“Excellent accommodation and excellent location”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Situated close to shops, harbour and pubs and restaurants. We enjoyed boat ride to Brixham a lovely place, plenty of shops, eating places. My husband and sons enjoyed sea fishing on a boat, great experience. My disabled father was thrilled with a ground floor bedroom and bathroom made life easy for him. The house was well equipped with everything you need when away from home. Beautiful beaches and lovely walks. My friend and I found The Grosvenor Hotel that was in a channel documentary a couple of years ago which we followed. A great house and location for all ages. Our first visit to Torquay but hopefully not our last.

We’re glad that you enjoyed your holiday so much – you really got out and about! We’ve enjoyed the Brixham trip too and it is a bargain at £1 each way! Thanks for the review and we hope that you come back to Torquay soon.

“Fantastic stay at St Christopher's”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I've just got back from a stay at St Christopher's in Torquay with family and all I can say is that the house was fantastic!

The location was ideal, with local shops, transport and restaurants all within a short 5 minute walk. Plus only a short stroll from some lovely walks towards Meadfoot beach.

The accommodation was great. We arrived early and were immediately welcomed by David who did all he could to get the house ready as soon as possible for my family. David was incredibly friendly and approachable. The house was very clean and had everything we needed and more. Some lovely finishing touches as well like mini Easter eggs on the children's bed pillows and a selecion of local cakes for the adults made sure everyone was happy on arrival!

Although the weather wasn't ideal we even managed a BBQ in the small but private garden.

Overall I felt very welcome by David and the house was furnished to a high standard with everything we needed for a family holiday. I would definitely stay here again if returning to the Torquay area.

“Amazing holiday home!!!”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I recently stayed here with some friends, the house is absolutely fantastic. It is so clean, big and comfortable. They have put everything you need for a brilliant stay. The location is perfect, just a short stroll into the town but out the way so you can relax in peace on the patio. The owners are lovely, even leaving us little cakes and bubbly which was fantastic to arrive to. I really would recommend this holiday home to everyone and hope to return again one day!!

“Absolutely fantastic holiday home!”
Reviewed November 22, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Myself and my husband had previously stayed at St Christophers in 2008 with our family (which included our 15 month old son - the house is very child friendly) and we couldn't wait to go back, this time with some close friends. We stayed for 3 nights in November 2013 and it was just as fantastic as the first time! The house is in a great location, close enough to walk to the beach and the amenities in the town centre, but tucked away enough not to be disturbed by any evening noise from the town. The property itself is beautifully clean and tidy, wonderfully decorated and with every utensil you could possibly need in the kitchen! The owners, David and Caroline, provide a first class and extremely polite and friendly service in terms of booking and keeping in contact prior to staying, and are on hand should you need them during your stay. David has been there to personally greet us upon arrival on both of our stays, and could not be more helpful. I have nothing bad to say at all about St Christophers and we will definitely be returning. I have one final word to describe everything about St Christophers - excellent!

“Excellent Holiday Home”
Reviewed September 10, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My wife and I stayed at St Christopher’s with our three young children (aged 3 and 17 month old twins) and my parents for the last week in August and the first week of September 2013. This is a beautiful holiday home, conveniently located a short walk from the Marina in Torquay. The house was immaculately clean when we checked in and the owners were extremely accommodating providing additional high chairs and cots and by removing some furniture for us to make the home more toddler friendly. The rooms are spacious and well decorated. Torbay is a great destination for a family holiday with a variety of excellent beaches and numerous places to visit and see. Torre Abbey Sands Beach is a 10 minute walk from St Christopher’s and is an excellent, clean and safe beach for young children. My father used a mobility scooter during the trip and had no problems getting around but the house is located up a relatively steep hill so may not be ideal for disabled or elderly guests that do not have access to a mobility scooter. The driveway to the house is also narrow and may be difficult to negotiate if you have a big car but apart from that you would struggle to find a better holiday home with more accommodating and welcoming owners.
