Just spent the weekend here for my 40th birthday....and all I can say is wow what a amazing house....pool and hot tub where incredible ....we did not really leave house....as it literally had everything we needed and some....owner was fantastic....will definitely be booking again and already recommended to other friends
This is an imposing looking property gated and secure . We stayed over Christmas week it was lovely and warm and the pool was a great temperature and our four small grandchildren were never out of it. The kitchen had plenty of cutlery and dishes,plates etc. We booked this as the photos looked fantastic and it is classed as a platinum property. That is where it ends I’m sorry to say. This property is in need of some TLC, paintwork needs attention, the light switches in two bedrooms did not work the wardrobe door in my daughters room came off in her hand .her shower was hand held . Our master room the window would not open and the bathroom is in dire need of a refit. The shower had to be propped upright with a foil tablet pack, the whole area was black soiled grout and black damp above your head, if we had checked into some cheap 2star b&b it would be expected. We were very shocked that the owner might think that for £3000 per week this was acceptable . The conservatory leaked in several places when it rained the varnish from the wood was running onto the floor. The changing room area the light was hanging from the ceiling. The double shower in that area reaked of dirty dogs, we would not let the children use it, so the only usable shower was our bedroom. In the hallway was an old curtain rail with the cord tied up and no curtain?. The sofas in the lounge are in need of a good clean the were quite grubby. The cooker in the kitchen is very old and an engineer had to be called out xmas eve as it was not working properly. The two cafetière were broken, no coffee machine.the utility floor looked like it had a firework go off on it. All in all we felt the owner had certainly taken her eye off the ball and was really charging way to much money for a property that did not deliver what was expected, there were also quite a few cobwebs inside and out I would be changing my cleaning team I think. For what we paid we expected top dollar this was not delivered. All we can hope is that everything is changed before the next guests. I do have photos and will provide them on a private email if needed. Please check before you book this house had the relevant work carried out.
Had the most fantastic family holiday at Singleton manor enjoyed every single moment not a thing that was missing even down to milk tea sugar coffee on arrival
Torque within walking distance plenty of lovely shops PERFECT will be visiting again, owner a very lovely lady.
Thoroughly enjoyed a family holiday at The Singleton Manor, Torquay, made up of a party of 4 couples and 2 children. The owners lived at the Coach House situated next to the main house. They were friendly and helpful. Upon arrival, we were informed that the jacuzzi in bedroom one and outside lights in the garden were not working. Whilst this was disappointing, it didn't spoil our holiday. The house is stunning and we all enjoyed using the pool and hot tub. The main harbour and town was about a 10 minute walk, where there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops. You can also catch a ferry to nearby Brixham and Paignton. Well worth a day out. The walk back is up a steep hill, but there are plenty of cabs around if you didn't fancy walking. We were lucky with the weather, and had use of sun bed chairs provided for sitting out in the beautiful gardens. I think the shower facility could do with upgrading in bathroom 3, which is the ensuite to bedroom 3 with the four poster bed. Overall, though, everyone had a fantastic time and we loved our stay at Singleton Manor.
Beautiful house, immaculate, but little things let it down, would have thought for a platinum house, should have TVs in all bedrooms, as mixed ages stay here and some of the older generation like to go to bed to watch tv! The bedding felt very cheap the duvets barely fitted the beds. When we arrived the grass wasn't even mowed, all the outside lights weren't working so we never saw the lovely garden lit up at night, walking the dogs last thing was a bit daunting! so when we walked in,definitely didn't have that wow feeling, pool and jacuzzi were great. The lounge was very big but had no soft furnishings so the room felt very empty and echoey, which made it very hard for our elderly parents to hear the TVs, great holiday but little things let it down.
Lovely place for family to enjoy house and gardens. Pool and hot tub very popular! Lynne the owner was very friendly and helpful. Even though weather was a bit up and down we had lots to do, at the house and lovely Torquay. Would love to come back!
