Dave and Clare went to great lengths to ensure my short break was as enjoyable and relaxed as they could possibly make...

We had booked for the evening meal and it could not have been better. The food was excellent that we decided to eat on the...

All rooms are to an excellent standard and individually designed with Claire's eye for detail. Dave & Claire are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Already booked two more visits and...

In Torquay for a funeral and Dave & Claire could not have been more accommodating allowing us a late checkout as room not booked until the following day.Comfortable room with an amazingly comfortable bed. Superb freshly cooked breakfast. Really friendly & it seemed that nothing was too much trouble.
