    The Lookout sleeping up to 2 guests

    Situated in a fantastic location with stunning valley and sea views, this delightful apartment is the perfect holiday home.
    12 steps to entrance. All on the ground floor.
    Living/dining room: With electric fire, 47" Smart TV with Netflix, wooden floor and French doors leading to decked area.
    Kitchen: With gas cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and wooden floor.
    Bedroom: With double bed.
    Shower room: With double shower cubicle and toilet.
    Both properties: Gas central heating, gas, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Welcome pack. Decked sitting-out area (shared). Garden furniture. 1-acre grounds (shared with other property on-site). Bike store. Private parking for 1 car. No smoking. Please note: There are 12 steps to the decked area and an unfenced pond in the grounds.
    The Lookout (ref 30587) and The Garden Flat (ref 29650) are both tastefully decorated apartments situated peacefully off the beaten track in an acre of hilltop gardens with open views across the valley to the sea. They are attached to the owner’s home but offer privacy and great views. A large shared decking area overlooks Ilsham Valley, and each property has its own garden furniture, ideal for cream teas, enjoying a glass of wine or just relaxing and taking in the view.
    The Garden Flat enjoys a private, covered patio area close to a large pond, and there is plenty of outside space to enjoy, along with a large area of the garden is enclosed which allows pets to roam freely.
    Tucked away on the boundary of Lincombe Woods, you are within walking distance of Wellswood village shops, wooded walks, meadows and beaches. Meadfoot Beach is closest and arguably Torbay’s finest. With its southerly outlook, clean blue waters and views, it deserves its reputation as one of the region’s best.
    Wellswood village is a 10-minute wooded walk away, and is one of the most charming areas of Torquay. Everything you need for day to day living is here including a pub, supermarket, ATM, restaurants, cafés, pharmacy, post office, patisserie, salons, barber, wine bar and village pantry amongst others.
    The local dog-friendly pub is known for its excellent food, sunny beer garden and friendly atmosphere. The village is also the birthplace of crime writer Agatha Christie and was home of the Gleneagles Hotel, which inspired John Cleese’s ’Fawlty Towers’. Also offering a cosy, warm winter let, many guests return to enjoy an off season ‘English Riviera’ winter break. The apartments are a 5-minute drive to the marina, harbour and main Torquay shopping areas. Beach ¾ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    Sally – 11 Oct 2020
    "Fantastic location, amazing views, great walls on doorstep. Clean apartment."
    James – 6 Oct 2020
    "James is a very genial host and the accommodation ideally place for those who wish to forsake the car for a few days and walk into Torquay, to the local shops or take advantage of the local walks of various lengths which are described in the Welcome Pack. We loved the views of the sea and the twinkling of the lights from the valley below after dusk."
    Stephen – 21 Sep 2020

    Jayne – 10 Sep 2020
    "Spectacular view, spent evenings on the terrace watching sunset. Flat was comfortable and had everything you needed. Dogs were made very welcome and garden was secure. Thank you for the welcome goodies. Would recommend people stay at The Lookout."
    Michele – 14 Aug 2020
    "Fantastic views, great quiet location. Friendly and helpful owner. Felt at home and relaxed straight away.Great mix of interesting, scenic and social locations within easy reach.Will definitely return, well worth the long drive"
    Karen – 11 Mar 2020
    "Was at the lookout between 29th feb and 7th March. Met by James who showed us round and explained everything really well. Loved our welcome treat and so did Tilly. Hints and tips to places close by. Recommended The Kent’s for food, we took his recommendation and visited there 3 times that week. Weather some days wasn’t great but took advantage of the rain so chillaxed and watched Netflix. Will try and return."
    Alan – 16 Feb 2020
    "We loved our holiday at the lookout..very friendly owners.Hope to visit again soon."
    Lisa – 12 Oct 2019
    "The owners were amazing the location and views were stunning. We had a fantastic time with our 3 dogs."
    Catherine – 27 Jul 2019
    "Welcome we received was good. The view was lovely but couldn’t enjoy the decking area as it was very tired & rails felt unsafe. Screws protruded making it dangerous for dogs. We chose the property for the view, but couldn’t really sit outside. Boiler broke Friday morning & couldn’t be fixed so we had to shower in the accommodation that our friends were staying in next door. Also driveway was in desperate need of repair with large potholes down a narrow drive. Was thankful we came in our old car as we wouldn’t have been happy parking our low profile car there"
    "The Lookout is a wonderful place to enjoy a relaxing holiday. The views are beautiful and the location was perfect for us. We were made welcome and received a bottle of wine as a welcome gift and were provided with things that made our dog more comfortable, ie. dog blanket, toy and dog biscuits. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and hope to return in the future!!"
    "One of the best places we have stayed completely home from home which made our holiday so relaxing"
    "wonderful location with stunning views"
    Confirmed guest
    "This is a lovely place, you will fall in love with the view, the wildlife on your doorstep. Not many downsides, local shops 10 minute walk, but is steep hills and steps. Many places not to far by car, so or public transport."
    "Great place. Will definitely be returning."
    "Lovely getaway, very well equipped and cosy. Amazing view and very secluded.Shops and pubs within a 10 minute walk, food at the local pub was reasonably priced and the burgers in particular were great.Only thing worth pointing out as something to consider as a negative, if you’re less able bodied and not keen on hills or steep steps maybe this isn’t the property for you unless you not planning on walking anywhere.We had a great time with great weather and relaxing evenings on the deck enjoying the views and quiet surroundings."
    "This was our second stay here an loved it (again), beautiful location with amazing views, host is very welcoming an is really good value for money.. highly reccomended?"
    "We stayed at The Lookout for Christmas and loved it. When we arrived, we found our sitting room decorated with a Christmas tree and other festive decorations, plus a Christmas 'hamper' of wine, Xmas crackers, shortbread and chocolate. There were even dog treats for our furry friends. This was a lovely touch.The accommodation itself is delightful. Very spacious, clean and tastefully decorated/furnished, with the most spectacular views of the sea from both the sitting room and bedroom. There are also big patio doors onto a large decking area, plus a lovely, meandering garden (again, with fabulous views). From the garden there's a path down to a road and from there a woodland walk down to the beach. The owners are very welcoming and friendly to both humans and dogs and provide details of some great dog walks in the area. A really special place and I'm sure we'll be back!"
    "The people that live above are very noisy late at night and early morning"
