Bay View is an apartment situated in the Abbey Sands development, which has been designed by world class architect, Kay Elliott, and has become a premier address in Torquay. The beautiful design is influenced by the Art Deco style of the British seaside, with curving balconies and horizontal emphasis, resembling an ocean liner. With breathtaking views of Torbay and a location fronting the beach at Torre Abbey Sands, the development is close to the marina and the town centre with easy access to all that Torquay has to offer. Abbey Sands provides the opportunity for a luxurious holiday with accommodation combining the best of beachfront and urban locality.
The apartment is situated on the second floor but has level access from the car park. There is a balcony which runs the length of the apartment with access from both bedrooms and living room. With unrestricted views guests can simply relax and absorb the stunning panoramic views stretching along the coast. There is a lift which will take you down to restaurants and bars which are located on the ground floor as well as access to the beach just across the road. The apartment has been decorated and furnished to a 5* standard, with fibre optic broadband throughout, and is perfect for a family holiday, or a couple’s retreat.
There is so much to do in the area and, having a private parking space, you can leave the car as everything is on the doorstep. Take a boat from Torquay Marina across to Brixham for a great day out, or perhaps visit the Princess Theatre which has some amazing shows throughout the year. Living Coasts, where penguins roam freely, Babbacombe Model Village, and a step back in time at Bygones, are all just a few minutes’ walk away, and Kent’s Cavern is also worth a visit. Torquay is also the birthplace of the world-famous crime writer Agatha Christie, who wrote many of her novels at the Grand Hotel which can be viewed from the balcony. Many holidaymakers follow in her footsteps along the Agatha Christie Mile and discover what inspired her, or even visit her summer home, Greenaway. For those in search of some tranquillity, Cockington Country Park offers miles of woodland and parkland to explore.
This prime location in the English Riviera will provide the perfect view point for annual events including the Red Arrows, firework displays and sailing events throughout the year. Beyond Torquay, there are regular bus and train services to Plymouth and Exeter, with the train station only a 15-minute walk away. Take time to also visit iconic Dartmoor National Park and experience the raw natural beauty of Devon. Dartmouth, Salcombe, Paignton, Dartmoor, Exeter and Plymouth are all within easy reach by car. Paignton Zoo is only a short distance away and there are river and sea cruises, as well as steam train trips nearby. Beach 100 yards. Shop ¾ mile, pub and restaurant 20 yards.

All on the second floor (with lift access).
Open plan living space: With patio doors leading to balcony.
Living area: With Freeview Smart TV.
Dining area.

    Terrific apartment with great views & superb location. Would definitely stay here again. Only improvement would be some summer weight duvets. The apartment is warm and sadly the traffic noise at night is such that difficult to sleep with windows open- so a tog 10 is a bit beefy for August!

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for your review and we duly note the point regarding quilts, we will have some summer quilts put in the apartment which should make it more comfortable. Otherwise we are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again.

    First class in all respects. If I were to suggest any changes it would be on a very minor scale and purely down to particular needs. The only very minor point that I will mention is the slightly limited practical user information on a number of the exceptionally good pieces of equipment provided. I found searching through a huge pdf document on a 4 inch phone screen to find out how to turn on the superb washing machine a bit of a chore. The microwave/combi/grill/thingy was a bit of a challenge. These minor issues in no way affected our enjoyment and satisfaction and we have every intention of a return.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you appreciated the standard of furnishings. We do have a folder with instructions for all equipment which should have been in the drawer in the hallway with the welcome book so we will check to ensure it has not been removed. We certainly look forward to you visiting again and be assured should you have any issues during your stay you are able to contact the management agency who will rectify them without delay.
