The day before we checked in, we booked and paid £400 for 5 nights accommodation in good faith, but had to check out after one night. We advised the owners of this 30 minutes after checking in.

Great little guesthouse with an excellent location. its just a few mins walk for the shops and local pubs in babbacombe and ~20 mins walk into torquay. The SW coastal path is on the doorstep and provides endless miles of running (or walking). Highly recommended.

At breakfast Jacki made homemade croissants as my wife did not want English breakfast, a nice detail from them to do so. My... More

I needed to stay in Torbay for one night on business. The Aveland hit the spot on all counts. Friendly, clean, easy to park, Quiet and very reasonably prices and a nice little bar. I hope that the sun shone for the wedding!

Beautiful small guesthouse, lead by wonderful an very friendly hosts in a calm part of torquay , near to the seaside and in a very attractive region for a short or longer stay (e.g. recovery or holydays). I hope to come back one more time! Many thanks to Jacqui and David for their hospitality.

We spent a week at this Guest House, The proprietors Jacqui and David were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Jacqui was well deserving of the award for finalist Best Proprietor of the year 2011. She seems to have endless energy. It is a lovely house and spotlessly clean. The food is excellent. it's about five/10 minutes walk... More
