The Old Toll House is situated on Torquay’s seafront opposite the promenade and Torre Abbey Sands Beach, adjacent to the new award winning Abbey Crescent development. The centre of Torquay is within a quarter of a mile as is the harbour and marina with its many amenities. Torquay is situated in the heart of the English Riviera and located in South Devon’s beautiful bay surrounded by scenic countryside and with stunning coastline. The area is well connected with the recently completed South Devon link road (A380) connecting Torbay to Exeter and the M5 motorway network. Torbay is also connected by a rail network to Exeter.
The recent completion of the Abbey Sands development has demonstrated the popularity of this area of the seafront with visitors and locals frequenting the many new bars and restaurants giving the whole area a cosmopolitan and continental feel. Other nearby occupiers include Bistro Pierre, Visto Lounge, Coco Lounge, Las Iguanas and Pier Point.
A handsome Grade II Listed stone building originally used by local boatmen and the council’s gardener, believed to date to back to circa 1840. The property is owned by Torbay Council and managed by the TDA who have drawn up plans for two impressive schemes to utilise the building as a restaurant/bar/café with further extensions to the rear and side of the original property, creating up to 3,100 square feet of commercial space. The plans involve a mixed scheme of modern and traditional architecture with seating on two levels and an open-air terrace with sea views to the front of the first-floor area.
