***CALL ABSOLUTE SALES AND LETTINGS FOR FOR FURTHER DETAILS OR TO ARRANGE A VIEWING***This beautiful development of 33 one and two bedroom apartments is built on the site of the former Gleneagles Hotel which inspired John Cleese to write the classic sitcom ‘Fawlty Towers’. The building has been named Sachs Lodge in memory of the late Andrew Sachs, fondly remembered by many for his role as Manuel in the sitcom and who passed away in 2016.

As you would expect from a seaside resort the coast is never far away; the development enjoys views across the dramatic Lyme Bay and is also 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.  On the outskirts of Torquay there are two out-of-town shopping centres with high street favourites Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s and Next as well as a choice of cafés and food outlets and ample free parking.

Even the smallest detail is considered and typically our developments have the following general specification:

Car Parking
There is no charge for parking but spaces are limited in our retirement developments and available on a 'first come, first served' basis. Visitors should only park if there are specially allocated visitors' spaces. If none are available then visitors may only pick up or drop off Owners and must park off site.

Guest Suite
A Guest Suite is provided for visiting relatives or friends and a charge is made for its use. Reservations are arranged via your Lodge Manager. Priority may be given to a visitor helping a sick Owner.

Owner's Lounge & Coffee Bar
The Owners' Lounge and coffee bar is for the use of all Owners as a casual meeting place or for an organised event. It is also available for private hire by Owners, on payment of a fee which is placed in the Lodge / Development's trust account. Advance notice must be given to the Lodge Manager in order to make a booking.

Landscaped Garden
Each development is individually designed to blend comfortably with neighbouring properties. A great deal of importance is placed on the communal gardens, providing a welcome retreat for you, your family and friends. Sachs Lodge benefits from beautiful landscaped gardens surrounded by mature trees and two separate and secluded patio seating areas - ideal for enjoying your morning coffee in the summer months!
