Excellent accommodation with a lovely balcony. Very peaceful area with a lovely walk through a wooded area to Cockington village not far away. Didn't need to use the car once we arrived as the property is ideally located close to the rail station and local bus stops. I would definitely try to book the apartment again if I holiday in Torquay in the future. Mrs Barbara White - 4th July 2018
Manderley is easily accessed whether you have a car or wish to travel by train as the railway station is conveniently nearby. The property is simply magnificent, and no expense has been spared on all furnishings … the TV in the lounge is a huge curved Smart TV with access to Netflix, Catch Up and full internet. For those wishing to keep in touch whilst away, the internet speed is really fast - for those wanting to chill out (weather permitting), the roof top patio area is absolutely splendid and equipped with two tables with chairs and 4 loungers, added bonus of a sea view. The property is close enough to be able to walk to the sea front within 5 or 6 minutes. Could not fault anything with this beautiful, spacious apartment and we shall be returning !!Mrs Tina Seaton - 26th June 2018
First impressions were very good, a lovely Victorian building in a lovely setting, we had lovely views from our lounge window and a sea view which made it even better. The building is beautiful with lovey high ceilings and tastefully decorated throughout. The sofas and seating is very comfortable within the lounge area with a massive TV which has Netflix installed which is good for the kids to chill out on in the evening. The kitchen has everything you need for your stay and the en-suite and the family bathroom are spot on, lovely showers in both rooms. the bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of wardrobe and drawers space for your stay. But the thing we loved the best was the outside Terrace/Patio... lovely seating area with great views and a sun trap for any sun bathing you might like to do.. we had a barbecue on the terrace and the kids loved.. perfect... All in all a lovely spot to have an holiday.. wish we had booked it for a longer period.

Good location and excellent property. Excellent service and we would recommend.Mrs Lisa Street - 3rd November 2017
Lovely stay at Manderley. We had a brilliant relaxing holiday, the apartment was lovely with everything you needed. It is in a great location to access facilities and nearby attractions. A sea view and lovely terrace just a shame we couldn't control the weather. :)K Perry - 3rd August 2017
Loved the apartment back in early June so much, we re-booked it for early September and had a couple of friends join us - who, like u,s described it as a home from home. No need to say more.A previous customer - 28th September 2016

The apartment is lovely .l did find a pair of socks in an ornament in the bedroom . Lovely kitchen everything you could want . But there was two dirty dish cloths left on the side ,also some rubbish in the bin . Which I found very off putting. We found sofa in the lounge to low . Apart from that very happy . We had a lovely holiday ,it was in just the right place ., for everythingA previous customer - 20th July 2016
We booked the week before arriving so got an extra good deal but was still impressed with the size of the accommodation for the money. All rooms light and airy and the outside space and private parking a bonus. Location perfect with wonderful sea views. Highly recommended!A previous customer - 6th July 2016

We had a wonderful holiday,accommodation was excellent with every facility need for a trouble free holiday.We will certainly consider staying there again next year knowing that we will have an enjoyable holiday againA previous customer - 14th October 2015
The lights fused on Tuesday night due to a bulb blowing and had great difficulty in contacting anyone even after using recommended phone numbers. Problem not solved until Friday! Fortunately, there were plenty of lamps. Awkward in the kitchen and bathroom without proper lighting. Very inconvenient! Only criticism.A previous customer - 7th October 2015
Service from Holiday Homes & Cottages was good - very helpful and polite. We would book Manderley again and recommend it.Mrs C - KetteringÂ - 3rd October 2015

We found Manderley a wonderful place to spend our Summer Holiday. The rooms were very large as you would expect in a Victorian House. Very clean and well presented. Manderley is just as described in the brochure. I would defiantly recommend the accommodation. Its location is perfectA previous customer - 8th July 2015
Excellent service from Holiday Homes & Cottages.Â Manderley is First ClassÂ - will certainly visit again.Mrs V - SolihullÂ - 4th July 2015
The apartment was ideal for our family. Very spacious and comfortable with everything we needed. There was a co-op and a pub close by which we could walk to. Just on the outskirts of Torquay town centre, it was a fair distance to walk but not a problem for us as we are fit and able.A previous customer - 20th June 2015
Excellent serviceÂ from Holiday Homes & Cottages.Â Would book Manderley again and recommend it.Mrs S - NorthamptonÂ - 30th May 2015

A lovely flat near the beaches and train station. We felt really at home. Everything we needed was there, including a washing machine and Wifi. Lucy was on hand to answer important questions.A previous customer - 26th August 2014
Manderley is a beautiful apartment, light & airy with a fantastic outdoor decking area. It is extremely well equipped with bedding, towels etc and there is every appliance you could wish for although we could have done with a manual for the microwave - managed to work it out eventually! It's in a very peaceful location and has great parking - the only downside is that if you have mobility problems you can't leave the car and walk to the shops/bus stop. Although the apartment is on the first floor the stairs are not too steep, even my 80 plus Mother managed them but she couldn't manage the walk to the beach or bus stop/shops. If you don't have any mobility problems then this is a great place for you - there are lots of local walks to the beach or to Cockington Court (a lovely place for afternoon tea & artisan shops), there was lots of information in the apartment not just about Torquay but other areas/attractions, plus a virtual library of books in the extra sitting room. Only one other little niggle - the rugs in the bedrooms don't have a non slip surface and if you get out of bed quickly you're likely to end up on the other side of the room! I would recommend this apartment to any of my friends/family, even though we had to use the car more than we liked it's in a really good location - minutes away from Torquay by car.A previous customer - 1st July 2014
Excellent service from Holiday Homes & Cottages - a good website, easy to browse and book.Â Really enjoyed our stayÂ at Manderley.Mrs K - ManchesterÂ - 28th June 2014
This is a gorgeous property, in fact I would happily buy it and live there permanently! It is very well appointed and furnished, the lounge especially is so comfortable. The decked terrace is great, as good as a garden. The location is quiet but so convenient for the seafront, and bus route into the town centre if you are feeling lazy. The view includes the little Torquay railway station nearby, but no problem with noise. There is a little row of shops within walking distance, and a pub/restaurant, and also a chippy which delivers. We stayed as a couple, so plenty of room to spread out, but it would be great for a group of friends or a family with older children. I would say that being on the first floor means that the terrace might be risky for unsupervised youngsters. Overall, 10 out of 10!A previous customer - 24th June 2014

Absolutely outatanding. Everything of the highest quality. All facilities, kitchen equipment, bathrooms etc excellent.Mr P - TredegarÂ - 28th July 2012
We were amazed when we walked through the door everything was spotless, the interior was amazing better than anything we have stayed in before. It was certainly a home from home and a bit more, especially with the lovely terrace where you could sit out on an evening. It was close by to everything so no car is necessary a train is a 2 minute walk away.The owners should be proud of this property I would highly reccommend to stay here as I am not easily pleased but this place did more, we would certainly stay at the Manderley again -Â Trip Advisor Review June 2012Mrs H - BradfordÂ - 9th June 2012
