As the name suggests Seaway Lane extends from the seafront of Torquay and divides the popular area of Chelston from the picturesque Cockington Valley. Situated near the top of the lane in a quiet area this property is within easy reach of the many amenities and facilities that Torquay has to offer. Local shops can found a short distance away in Chelston on Old Mill Road and Walnut Road. Torquay railway station is also close by.
The medieval village of Cockington, noted in the Domesday Book, is a short stroll away, and surrounded by nearly 500 acres of parkland, lakes and woodland walks. The seafront and beach are equally as close, half a mile or so along the seafront is Torquay marina. The area is famous for year round water sports and renowned for its naturally mild climate and award winning beaches.
If travel and commuting are important to you, the Cathedral city of Exeter and the M5 motorway is now within 30 minutes drive thanks to the new South Devon Link Road.DESCRIPTION
