Manderley is a fabulous apartment which forms part of a stylish Victorian villa on the English Riviera. This three bedroom property has been refurbished to a very high standard and offers excellent holiday accommodation for 6. The large bay windows let the light flood in to the well furnished living areas and the kitchen comes complete with all appliances you would expect from a top quality holiday home. Bedrooms are beautifully furnished with comfortable king size beds and plenty of storage for those holiday essentials.
A real feature of the property is the spacious deck, elevated on the first floor with lovely 180 degree views through the glass balustrade – a very relaxing place to sit and soak up the sun and enjoy a little alfresco dining during your stay.
Manderley is in Chelston, a popular residential area close to the railway station. The beaches of Livermead and Torre Abbey are within walking distance and the town's amenities, harbour area and the popular Living Coasts Aquarium and Zoo are also nearby.
Torquay has some good restaurants, shops and cafes and if you head further inland you'll reach the Dartmoor National Park with its rugged landscape and Moorland villages. Head up to Haytor and walk to the rocky outcrop before hiking back to the pub for lunch… the food is excellent! If you're looking for city life, it's just a 25 minute drive into Exeter, a thriving university city with beautiful cathedral, good shops and restaurants... the city has a great café culture so be sure to make time for a coffee and cake!

Can this review be added to property reviews: We can only echo earlier revews: a superb apartment in a superb location. Very spacious and very comfortable, stylish and well equipped. Only 3 minutes from Torquay railway station (for our trains to Plymouth and Exeter, both lovely journeys) and 5 minutes to seafront with frequent buses around Torbay. We only used the car for two trips; a visit to Widecombe and Dartmoor then Buckfast Abbey was delightful....as was simply relaxing on the apartment’s wonderful terrace. We have rented many houes and apartments around Britain and Europe and this is up with the very best. B and JB Durham
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.
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 !!
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.
