Lovely house, great views from the conservatory and the patio outside, same views from the bedroom too. Fairly easy to get to buses (10 min walk) Strange heating system ! turned hot water on and radiators came on too !!! (I turned radiators off)A previous customer - 6th October 2015
The house is at the end of a small cul de sac with no through traffic so nice and quiet. it is well located for visiting the Agatha Christie Festival as the Museum, Imperial Hotel and Little Theatre were in walking distance were events were held. The view from the back of this property is well worth the steep climb up to it. You definitely need a car if you're not extremely fit. During the week there is a local bus every hour at the end of the street but nothing at weekends. Having a bathroom for each bedroom was very useful. There is a well equipped clean and tidy kitchen and the furniture in the sitting room was comfortable. Having a large warm conservatory at the back was a real bonus when the weather was not so good. The only downside to this was the constant drip from the water outlet pipe onto the plastic roof could be a bit annoying if under it for any length of time. I would definitely stay here again.A previous customer - 28th September 2015
The view from the garden is wonderful and the cottage is OK in itself. It could do with a couple of tweaks. They provide a tea towel in the kitchen (which had seen better days) but could do with a hand towel in there too. There is also a conifer that you have to negotiate to actually get up the step in to the house which could do with some SERIOUS pruning. Beds were comfy, TV/DVD required a PhD in Physics to get it to work but we managed eventually! The whole place just felt a little tired but was perfectly serviceable as a holiday home for a week. We have booked using Holiday Homes and Cottages several times before (and they are always lovely and helpful) and always used a different property which was the same price as this one but much higher standard (that was not available this year)A previous customer - 11th August 2015

Excellent service from Holiday Homes & Cottages. IÂ would recommend Gainsborough - very clean and tidyÂ on our arrival.Mr K - BristolÂ - 30th June 2014
Spent a weekend in this house in Torquay. House was comfortable (beds/duvets and pillows were great), warm and clean but facilities basic. Took us a while to work out how to get TV and DVD player to work without instructions. Internet did not connect for us either. Hired bed linen which was clean but left in bag for us to put on beds ourselves. We did not spend much time in the house as we were out all day and ate out at night so kitchen was adequate for us, but if a family was staying for a week and wanted to cook then the fridge was very small. Luckily I know Torquay well as it wasn't the easiest place to find but once in car and moving it was within 2-3mins of shops, pubs, sea etc. Parking was another problem. We were advised that we should use the garage or park in front of it and certainly there was extremely limited parking otherwise. However the garage was not easily identified at 10.00pm at night and as we have a larger car (S-Max) it was very difficult to manoevre in and out of the small courtyard where the garage was. We didn't even try to get it in the garage! The view from the back of the house of the bay was lovely.A previous customer - 16th May 2014
This is a modern, spacious, comfortable property with splendid views over Torbay. It also has a very nice conservatory and garden overlooking the sea where you can enjoy your meal and beautiful scenery at the same time. We had a lovely holiday and would have no hesitation in recommending this property or the holiday agency to others.A previous customer - 8th May 2014
