‘Rutland Lodge & Wellswood Mews’ is ideally located a short drive or peaceful walk away from the vibrant town centre of Torquay, as well as the charm and character of Wellswood. This pet friendly property combines a traditional early Victorian holiday home with a newly renovated modern Mews comfortably accommodating 14 guests over a total of 7 bedrooms.

It has a large conservatory and lounge area, as well as 5 en-suite bedrooms. The second, a modern cottage-style new build, sits across the courtyard, and contrasts the history of the main building, offering fully independent accommodation with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and lounge.
