  • "Lovely holiday flat."

    Much larger than expected with lots of space to relax. Really good location close to shops and cafes. Bedrooms overlook the pedestrian area of St Marychurch but was also very quiet and peaceful. Allocated parking space, easy to find and good access to Torquay either by driving or walking. Thoroughly recommend

    So happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, hope to see you again! Property Owner

  • "Lovely well equipped apartment."

    Bonus parking spot. Very informative guide giving emergency numbers and where important switches located if needed electric etc. Felt at home straight away due to contact from Neil and Max from the moment we booked. Would certainly plan to stay at Chapelstones again perhaps for a longer stay. One small negative on description on website 2 flights of stairs to reach property after parking. Just in case mobility issues exist.

    Thank you for your constructive feedback, we will ask Helpful Holidays to adjust the description. Best wishes and hope to see you again at Chapelsto Property Owner

    The sign on the back of the toilet is offensive.

    Thank you for your feedback, sorry for offending, it was not intended, this is meant as a fun reminder due to Covid and the sink being in the shower room. We didn't want an official notice in our home, so tried to have a bit of fun to a serious matter. Property Owner

  • "From the start of the booking Neil made contact and supplied us with useful information and made both himself & Maxine easily accessible for contact."

    This is a first for us as Sykes normally release this info once the full balance of the holiday has been paid - really refreshing to see and the info Neil provided early on gave us plenty of time to plan our holiday! Plenty of mentions in other reviews mention the quality of the accommodation and equipment etc and we would echo that! The location for us was perfect within easy walking distance of a lovely beach and plenty of boutique shops. Also, key locations within Torbay an easy short drive away. All in all a super stay and yet another quality Sykes Cottage!!

    Hi Patrick and so glad you enjoyed your stay. We're always pleased to share our local knowledge having lived here for most of our lives. Modern technology helps us to keep in contact and we're only a Whatsapp message away at all times! Keep in touch and hopefully speak again. Kind regards Neil & Maxine Property Owner

  • "This is a fabulous apartment, with every facility you could ever need."

    Spectacularly clean, with a beautiful kitchen, which has almost every conceivable thing you will need, and more. This apartment is a well placed base from which to explore the surrounding area. We arrived in Torquay by train and used the extensive and frequent bus services that are available. There is a small bus station not more than 200 yards away, just around the corner from the Co-Op. There are 3 well stocked supermarkets within a 500yard radius of the apartment. There is a Co-Op, a Sainsburys and a good Tesco's. Unfortunately the 2 pubs in the precinct were not to out liking, and are best avoided, as they were very crowded and extremely noisy, but there is a good selection of venues just a little further down the road on Babbacombe Downs, or a short bus ride into Torquay and back, with no parking worries! Would I recommend this apartment? Absolutely!

    Thank you so much for the lovely review. Both the pubs in the precinct tend to cater for local trade and can be lively on a Friday night. I prefer, as you suggest, the short walk to Babbacombe Downs where there's a better selection of venues. There is an independent shop called the "Happy Apple" at the top of the precinct which is my favourite as it sells spices & hard to find ingredients. Having lived in the apartment below, I didn't need to use my car as everything is in walking distance and the buses can take you everywhere and its cheaper than parking. Once again many thanks and I hope we see you again soon. Neil & Max Property Owner

  • "We regularly visit Torquay and surrounding areas to visit family."

    This is the best accommodation we have ever stayed in! Although we did not meet the owners they were very responsive by phone and they have literally thought of everything! Internally the apartment is VERY spacious with 2 huge bedrooms containing the most comfortable beds!! There is plenty of room to put up the provided spare beds without feeling cramped! The kitchen is very well equipped with plenty of pots/pans/plates/cups/glasses for every occasion. They provided tea and coffee, salt pepper and general cleaning supplies (I know have not always been given since covid). The living area again is very spacious, with comfortable couches and even throws to snuggle down with! Although we are not one for TV and internet when away they were the best I have seen when away if that is your thing. The internet was very fast and streaming services available on the TV (although it is quite a small tele). The Apartment is a great base for exploring. Literally downstairs is the local street with shops, pubs and cafes, still very quiet at night though! There is a sainsburies and coop writhing a 5 min walk. As there are 2 flights of slippery metal stairs to the entrance this may not be the best accommodation for you if you are bad on your feet and need to bring in a pram. We managed perfectly fine with 3 small children though! Definitely recommend and hoping to return ourselves!

  • "We were honoured to be the very first guests at this beautiful, spotless and very spacious apartment."

    Everything had been thought of, from a spanking new all singing/dancing coffee machine to pen and notepad, to rubber gloves. Excellent tea, coffee and shortbread biscuits welcomed us, as did Max who was delightful. She and Neil were in touch during our stay to ensure all was going smoothly – which it was. The apartment is right by the pedestrian precinct in St Marychurch which has a fishmonger, butcher, coffee shops and restaurants – plenty of choice for cooking at home or a picnic. The information pack gives helpful information on places to visit and eat. We loved walking to stunning Babbacome Downs and our favourite eatery was Babbacombe Bay Café, particularly their cream tea. If you’re visiting during the summer it’s advisable to book ahead for attractions as we missed out on a few including the caves which were booked up, and only got into Compton Castle (recommended) on a cancellation. We spent one of our two sunny days at Broadsands Beach which has a great café run with pride, and the other day on the glorious, if incongruously-named Blackpool Sands near Dartmouth which has plenty of parking and cleaner water. We highly recommend this lovely apartment which has no negatives: even the noise from the pub opposite could be shut out easily by closing the windows. Many thanks to Max and Neil for a really wonderful stay.
