  • "Beautiful house!"

    Great location in a gorgeous little village. Car park down the road was very cheap as we were worried about the parking. Bought food in nearby Darts farm and made lovely meals in the very functional kitchen. Visited Lympstone Manor for a 40th birthday meal. Lovely stay, just wish it had been longer!

    Dear Thea, Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, and we agree that Topsham definitely deserves at least a week! We look forward to welcoming you back in future. John & Mary Tregellas Property Owner

  • "Very spacious property centrally located for town centre quay and railway station."

    All the amenities you would hope for. Small but private sitting out area to the rear of the property. Good selection of old reference books etc.

  • "If the description says twin beds in top room then the property manager should not say that their instructions are to leave it as a king !"

  • "A lovely cottage in a beautiful hamlet with many shops, pubs and restaurants."

    The cottage had everything we wanted and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Parking is problematic anywhere in Topsham but the public car park is a very short walk away. We will definitely stay here again.

  • "The fridges had broken shelves and were not big enough for a property of this size."

    There was too much 'clutter' around.... I'd keep things simple and remove a lot of the furniture and extra stuff everywhere. The large master bedroom was lovely and light, but the top room was quite hot and the smaller single bed on its own had an uncomfy mattress. The bottle of wine was a nice touch, and the road was lovely, but we wouldn't rebook this particular property. The weather was kind, so we had a lovely time as we were out a lot, and went cycling on the brilliant nearby paths. Also... I wouldn't bombard the client with emails before their visit... just one simple email with key info is enough.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and were able to make the best of the nice weather. 24 Victoria Road is our own home away from home, and the wide selection of books, games and toys creates a homely atmosphere which is appreciated by many of our regular guests. We confirm the small issue with the fridge shelving has been resolved and we hope you'll return to visit us in future. Property Owner

  • "Advertised with a cinema room which was locked and unavailable for use."

    Games room good use of space and enjoyed the table tennis. No cues for pool table though. Not enough comfortable seeking for 5 people in the lounge, don’t think that dining table chairs are suitable or comfortable for the lounge. Superb location though.

  • "The home was very clean on arrival."

    The issue re parking/ dropping off holiday luggage could have been better explained. Cinema room not in use explained but also games room everything taken out except ping pong. Hoover did not work. A great location accessible to lots of lovely places. You may wish to advise families booking required for meals out well in advance to save disappointment. I would say prior to arrival. Also ferry not running. We had a lovely holiday considering these difficult times and challenges thank you.

  • "Very nice well appointed cottage."

    Fully equipped kitchen. Great shower pressure. Comfortable beds. However, the second toilet needs to be mentioned that it is outside, because when the temperature is almost freezing and it’s raining, the toilet is not accessible. That can result in a queue for the combined bathroom toilet room. Similarly, an electric clothes drier would be useful in winter as it is too cold to wash and air dry clothes. Additionally, the booking.com description needs to be updated to reflect that there is not parking at the cottage, nor is there parking on street. There is parking at the nearby carpark. Vehicle access is very very tricky with a narrow tight street.

  • "Yes! It is important to stress that the property was clean, well equipped and in an peaceful, quiet location near essential amenities."

    However - as an older couple we found some degree of challenge. We could NOT use the bath and the show was very awkward and slippery. The stairs over 3 levels required caution. We avoided the basement facilities! I'm not sure - from our personal experience - that this property is totally suitable for anyone with even limited mobility issues? However - we enjoyed our holiday and made the most of this beautiful area. We would not return but can see how this would be a wonderful base for a family holiday! Not for us - but can understand the enthusiasm of other.

    Thank you very much for your feedback, we're really pleased to hear that you liked the house and most importantly, had a happy and enjoyable holiday. We're sorry that you found the layout of the house a bit of a challenge due to your mobility difficulties. We'd like to stress that the house is over four floors, which means it won't be suitable for everyone. We try very hard to make sure the description is accurate to help you pick the right property for you and for anyone else who may be considering the property, please don't hesitate to ask us with any questions you may have as we'll be delighted to help!

    The Exe Estuary cycle track is also on the doorstep and bike hire is available locally. The property had everything anyone could wish for and more, truely a home from home.

  • "The location of the property at 24 Victoria Road was so handy to the town, literally less than five minutes stroll to the nearest pub/restaurant!"

    The choice of eating out was fabulous from traditional English fayre to a very good Indian restaurant. All in all, I would thoroughly recommend this property and location to any one looking for a relazing break in Devon ...it is also a superb touring base. ..

  • "The house was really interesting and very well equipped and generously stocked."

    It had really fast broadband. It is conveniently located to walk to the railway station, small supermarket, interesting shops, restaurants/ pubs and pleasant estuary walks (including the RSPB hides). Travel by car, train or bus takes you to lots of lovely areas. Sadly there is no garden (but there is a small outside area with chairs and a table that catches the sun at times), and no parking other than finding a local space of paying for the car park. A great place to relax.

  • "This house is utterly delightful."

    Well proportioned, elegantly furnished and sensibly equipped and situated in a quiet, pretty area. The listing forwarded us that access by car was difficult, so we didn't bother trying. The nearest car park is only a few minutes away and costs only £2.50 for 24 hours. We also managed to find a free space on the road nearby. Our main reason for going was to explore the vastly improved cycle paths around the estuary and the house is well placed for these and also for the rail station if you fancy a car free day in Exeter.

The property

Located on a peaceful pedestrian lane in Topsham is this Regency end-of-terrace townhouse.

Grade II listed and rambling over four floors, it is a spacious, fun home for families or anyone who wants to enjoy a car-free holiday.

On the ground floor, snuggle up in the sitting room with its open fire and arch leading you through to the dining room where you can tinkle the ivories on the piano.

The kitchen is well equipped for preparing family meals and has a handy door to throw open to the courtyard.

Head down steep winding stairs from the dining room to a fabulously fun area consisting of a games room with toys and games for all ages and a cinema room where you can store drinks in the fridge and break open the popcorn.

The bedrooms are spread over the first and second floors, with a lovely big double and vast bathroom on the lower floor and two cosy rooms under the eaves at the top of the house.

Outside, at the back, is a little walled courtyard with seats and garden WC from another era.

To the front you have a small enclosed garden with handy shed for storing your bikes and beach gear.

Wander just 350 yards from this conservation area and you will find yourself on the spot for the shops, pubs and restaurants in the town centre, the estuary with its brilliant bird watching opportunities and the ferry to join the Exe cycle path with your bikes.

You can walk and cycle all around this lovely area, play golf, take boat trips and visit the splendid cathedral city of Exeter.

24 Victoria Road is an ideal base for fun and relaxation and touring the area.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
