5 stars says it all. A pleasure to stay in, even the location is a chocolate box setting. The only down side is, if you need to eat in the evening, you need to drive. There is a pub in the village (part of a chain) and the food is ok. The owners are more than willing to advise where... More

After a five hour journey we were received with a very friendly welcome and a tour of the hotel together with a welcome cup of tea from Paula.

We were greeted with a very warm welcome and a much needed pot of coffee. Room was spotless, very comfortable & beautifully furnished. Would certainly stay again and recommend to others. Breakfast was a delight as were our hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Location was idyllic & tranquil without being too far away from the beach & Torquay itself.... More

This was the start of a relaxing and brilliant stay. The daily breakfast could not be faulted with fresh local produce including beautiful bread and jams.... More

This place is right in the centre of an amazingly pretty village and about a 15 minute stroll through the woods to the coast and a further 15/20 minutes into the centre of... More
