Everything was perfect. There was road construction going on down the hill which went on till late night and started early in the morning when we were there, but this is nothing the hosts could have done anything about and I think the loud part of that work is finished now. We'd gladly return, even if the jackhammering were going on in the distance.
Warm, welcoming host at a real B&B (not a small hotel that serves breakfast; you really are in a family home). Beautiful gardens, organic fare, view of the sea from the rooms/gardens, towns of Paignton and Torquay are walking distance (or a short ferry ride away from the less touristic fishing village of Brixham). Many excellent restaurants are within walking distance.
