we enjoyed our stay very much at torwood gables Torquay a great place and gables was close to harbour and shops and a great pub Devon arms ferry a great way to travel to Brixham weather was good to lovely holidayA previous customer - 8th September 2016
Torwood Gables is so convenient for the Harbour and shopping in Torquay, in addition to one of the nicest fish and chip shop you can imagine! You'd think you would have to trade in peace for this but it is surprisingly quiet on this road. The view from the lounge area is lovely, across the rooftops and trees to the next hill. The cottage is quirky in it's layout but I think the owners have not played up enough to the history of the building as the furniture and decoration is merely functional (although it is comfortable). Lack of wifi is a minus as is the use of a Sky box with no access which restricts channel choice for the evenings you want to stay in. There is also a lack of alternative choices to TV as there are only a few old books and DVDs. I would stay here again but would like to see some attention to detail to really make this place shine.A previous customer - 24th August 2016
excellent base for a week's break. we found this property a superb base for a holiday in torquay for 2 adults and a 16 yr old teenager. would have no hesitation to use this property again. only downside is that itneds a lick of paintA previous customer - 20th July 2016

Nice place to stay, near to Harbour and most of restaurant are in walk able distance, Bedroom in downstairs was good size but upstairs bed room was small , few things need changing such as carpet and heater system.hot water system was excellent, it is good for adults and personally not suitable for child (No 1) apartment.A previous customer - 9th January 2016
First Class service from Holiday Homes & Cottages. Torwood Gables is very clean, quiet and cosy.Mrs C - York - 16th November 2015
A lovely little property well located within short walking distance from the harbour and town centre. It is a little on the small side but perfect for a short stay in beautiful Torqary. We would stay again.A previous customer - 3rd November 2015
Excellent service from Holiday Homes & Cottages - Very helpful. Would recommend Torwood Gables and book it again.Mrs A - Southampton - 16th September 2015
Loved the location of Torwood Gables fantastic for the Torquay Town Centre, the only down side was the walk up th big hill. The cottage was ideall for a family of 4 but the second bedroom is too tiny for a double bed, I was disappointed that there was no bedding supplied for sofa bed and the towels that were supplied were only hand towels. The property would benefit from a bit of updating and could of been little cleaner. Eg Dishcloths, floor mop and washing up sponges etc suppllied were disgusting. We still really enjoyed the holiday.A previous customer - 18th August 2015
We've stayed at this property several times and love the atmosphere and quirkiness of the place a n dog friendliness and will be here again for our next holiday.A previous customer - 9th June 2015
Excellent, faultless service as always from Holiday Homes & Cottages. Would recommend Torwood Gables - it is unusual and quirky and perfect for a quiet dog-friendly holiday.Mr & Mrs C - Sheffield - 6th June 2015
Excellent service from Holiday Homes & Cottages. Would recommend Torwood Gables and would book it again.Mr B - Westerham - 19th April 2015
Gorgeous location and 5 minutes walk from the harbour.The house is quiet charming.Just need refreshing with new carpet and painting.Some of the pillows need to be change and all bed would be better with mattress cover .Over all the place it's lovely and well equipped.A previous customer - 14th April 2015
very nice location, clean and comfortable. No problems during the stay. Small parking space, avaible only for one car. Draining system a bit nosy but value for the moneyA previous customer - 21st October 2014
I was delighted to find accommodation that allowed dogs. This place appeared bigger than the pictures showed so felt there was room for two adults and a big dog. However, the cottage is not really near grass to take the dog to in that early morning rush! I saw trees at the back of Torwood Gables on the promotional pictures when I booked so thought there was a wooded area. However, there was no access to the wood so it was a trek and poop bags at the ready. Small gripe as walks were lovely when you have more time later in the day. I was very impressed with the booking process, it all felt personal, friendly and info provided was good. Great to park right by the front door- spot on. Beware the steps down to the cottage were awful in the dark, very steep, shallow steps and dark. Tip- if your coming back in the dark leave the outside light switched on as it isn't on a sensor- I would like to see that changed for the future a sensor is necessary for safety. Also, dark to unlock the door. Please can we have a light sensor for next year when I book? I was impressed with the little touches that were provided like tea and coffee. We did not use the dishwasher or washer but great to see you could use if you stayed longer. It all felt homely, clean, lovely hot water lots of towels and a bath. Again, grip rails would have been helpful for access in and out of the bath. The little bedroom in the gables was impossible for me to access, if needed it would only suit young people as those steps steep. That seems to be the main theme it is not ideal if you are not steady on difficult steps. A well stocked kitchen lots of plates bowls and glasses even a cafetiere. I will book for next year as the positives outweighed the negatives.A previous customer - 24th September 2014
