“Excellent!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

We've stayed at Lanscombe House in July as a present for my birthday and to be honest words can not describe how satisfied we were with our stay! We had to stay one more night because we just couldn't let go of this place!
Everything was perfect: the location(very quiet and relaxing but close to the beach in the same time) ,the hotel itself,the room (we loved the underfloor heating in the bathroom),the cleanliness...everything spotless! The breakfast was great,lovely local food!
Leon and Paula,the best host,any question you have they'll answer it!
For us 5* it's not enough,that's a 5*+ lovely place!
We can't wait to go back!
Thank you!

Daniel and Valentina

My husband & I have recently returned from a weeks stay at Landscombe house , it was our third visit & as before we enjoyed the peace and quiet more than words can say. We mind our 4 grandchildren all year round and of course we love them dearly but to stay in a child free hotel was like being in an oasis of tranquility ! So thank you Leon & Paula for looking after us so well and of course we will be back to have our batteries recharged again

Room Tip: We have stayed in rooms 3 & 4 both are beautiful sunny rooms but room 4 is larger for the same p...

We stayed at Lanscombe House for 2 nights and found the whole experience quite brilliant. We were greeted and welcomed to the hotel in a warm and professional manner. The room was great, good size and the ensuite was clean and faultless.

There was a wide selection for breakfast with all high quality local produce and it felt like the owners really cared about your breakfast experience.

We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Once again my Mum & I had a wonderful stay in Lanscombe House, this time for ten nights. The setting is beautiful,peaceful & very relaxing. The house is immaculate & we miss the lovely breakfasts cooked by Leon!
Thank you Leon & Paula for being such good hosts & we look forward to staying in Lanscombe House in the future.

we enjoyed our stay at Lanscombe House,the room(we had room 5 )was great,and a good size with a 4 poster bed.Very relaxing break,we enjoyed the peaceful setting of Lanscombe House.
The 4 poster bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed a sound nights sleep,Breakfast was very good,freshly cooked and plenty of choice.Leon and Paula were very good hosts and very helpful with suggestions for outings and general information.we stayed for 3 nights but would have enjoyed a longer stay.
We enjoyed a steady walk into Torquay which took around 30 minutes along the stream path.
Would recommend this hotel to friends and family

Room Tip: we had room 5 which was a good size with 4 poster bed and a garden view

Lovely hotel in a beautiful setting. Service and food was first class, Beds were exceedingly comfortable. Overall an excellent place to stay, Close to Torquay seafront, walking distance but in a very secluded quiet location.

On vacation from USA.
Traveling Devon for a two and half week vacation and taking in all the sights. Cockington Village was out final stop before heading back to Heathrow and Atlanta Georgia.
We did not realize it at the time but we kept the best for the last. We couldn't wish for nicer surroundings.
The initial drive through the village is "wow" and then we came to the Lanscombe House!
A warm feeling of "all is well" flows as we pass through the entrance into the parking area.
Leon and Paula are polite and superb hosts, making sure we were as comfortable as possible.
The "all is well" feeling remained until we loaded our luggage for the drive to Heathrow.
One day we will return for the hospitality, comfort and again to experience the breakfasts.

We have many fond memories of our vacation and these are enhanced with our stay at the Lanscombe House.
If you like strolling, there are many walks that are awesome, that start right outside the front door.
Thanks Paula and Leon. Eric and Carin
