24 singers/musicians stayed for the weekend and Marga made us feel so welcome. It was spotlessly clean, the cabins were lovely, the décor in the house was bright and cheerful and the garden was very pretty. Thank you Marga, we had a lovely time. I definitely recommend it.

Have stayed here a couple of times. Always clean,bright and welcoming. Very convenient for all parts of Torquay and for main road access. Couples especially catered for. The garden cabins are surprisingly comfortable and cosy.
