Had a brilliant 4 night stay at Lanscombe House B&B. Everything to a very high standard - breakfasts superb and room immaculate; hosts Leon and Paula very friendly and attentive. Quiet and beautiful location. Hope to visit again soon. Recommend to anyone wanting to visit Torquay and the surrounding area.

If you are after a peaceful retreat within walking distance of Torquay this is the place. One of the best B&Bs we have stayed in. Small, intimate, stylish, in a picturesque village full of thatched cottages and with a small country park on the doorstep. Owned and run by a lovely couple who know how to add little luxury touches...

This B&B was perfect for a relaxing bank holiday! The four poster bed and bathtub were both amazing and the couple who were in charge were both so friendly and helpful in their advice on tourist attractions to visit. The breakfast was made-to-order, and definitely prepared us for the day. Would definitely visit again!

Hi Geoff, Thanks for choosing to stay with us and taking the time to review us. Your comments are appreciated. Yes, we agree. Cockington is a rather special place. Close to the many attractions that Torbay has to offer but a world apart... Paula

Stayed here last year and it was an absolute pleasure. Enjoyed our stay this year but we had a much better room last year. The experience did not feel quite as luxurious as last year probably because it is in the process of being turned into self catering holiday lets. It was still a good place to stay though. The...
