Charming family holiday home for 10!

Offering an idyllic setting within easy reach of Torquay, groups of 10 can easily enjoy an exclusive seaside stay within the lavish surroundings of this modernised period retreat.

Approached by a flight of steps with handrail from the private street-level parking, the large Victorian semi known as 'Chelston House' enjoys an elevated location overlooking the large triangular green in Chelston, with a pretty front garden inviting guests' to its entrance.

The elegant charm of the period property has been retained throughout, whilst being further enhanced by a luxurious boutique-style interior. Welcoming well-behaved pets and offering versatile sleeping arrangements, the holiday retreat provides the perfect year-round choice for accommodating large families and groups of friends.

On entering the Victorian gem, a regal-style hallway greets guests with impressionist wood flooring leading on to the beautifully-presented ground floor reception rooms.

The sumptuous drawing room provides a luxurious venue in which to socialise and unwind, with a bright and welcoming calmness to make one feel at home. A restful palette of soft biscuit and cream conveyed in the plush sofas, fine furnishings and quaility carpet, fittingly features below an ornate crystal chandelier for a tranquil and graceful setting.

The fireplace offers an inviting ambience in the cooler months whilst the flat-screen free view TV provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy a favourite show.

Leading on from the elegant drawing room, guests are welcomed into a generously proportioned country-style kitchen diner.

Offering the perfect accompaniment to a 5* stay, the luxury-equipped kitchen and dining area provides a relaxed setting in which to enjoy home cooked meals.

The ambient warmth from the open fireplace and the pretty garden views also offers a romantic year-round backdrop for dinner parties.

Perfectly complementing the luxury kitchen diner, a pretty courtyard table & chairs outside offers a tranquil intimate setting in which to enjoy a morning coffee, afternoon tea or a sheltered summertime meal.

Guests looking to unwind at the end of the day with a favourite movie can enjoy the informal refuge of the modern garden room. Furnished with a large comfy sofa, TV, DVD player and CD player, the room is finished in an equally stylish tone, and enjoys tranquil views of the sunny garden and also has an warm electric fire to keep warm by.

The ground floor of the holiday home further comprises a spacious library guest bedroom, ideal for accommodating a couple. Furnished with a beautiful king size bed and decorated in a delightful highland theme, the room offers a peaceful and classic retreat. The luxury bedroom also features easy access to a ground floor shower room & WC.

From the hallway, a flight of carpeted stairs leads to the sumptuous upper floors of the holiday retreat.

A suitably grand master suite provides a luxurious interior in which to replenish and revive the senses. The French-style bedroom is furnished with an ornate king size bed, perfect for savouring a guilt-free lie in. The lavish room is further complemented by painted Chateaux style bedside tables, a chest of drawers, a dressing table and wardrobe. A luxury fitted contemporary en-suite shower room is also provided for guest's optimum comfort.

A second equally-spacious bedroom to the first floor provides a stylish retreat for two further guests. Furnished in a pretty and classic French-style, guests can enjoy relaxing to the beautiful king size bed or can relish in a quiet moment by the front facing window. The bright and restful interior offers a calming haven for couples after a busy day of sightseeing and is conveniently accompanied by a large, chic family bathroom next door, fitted with a bath tub and separate shower cubicle.

A flight of stairs leads to the child-friendly upper floor of the holiday home. Beautifully presented, the bright and spacious fourth bedroom offers a charming ambience, and has been thoughtfully finished in a playful nautical twist. Ideally suited for sleeping ship-worthy crews of 4, the coastal-themed bedroom features a set of bunk beds and two single beds. The inviting interior allows children to easily relax, enjoy a favourite TV show or a game away from the grown-ups. The bedroom also features a contemporary fitted en-suite bathroom, for extra convenience.

Premium quality bed linen and towels are provided to all of the bedrooms, alongside in-house laundry facilities, which can conveniently be found to the separate utility room off the kitchen.

The immaculately-presented interior is further complemented by an enclosed back garden. Offering a peaceful haven in which children and pets can play, as well providing the perfect venue for alfresco dinner parties, the mature garden is a welcome feature for any holiday stay.
