A lovely welcome from Helen and Craig. Room with amazing views and bonus of a balcony to watch the world go by on the Downs. Great breakfast, nothing was too much trouble, loved the specials! Excellent and would hope to stay again.

Just got back from our latest stay at this wonderful B&B. Everything was great as it always is, spotlessly clean and breakfasts wonderful with lots of choice. We had a sea view room which was great to sit on the balcony taking in the vista. We will certainly be back again in the future.

We stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of June. The whole place is beautifully decorated. Our bedroom had a balcony and a splendid view. Breakfasts were of a very high standard. Helen and Craig were friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend that you stay here.

Helen & Craig made us most welcome. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was sensational. We were there for 2 nights and each morning we had the offer of something special as well as the standard breakfast. This B & B is just out of town from Torquay in Devon. Great ocean views and walking distance to pubs and restaurants.... More

Stayed here for weekend in May. This B & B exceeded our expectations. Greeted on arrival by a lovely couple, Craig & Helen, they made us feel very welcome. Breakfast is PERFECTION on a plate. The B & B is in a lovely setting with wonderful views over Babbacombe Downs and the sea. PERFECTION. Will definitely be going back. PERFECTION
