Reviews of Start Way

What a lovely house in an ideal spot, a few minutes walk to the local beach and the local restaurant. Torcross is a small village that is a great base for visiting Dartmouth and Brixham in one direction, and Salcombe, Totnes and Bigbury on Sea in the other. Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the scenery was just stunning. We were so lucky with the weather and delighted to come home each evening to the cottage, it was warm, comfortable and very practical. It had everything we wanted or needed. Loved that it had a family bathroom with a bath for the children and an en suite shower room on the top floor. Great views from the upstairs windows. Thank you. Hope to be back soon!
Just back from a wonderful week at Start Way. The house has everything you need, a real home from home. The beach at Torcross is great for a walk and explore with plenty of rock pools. We loved Stokeley Farm Shop, which is a short walk up the road, especially for wood fired pizzas and some locally brewed beer. The house was a great base and we have had an amazing week!
Really enjoyed the stay, great location both for the beach and the pub and a couple of cafe's. Log-burner regularly used, although the place was pretty warm anyway. Great sized property for 2 to 5 people, kitchen well equipped and the beds comfy. Would definitely recommend a stay, nice and cosy and enjoyed the week.
