This beautiful development of 33 one and two bedroom apartments is built on the site of the former Gleneagles Hotel which inspired John Cleese to write the classic sitcom ‘Fawlty Towers’. The building has been named Sachs Lodge in memory of the late Andrew Sachs, fondly remembered by many for his role as Manuel in the sitcom and who passed away in 2016.
As you would expect from a seaside resort the coast is never far away; the development enjoys views across the dramatic Lyme Bay and is also within a short walk of Ilsham Green a grassy expanse leading straight down to the sea and part of the South West Coast Foot Path.
The development is well-located for the desirable Wellswood Village which has an excellent selection of local shops and amenities including a Post Office, a patisserie, a pharmacy, a wine bar and a deli, beauticians and hairdressers.
The marina, seafront and town centre are just a short distance away for shopping and entertainment. There are a number of award-winning restaurants and gastro pubs as well as the exclusive department store Hoopers which offers four floors of fashion and lifestyle ranges.
On the outskirts of Torquay there are two out-of-town shopping centres with high street favourites Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s and Next as well as a choice of cafés and food outlets and ample free parking.
