My wife and I stayed in room 7 for 1 night for a family party in Torquay. Room was very clean, quiet and the perfect place to rest before and after the party. Breakfast the next morning was freshly prepared and subsequently delicious. An excellent and welcoming stay.

Pauline and Anthony are both wonderful hosts and we were warmly welcomed from the outset. Our suite was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The villa has lots of character and is decorated with artistic flair. The breakfast menu is comprehensive and well cooked and includes plenty of fresh fruits and healthy options. We were only sorry that our stay was... More

The rooms are lovely, only thing would be better quality toiletries but to be honest we normally take our own so really not a problem. Breakfast was fantastic, plenty of choice and... More

Anthony & Pauline are a very warm and friendly couple. Our room was everything we had hoped for. We had a nice view from our window and because of the secluded location, no outside noise. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The breakfast was also very enjoyable and we are both looking forward to our... More
