Review by Sue from Dorset: "Wonderful! We had a fantastic long weekend for our family from USA and UK attending a celebration party in Torquay. The house was spacious, very welcoming and social and we had a most enjoyable stay. Lovely and warm (being November) and well equipped and comfortable. The whole experience was excellent and thoroughly recommended if you enjoy period homes."

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful House, lovely large rooms and perfect for large groups. It is a very sociable house with gorgeous views and we enjoyed our stay very much. The bed linen and towels provided were of a lovely quality. Great base for exploring the surrounding area. It is within walking distance into town, although could be a problem for some as it is quite an hilly area. There are a couple of small items that needed a bit of TLC but this did not affect the enjoyment of our holiday.
