The room was stunning have a view to die for overlooking the bay. What finished off the whole experience though was the best... More

I have been struggling to find anything wrong with this B&B, maybe the bathroom was rather small. The list of good things includes a nice room, very clean, comfy bed, friendly hosts, tasty breakfast, tea and biscuits on arrival, binoculars (in the room), free wifi, fantastic decoration, a balcony and last but definitely not least the view!

When we arrived at Headland View we were greeted by Craig, the owner. He invited us in and served tea and biscuits. We checked in our rooms; one with the view of the ocean and with the view of the parking lot. Both rooms had their own bathroom and both were very clean and quiet. The decor was cute and... More

My mother and I have stayed in this B&B several times and it is a real treat. Craig and Helen are so welcoming and kind and they provide a most excellent service in every way. I would call this a 'boutique B&B' as their attention to detail and quality of rooms and food are well above any B&B I have... More

The name says it all. Unobstructed panoramic views over the coast of Lyme Bay from this beautiful Victorian guest house. Our 'room- with- a- view', had French doors leading to a comfortable balcony ,instantly offering relaxation- lux. Many of the original features are retained with our room having a four-poster and exquisite furnishings. Downstairs, a spacious lounge offered conversations with... More

Headland View is a beautifully decorated and charming victorian guesthouse on the Babbacombe Downs. My partner and I stayed for five nights at the end of July and would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to others. The room we stayed in was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated with a stunning sea view and very comfortable bed. The towels were changed... More

We stayed at the begining of May 2014 and this time we took my in laws. We booked this as joint Christmas/Birthday gift for them both as we knew they would enjoy The Headland View as much as we have on our previous visits. Both my in-laws agreed with my husband and I - "It's absolutely beautiful", "Craig and Helen... More

Excellent accommodation with great hosts (Helen and Craig) and stunning views. Very tasteful, modern and breakfast was lovely. We'll definitely be returning in the near future and would recommend it to anybody visiting the area.

While visiting family in Torquay in June, my husband and I stayed at Headland View for 6 days. Excellent experience and breakfast menu was varied and delicious. Craig and Helen were very gracious hosts. Highly recommend. Susan B. USA
