Retirement Living Testimonials
June Wakeling

June Wakeling

Sachs Lodge, Torquay

“I have a ground floor apartment with my own patio looking out onto the woods and straight on down to the sea. I love the sense of air and space, and I’m only a two minute walk from the village shops which is very convenient. It means I can easily get out for a walk every day and keep myself fit!”

Life in Torquay

Named Sachs Lodge in memory of the late Andrew Sachs, the fondly remembered actor who starred as Manuel in the sitcom ‘Fawlty Towers, these homes are built on the site of the former Gleneagles Hotel, the original inspiration behind the programme. This is a great location for retirement properties, due to the stunning views, with Torquay itself an ideal place to call home.

  • As you would expect from a seaside resort the coast is never far away, the development enjoys views across the dramatic Lyme Bay.
  • It's 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.
