Torquay is located on the South Devon coast in the South West of the UK. It is part of an area which is often known as The English Riviera. The other towns that make up this area are Brixham and Paignton and include the communities of St Marychurch and Babbacombe. The English Riviera is focused around the very sheltered and beautiful Tor Bay and the area is also known by the shorthand term of Torbay.
The English Riviera is one of the country's largest and longest established resorts and Torquay in particular has successfully transformed into a short breaks destination. Thanks to a very mild micro climate, Torquay has a shorter and milder winter than most other parts of the UK. The area also benefits from a large number of attractions most of which stay open all year round.
The apartment is located in one of Torquay's grand old Victorian villas. It was originally built for a man who was a Member of Parliament for the area before it passed on to a colonial judge based in Calcutta, India who named the building Muntham after the Hindi word for "Gentle Breeze".
Now divided into apartments, the building retains much of its original charm and still has very evident grandeur inside and out whilst also being a comfortable and relaxing place to stay.
This ground floor apartment is formed from the original grand ground floor rooms of the building. Original plaster work is still visible and the rooms have the benefit of floor to ceiling bay windows. The apartment consists of a very large sitting room with floor to ceiling windows that overlook the Rose Garden at the side of the property. There is also a bedroom with a king sized bed ( five foot width) with luxury pocket sprung mattress. This also has large picture windows overlooking the Rose Garden. There is a bathroom with bath and shower over. This was completely refitted in february 2017. The apartment also has a well equipped kitchen with full sized electric eye level oven , ceramic hob, microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher and toaster. This was also completely refitted in February 2017.
We are also delighted to welcome well behaved dogs into this apartment. (We do make a charge of £15.00 per dog per visit) We ask that this is paid upon arrival at the property.

The apartments are situated in Wellswood which is one of the most desirable, leafy resdiential areas of Torquay. Just a short distance from the town centre and harbour it has a unique feel with lots of independent shops and traders hence it is often referred to as "Wellswood Village"
The centre of the village is Ilsham Road and this is just a five minute walk from The Muntham Apartments. Here visitors can find a pub, delicatessen, cafes, bistro, beauty spas, florist, newsagent, mini supermarket and much much more.
Just beyond this shopping area is the world famous Kent's Cavern which once upon a time was home to bears, tigers as well as northern Europe's earliest humans.
A short walk beyond the caves guests will find themselves at Meadfoot Bay where there are a number of beaches one of which has a beach cafe and a variety of water sports.
Within fifteen minutes it is also possible to walk to Babbacombe and Babacombe Downs with its spectacular views across Lyme Bay.
It is just a five minute walk to the nearest bus stop. From there it is possible to get to Torquay (about 5 minutes) and to destinations beyond such as Brixham, Paignton, Dartmouth, Teignmouth and Dawlish. Buses also go to Plymouth and Exeter.
From Easter through to the end of October boat services operate across the bay and link Torquay with Paignton and Brixham as well as Dartmouth.
The Dartmouth Steam Railway operates all year round ( on a reduced timetable in winter) and it is therefore possible to travel from Paignton to Dartmouth by steam train.
Taxis are plentiful in Torquay and the English Riviera and the rates are comparatively inexpensive compared with other parts of the country.

We have two resident miniature sausage dogs called Oscar and Hector. They are exceptionally friendly and easy going chaps who enjoy meeting new people and making new friends. They love other dogs.
For guests bringing dogs we ask that all flea and worm treatments and vaccinations are up to date. We request that dogs are not left unattended in the apartment. We can assist with dog sitting (subject to availability). The charge per pet per visit is £15 which we ask is paid upon arrival at the property.
We want all our guests to make the most of their time away and would only ask that in doing so, everyone has consideration and respect for the needs and interests of other people. In particular we would ask that guests are conscious of the impact of noise on other people and that the apartments are left as they are found.
We do not accept bookings from groups or parts of groups such as stag and hen parties. Smoking is not permitted anywhere inside the property. We are delighted to accept pets in our ground floor apartments (such as this one. Charges do apply)

From 2004 until March 2016 we ran the multi award winning Somerville in Torquay. In 2012 we also set up a holiday lettings business and have developed that business ever since. We took over the Muntham Apartments in April 2016 and have embarked upon a massive programme of improvement and refurbishment. Our passion is for high quality accommodation that is affordable.
