The Lookout (ref 30587) and The Garden Flat (ref 29650) are both tastefully decorated apartments situated peacefully off the beaten track in an acre of hilltop gardens with open views across the valley to the sea. They are attached to the owner’s home but offer privacy and great views. A large shared decking area overlooks Ilsham Valley, and each property has its own garden furniture, ideal for cream teas, enjoying a glass of wine or just relaxing and taking in the view.
The Garden Flat enjoys a private, covered patio area close to a large pond, and there is plenty of outside space to enjoy, along with a large area of the garden is enclosed which allows pets to roam freely.

Tucked away on the boundary of Lincombe Woods, you are within walking distance of Wellswood village shops, wooded walks, meadows and beaches. Meadfoot Beach is closest and arguably Torbay’s finest. With its southerly outlook, clean blue waters and views, it deserves its reputation as one of the region’s best.
Wellswood village is a 10-minute wooded walk away, and is one of the most charming areas of Torquay. Everything you need for day to day living is here including a pub, supermarket, ATM, restaurants, cafés, pharmacy, post office, patisserie, salons, barber, wine bar and village pantry amongst others.
The local dog-friendly pub is known for its excellent food, sunny beer garden and friendly atmosphere. The village is also the birthplace of crime writer Agatha Christie and was home of the Gleneagles Hotel, which inspired John Cleese’s ’Fawlty Towers’. Also offering a cosy, warm winter let, many guests return to enjoy an off season ‘English Riviera’ winter break. The apartments are a 5-minute drive to the marina, harbour and main Torquay shopping areas. Beach ¾ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    The Lookout is a wonderful place to enjoy a relaxing holiday. The views are beautiful and the location was perfect for us. We were made welcome and received a bottle of wine as a welcome gift and were provided with things that made our dog more comfortable, ie. dog blanket, toy and dog biscuits. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and hope to return in the future!!

    This is a lovely place, you will fall in love with the view, the wildlife on your doorstep. Not many downsides, local shops 10 minute walk, but is steep hills and steps. Many places not to far by car, so or public transport.

    We stayed at The Lookout for Christmas and loved it. When we arrived, we found our sitting room decorated with a Christmas tree and other festive decorations, plus a Christmas 'hamper' of wine, Xmas crackers, shortbread and chocolate. There were even dog treats for our furry friends. This was a lovely touch. The accommodation itself is delightful. Very spacious, clean and tastefully decorated/furnished, with the most spectacular views of the sea from both the sitting room and bedroom. There are also big patio doors onto a large decking area, plus a lovely, meandering garden (again, with fabulous views). From the garden there's a path down to a road and from there a woodland walk down to the beach. The owners are very welcoming and friendly to both humans and dogs and provide details of some great dog walks in the area. A really special place and I'm sure we'll be back!

    We were surprised by the location of it was breath taking just as it was shown on line. I have found some places. Give you a false impression, not so at the Lookout, really first class accommodation and service, the cottage is very spacious not what you expect with the description cottage we would recommend this to all our family and friends. It is certainly somewhere we will be visiting again
