A hair dryer is supplied as well as an iron and ironing board.

The living area is furnished with a two seater sofa, a relaxing armchair, a digital Free view TV with built in DVD player and WI-FI which is free throughout. There is a wall mounted electric thermostatic radiator. Adjacent to the stairwell is the locking shower room with integral toilet and a wall mounted hand sanitizer dispenser. Due to size constraints there is only one wash basin which is located in the kitchenette. Above the wash basin is a retractable shaving mirror with stainless shelf. Freshly laundered hand and bath towels together with tea towels are supplied throughout.

The cosy bedroom is located upstairs in the apex of the roof space, comprising a low level double bed with two bedside cabinets, lamps, drawer storage, DAB radio, clothes hangers and flush led roof lighting. There is a fixed UPVC window to the front aspect with opaque privacy screen film and fixed vertical black out blinds. The opaque screen film and black out window blinds are to ensure your ultimate privacy from outside. To the rear, at the top of the stairs is an opening UPVC escape window with affixed black out roller blind. There is a portable 2 Kilowatt thermostatic electric convector heater and a floor standing electric cooling fan for use during the relative seasons as and when required.

Torbay Information

Torquay is a sophisticated traditional British seaside resort occupying a convenient coastal location in the "English Riviera" alluring travellers with a bustling harbour, famous swaying Torbay palm trees and yellow sandy beaches. Renowned for its unique micro climate of mild winters and sunny summers. Torquay boasts a very lively nightlife with some excellent cafes, bars & restaurants.

There is so much to see and do for all ages and all tastes. Visitors can opt for a walk down one of the many beaches and coves or make their way down to the harbour to gaze at passing pleasure boats whilst enjoying traditional fish & chips. Amateur sleuths may like to investigate the biography of crime writer and Torquay-native Agatha Christie, details of whose life and work may be followed across the "Agatha Christie Mile" tour of informative plaques. Seasonal daily boat trips to Brixham or steam rail Journeys to Dartmouth make for a delightful excursion.

Whatever the weather, you I'll always find something to do or see.
