Thank you for your kind comments. We have a wonderful local butcher who supplies our meat, and have been complimented numerous times on the taste of our GF sausages. We will look into blackout blinds for the Poirot room to reduce the light intake from the street light outside. We hope you visit the Torbay area again and look forward...

Debbie and John really made me and my dog very welcome. It was our first solo holiday after my partner's sad demise and we really appreciated how we were made to feel at home.
