This homely, semi-detached cottage in Torquay sleeps five people in three bedrooms.

Little Acre is a comfortable, semi-detached cottage is a wonderful location in Torquay. With three bedrooms it can sleep up to five people. There's also a family bathroom, a ground floor cloakroom and a kitchen with dining area, along with a sitting room with gas fire. Outside, there is off road parking for one car plus a courtyard garden with furniture. Little Acre is within very easy reach of many attractions and is a wonderful choice for friends and families seeking the beauty of the English Riviera.


The owners of this property have created a lovely space, in a great location that has everything you could want for a brilliant week away. The house is well equipped with everything you'll need for self-catering, and it is walking distance to shops. There are some lovely places to eat just up the road. We were also able to walk to a good little park and two beaches with our young children. There was loads to keep the the children entertained within a walk or a short drive. We love the beaches in the area, they are really family friendly. We also made use of the local swimming pool, good for a rainy day.

This is the second time we stayed at Little Acre and will definitely be going again. The cottage is so ideally located. There are so many beautiful walks in every direction and a small parade of shops nearby for everything you need. Torquay town is nearby and we tend to walk in but a its only a short bus ride for the less able. The cottage is clean, quiet and very homely with all the usual features along with easy parking. I can`t recommend Little Acre highly enough as a great base for a family holiday.

We had a wonderful week in this cosy cottage that is in such a fabulous location. Within walking distance of the beach, town centre and a beautiful part of the south west coast path. The cottage is tucked away on a quiet side street and yet there are a variety of great shops right on your doorstep including a superb patisserie and traditional pub. Would love to return at some point in the not too distant future.

The cottage is situated in a quiet side road, within a two minute walk of a small parade of shops.This includes a supermarket for everyday needs, several tasteful coffee shops, a pub and a delicatessen, all providing excellent food and friendly service. The coastal path is within walking distance and the surrounding area provides walks ranging from cliff top or sea front, to a gentle after dinner stroll, all with spectacular views. Within easy driving distance are beaches, picturesque coastal towns and the tranquility of Dartmoor. Little Acre was perfect to return to after a busy day or simply to stay 'at home' to read and relax. We can?t wait to go back.

The cottage is obviously a very much loved home and the owners obviously care not only about their cottage, but also about their guests' holiday. There is everything there that you could possibly need, over and above the well equipped kitchen. We had a fantastic time and would thoroughly recommend this cottage to anyone. It really is a home from home. We would like to visit the area again for another holiday, and when we do we will want to come back to this cottage.
