Good afternoon, Welcome To The Muntham Apartments in Torquay
As the end of 2020 draws nearer, it is becoming increasingly apparent that we will have to live with Covid 19 for some time yet. Our experience of the very busy summer months is that this can be done quite safely by taking a few sensible precautions that don't have to ruin a relaxing break away.
Visit Britain has assessed our Covid protection measures and given us accreditation. Also, in recognition of our guests' reasonable concerns our cancellation policy is being adapted to the current circumstances and in case there is a return to travel restrictions etc. Click here for more details about this and to see how we are adapting to life with Covid.
The Muntham Luxury Apartments and Town House are to be found in Wellswood, a leafy residential part of Torquay which is just a short distance from Torquay harbour and town centre.
As a result of their proximity to it, the apartments are ideally placed for guests to take full advantage of all that "Wellswood Village" has to offer. This focal point of the neighbourhood includes a patisserie, a delicatessen, beauty salons, hair salons, cafes, a wine bar, a pub a newsagent and a mini supermarket. For more details of our Wellswood neighbourhood, please click here.
The apartments also make a super base from which to explore The English Riviera. The World renowned 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 closeness of key bus routes (a five minute walk from the apartments ) 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 afield and it is possible to travel as far as Teignmouth and Dawlish in one direction and Paignton and Brixham in another without changing buses. It is even possible to travel as far as Exeter and Plymouth.
Equally, guests can access key English Riviera attractions such as Paignton Zoo, Living Coasts, Torquay Musuem, The National Trust properties of Coleton Fishacre, Greenway and Compton Castle and Torre Abbey in less than half an hour by car.
A great number of people add 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 on Torquay seafront and The Little Theatre in Meadfoot can be reached in less than ten minutes.
It is a short walk down to St Matthias' Church from the apartments which makes them 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 visitors who crave space and luxury we have The Town House which is a three bedroom, two bathroom town house style property arranged over three floors. It comes with its own private Hot Tub situated on a sunny terrace in its own private garden. 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 be able to spread out and not feel on top of each other. 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.
One of the key features of the apartments is their extensive mature gardens which amount to almost one acre. This means that The Muntham Apartments are truly a peaceful and idyllic place for a break away by the sea.
The apartments have their own parking and there are enough spaces for all guests.
