Torquay is an ideal holiday spot with endless places to visit, but it wouldn't have been the same without retiring back to Windchimes afterwards. Lovely hosts and treats. Couldn't have asked for more."

The West Country 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.

"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
