Lisa and Christophe as new owners of Charterhouse have got it spot on. Friendly, welcoming with the right balance of hospitality. Lovely location, 5 minutes to the sea, 20 minutes to the town. Cockington village a delight and lovely walk up by the stream. Sample the omelettes. Perfect, I'm looking forward to my lesson next time! Thank you for making...

Unfortunately only a two night stay, however, will certainly book again when in the area. The hosts were superb and made you feel at home, couldn't do enough to help. Definitely a place to go for enjoying

Lovely b&b. Run by Lisa and Christophe who were so welcoming and helpful, and for whom nothing was too much trouble. Really nice, spacious room, with great sea view. The whole place was bright and clean and our room had so many great little touches (mini fridge with proper milk for in room tea, together with two little chocolate bars....

What a beautiful house near the sea front but a short walk into the picturesque village, very friendly and welcoming hosts nothing was to much trouble, the breakfast was the best I've ever had from a B&B. We took our small dog and stayed in the garden room, looking forward to a return stay now we've found this little gem.

Wonderful French welcome from Christophe. Lisa thoughtfully put out glasses in case our friends came back with us. Our bed was comfy and the breakfast was too superb. We were cuddled on the terrace by their puppy. Their three beautiful cats were more discerning but sat on our laps after encouragement. We will be back.

We have stayed at the Charterhouse three times in the last year and even with the new owns Lisa and Christophe it was still 5 star could not fault anything could not do enough for you. Charterhouse is so handy for the bus service and Cockington country park.

Lisa and Christophe gave us a warm welcome to their home. Our room was very nice and bathroom excellent .The quality of the breakfast was very good with the full English the best so far. A walk through the water meadows to Cockington for a cream tea is a must.

Our stay at the Charterhouse was a wonderful introduction to Torquay. Our Riviera room had a wonderful view, and the breakfasts were delicious - especially the homemade marmalade. Lisa and Christophe made us feel very welcome, and went above and beyond the call of duty in their service to us.

Stayed one night in a family room. A lovely peaceful place with owners that really know how to look after their guests! Our daughter loved her separate interconnecting room and quickly went about making it her own! Room quiet, warm, clean and comfortable with plenty of nice touches. Breakfast superb with plenty of choice. Lovely gardens and a great location...

First class service, high standard of decor and the breakfast is really is as superb as some of the other reviews make out. Make sure you allow some time to visit the nearby village of Cockington. Great experience all round.
