Couldn't have asked for more."

About this location

The English Riviera region

Windchimes Hayloft is situated in a really leafy area of Torquay. Torquay itself is located on The English Riviera, which has one of the warmest climates in the UK, as demonstrated by the figs, plums, pears and other fruit that grow well in the pretty communal garden in which the property is based.

"Great location but very small"

Windchimes is described as small and small it is! We were both really surprised at the lack of headroom in the bedroom, I am 5'2" and I could barely stand up, finding that I even had to lay … More

Thank you so much for your candid review. Windchimes Hayloft, is converted from an original hayloft. It has beams, and low headroom in the romantic mezzanine bedroom,which is accessed by a steep open tread staircase, so is indeed not suited to those with mobility problems. But it is not musty! The shower room does not have a window, but has a fan, activated by the switch for the overhead lights, to keep it well ventilated. The cottage has an insulated roof, floor and walls to keep it warm and cosy. In hot weather to avoid getting over warm, one needs to open the windows as the cottage is south facing. The cottage is extremely quirky and filled with extra touches. It is located adjacent to our home, as indicated, and the garden is shared with us, so those wanting more privacy may prefer a cottage with it's own garden, which we appreciate. Our cute cottage is very tiny. This is reflected in the price. Everything in it is of good quality. We welcome our guests with a bottle of bubbly and home made cake. Quietly situated, the cottage is within walking distance of the town, harbour and local beaches. Torquay is built on seven hills, so sensible shoes for getting around on foot is a good option. The cottage is very much suited to walkers, and those wanting a quiet break. We very much welcome the candid comments - it helps people to make an informed decision about whether Windchimes Hayloft is for them. We've had many many lovely comments about the cottage, and several people booking return trips, and are truly not offended by the remarks. The age of those visiting the cottage ranges from 18 to 70 - indicating how fitness levels have changed for the better, which is brilliant. We clearly indicate in the property information, that the cottage is located, Gite style, next to our home. Windchimes Hayloft is an upmarket, quirky character cottage, offered at a reasonable price, to reflect its tiny size. We will review the property information, to make sure that this is clear to our guests - almost all of whom, have loved and appreciated it, with many wishing to return. Thanks again for your comments.

"A beautiful property placed in a lovely garden."

We really enjoyed our stay, The owners are really friendly and helpful. When we arrived there were homemade muffins and wine as a welcome gift. Fresh flowers on the windowsill.
The property had everything we needed from fluffy towels and bathrobes, wifi and other home comforts. It is a ten minute walk to the town and harbour. Plenty to do in walking distant and lots of great places to eat out.

Thank You Carol for your kind review. We are truly delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Windchimes Hayloft, and appreciated our cosy cottage, and the South facing garden. We very much hope to see you both again in the future. All Best Wishes.

"A lovely restful, romantic cottage as a base for exploring beautiful Devon."

This cottage is very cute and compact with everything you need to properly chill out whilst enjoying the stunning seascape of the South Devon coast. It is nestled in a picturesque garden and very clos… More

Dear Amy; Thank You for your very accurate and lovely review. We are delighted that you and your husband enjoyed your Honeymoon at Windchimes Hayloft. We have added lots of thoughtful little touches to Windchimes, to make it a comfortable, cosy and romantic place for couples, and for walkers and those wanting a special break in Torquay, which is quietly situated, yet within walking distance of a variety of places to eat, and of course the beach and coastal walks. Thanks again for your review, and we hope to see you both again in the future.

"Never to return"

One thing I must say,NEVER pay in advance to this accommodation.I could go on and on but we travelled all over the UK for nearly 6weeks, this was our second stay.Owners are lovely and make you welcome… More

In the years we have been letting Windchimes, this is the first time we have had such a damning response. We ask readers to look at the pictures of our property, which clearly show the steep open tread steps up to the rather gorgeous mezzanine bedroom. The property is tastefully decorated throughout, and includes very upmarket touches, such as high thread count linen, and good quality crockery. Additional touches include complimentary dressing gowns, and wine and home cooked muffins on arrival, together with tea.

Yes, we did ask for the payment on arrival. We normally insist on the balance being paid in full, a month before check in - as is normal. Some holiday lets insist on full payment six weeks in advance. The only reason we said that it was OK to pay on arrival, was because the guests asked so nicely, explaining a personal difficulty. In the UK it is polite to pay when asked, and it was with some embarrassment that I needed to ask. Twice.

It is extremely unfortunate that the guests did not appear to have looked at the photo's - and the fact that it is stated very clearly that the property is NOT suited to those with mobility problems.

I repeat that the cottage is very upmarket, and we have had so many positive comments from past guests - who live both in the UK and other countries, including Europe and Australia. This is the first time we have had such comments, and I accept that one cannot please everyone, as everyone has different tastes. Almost all other guests who have been aged between 20 and 70 - have said how much they enjoyed their stay at Windchimes, and that they would recommend it to friends and family, and would definitely visit again.

"A Little Gem"

Had a most enjoyable week at Windchimes. Property small, but perfectly formed! Very clean and well thought out and fixtures, fittings and linen of a high standard. Jacquie and Keven were ideal hosts -… More

Dear Anthony; Thank You very much for your kind comments. We look forward to welcoming you to Windchimes Haylot again in the future.
