6 The Manor House.

We had a wonderful holiday! From start to finish our holiday experience was amazing. Sue, the manager was a wonderful help and gave us plenty of information about the area, she even mailed one of my children's special teddies that we left behind! The house was great and all three kids fitted comfortably in the twin room. The house was warm, clean and well equipped. Thanks for a much needed break!

Such a great place to stay

Holiday wonderful, a lot due to no 6 being such a great place to stay. So well equipped - everything that you could possibly need. Area beautiful. 'Bygones' a great place to visit - good value for money. Agatha Christie's house well worth a visit. Chelston Manor a great place to eat. Hope to come back some time. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

As near perfection as possible

As near perfection as possible. A wonderful time to reconnect as a family. Girls enjoyed having a pool. The family loved various excursions. Torre Abbey was amazing and sensitively restored. We will be back... had as lovely time here, the weather's been nice too. The beds are delightful and we went swimming every day, almost felt that it was home. Did not want to go at all. Thanks for the nice stay.

6 The Manor House

Lovely accommodation. Home from home. So many extras included. Lovely warm pool and table tennis a bonus. Plenty to see and do in this area. Even found time to travel to the Eden Project. Great food and welcome at the Chelston Manor. Cockington well worth a visit and cream tea was excellent. Many thanks to Mrs O'Gorman and Blue Chip Holidays.

Fantastic Holiday Experience at The Manor House, Torquay..

I would definitely recommend The Manor House, What a beautiful period property, Also Blue Chip Holidays, the whole experience was fantastic, The Manor House was in an excellent position to all amenities, was well presented and in good decorative order all round and very well equipped, Only one item that could be of a better quality would be a decent iron and maybe the gym equipment and changing rooms need a little attention, as having a gym and swimming pool was one of the attractions for ourselves I personally think would be well worth that little extra being spent in my opinion would make the whole experience just perfect, really cant fault anything from booking, to arriving, to the holiday itself just Perfect! The only sad and disappointing moment was when we had to leave to go back home, We truly Loved the Holiday Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.....

6 The Manor House

Absolutely first class!! Thoroughly enjoyable stay. Tranquil, yet a pleasant walk into Torquay. The property affords splendid facilities. Enjoyed the pool and sauna every day. Sue, the property manager, took the time to meet us on Boxing Day and showed us all the features, most appreciated. All in all a relaxing break in great surroundings. Many thanks.

6 The Manor House

We have spent a lovely week in No6. This house is the most well equipped holiday home we have stayed in. Loved how the owners have catered so much for our needs i.e. cooler bag and picnic hamper in cupboards. Loved the books and board games. My 3year old loved your children's books. Swimming pool in the complex was a bonus, although the weather has been amazing so only used it once. All in all a fab stay and sorry to go home. Thank you.

The Manor House has everything you need

The lady of the manor Sue is an absolute Gem. Thank you for being so kind, polite and helpful. The Manor House has everything you need and not a cobweb in sight. Enjoyed Torquay, it is a good place. If you enjoy Italian then give Gemelli's a go.

6 The Manor House

We stayed at no 6 the manor house Torquay from Wednesday to Saturday this week and I just wanted to say how lovely the property is. We had a wonderful time, it's a real home from home. The books and games in the cottage for a 3 year old were exceptional, we need not have taken any. Thanks for a lovely property with exact description, no exaggeration!

6 The Manor House

We have enjoyed a wonderful week's stay. The quality of the accommodation is superb! You have the most well equipped kitchen of any holiday rental we have ever stayed in. The apartment was cleaned to an extremely high standard. With our young family (Daniel 17 months), the just out of town location suited us perfectly. The location of the apartment is a great base for excursions. Highlights for us included the steam train to Dartmouth and Paignton zoo. We enjoyed great food at the Bayard Cove inn and Saveurs (French Patisserie), both in Dartmouth, as well as Amicis, and Offshore in Torquay and Old Market House, in Brixham. Overall, we have been pleasantly surprised by our week in Torbay and would highly recommend this apartment to our friends. Thank You!

We had a lovely time at Manor House Number 6. We had a lovely time walking around the sea front. Enjoyed the welcome wine.Would definitely come again. The pool was lovely. An excellent base for our weekend away. Everything we needed and more available in the cottage and an easy stroll away from the town and the shops. Enjoyed having access to the pool and yes we'd love to come again.