When comparing other holiday lets this apartment is not great value for money. The location is very good as long as you can handle the steep hill it sits on. The decor is very sad. in desperate need of painting, lighting in the bathroom is very poor, the shower is terrible, no extract ventilation in the bathroom or kitchen. I noticed some cobwebs around the ceilings, nothing major but still should not be there. I understand the owner had placed this apartment on the market which may explain the lack of desire to bring this apartment up to scratch, seems money for old rope here. There is great potential for this apartment so may be it should move on to someone else who can put a little passion back in to this apartment. When you go on any holiday you want to be happy in your environment, almost home from home but this is not the case here, but what is most disappointing there is no reason why it cannot be the case, all for a small amount of money and effort! The money I paid goes a long way on what needs spent.A previous customer - 19th September 2014
The only problem we had was with the wardrobe in the main bedroom and difficulty opening the kitchen window. As you are aware, we rang the owner, as stated in the information pack, and was told her husband would come the following day. This did not happen and we did not hear from them. The wardrobe was difficult to open and close due to it not being attached properly. Generally the accommodation was well equipped, clean and comfortable. I think, if my daughter and her friend had come, as originally planned, the mezanine bedroom would have proved a very tight fit. Position of accommodation was excellent.A previous customer - 28th August 2014
Firstly: the location is perfect. It's only a two minute walk downhill (Ok, so it's a little steep going home again but well worth the effort) and as parking spaces in Torquay are like gold dust, having our own space was really valuable. Secondly, the house itself is smaller than the pics show but very well utilized. The bathroom was clean with lovely big towels for everyone. The hotwater heater makes lots of noise and there is definitely less hot water than cold coming out, but that's OK. The main bedroom was large and bed is comfortable with clean white linen. The living room is small though large enough for three people. The kitchen is well-equipped and everything is clean and in good working condition. (Great to have a washer/dryer on vacation!) The second bedroom really is a lot smaller than the picture and is really only a small alcove above the landing. You cannot be claustrophobic if you sleep here and is only appropriate for a young teenager/older child. This space was disappointing and should be labelled as a half bedroom. Also annoying that the curtain could not be opened there. A couple of small, small tweaks (like maybe an info sheet with map, opening hours for shops, etc) and this place will be perfect. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and after only a few hours, it felt like home. Highly recommended. On our next visit to Torquay, we will definitely try to book this house again.A previous customer - 5th August 2014

Lovely comfortable place. Quiet but not too far out of the main attractions. Easy walking distance to the town. Have stayed there before and would stay there again.A previous customer - 22nd July 2014
No vacuum cleaner did not leave sheet for bed settee as requested. Light bulb for spot light on living room required. Sliding wardrobe doors kept coming off runners. Wardrobe in loft bedroom unstable as soon ad clothes put in. Only minor things did not spoil holiday but need looking intoA previous customer - 22nd July 2014
Great location just up the road from harbour. Great facilities couldn't ask for more in the cottage. Off street parking was great as Torquay is bad for parking.A previous customer - 1st July 2014
The weather was fine for our week and this was more than supported by the accommodation at 1 Torwood Gables - excellent location, clean/tidy, quite and suited our needs perfectly. We arrived parked the car and were able to walk everywhere or use the fine transport links throughout the bay and beyond, only using the car to leave for home. Many ThanksA previous customer - 27th May 2014
