We had a wonderful time at Blue Harbour Cottage.. Everything you need to feel comfortable is there. The location of the cottage is perfect for the harbour, the parks, the town and the beaches. There are new contemporary pubs and restaurants as well as the oldest pub in Torquay right on your doorstep. Torquay is also a perfect base for the beautiful walks and sights of Dartmoor and the river Dart, especially if you bring your dog. You can visit quiet beaches with a picnic, paddle board, snorkle, kayak and swim. The choice is yours how active you wish to be.

One of our best X-mas ever! Perfect cottage, - nice, warm, super clean. Our host was the most generous host we ever had - and we had a lot of hots in our life. When we arrived we found wonderful x-mass decoration already, a cake and a bottle of Champagne. The whole time we were in contact with our host and he gave us lots of infos about the region and what to do. We had a great time! Thanks Peter!

A most beautiful and quaint cottage.. Decorated with a lot of TLC and equiped with everything you need and more! Close to fantastic places to explore, surrounded by very nice pubs, restaurants and shopping facilities. Public parking nearby. Well, what more to say what other might not have said yet? What to say to people who are looking at this property? YES, book it. You won't regret it. It is a home from home!!!

The cottage does not look anything like the photos it needs some tlc.. The outside requires some serious sprucing up, the garden furniture is all rusty and tatty and the so called garden is just a bed of dead plants and weeds.

The cottage was lovely, very traditional and keeping in with the surrounding properties.. The stairs are a little steep so perhaps not the best if you are unsteady on your feet or not very able bodied.

Great cottage fantastic location not a problem for us but there are some steep steps up to the cottage this could cause a problem for a older person would definitely use again owner was very helpful left a bottle of prosecco for use nice touch

Photo of the property is totally misleading! This cottage is located at the back of a restaurant! When the restaurant is active the vent from the kitchen pumps cooking smells into the outside space, this also means you can't open a window if you are indoors☹️ The cottage itself is nice and very quirky, however the curtains are paper thin and don't contain enough fabric so be prepared for some extremely early mornings.

Lovely cottage, central to all amenities in Torquay but situated in a quiet spot away from the noise of traffic.. Good access to internet. Very clean, well equipped and dog friendly. There are steps leading up to the cottage and very steep wooden stairs to upper floor, which may be a problem for some. There is a short walk to the nearest car park in Meadfoot Road and to a grassy area in Torwood Gardens for exercising a dog. We had a superb holiday and the cottage made a homely and comfortable base for our day trips to all the various beauty spots in and around Torbay and Dartmoor.

Cottage was beautiful and right in the centre of all amenities.. Very clean and the beds were so comfy and the prosecco and fudge was a lovely gesture. Will definitely be back

My dog Henry and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the sweet Blue Harbour Cottage, which was well located - walks could start straight from the cottage arriving at the South West Coast Path in a few minutes or good public transportation could be taken from a bus stop a few minutes’ walk away.. The cottage had everything one could need for a week by the coast, including a log burner which was handy in December. The cottage is set back from Parkhill Road, which made it very quiet. The host was available to answer any questions and even allowed us a later than usual check out given our train was in the afternoon and even offered to bring more logs as I didn’t have a car to transport them. I would definitely recommend Blue Harbour Cottage!

We had a lovely holiday.. The cottage is lovely and ideally situated close to amenities. The steps to the property may be an issue for some people, I would have struggled with our pushchair had my husband not been with me. Just something to bear in mind. The cottage itself is very true to the pictures on the website. Very shabby chic and beautiful. It welcomes pets which is nice, although we didn’t take ours in the end. The neighbours have access through the garden to their property, but this wasn’t an issue as we were out most days. The landlord went above and beyond: leaving milk in the fridge (along with a bottle of bubbly), texting to let us know that the property was ready; letting us know of any issues left behind by the previous holidaymakers and telling us not to rush to leave as no one else was booked in that day. Thank you so much, we will be booking again in the future.

We had a great time, the cottage is walking distance to everything.. It had everything we needed except the towels. One small thin towel per person wasn't enough. We ended up buying a couple towels. It was very clean inside. Outside could do with a bit of a tidy. The cottage is not disable friendly. If you have bad knees or other difficulties getting around I wouldn't recommend this cottage, it has steep stairs leading to the cottage and inside the cottage. The wood fire was fantastic and the bed was warm and cozy. You can't park in front on the street. The public car park is around the corner not far from the cottage. You have to go on line to purchase a parking permit. We paid £35 for 6 days which wasn't a big deal, but would think about it in the future. The cottage has everything you need for your stay. It doesn't catch the sun during the day so if you enjoy a coffee in the morning sun this isn't for you. Thank you Blue Harbour Cottage for your hospitality. The champagne and clotted cream fudge was a nice touch.

