Introduction:

Vane Tower Penthouse Apartment is a luxury two-bedroom self-catering apartment which sleeps four people and forms the top floor and tower of a beautiful Grade II listed Italianate building with panoramic views over Torbay. Torquay is built on seven hills and Vane Tower is at the top of Vane Hill, in the Harbour Conservation Area. This apartment was renovated in Summer 2018 and finished in November 2018.

Because the property is listed it has not been possible to make structural changes that would make the apartment more accessible to all. Unfortunately, this makes it unsuitable for children under the age of five, people who have limited mobility or those who find it difficult to climb stairs.

Please feel free to contact the owners Katie and Steve Huxley, who live in the main building below the apartment, should you have any questions. We want your visit to be as enjoyable and relaxing as possible.
