Torwood Gables is a very attractive conversion of an old Victorian primary school, conveniently situated in the harbour town of Torquay.

The cottage forms part of an old Victorian school sympathetically converted to retain many of the original features of the era with beautiful large arched windows and beams throughout. Accommodation is upside down with the living room and kitchen on the first floor, plus a mezzanine with a sofa bed whilst the main bedroom is on the ground floor.

Torquay has a fabulous sandy beach, harbour and promenade, perfect for a stroll. Goodrington Sands and Broadsands are close by, both offer great family days out. Goodrington Sands has a Seaside Award for safe swimming conditions and also has pedalo and paddle boat hire and windsurfing lessons.

This quirky cottage offers delightful accommodation for a couple or a family looking to stay in this popular seaside town. All amenities are on the doorstep including the harbour, cafes, shops, restaurants and of course the beaches.

Beautiful little house. Second bedroom a little awkward for my 6ft son to use.
