Short midweek stay - clean, comfortable room, very warm welcome on arrival complete with tea, a fabulous location close to the seafront and amenities, and best of all slept like a log - will definitely be returning!

We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and would like to thank you for your kind comments. It is also nice to hear that you slept well it probably was the sea air or it possibly could have been our comfortable orthopedic beds! Hopefully we will see you in the future if you travel this way again. More

Stayed for a couple of days to visit Paington,Dartmouth and Totnes. Just a 10 min walk to Paington train station and the steam train. Malcolm and Mandy are lovely hosts and very welcoming. Mandy also cooks a really good full English breakfast. Will definitely visit again and would recommend friends and family
