Ilsham Marine Drive follows the contour of the hillside from Meadfoot Beach to Wellswood and forms part of the South West Coastal footpath. The delightful community of Wellswood offers a range of boutique shops and restaurants, schooling and the parish Church of St Matthias.

Torquay is a typical seaside town offering seaside living at its best with sheltered sailing waters, a beautiful coastline and clean beaches. It also benefits from a number of Grammar Schools offering 'outstanding' education. The university city of Exeter is approximately 23 miles distant, offering an international airport and access to the M5 network.
