“Relaxing Riviera Break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2009

After an eventful journey, typical of a bank holiday weekend we were warmly welcomed to the B & B. Our room was comfortable and clean with plenty of room for clothes for 3 people for a weeks stay. We started most mornings with a tasty full english breakfast with a local delicacy, hoggs pudding. This kept us full until evening. Trips out included one to Drago Castle, lovely place with friendly staff willing to pass on their knowledge, however the toilets were not pleasant but these are in the process of being improved. Living Coast, penguins galore, this seemed a very small place at first but there is more to see than meets the eye, more suited for visitors with smaller children and you can come and go as many times in the day as you like, this would ensure you see more of the feeding of the animals. Cockington, we walked into Cockington on a lovely sunny day, a beautiful little village with a few shops and some craft places in Cockington Court, a nice place for a picnic. We also took a steam train ride from Paignton to Kingswear and then a ferry across to Dartmouth, short of time we decided to take a small boat up the river to the castle. If you decide this trip is for you I would recommend you start out earlier in the day. All in all we had a terrific holiday, well looked after, even in the bar well into the night on a couple of occassions. We will be returning if not later this year definitely next.

Service was outstanding from the second we arrived. They were very helpfull and made us feel very welcome and relaxed. Nothing seemed to be a problem and were always asked if we needed anything in our very clean room. The breakfasts were simply fantastic to set you up for the day. We will definatly stay here again and cant recommend it enough.
