Fantastic apartment with every facility you could possibly want. The owners made us very welcome and checked up that all was ok halfway through the week. We were helped to unload and load the car again on departure which was very welcome. The apartment is well situated for all the amenities of Torquay which were within easy reach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Mr O,

My husband and I had a fabulous 3 night break (October) at Ockenden House Apartment A. We arrived & were greeted by the owner who showed us around & let us know everything we needed to know about the apartment, very welcoming. The Ockenden had everything we needed for our break & more. Views were amazing from the terrace, bed exceedingly comfy, we also had tea coffee & milk when we arrived which was very much appreciated. Would highly recommend Ockenden House Apartment A & will definitely be returning. Thank you

Mrs B,

Lovely spacious modern appartement with a location close to the town centre and the marina. Equipped with everything you need to self cater. Close to local bus stops to Brixham, Totnes and Paignton. Hosts were really welcoming and helpful. Would definitely recommend the accommodation. Great location for exploring the local area.

Mrs B,

We stayed in Ockendon house for a week at the end of august and it was perfect! The flat was very clean and modern and had everything we needed and more- the decking is great to sit out on in the evening with the spotlights on. David and his wife (the owners) were both extremely friendly and happy to help with any questions or give advice on where to go or what to do- we even got a courtesy call halfway through to check we were all good and if we needed anything. The flat is about a 15/20 minute walk to the harbour and shops and restaurants down a few flights of steps and about a 5 minute taxi journey back if you don’t want to walk back up! It’s also about a 20 minute walk from the train station and even closer to bus stops to take you around to places like Paignton or Babbacombe. We had the best time away as the flat is lovely and is so close to things to do and cannot recommend it enough for a great little getaway! We’ll definitely be trying to return!

Miss C,

Dave and Linda were excellent hosts. There was good communication and they made sure we had everything we needed. The apartment was nicely decorated and was very clean. You could easily access the town by some near by steps which take you straight down to the sea front and shops. We always managed to find a parking spot down Warren road which was great.

Mrs L,

Lovely hugely helpful hosts who greeted us warmly on arrival and contacted us partway through the holiday to check all was going OK - and made themselves available should we need them. The place was spotless and very well kitted out. A great base for visiting the local area. Highly recommend a visit.

Mrs M,
