South Devon is really a beautiful location and Sunnyview has an amazing position in the coastal village of Torcross, with 3miles of beach on your doorstep. There is so much to explore in this magnificent area. The house is really unique, giving guests a different experience to your usual accommodation. It's cosy and compact with some clever design features to make creative use of the space. Views are stunning and lighting at night give a great ambience. It's definitely a special little place
It is a great place for one or two people as it is cosy, being more like a studio upstairs and small kitchen, bathroom downstairs. So don't expect loads of room and storage space, but its got all you need in a small house for a short break. The bed is custom made, really comfy and fitted into one corner of the room, so access from just one side. Sofa for chilling and breakfast bar for eating, reading/working and gazing out at the views. A small patio by the frontdoor with table and chairs and chiminea is great spot for morning sun over breakfast or having an evening drink as you watch the sunset over the hills. There is also a raised garden above the house in the hill which gives an even better view over the village, sea and lake. Most people eat out a lot when they are here as there are some brilliant eateries around, many of which can be reached by taking a nice walk. You can also stay in and cook or bbq on the chiminea, although there is no oven. The bathroom has a shower, and be aware that the stairs are steep. The house feels and has the size of a boat, which adds to the quirky character of the place. There is no direct parking outside the house but only 30m away is a free village parking area. A parking permit is provided in case the free spaces are taken.

Outside patio area by the entrance. Raised driftwood garden up behind the house on the hillside gives a great view. Don't forget the beach is only 30m away so can pop there to eat or have a drink on the beach (its peddle so no worries for sand getting everywhere!). Its great to be able to have a brisk refreshing swim then walk up the road and straight into a hot shower! Walking or running, the you are in for a treat as the infamous and spectacular South-West coast path runs by house.

There is challenging cycling and mountain biking and horse riding, both nearby or even better up on Dartmoor.

The house belongs to Will (who had great fun making it, the interior at least) and loves the area but works abroad. He hopes that people come and enjoy the place. You'd be surprised how fun such a small place can be. The price is pitched as quite affordable compared to most other equivalent house rentals in the area and particular in such a great location. Hopefully is bit more accessible to solo travelers or people on a tighter budget. Due to the layout of the house, it is unfortunately not suitable for guests with mobility disability and small children.
I have been looking after Sunnyview for several years and previously I owned and ran a B&B in the village as well. I have lived with my family in Torcross for many years and it is still an amazing place to spend time. I try and keep Sunnyview very clean and well maintained so guests expectations are met, and hopefully surpassed. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks
