We arrived at this lovely guest house to be greeted by Dawn and her lovely Dog Oscar. It was just the kind of welcome that makes you feel appreciated. The house is of Victorian style and extremely welcoming and homely. As a 20 something the decor is not to my style but there is just something magical about the place. The bed was super comfy and as with everything in the house sourced locally. The rooms are well equipped and extremely well maintained. We stayed in the top family room, which had plenty of room for myself and partner, 1 year old and large dog. It's worth noting that there are quite a few stairs to go up, but after walking up some of the Hills in Torquay what's a few more stairs to worry about. Breakfast is absolutely lovely and I would highly reccomend trying the Ham and Cheese on toast. It's not like anything I have eaten before.
It's in a brilliant location being 2 minutes walk from Torquay Harbour and 5 minutes from Meadfoot beach. There's a nice circular walk that takes in the Beach, and then some fabulous houses, Kent Caverns and Torquay harbour that I would reccomend taking.
We had a fantastic three night stay here at extremely reasonable rates, so much so that I reccomended the place to family within 2 days of being home. I am also looking at booking another break here in the near future.
