Description

Bay Fort Mansions is a lovely Victorian villa sympathetically converted into holiday accommodation overlooking Torquay Marina, Torre Sands and the sea.

Cockington apartment benefits from this south facing location with panoramic views over Torquay and across the bay to Paignton and Brixham.

After an extensive period of restoration, Royal Terrace Gardens (Rock Walk) along Torquay Seafront is now fully open to the public. Day or night, visitors will be rewarded with unrivalled panoramic sea views from this striking natural landmark. Gaze down on the vibrant harbour life, across the Bay towards Paignton and Brixham or further inland as far afield as Dartmoor on a clear day. The newest attraction to the English Riviera will provide the perfect viewpoint for annual events including the Red Arrows, firework displays and sailing events throughout the year.

Cockington, Bay Fort Mansions

I travel nationwide involved in photography for hotel groups and my business, with my dog. Loved the little touches like a few tea bags etc to get started until I could get to the shops! I will be returning regularly to this apartment one of the best we have stayed in! Thanks

Cockington, Bay Fort Mansions

This holiday was probably our last 'family' holiday as our twin boys turned 18 whilst we were there. It was the best holiday we have had made all the more enjoyable by the fact that we were able to take our 15 month old dog with us into the apartment. Amazing location, fantastic views, lovely gardens - a trip down memory lane for us visiting our beloved Cockington Court and lovely family meals at the Drum Inn, Cockington. Thank you Blue Chip Holidays as this was booked very last minute. Carolyn Clare, Derbyshire.

Cockington, Bay Fort Mansions

There is the most spectacular view over the bay. The flat is in a good location, within walking distance of shops, cinema, ferries and harbour but peaceful at night. We had a lovely holiday.

My partner and I stayed at Bay Fort Mansions last year and decided to stay there again due to the great location. Cockington is a great sized apartment and tastefully furnished. Very clean.The views overlooking the sea are spectacular. I would definitely recommend this apartment.

Wonderful view across the bay!

The flat is actually larger than we anticipated and the view from the living-room is simply amazing. If you don't need a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, this flat is pretty close to perfect for a stay in Torquay. The only downside is that you have to climb up the hill by either approximately 250 steps or walk up along the road, which isn't too bad.

Views to die for!

We've just returned from a lovely 3-night stay in Torquay. We stayed at Cockington (Apartment 7) of Bay Fort Mansions and were very comfortable. My travel party consisted of myself, my husband and our little Jack Russell, Edie. The most amazing aspect of this apartment was the view from the living room, which looked out to the harbour and bay at Torquay. We were also blessed with gorgeous weather which made the view even more delectable. The apartment itself is just as depicted in the photographs, although the dining table was a little more worn than it appeared. Nevertheless, all necessary equipment was provided - particularly in the kitchen, so eating in was easily achieved. The bedroom was very comfortable and we slept very well while we were there. The location of the apartment is a feature in itself. You are very well placed to explore the harbour and a drive out to Paignton and Brixham are easily undertaken. While closer to home you can drive to Cockington and spend a wonderful few hours. There are also some very good restaurants nearby - certainly worth exploring! I would recommend this apartment - and it's dog friendly too!

Happy days in Torquay.....

For the first time in 22 years, my wife and I went on holiday without any of our 3 children (aged 22, 20 and 18) and took ourselves and our spaniel Charlie) away to Torquay. We stayed at "Cockington" a self-contained flat that is part of the Blue Chip Holidays company's Bay Fort Mansions building high above Torquay. The flat was excellent, being clean and comfortable, well equipped (kitchenette, bath / shower, double bedroom and living room) and being plenty big enough for the 3 of us (including the dog). The best feature however was the location. We had panoramic views across the whole of Torbay towards Paignton and Brixham and yet Torquay itself was just a 10 minute easy walk down through the private mansions garden onto the public Queens Gardens walkway above the Torquay Palace Theatre and Torquay harbour. We even managed to find free on road parking outside the Fort Bay mansions building for the whole of our stay. Highly recommended. Ian Fletcher
