Certificate of Excellence
AA four star gold award and AA breakfast award. This beautiful Victorian guesthouse with panoramic unobstructed sea views over the spectacular world heritage coast of lyme bay is a fabulous place to stay. Positioned directly on the Babbacombe Downs, the guest house has six individual bedrooms the majority having French doors opening on to balconies with tables and chairs to sit and relax while taking in the magnificent seaviews. Or choose one of our rearview rooms with superking/large twin beds or with four poster bed. The guest house has retained many of its original Victorian features and architecture, with a sun lounge and pretty dinning room, for you to enjoy your traditional freshly prepared and served English breakfast or choose one of the daily specials fruit pancakes, omelette, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon or poached eggs on English toasted muffin. All accompanied by cereals, fresh fruit, fruit compote and toast with conserves and homemade marmalade. A great place to stay for visiting the surrounding area of Torquay, Paighton, Brixham, Dartmouth, Dartmoor and the southwest coastal path. Ideally located for lovely blue flag beaches with a great choice of traditional English pubs and a large variety of restaurants nearby. Spoil yourself and enjoy the view.
