Just a peaceful walk or short drive away from the picturesque Torquay harbourside, as well as the charm and character of Wellswood, this fantastic pet friendly early Victorian holiday home comfortably accommodates 10 guests over a total of 5 bedrooms.

Complete with off road parking for a number of cars, this properties is the perfect choice for larger groups of guests that enjoy the style and character of boutique hotels, but prefer the privacy and convenience that self-catering breaks in Devon can offer. This family holiday home is just a ten minute walk away from the metropolitan buzz of Torquay town centre, complete with beautiful marina, subtropical gardens with swaying palm trees, elegant Georgian terraces, plus a myriad of bars and restaurants. Amazingly by contrast, on returning to the property you will be surprised at the peace and tranquillity of the outdoor terrace, being able to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or relaxing with a glass of wine as the sun goes down.

Rutland Lodge is an early Victorian building,built around 1840, that has been lovingly restored, and successfully marries the features and character of yester-year, with all the essential conveniences one can expect in modern day life. It offers large conservatory and lounge area, as well as 5 en-suite bedrooms. It is well equipped, comfortably furnished and presented to a high standard throughout and has a sunny terrace, boasting a relaxing ‘Hydropool’ hot tub (June 2019 onwards) and modern rattan furniture. The hot tub is a £30,000 Hydropool therapy spa with various programs & settings.  Although to an extent advertised as ‘self-cleaning’ we find that a daily clean of the filter & service ensures we can keep the chemical levels down to a minimum, whilst still keeping the water sparkling. The stone terrace with a long rattan table for 10, which gets the early morning and evening sun. Another table can be added to make 14.  There are rattan sun lounges under the huge gazebo next to the hot tub, which has a sun shade over as the terrace faces south.
