A wonderfully welcoming bed and breakfast. The owners were incredibly helpful and made the stay as easy as possible. The rooms were lovely and the breakfast was to die for. The homemade bread and jams were a tasty and welcome touch. We would heartily recommend this to friends. We stayed in a family room (two adjoining rooms) which were perfect.... More

You could, I guess, spend 15 or 20 minutes writing a list of all the things you would like a B&B to be. Alternatively you could save yourself time and book a stay at The Charterhouse! Wonderfully friendly, attentive and helpful owners, clean, impeccably furnished rooms with all the facilities you could ever require, and last and by no means... More

Lovely weekend in Torquay, staying at the Charterhouse for the first time. The hospitality was outstanding. We stayed in the superior room with a beautiful sea view. The room was spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was superb - quality food and the additional surprise of the yummy homemade bread and jams. Easy to recommend and will definitely come back again.

This was our first stay at The Charterhouse following reviews from Trip Advisor. The accommodation was very comfortable. Rooms were clean and well presented. The location is a short walk into Torquay, perhaps 20-25 minutes along the seafront. In the other direction is the Saxon village with a local pub and public park. The B & B is ideal for... More

We loved staying at the Charterhouse. The owners were great fun and the location was great. A short walk from a Norman village and close to the beachfront, my biggest regret was that we didn't have more time to spend at this great B & B. One thing that struck me is that they both enjoy running a B &... More

We have been visiting the Charterhouse since 2009 as least once a year. This year we have stayed with Marion and Les 3 times. Over the past 6 years we have stayed in most of the bedrooms all of which are very clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated and include a well stocked hospitality tray. We stayed in The Riviera Suite on... More

we had the great privilege of staying last weekend at this lovely homely B and B in cockington. We stayed with our two children in the family room at the top of the building which consists of two interconnecting rooms, one with a double bed, and the other with twin beds. It was great as not only did the bathroom... More

An excellent welcome with cup of tea on arrival in the guest lounge and Marion was full of information about the area. The room was spotlessly clean and warm and spacious and the ensuite facilities were just as good. The area is very quiet and we slept with the windows open and not disturbed. The breakfast was a good selection... More
