Description

The Manor House is an imposing 19th Century Gothic Mansion House comprising of sixteen apartments and set in a peaceful location near the sea front in Torquay. Built in 1867 for the world famous engineer William Froude, pioneer of powered flotation and a major influence in ship design, the mansion has a commanding position in Cockington.

Apartment 16 is spacious and light with large windows, giving access to the furnished patio from both the living area and bedroom. Guests have the added benefit of the communal indoor pool, sauna and gym plus the beautiful gardens. The patio area provides a peaceful spot to relax and enjoy the views across the garden down to the sea. This property has been awarded the prestigious 'five-star' rating.

This property is close to local shops and a lovely village pub, the Drum Inn, is nearby offering seasonal dishes and real ales in an enchanting setting.

From the nearby sea front you can also catch the bus into Torquay town centre and harbour or explore the rest of Torbay. If you feel like a walk, then Torquay town centre is just 20 minutes away, as is Cockington village and the country park.

Our stay at Manor House was quiet and peaceful. The apartment was clean and very comfortable. Little things like a Cafeteria, lots of crockery and cutlery to cook with make all the difference in a self-contained place. The bed was a DREAM!!!

16 The Manor House

The property was excellent. Have stayed in many cottages and apartments, but this was the best. Pool, gym, sauna, lovely gardens. We had bad weather but the apartment made up for it. If you can't walk up a hill then unless you mean to travel out by car this could be the only drawback.

The Manor House, Torquay

There were no problems at all in finding the holiday location which is centrally located between Torquay and Paignton, so it is an ideal base. We mainly used our train and bus passes to get around and both the bus stops and the train station are just a ten minute walk away. The apartment itself had all the facilities we needed and once inside after a day out it was pleasant to just relax and chill out. Even the weather was kind to us - it only rained heavily on Friday but we still managed to get out, although in the car this time. Talking of car use, we did find the traffic at Torquay and Paignton and the approaches to these towns to be exceptionally heavy, and this was not helped by the roadworks on the dual carriageway into Torquay, but getting around on public transport did mean we could get about without the added problem of the car. Recommended visits would be the two Dart Valley Railways, Dartmouth, Teignmouth and Dawlish, Trago Mills, The House of Marbles, Brixham and Totnes.

We could not have had a better apartment

A very immaculate extremely comfortable apartment, it certainly lives up to the pictures on the web site. We could not have had a better apartment. Beautifully presented contains absolutely everything you need with crockery and kitchenware of an excellent quality. Very comfortable bedroom and furthermore the apartment is in idyllic building with the addition of a swimming pool and gym. We had an excellent time and well worth the money. Thank you Iain and Sue for letting us share your lovely apartment.

January break

My husband had agreed to give a talk in Torquay and we needed somewhere to stay for a few days so we could combine the visit with meeting friends. 16 Manor House was a perfect venue as it was close to everywhere we needed to be. The rain was lashing down when we arrived and the apartment was an oasis in the midst of a full blown gale. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.

Peaceful retreat with lots of mod cons

Our stay at 16 Manor House was wonderful and we really didn't want to go back home. We weren't sure what time we would arrive but Sue was still around and made us really welcome. We were left with some biscuits and a bottle of wine in the lounge and some Elementary s toiletries in the bedroom along with large fluffy white bath towels. The furnishings were quite contemporary with some hints of traditional and the mixture worked really well. The kitchen was stocked with a great collection of all the usual things you would find at home but not necessarily in a holiday let. Two good sofas in the lounge area with a large TV and BOSE sound bar (can see a trip to our BOSE shop on the horizon). The bedroom was beautiful but a slight shame the boiler is situated in a corner. As previous people have said the bed was fabulous and comfy but the pillows were slightly lumpy (we both freely admit we are very picky about what pillows we have). The bathroom was very good and the shower magnificent. Overall we had a great time and truly enjoyed our stay and the accommodation. We will be returning in the future I am certain. 5 star platinum is certainly right. One last thing I never did see a timer for the heating.
