We spent three nights at this charming B&B. Spotless rooms. One of the best English breakfasts I've ever had. The sausage was awesome. The service and the hospitality in general was fantastic. We arrived here by train from London. It was quite a stroll from the train station to the inn, but manageable. There were no taxies at the station when we arrived. I would recommend you to ask the B&B to cater for a taxi upon your arrival. The location of the inn is a bit off, unless you have a car. Although a bit remote from town center, it is next door to a beautiful country side walking path that ends in the historic village Cockington. The village is a community of thatched roof houses. It has a very nice pub, a rose garden with café and some small shops. The host assisted us in finding a bike rental. It was about 2 kilometers in walking distance to the bike rental. They provided excellent service. We kept the bikes for two days. Since we had very warm and sunny weather, we arranged our tours based beach advises we got from our host. It led us to Brixham. The first day we biked to Brixham and used the ferry to bring us back to Torquay. Next day we biked in both directions. Brixham turned out to be british version of Positano. But less pricey. All in all - our best recommendation for this inn!
