Description

You’ll find Protea Cottage set in the grounds of Protea House, just a ten minute stroll away from Torquay’s seafront. With spacious rooms and a classic, welcoming décor throughout, Protea Cottage is perfect for that South Devon break.

With a classic appearance and original features such as the fireplace, the living room makes it all too easy to while away an hour or two with your feet up in between adventures. Period furniture gives the room a nostalgic character, and the bookcase means bookworms will have plenty of opportunity to wind down with a book during their stay.

The master bedroom upstairs enjoys open views out to sea, so it’s a peaceful spot to forget the rest of the world after a long day enjoying the nearby beach. The twin bedroom downstairs includes little touches such as a spacious en suite bathroom complete with en suite a large corner bath, and this gives it an elegant feel that’s in keeping with the rest of the house.

Torquay’s home to some of South Devon’s best-loved attractions, and many of them are within walking distance from this home from home. Living Coasts, Torre Abbey Sands and the Princess Theatre are all within easy reach of Protea Cottage, and a little further afield you’ll find Kents Cavern, Babbacombe Model Village and Bygones.

 Protea Cottage is attached to Protea House.

Protea Cottage

The property was very spacious, the welcome was very good, more items were in the property than we thought for example tea towels, washing up liquid, it was nice that we didn't need to take any towels except for beach towels, the kitchen was very well stocked not just four of everything which was great as we have family in the area and they were able to visit and have a meal with us without us using bought paper plates. The property this year was really good value for money even with my children moaning about sheets and blankets rather than the duvets at home.

Protea Cottage

A very enjoyable stay. The accommodation is very spacious, extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. Good location, ideal for Torquay, nice walk in to town. Cockington also a short walk away which is beautiful. Would defiantly recommend.

Lovely little holiday cottage

Our previous stay at a Blue Chip property was a new apartment and very different to this property. Although the décor is dated, its very in-keeping with the property, its quaint and homely and more importantly very clean. My daughters loved the giant pink bath in their own bathroom. The sea is just in view from the upstairs bedroom and a gentle stroll away, just down the hill is Torquay train station. Cockington Village is also just a little stroll down the hill and so pretty. We left the car most days and explored by foot. Amenities are not too far away, our 4 year old could manage the walk. In summary we hope to return soon.

Protea Cottage - Torquay

Just back from a wonderful holiday in Torquay. Weather was great - Area just what we wanted but most of all the accommodation was excellent. Everything was perfect at the cottage. We have stayed in the Coach House previously, and that was just as good. Everything we have to say is nothing but excellent. This goes for the Blue Chip booking staff - nothing was too much trouble, in fact they go out of there way to help you in every way possible. We would recommend holidaying through Blue Chip Holidays every time. Thank you for making our holiday wonderful.

Good Holiday needed more local Information

Lovely holiday apartment good location only thing missing was information relating to refuse/recycling information and local area information also would have been nice to have a visitor's book available also a few DVDs as only videos on site and no video player. Other than that great stay.
