Great place
Fantastic place to stay, not too far from the main town, close enough to walk to, very friendly service and a great variety for breakfast. The home made cakes are also a very nice treat!!!

Just perfect.
A perfect place to stay in Torquay. Everything was outstanding from the start. Peter, the owner, was always committed and helpful, had great recommendations where to go and what to do in the area. The house itself was spotless clean, cosy and comfortable. Breakfast was gorgeous, parking easy, safe and free. We loved it there.

Wow! Superb find, a must stay!
Beautiful room with blissfully comfortable bed, lots of thoughtful little touches. Breakfast was second to none and Peter and Helen were faultless hosts. We had a wonderful weekend and will most definitely return
