We were impressed with our couple of days break, a lovely house and gardens very nicely located, quiet and peaceful, in walking distance to the sea. The owners are welcoming and friendly, our room lovely, well equipped with nice toiletries and breakfast was delicious. It would be nice in summer as there is a nice pool outside. Recommended for Torquay.

This B&B was truly amazing, we booked it for a few nights and couldn’t fault a thing. The hosts were fantastic and our room was clean well appointed with some lovely toiletries. It was close to Torquay seafront.

Superb stay on a recent holiday in Torquay, this bed and breakfast was perfect. Lisa and Christophe were delightful hosts and the location was fantastic, close to the seafront. Our room was excellent, we had a lovely seaview and it was very clean with a nice hospitality tray which was topped up daily. The cooked breakfast served in the morning was absolutely delicious.
