schools including the traditional grammar school model. Further afield, the county capital of Exeter provides all of the shopping and dining experiences that one could wish for. Exeter's international airport offers a wide variety of business and leisure destinations within Europe and beyond. Mainline rail links can be found in Newton Abbot.
