Torwood is a traditional Victorian Villa with a wonderful light and airy feel. The house is decorated with charm and character, retaining many traditional features including wonderful high ceilings, working fireplaces and double doors opening from all the reception rooms straight out to the garden with sea views beyond.

We had a family weekend- 12 of us. The house is architecturally beautiful, fantastic location and very big. However the house is in need of a total renovation , the water supply and pressure is totally inadequate, the soft furnishings are dirty, dusty and uncomfortable. We also discovered that we had overpaid by booking with the wrong agent! Booking direct with island holidays is much more reasonable!!

Thank -you for your review. I am aware that the interior does need renovation work, but as you can appreciate a house of this size will be a considerable time before everything has been completed. Once the renovation work has been completed it is likely that the price will be revised to reflect the condition of the property. With all products there is always a price difference depending on where you purchase it. Island Holiday Homes would like to assist you for any future holidays.

A lovely time had by all ages

A lovely secluded house big enough for our family without being on top of one another. The pool was a big hit with the kids.



Wonderful situation

This house has the Wow factor when you walk in - beautiful hall, rooms, garden and views; pool large, clean and well-heated; good pool/snooker table and some beautiful old pieces of furniture. Some of the rooms were lovely and in some respects it was very well-equipped e.g. crockery, glasses, two fridge freezers, washing and drying machines etc.

However, we felt there were a number of issues that let it down that on reflection suggest a general lack of time spent cleaning thoroughly and checking all amenities. The mattresses in the bunk room were really uncomfortable for adults - I had to pull the single bed mattress off after the first night and change it for the one on the top bunk which was slightly better but still uncomfortable. They felt poor quality and old - we were an adult party booking and using all bedrooms - it wasn't suggested that this was a room suitable for children only? Some of the rooms (especially the pink bedroom) looked dowdy with stained curtains and chair, ceiling light not working and cobwebs in corners. The back kitchen where the pots and pans were stored had very dirty shelves with dead flies on; many chairs throughout the house were stained (including large chaise longue in the double bedroom with basin) and some wallpaper was peeling off; the lock on our bathroom was broken; one shower was so slow it only trickled; one toilet (on the stairs) had a poor flush; many lightbulbs throughout the house needed replacing (should have been checked?); outdoor bench by pool rotten and broken with one rusty nail sticking up (that my daughter sat on!); broken glass by greenhouse and when it rained (which was torrential I admit) we had significant water coming in between the conservatory and breakfast room.

I would recommend the property but with the proviso that these issues were addressed - as currently I didn't feel it was good value for money unfortunately - but had great potential with a good clean and thorough maintenance check.
