Wonderful place, great setting, spotlessly clean, very welcoming. We stayed with our 3 year old son. Fantastic family rooms, great breakfast. Les and Miriam couldn't do enough to help. Would definitely sTay again

It was our first trip to England and Torquay. We were absolutely enthusiastic for the friendliness of Marion and Less. From our room we could see the sea, our room and our bathroom were very clean and tidy.
The breakfast was very delicious and much more than enough, especially the home-baked bread made by less! We would like to come back any time. We can highly recommend it!

On arrival you immediately feel you have made the right choice. Les and Marion go that extra mile to make your stay is perfect. Our room ( number 3) on the ground floor overlooking the garden (the sea was also visible) was large, spotlessly clean and well furnished. The bathroom was also well equipped with soft towels and quality toiletries. The Kingsize bed ensured we enjoyed a good night sleep after a tiring day and totally undisturbed due to the quiet location. Breakfast - the best ever. Les's home made breads and jams are to die for, and the choice and quality of the food is excellent. The location of the Charterhouse suits all types of traveller be it by car, train or bus. Torquay centre either an easy 15/20 minute stroll along the front or 5 minutes by bus from the top of the road. If you are going to Torquay this is the B&B to stay.

We had 3 lovely days and nights at the Charterhouse Marion & Leslie were the perfect hosts nothing was to much bother and Breakfasts were excellent and we'll cooked. We were there with our Grandson's who liked it so much they want to return sooner rather than later I would definitely recommend the Charterhouse to everyone even though it may prevent us getting dates that we want

My boyfriend and i have just returned from a lovely 3 night stay here at the charterhouse. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome by Marian, who is so lovely, warm and accommodating. Our room was beautiful, with fantastic views of the garden and the sea in the (not so far away) distance. The b&b itself is located in a quiet area of Torquay, in a place called Cockington. Its a 15 to 20 minute walk into Torquay town with a good selection of restaurants and nightlife. Our breakfast's were amazing, with an excellent selection of cooked and continental. The bread is home cooked and is lovely.
I have stayed on many B&B's, good and bad and would thouroughly recommend a stay here, the hosts are so lovely and the rooms 10 out of 10. We cant wait for a return visit. Thank you so much Marian and Les ☺☺

We were so lucky to pick the Charterhouse (recommended to us by a local). Not only were the beds so comfortable and the breakfasts fantastic, but the welcome was out of this world. Marion and Les are the perfect hosts and made our short stay seem not nearly long enough.
