Welcome To The Muntham Apartments in Torquay
The Muntham Luxury Apartments are situated in Wellswood, a leafy residential area of Torquay, just a short distance from Torquay harbour and town centre. Consequently, the apartments are ideally placed for guests to take full advantage of all that "Wellswood Village" has to offer. This includes a patisserie, a delicatessen, beauty salons, hair salons, cafes, a wine bar, a pub a newsagent and a mini supermarket.

The apartments are also a super base from which to explore The English Riviera. The World famous Kent's Cavern is but a ten to fifteen minute stroll away, the nearest beach is about twelve minutes away on foot and the stunning Walls Hill cliff top area (site of an Iron Age Fort) is about a fifteen minute walk. The close proximity to key bus routes (a five minute walk ) also means that guests can leave their car behind in the car park and enjoy a car free break. Buses to and from Torquay harbour and town centre take about five minutes whilst those to Babbacombe and St Marychurch also take five and ten minutes respectively. Some buses go further and it is possible to travel as far as Teignmouth and Dawlish in one direction and Paignton and Brixham in another without changing buses. Equally guests can access English Riviera attractions such as Paignton Zoo, The National Trust properties of Coleton Fishacre, Greenway and Compton Castle and Torre Abbey in less than half an hour by car.
Many visitors enjoy a visit to the theatre during their stay in the area and The Muntham Apartments are ideally placed for theatre breaks. The Babbacombe Theatre is a five minute car or taxi journey away whilst The Princess Theatre and The Little Theatre can be reached in less than ten minutes.
St Matthias' Church is a short walk from the apartments and so is well placed for guests attending special events such as weddings or christenings.
The Muntham Apartments themselves have been created within one of Torquay's finest Victorian villas. originally built for a man who became one of Torquay's most notable members of Parliament , it went on to be the home of a former Lord Chief Justice of Calcutta. it was he who named it "Muntham" which apparently meant "gentle breeze" in Hindi.
Today we are able to offer visitors two wonderfully spacious one bedroom apartments on the ground floor, two cosy one bedroom apartments on the first floor and two first floor studio apartments. For those whoe really love space and luxury we have "The Townhouse" which is a three bedroom, two bathroom town house style property arranged over three floors. On the lower level is a large family kitchen with direct access onto the gardens, whilst on the floor above is large amounts of living space which is ideal for families who really like to spread themselves out. All apartments have free wifi and use of our communal laundry room. We are delighted to welcome pets in our ground floor apartments and in The Townhouse.
A particular feature of the apartments is their extensive grounds which amount to almost one acre. This means that The Muntham Apartments are truly a peaceful and idyllic place fro a break away by the sea.
The apartments have their own parking and there are enough spaces for all guests.
