We stayed at the Headland View not for the first time - it’s still the very best B & B we've ever stayed in. Absolutely first class, perfect in every respect. David & David were extraordinarily kind and attentive hosts and made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was superb. We enjoyed the amazing views at all times of the day,... More

Part of a Victorian terrace on the beautiful Babbacomb Downs. This clean nicely decorated guest house was taken over in May 2016 by new owners. The rooms, particularly on-suite facilities, are small; with basins in the room rather than the bathroom. Not all room have an on-suite so if this is important for you check what you are booking.
