For a relaxing getaway with all the conveniences of Torquay town centre within easy reach, Laurel Cottage provides the perfect destination. This cosy retreat is an annexe attached to 'The Laurels', a period property with buckets of charm and character having originally built in 1875 and was purchased by the Holy Trinity church as a memorial to one of their ministers.
Downstairs the cottage has a beautifully bright open plan living and dining area with an ornamental fireplace, two sofas and a flatscreen TV, a wonderful space where you can make yourself at home. From here you can walk through to the modern kitchen and whip up a culinary delight if you don’t feel like venturing out. Upstairs, you’ll find two relaxing bedrooms, one a double and the other with twin beds.
Outside, Laurel Cottage has a private and enclosed courtyard furnished with a patio table and chairs. On a summers day, this little suntrap is the perfect area to sit and enjoy the warm weather with a glass of wine or a spot of lunch.
When you do feel like exploring the local area, the town centre is a short downhill walk away with a range of shops, trendy bars and excellent restaurants. For a day at the beach, both Torre Abbey Sands and Meadfoot are nearby or if you fancy a day out, Torquay is home to a variety of attractions including Living Coasts, the Babbacombe Model Village and Kents Cavern prehistoric caves, with the regular 15 minute ferry service from the harbourside in Torquay to Brixham a delightful way to travel the bay in style.
