Could someone please give me a brief description to find the DIY store/parking for Ansteys cove i.e. what road is it on etc. It's been quite a few years since i last went and I don't trust my memory to find it...
Pretty much a piece of piss if you can find Babbacombe main street (called Babbacombe road). Drive towards Torquay along this road and the DIY store is on your left; it's pretty obvious as it's the only large store on the road.
Getting onto Babbacombe high street is more convoluted. Heading south on the main road (A380) you'll reach a set of traffic lights with a Benson's beds on your left. Turn left here and the roads will get you into Babbacombe eventually!
In reply to R Simpson: The DIY is on Babbacombe Road B3199. The last couple of times I have been to Ansteys, we parked on Perinville Road its just before the store on the right handside of the road (if coming from the north).
