Introduction

Our flats are a purpose built block of flats which was built in 1962 with access to the rear of the property.

The nearest bus stop is outside to the left of the flats in the Winston Churchill Grounds overlooking to sea. 

The nearest train station Paignton is 5 miles away; there are taxis at the station or buses [No. 12] every 12 minutes into Brixham.   

The nearest Airport is Exeter which is 45 miles away; there are taxis at the airport or buses into Exeter and then transfer to bus into Brixham.

It is also possible to travel by boat from Torquay to Brixham on the Western Lady ferry, which runs every hour in the main holiday season.  

Car Parking Facilities

We have our own private car park on three levels, with security lighting at night.

                             At the front spaces for five cars

                             At the rear spaces for nineteen cars.

The lower rear car park has level access to the reception office. Luggage can be unloaded here.

Access to the rear car park is up the slop on the east side of the building.

There are no fixed spaces, your can park where ever you like. There is only one car parking space per flat.

Extra spaces can be purchased in the Marina Multi-storey car park two minutes walk away.

Pedestrian Access

Access to the premises from the public road is by our private drive,

sloping up to our private car parks.

The slope is easily managed by a person in normal health but does present some

difficulty for a person in a wheel chair. They will need two person pushing assistance.

It is possible to hire electric wheelchairs from a local supplier. We can organise this for you.

There is a small slope from the lower level rear car park up the upper level car park.
