Mount Rose Cottage, Torquay, Babbacombe/St Marychurch

Beachfront Holiday home in Torquay with kitchen
Mount Rose is a lovely three hundred year old fully refurnished cottage with a walled garden (nice and safe for the kids) close to the sea, beaches, shops, pubs and restaurants of St Marychurch and Babbacombe. It's only a ten minute walk away from magnificent Babbacombe Downs and the train/ lift down to Oddicombe Beach.

The quaint cottage is surprisingly spacious with a large fully equipped family kitchen , a cosy lounge, two bathrooms; one downstairs with a bath – ideal for children – and one upstairs with a shower. The two bedrooms are spacious and have new beds; one with a double bed, and the other with two single beds. All beds have good mattresses that are intended to ensure that you enjoy your stay. Downstairs in the lounge there is a sofa bed, with a good pull out double bed.

The house is furnished to a high standard giving the comforts of new with the charm of old.

Parking is free on the road on which the house is situated. The bus stop to take you downtown to Torquay harbour is 30 metres from the house, and it takes 12 minutes to get to the harbour.

Hanbury’s award winning (best 5 in country) fish & chip shop within walking distance.

4/5 Good

Fine for a quiet stay.
Nice property, well equipped easy walking distance into town. Parking was difficult though and everything closed very early even at the peak of the summer holidays. Nowhere nearby to eat out, so fine if you want to stay in and go to bed early but if you like a bit of life on your holiday you need to drive to Torquay or further afield and book any restaurants well in advance.

4/5 Good

It was good buses weren’t the best and also not very close to the beach one suitable to swim

5/5 Excellent

A wonderful cottage a credit to the owner it has been tastefully renovated mixing old with new. I can’t think of anything negative to say about this 300 year old cottage although it would’ve been nice to know about the history of it. The wine, chocolates and biscuits were a nice gesture after a long trip, my only gripe and it’s only a small gripe would be there’s no parking in front/on the property but there’s plenty on the streets nearby but don’t let that put you off. If I’m in Torquay again I’ll be definitely booking this place again. Sukhbinder
