Self-catering perfection - highly recommend a stay at The White House
Having not long returned from a week's stay at The White House, I have nothing but praise for this superb two-bedroom house situated in a quiet residential uphill area of Torquay. The house is bright, spacious and the kitchen is equipped to a very high standard. A welcome hamper basket on arrival packed with goodies was most appreciated. The tropical gardens with water features and heated outdoor pool are a real bonus. I really felt truly amazed at the beauty of all the flowering exotic plants, ferns and giant palm trees.. Paul and Linda are a delightful couple on hand should you need assistance and recommendations, otherwise leaving you alone to enjoy your holiday and privacy. The house offers a large secluded gravel yard at the back with ample space to enjoy sitting outside with barbeque for use. There is private parking space although we didn't bring/hire a car this trip. Everywhere is walkable and the short cut down to the centre takes less than 10 mins. We will definitely return for a relaxing holiday just as soon as we can. Highly recommend.

Lovely stay
Lovely place to stay, thoughtful welcome hamper with lots of goodies. Kitchen well equipped with everything you need, comfortable lounge to chill out after a days sightseeing, beautiful area surrounding the house and within reach of many beautiful areas, don’t miss Oddicombe beach or berry head. Lovely helpful friendly owners esp helpful as I thought I’d left something and they went to great lengths to find it needless to say it turned up at home! All in all a relaxing restful place to stay and if we visit the area again will definitely stay there.

Lovely accommodation, within walking distance to Torquay Harbour Area.
This is a lovely 2 Bedroom house, attached to a wonderful Bed and Breakfast, with beautiful gardens and Heated Swimming Pool. It has a parking space right outside the door, our car stayed there all week, as all the Amenities were in walking distance, Wonderful bars and restaurants close by. The Public Transport was excellent from Torquay, Busses were frequent and the Train Station was a Walkable distance away. We would have no hesitation of returning.

Great central self contained holiday let
This is a great place for a family to make the most of Torquay. It’s centrally located but far enough out to make it peaceful. Linda is always on hand if needed to help make the most of the holiday. The place was clean and tidy and we even got a hamper full of goodies on arrival. First class

The White House, Carey Court
What a lovely place The White House at Carey Court in Torquay proved to be. The accommodation had all the necessary amenities and the beds were very comfortable. The highlight of our stay was using the heated outside pool and enjoying the tranquility of the beautifully kept tropical gardens. If we return to Torquay we willl definitely stay again or try out the guest house!

SCW out and about
Fully equipped to high standard with every amenity catered for, and a nice welcome hamper, the access is a little steep and confined and while the walk down the front is easy, the uphill return requires a certain level of fitness. There does seem to be a measure of uncertainty as to the name of the cottage (Palm Court)? Anyway a comfortable stay in near luxury

Hi, Hope that you are all well & that your trip home was a good one ..Glad that you enjoyed your stay here in The White House. The name can confuse but only because for some reason , known only to themselves ,the agency that we had been using likes to change the names of the properties that it has listed, no idea why ???? The area is hilly as you say . The word Torre means hill hence Torquay. Good job that we have lots of very reasonably priced taxi firms here in the Bay for that end of the day trip back up the hill !!

Dream holiday in the most beautiful guest house in idyllic surroundings.
Me and my family, Liz, James and Jack had the pleasure to stay in this beautiful guest house for a week's holiday. Upon arrival after a 6 hour journey, we were met by Linda, one of the very friendly owners of the guest house, and we couldn't have been happier with our surroundings. The guest house is like a home from home with everything you could possibly need to hand. We didn't have to ask for anything for the whole week. A lovely hamper had been left for us with tea and coffee, scones and jam and marmalade, breads and granola, which was perfect after such a long journey. The guest house was spotless, with a kitchen including a washer/dryer, dishwasher, oven, kettle, toaster and fridge freezer. It was spacious and bright throughout, with a private courtyard, beautiful bedrooms both with ensuite shower rooms, and beds to die for! (We slept like logs). We were made more than welcome to make use of the incredible sub tropical gardens and swimming pool, which my sons absolutely loved. Paul even spent time teaching my youngest son to have more confidence in the pool! The gardens were absolutely incredible, you were literally surrounded by beautiful palm trees and flowers. It was a pleasure to return to the White House after each busy day, and our only regret is that we only stayed for one week instead of two! We will most definitely be returning in the near future. Thanks Paul and Linda for helping to make our holiday so special.

Excellent
We've had a fabulous stay at The White House. The owners, Paul and Linda, are very warm, welcoming and accomodating. The house is spacious, spotless and very well equipped. The kitchen has everything you could possibly ask for, large fridge, freezer, oven, microwave, dishwasher, plenty of kitchenware. The hamper, by the way, is a very nice touch! The 2 bedrooms each have comfy beds, tv and ensuite bathrooms providing for toiletries and towels. As the house is attached to the Cary Court, we could also make use of the lovely tropical garden, while the kids enjoyed their time in the heated swimming pool - and so they did every single day! The walk into town is just a few minutes down and yet the surroundings of the house are very tranquil. In short, if you're looking for a place to stay on the English Riviera, you will get great value for money at The White House!

The White House, fabulous self catering accommodation
A great holiday yet again at the fabulous Cary Court Hotel, but for a change I decided to try out the self catering accommodation. "The White House" I wasn't disappointed. The White House is an excellent, stylish, spotlessly clean well equipped house with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. Staying at the White House also means you still get to use the hotel swimming pool and the comfy sun loungers to relax in the glorious tropical garden. As usual, a very friendly warm welcome from Linda and Paul, including a thoughtful tasty hamper! I just can't wait to come back later this year. I highly recommend The White House! Ten out of ten!
