We stayed for 3 nights in November whilst visiting relatives. The new owners are really welcoming and the food fantastic! Our room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Brilliant value in a lovely setting, very convenient for access to the seafront. We will definitely be returning again soon.

We stayed in the Riviera room which is spacious, elegant and has a beautiful view over the gardens and to the sea. Lisa and Christophe took over this B & B last weekend and must have worked really hard to get everything sorted and in order. They are extremely welcoming and friendly hosts and served up a high-quality breakfast. We...

The Charterhouse is a top quality bed and breakfast. The owners, Les and Marion, are relaxed and really friendly.

Breakfast is included and...

Fantastic stay, made to feel right at home; in fact we actually called it home, during a slip of the tongue! Marion is the life and sole of the Charter House and the place would not be the same without her, she made us feel so welcome and provided plenty of local information. Breakfast was fab, dining room is to...

The ownere Marion and Les are lovely, friendly and very chatty. We stayed a few nights over the half term holidays before the summer holidays. We stayed in the small garden room and it was very small but perfect for us as it was just a base to explore the area. Has a small seating area outside and a small...

We've just returned from our second stay at The Charterhouse and had a very enjoyable time there. It's definitely one of the best B&Bs I've ever stayed in. Marion and Les are great hosts and just very nice and genuine people. We got a warm welcome and pot of tea on arrival, advice on places to see and restaurant tips....

We have just returned from a 3 night break. We had a lovely time, great location, comfortable room, fantastic breakfasts and superb hosts. Could not ask for more. We were able to walk into Torquay and Paignton with our teenage children and were lucky enough to have great weather too.
