I have just come back from a week spent in Torquay. Janet and Andrew are very warm and hospitable. It's like going to stay with friends. My coeliac diet was well catered for. The food was delicious and very varied. Bedrooms were clean and well decorated. There are plenty of places to visit around the area especially Living Coasts and... More

Going to Torquay for 2 days in mid-July we had an abundance of possible lodgings to choose from. We eventually decided to go for Abingdon Guest House due to their professed ability to cater for coeliacs. But apart from enjoying the fullest of gluten-free breakfasts (and they don't come easy) we found the guesthouse itself to be a perfect charmer.... More

Very welcoming, and coped well with our request for a gluten free, vegetarian breakfast. Room was spotless and made up each day. The guest house is located on one of the main routes into Torquay, but the double glazing kept out almost all noise of the traffic. Overall we had a good stay.

Spoke to Janet on the phone to sort out the booking and and we got talking about making gluten free profiteroles and we had a good laugh about that, and I knew then we were going to have a good time. We arrived after our four hour journey and were met by Janet who straight away made my wife and... More

We were made welcome from the moment of arrival with tea and home made cake. One coeliac and one normal diet catered for very well, nothing on the menu which could not be enjoyed by both of us. Room clean and comfortable,and the shower the best yet of any.

My partner and I stayed at this lovely B&B for a week. Janet and Andrew were very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble, they made us feel right at home. Their local knowledge was especially useful as we wanted to tour around and find the best beaches! I booked this B&B in particular as they did home cooked coeliac breakfasts... More

Another return stay at this excellent establishment which was as good as ever. Such a friendly greeting, atmosphere provided by the proprietors who are only too willing to assist their guests whether it be with local information or in providing those personal touches. Food is of exceptional standard with those guests with dietary requirements extremely well catered for. The accommodation... More
