Wonderful house with amazing views. Everything a family could need and extremely dog-friendly! We love our privacy and this house was ideal. Amazing house, Robin, felt immediate bond with this terrific man. Would love to come back again next year!Karen Manton and Family - Broom, Warwickshire - 1st October 2016
Great location facing the beach, the house was lovely and clean and idea for our situation, 3 bedroom with 2 great en-suites which was just what we were looking for with taking my mother away with us she had her own room and en-suite. Good size property for family. Courtyard not really in the sun would have been perfect if over looking the beach. Good value for money, parking really is on the road it was ok. Would definitely stay there again.Denise Nuttall, meadfoot - 1st September 2016
Having stayed in a lot of houses in the area, my family and I think that the is the nicest. Lacation, beach, shops, all great. Thank you so much for making us so welcome.Michelle, Lancs - 1st September 2016
Lovely traditional house with beautiful views, helpful owner and charming neighbour.joyce ptaszek, montrose - 1st July 2016
Charming House, lovely views, next door neighbour helpful with recycling. Only one request that re-cycling bin & bin collection day would be useful. Thanks for the pudding and good luck with the cooking project Robin!Ptaszek Family, Scotland - 1st July 2016
We had a wonderful week staying at Henrys Beach house with my Husband, Mum and two Children. The house had everything we needed and was only a moments walk from the beach. The house has superb views across the bay. My husband enjoyed a snorkel around Meadfoot and went fishing in the evening. Lots to do around the area but you need a car to get about as Torquey is about a 30 minute walk away. Ok to do without children in tow!! Would highly recommend staying here.Laura Maxted, Broadstairs - 1st June 2016
Stayed here for just over a week with my son and daughters. Absolutely beautiful place! Perfect location, what a nice stay. Would definitely stay here again. If you're after a nice breakfast ~ try Clipper Café in Shaldon. Thanks so much ~ see you next year.Bows family, Yorshire - 1st June 2016
What a wonderful house with beautiful sea views. Everything we wanted and much more. We have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Henry's Beach House is central to some beautiful places. Highly recommended. We will be returning next year. Thank you so much Robin xxxThe Andrews Family, Herts - 1st May 2016
Perfect holiday home and location very close to the beach and other facilities. The house is large, roomy, light and very well furnished. There's also a perfect washing/grooming room with a shower for your dog should you need it. To the front right of the house is a large common, ideal for walking your dog on the way up to the shops and pub. Front left takes you down to the beach and the road to Torquay, which is just over the hill. Walking around the area is great, for example the coastal path. To top it off, on arrival we were met by Robin, the owner, who met us with Bread rolls, biscuits, butter and milk. We had a super time and Henry's starts our list of where to go again.John Hale, Germany - 1st May 2016
A wonderful stay! Second time we've been here for a week over Easter, 5 of us plus a dog! Beautiful property and location. We'll be back again! Thank you!The Berridge-Burleys, London - 1st April 2016
We've had a lovely week and were lucky with the weather. Love exploring Devon. Thanks Robin for the various recommendations, Angels in Babbacombe serve a fantastic cream tea! It's lovely to be able to walk onto the coastal path straight from the house. Lovely house, lovely area! Thank you!Sandy, Paul, Izzy, Lauren and Oliver, Warwick - 1st March 2016
Lovely house, great walks! Thanks Robin for meet and greet; see you again!The Dokics, Bath - 1st March 2016
Wonderful time, excellent house, suited our needs perfectly!Sam G, Yorkshire - 1st March 2016
Wonderful stay; everything we needed and more! Just lovely to stay somewhere that feels like a home and not a show home; plenty of space for Frank (standard poodle) who adored being able to leave the door and go straight to the green or the beach. We came for the opening of our son's fish and chip business in Torquay 'Salt Water' and so will definately be returning and would love to come back here. Thank you so, so much!Di, Guy and Ella (and Frank!), Plymouth - 1st November 2015
Stayed here on the occasin of the launch of 'Saltwater' Torquay. Best fish and chips in town! A must on your list to try. Accommodation was very comfortable and homely, lacking nothing. Thank you!Maaz Family, Plymouth, Devon - 1st November 2015
Beautiful sea views and a comfortable stay. Thank you.(For lunch/early dinner, Wellies in Wellswood is highly recommended!)The Kehoe Family, Saddleworth - 1st October 2015
Lovely house, great location, Devon is wonderful.Will return!The Martins, Shropshire - 1st September 2015
What a lovely time we've had. Fabulous house and location. We've been really comfortable here and would definitely come back. So much to see and do that we'd never be bored! We love Devon and cannot wait to come back.Carol, Graham, Lucy and Ian, Horsham and Bromley - 1st September 2015
Lovely house and lovely location. We wish we could wake up to these views every morning! Perfect for our family and dogs. Even the weather smiled on us!Mark and Bernadette Sims, Surrey - 1st August 2015
We've had a lovely week. It would be great if we could visit the place again next year. A great location and amazing views.Jamie Barton and Family, Harpenden - 1st August 2015
We have had a brilliant holiday here in Devon and your beach house has made it extra special, We have been very comfortable and made ourselves at home. We will return here, the views from the house are very memorable. Thank you Robin, see you again.The O'Callaghans, Barnsley - 1st July 2015
Thank you kindly for your lovely house in idyllic settings. We have enjoyed first time here in Torquay and would definitely come again and stay in Henry's beach house. The dachshunds have walked their little feet of, so it was lovely to find that the living room window opens up completely, so I can get some sun whilst they rest and the hubby and daughter go out and play. So sad to leave, could easily have spent another week here! Thank you... Highly recommended and will promote you at home!Another add for the lovely neighbour next door absolute sweethearts! Could happily take the gent home, if only every home had such loveliness!Louise, Antony and Daisy, Stoke on Trent - 1st July 2015
It was a wonderful time here in Henry's beach house. Amazing view, great weather and the house was perfect for us for 2 days.Merten. Hannover, Germany. - 1st June 2015

Fabulous house, spectacular views, spacious & great facilities. Overall a perfect holiday, thank you!Louise & family, Warwickshire - 1st September 2014
An amazing house ~ great size, light and spacious with gorgeous en-suite. Views across the beach is a beautiful sight to wake up to each morning. Robin has been very helpful to ensure this has been an enjoyable holiday for the whole family ~ thank you.Lee, Lorraine & family, Plumstead, London - 1st August 2014
The house is newly kitted out and is superb. Spacious and all the facilities you need for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The location is the real attraction as it's just 15 minutes walk into Torquay, just a minute walk from the beach and there are some lovely views from the rooms across Torbay. You can even hear the waves at night if you leave the windows open! A delightful place that's excellent value for money.Rob, Catherine, Asuka and Oli from London - 1st August 2014
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Henry's Beach House. Perfect for us. Stunning views!, thanks!Kathryn & family, Essex - 1st August 2014
