St Anns is a detached cottage-style, three bedroom house of charming charater in the beautiful area of St Marychurch in Babbacombe/Torquay. The cottage is within easy walking distance of shops, bars, restaurants and beaches. Ideal choice for family holidays, as there are plenty of facilities and activities in the area for children, including Babbacombe Model Village, which is just around the corner.Our spacious holiday cottage sleeps 6 in three bedrooms, (one double, one twin and one room with bunk beds). The bunk beds are more suitable for children, rather than adults. The house also boasts a private drive (parking available for 2 cars) and sun trap landscaped gardens. To the rear, the cottage has views over the Petit Tor Downs, Torquay Golf Course and Watcombe.The closest beach is Oddicombe, a 14 year consecutive winner of the Blue Flag Award and designated Euro Beach. If you choose to take the Cliff Railway, Oddicombe is a 15 minute walk or if you prefer the path Oddicombe and adjoining Babbacombe are a 20 minute walk. Other beaches at circa 15 minutes are Watcombe and Whitsand.Torquay is a 4 hour drive from London (or less if you speed!)

Lead guest should be 25 years or older.  No groups of all males or all females.  Families only.

The exterior of the house was re-painted in July 2020.

Really nice cottage, bedrooms particularly spacious there was plenty of room for us all. The kitchen was well equipt with more than enough bits and pieces and the welcome supplies were really useful.

Response from Manager

Thank you very much for your positive review. When we bought the house we chose it particularly as we found it spacious and perfectly located for all the amenities including sandy beaches. It is interesting that you mention the bathroom, as we are having it refurbished in January - not long to go now!
