Fabulous location by the park and beach. Lovely walk into Paignton too. Owners are friendly and welcoming. Room was dated yet spotless and beds comfortable. Breakfast was tasty with a good variety. Tables are a little crammed together but the B and B was fully booked. Would stay again if back in the area.

Beautiful big Victorian house with nice large family-friendly rooms. The hosts Ellie & Steve were absolutely lovely and made us feel very welcome. They provided great breakfasts every morning, cooked to order and accompanied by a range of cereals and juices. Really excellent location overlooking the park and just a few hundred metres from Goodrington beach. It was only a... More

Stayed here for a family wedding in May. Lovely b&b in a great location near the beach and walkable to town. Run by a lovely couple who couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable. Great breakfasts too. Would definitely stay here again.

Well situated between Paignton and Goodrington, this is a traditional English B & B. Very welcoming hosts, decent freshly-cooked breakfast, double rooms not over large and some of the facilities are a bit dated, but clean. Good value, street parking outside.
