    Lee & Elaine are excellent hosts. They were friendly and welcoming and nothing seemed too much trouble to them. Blenheim house was comfortable and the level of cleanliness and attention to detail was exceptional.

Blenheim House is a family run B&B run by Elaine and Lee Ratcliffe. The property is situated on a beautiful tree lined avenue a short walk from the beach. There is a lovely out door area for guest to sit and relax on the warm summer evenings. There is also off road parking available as well as free parking on the road. We want our guests to feel at home when they come to stay with us and feel our home is their home.
We lived and worked in Manchester all our lives and decided to have a complete life change and move to beautiful Torquay. I was a childminder for over 11 years and before that, a Clinical Support Nurse in one of Manchesters biggest children's hospital. Lee is an ex Royal Navy Chef and was also a Head Chef in one of Manchesters 4 star Hotels. We both loved our jobs but as our children have now grown up, we decided to try something new. We instantly fell in love with Blenheim House and are so excited to welcome guest to our lovely home.
Blenheim house is set back from the sea front on a lovely quiet tree lined road. Many of the B&B owners have been here for up to 25yrs so its a very friendly community.
