Second time for us, marvelous weekend break. Breakfast was an absolute delight, Marion and Les really made us feel welcome and always made time to answer silly questions even when they were busy. We'll definitely be back.

Our first anniversary was made all the better for staying here, a beautiful quiet location and within a very short walking distance to the sea, fantastic food, and a welcome that will definately make you want to come back

We were looking for a B&B that had a family suite so that our two girls (12 and 8) could sleep in a connected room to ours. The Charterhouse's family suite was ideal as it was at the top of the house and very self-contained so we had no worries about them while they were next door.

Les and Marion were wonderful, they really made the stay special. From the initial welcome pot of tea and chocolates in the room, they were ideal hosts. Marion went out of her way to be helpful and Les's homemade breads and jams are legendary - really made the breakfasts even more fantastic than they already were.

The B&B is well placed and in a nice and quiet area of town, we walked to the centre of Torquay one day and to Cockington Court the other - both within easy walking distance, even with the kids (although tiny ones may struggle).

Next time we visit Torquay, we will definitely stay here again.

My wife and I, and her elderly mother (age 92), stayed at the Charterhouse for four nights. Marion and Les are excellent hosts and the breakfast excellent, especially Les' home-made bread and marmalade. Rooms are excellent and well appointed, a ground floor Garden Room for mum next door to the dining room, and the beds very comfortable. The Charterhouse is very quiet and ideally located for visits to Cockington, Torquay, Paignton or day trips further afield. I have no hesitation in recommending the Charterhouse and look forward to a return visit..

Room Tip: Garden Rooms for the elderly or families otherwise all rooms are excellent. Those at the front have...

We have stayed at the Charterhouse three times and would recommend it to anyone wanting a home from home holiday. Marion and Les are the perfect hosts, the breakfast sets you up for the day and the location is ideal for touring this part of Devon.

Room Tip: A good range of rooms to suit everyone. Book early as rooms go very quickly

We stayed for 2 nights quite last minute. Marion and Les are wonderful hosts and couldn't have been anymore welcoming. The breakfast is beautiful...we all ate far too much! The family suite was perfect for our needs. Thank you and see you again soon.

Just returned from our first - but not our last - visit to The Charterhouse. Marion & Les are such attentive hosts, genuinely working their hardest to ensure their guests have a wonderful stay. We stayed in room 1, the Garden Room, which was just perfect for us. It was quiet, comfortable, everything you need for a great nights sleep. As for the breakfast - well what can we say, it was superb! Les should go on Masterchef with his homemade breads & preserves! We left very happy - if a little fatter - and we cannot recommend the place strongly enough. We'll be back!!

Room Tip: The Garden Room, although some may think it is small, it is cozy and perfect for a good nights sleep...