The cottage was in a great location 2 minutes walk from the town.. It was everything we needed for a base to explore Torquay and surrounding areas.The owner of the cottage was lovely. He had already gifted us a bottle of wine ,then on finding out it was my birthday and wedding anniversary got us another bottle and some tasty fudge. Great holiday . Look forward to returning.

Cottage overlooking a restaurant. cooking smells every evening. Dishes being clanked.No garden only shared courtyard.overgrown shrubs.tatty mouldy garden benches. Not suitable for people with mobility issues.The most uncomfortable sofa EVER. Had wooden posts inside it.Every time you sat on it you would hurt yourself.No privacy what so ever with the next cottage .Left holiday 3 days early it was that unsuitable .
Mr Forster

The owner was extremely helpful, freindly and considerate, by leaving milk tea,coffee and prossecco on arrival.. The cottage was very well maintained and comfortable I would not hesitate in recommending this quaint fishermans cottage to others. The location was also good for access to the harbour and amenities.

Lovely cottage everything you could want or need, great location.. Owner went out hi s way to check we were ok or if we needed anything which we really appreciated. Would definitely go back again we had a fantastic week.

Disappointing.. ..Had no garden.shared entrance.no privacy.The sofa was as uncomfortable as the Victorian sleeping bench for the poor.We were forever banging ourselves on the hidden planks of wood in it.scruffy entrance ,dead leaves / shrubs.mouldy sitting left in front. We left after 4 days as the shared entrance was forever being left open.Had we stayed would of lost our dog on the road outside.The property is above the kitchens of the restaurant so all evenings had cooking smells/dishes clanking till late.Woken most mornings by seagulls on opposite roof at 4.30 as one neigboour regular feeds them.Could not relax the whole time.However the cottage is decorated lovely.

A very lovely cottage has every thing you need for your stay owner left tea ,coffee, milk for when you arrive and a very nice bottle of fizz ,made you feel very welcome , also left lots of information on places and things to do on your holiday everywhere we went the people where very helpful and friendly ..

Lovely character filled cottage.. Lots of attention to detail inside. The best double bed we've ever slept on in any holiday home! It is nicely off the main busy front too. It would have been a higher score but the only things that weren't perfect was the walkthrough garden (although the neighbour was very pleasant); and loading and unloading can be problematic as the traffic warden is very keen. Thank you for a lovely break.

I was a really nice cottage in a great location but the garden was not secure as another family had right of way through it and this meant I could not leave my dog alone there while I did things in the house.. The house also had pop corn in the some of the rooms which the dog loved but we did not appreciate and although the 35 pounds for parking was clearly mentioned on the description we had searched for cottages with parking and had not realized the extra cost until after we had booked.. I would recommend this cottage for couples without young children or dogs.
Mrs Pembroke

Perfect little cottage in a convenient location.. Easy to explore Torquay on foot. Felt comfortable having our dog with us. Felt so welcome we would definitely stay again.

This cottage might not be suitable for people with mobility issues as the access is via an uneven path and steps which is unlit at night.. The cottage is comfortable and nicely furnished though. It is close to the harbour and shops with plenty of places to eat nearby. Because of the location of the cottage behind a restaurant there's no view to speak of if you like that kind of thing.

Lovely, homely,comfortable cottage.. Everything you needed to hand.Very good location,only 5 mins walk into Torquay town. Would stay there again.
Mrs Shaw

As we walked up to the cottage the hand rail was loose, and we got into the cottage the stairs were wooden and very steep i was so worried about falling and had to go one step at a time, and almost slipped from the bathroom stairs.. although the sofa looked very nice at first glance, it was so low even the table was higher, if you are have dexterity problems this is not good, i sat most of the time on a dinning room chair. as the sofa was very hard to get up from. no clothes airier. DVD player would have been nice, (we had to go out and buy one) outside the garden area needed attention.

I would have liked a more comfortable settee in the property that we stayed but in general I was quite happy with the accommodation..

The Cottage has access via an alley way and the view of the cottage is from the alley way.. The cottage had nice modern features and beds were clean and comfortable but the floors were not clean when we arrived (dog hair under sofa and under rug and rug not hoovered properly). It was a good central location however parking was difficult (although did manage to find on road free parking for entire stay 10 minutes walk away). The sofa in the living room was not comfortable and had a hard, hidden, wooden post in the middle of the seats which all of us hurt ourselves on at some point during the holiday. Overall small cottage in good, central location but improvements to seating and floor cleaning would have been desirable.

Beautiful cottage, decorated to a high standard, quiet location but easy to get to the harbour, contained all mod cons for a home from home experience.. Perfect relaxing holiday - will go back.
