The Observatory is a luxury holiday apartment offering stunning views out towards Shaldon across the Teign estuary from its private, south facing balcony. This beautiful apartment provides the perfect base to explore the popular resort of Teignmouth and the surrounding areas of Shaldon, Torquay, Paignton, Dartmouth, Exeter and Totnes. Located on the 4th floor this luxury 2-bedroom apartment has a spacious open plan lounge / kitchen diner and private allocated parking for 1 vehicle.

Exceptional attention to detail has been given to this property. The owners of The Observatory wish you to have a luxurious and relaxing stay and have gone out of their way to provide additional special touches such as waffle bathrobes, beach towels and ‘Make a Difference’ toiletries, 400 thread Egyptian cotton bedding, Nespresso coffee machine and a ‘Nauticalia’ telescope to enjoy the views.

There are a range of excellent beaches within a short walk. The popular 'Back Beach' is less than a 5-minute walk away, and with bustling bars, restaurant, cafes, shops and pubs, it's the ideal place to relax and enjoy the Devon weather. There are many coastal and countryside walks nearby, and the infamous Dartmoor is a 30 minute drive.

Teignmouth and nearby Shaldon, offer a range of local amenities including pubs, restaurants, shops and supermarkets. The larger towns of Torquay & Newton Abbot are approximately 9 miles away or a 15 minute drive. The main railway line in Teignmouth is just a 10 minute walk from Grand Banks and the M5 to Exeter is also within 15 minutes reach.

With all this on your doorstep, the opportunities for a luxurious, relaxed, outdoor lifestyle are limitless.

Grand Banks is located next to a west coast railway line so there is some noise from the trains during the day but the trains don’t run overnight. For stream train enthusiasts this is a great location for watching the Devon’s steam trains that regularly pass through Teignmouth during the spring and summer seasons.
