One short break in our Superb Three-Star Devon Holiday Bungalow
(Enjoys a quiet location on the edge of Paignton, with easy access to Countryside, all Beaches and to Torquay, Dartmouth, Totnes &c.)
"Has everything you could wish for .... Would come again without hesitation" (J. Wilkinson, Oct 2013)
"Excellent value, great location, lovely place. Had a very good time" (May 2012)
"... very comfortable, peaceful and homely.... It is certainly one of the best holiday homes we have visited" (June 2011)
"A major part of our great holiday was to have such a lovely place to stay. You catered for our every need ..." (May 2011)
Due to someone booking a long weekend at full price, we are left with two part weeks that we are now able to offer at bargain prices. These are:
Saturday 27 Sept to Friday 3 October - 6 nights for only £220
Monday 6 October to Saturday 11 October - 5 nights for only £195
We will also consider shorter holidays within the available dates (minimum 3 nights). These would be charged at £55 for the first night plus £35 for each subsequent night.
Our bungalow has two bedrooms and accommodates up to four adults and two infants (in a wooden cot and travel cot). It is spacious, bright and attractive and has been modernised throughout for holiday letting. It is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac near Paignton Zoo, within easy walking distance of open parkland, three supermarkets, two pubs, and buses to all Paignton beaches, to Torquay, Plymouth, Totnes and all the amenities of South Devon. It lies less than two miles from the coast and two miles from the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and enjoys excellent transport links to all areas. On-street parking is always available for wider vehicles, although there is space for up to two medium size cars in the driveway.
**Special consideration is given to visitors with disabilities. Please ask for our Access Statement, or call to discuss your requirements.
As well as some of the UK's very best beaches and coastal walks, the area offers many interesting places to go and see, especially for families. See for example:
Whatever the season, you can visit Paignton Zoo, Cockington Manor and craft studios, ancient Kent's Cavern or the Babbacombe model village, or Torre Abbey, Torquay Museum, Exeter Cathedral, or the Plymouth Aquarium, or shops in Plymouth or Exeter. Or you can take the Paignton to Kingswear steam railway, and take the passenger ferry to explore historic Dartmouth. Or you can drive up to Dartmoor, and enjoy the spectacular views on all sides from the comfort of your car. Locally, there are innumerable pubs and restaurants.
The bungalow is warm and comfortable, having the benefit of gas-fired central heating and double-glazing. It has a large lounge/dining room, with a sofa-bed for up to two, and two small armchairs, a dining table with four chairs, a high chair, a Freeview LCD TV, DVD player, a selection of holiday reading and holiday guides. The bungalow also has the benefit of Wireless Internet. Everything is included in the price - there will be nothing more to pay !
The master bedroom has a large wardrobe, chest of drawers, and a wooden cot. A second large travel cot is available on request. The second bedroom has a full suite of bedroom furniture and two full-size single beds.
The kitchen has a dishwasher, cooker, washing machine, microwave, fridge/freezer, and a full range of modern appliances. There is an airer for use in the bathroom, an airing cupboard in the hall, and a washing line for the garden. The bathroom has a shaving point, shower, bath, fan &c. Everything is powered by solar energy (not that you could tell the difference).
Leading off the kitchen is a small conservatory, looking onto an attractive rear garden. It is supplied with chairs and table, and guests tell us they like having their breakfasts here. The garden enjoys views to woodland and open countryside, which lies just ten minutes walk away.
Pillows, duvets and/or blankets are provided for the beds. We do not usually supply sheets, duvet covers, pillow-cases, towels, so you will need to bring your own. Should this prove difficult (for example, because your are visiting from overseas), then we will gladly supply a full set of bed-linen plus two towels per person, and make the beds ready for an additional charge of £12 per person. We do not provide bedding for the cots and the sofa-bed, so if you wish to use them, you will need to bring your own.
1) No smokers - this is very strictly applied
2) No animals (sorry, I am very allergic to them, even if they are only small)
1. First please phone us first to confirm availability on 01803 782689 . (The bungalow is advertised elsewhere at a higher price, so its important to check to avoid double-booking.)
2. If the week or short break you require is available, we will reserve it for you, and you will then have 48 hours in which to pay the full amount, either using Paypal or bank transfer.
3. We will then phone you so we can draft our standard contract which we will email to you to sign, and send back as a JPEG scan, or via the post.
4. When we have received a signed copy of the contract, we will arrange to send you a set of keys.
If you are booking more than six weeks prior to commencement of your holiday, then we will accept a non-refundable deposit of £60. The full amount must be paid at least six weeks prior to the commencement of your holiday.
Your payments are not refundable, so we recommend taking out holiday cancellation insurance. This typically costs 10% of the price of your holiday, see for instance: J.L. Morris (Tel.: 01202 642840) or http://www.jlmorris.co.uk/insurance/index.php. Should any member of your party have an ongoing medical condition, then we recommend http://free-spirit.com/
