Description

8 Torwood Gables is a 3 bedroom mid terraced stone built house that is one of a number of properties converted from a former school building in Meadfoot Lane, Torquay.

The house still has original wooden beams and windows and has recently been refurbished to a high standard, with luxury fittings and contemporary furnishings. It has a solid wood flooring in living area, ceramic tiles in kitchen and bathroom and fitted carpet on the stairs and in the bedrooms.

The location is quiet, yet is a few minutes walk down hill to the town centre and harbour where you will find The Princess Theatre, and the pleasant waterfront walks along the marina. The popular Fleet Walk Shopping Centre is also close by.

You will find numerous restaurants and bars on Torwood Street and around the inner harbour plus upmarket restaurant, The Orange Tree, is just a 1 minute walk away in Parkhill Road. Living Coasts, Torquays coastal zoo, is just 2 minutes walk.

Torre Abbey Sands and Meadfoot beach are within walking distance, as is the Torquay stretch of the South West coast path. The medieval Torre Abbey is around 5 minutes walk away and other nearby attractions such as the Babbacombe Model Village, Kents Cavern and Bygones are a short drive away.

Torwood Gables benefits from on-site parking. A stay in our luxury properties is perfect for a getaway at any time of year.

I can recommend to anyone wanting a quality property for a holiday to try Blue Chip. I\'ve used several agencies over the last 25 years to book holiday properties and can honestly say that the property I rented in Torquay was the best I've ever stayed in.

Fantastic holiday!

We had an excellent holiday at 8 Torwood Gables. We had everything we needed, including some extras for our toddler, including stair gates and a highchair. Well presented, very clean and the welcome pack was a nice touch for when we arrived. Situated within walking distance of Torquay town centre we found that there was lots to do both within walking distance and a short train or bus ride away. When contacting the property manager about the keys and the highchair (we had selected one at the time of booking but this had not been passed onto the property manager) he was very friendly and returned our messages very quickly. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location, first class accommodation.

Great location, only minutes walk away from the harbour. Having a parking space at the property was a bonus as we hardly had to use the car as we used the boats to visit other places. The house was wonderful, everything was clean and comfortable, well equipped, plenty of space. The property was situated partway up a hill so may not be suitable for everyone, however it certainly helped us burn up the calories after the delicious cream teas we indulged in. Would like to return with our grandchildren, the house and location would be perfect!

This was our second visit to Torwood Gables in 4 months. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and Mark and Douglas, the property managers ensured a warm welcome with a much appreciated welcome pack which comes in very handy on arrival, it saved having to dash out to the shops. Thanks to them and well done guys!

Excellent Outstanding Holiday Experience at the Gables Torquay.

From the moment I spoke to the representative over the phone I knew I had chosen the right property and company to book our holiday. We were overwhelmed upon arrival to see the accommodation, Everything from the cleanliness to the facilities available was top class. Would have no hesitation to recommend Blue Chip Holidays to all. We will book with them again and again, First Class.

Just had a week with my wife, two daughters & their fiances. Accommodation was excellent, comfortable & well appointed lots of mod-cons. Flowers & milk on arrival was a welcoming gesture. Parking at the accommodation is a massive plus.
