    Jo and Martin were exceptional hosts. Cherwood is a cozy jewel by the sea. Breakfast is breathtaking. I forgot a bunch of personal belongings when I left and they were kind enough to ship them back to London. Drausio

Welcome, we are husband and wife team Martin and Jo, who own, run and live at Cherwood Guest House in Paignton, Devon on the south cost, often referred to as the ‘English Riviera’ due to its temperate climate. Having enjoyed successful careers in the travel and tourism and hospitality industries, with years of experience working on cruise ships, we decided we would like to provide a smaller, more personal service of our own. We believe we understand what our guests are looking for, be it family-friendly, a romantic break or a base for a corporate stay. We pride ourselves on providing top quality, friendly accommodation. All of our 8 en-suite rooms are clean, stylish & comfortably furnished. Located just a few minutes’ walk away from Paignton Beach/Pier we are the perfect base from which to explore. A trip to this beautiful part of the country has its advantages for those that enjoy fresh air, the outdoor life and of course the beach at the end of the road! Take a moment to explore our website and you will see for yourself, where previous happy guests have shared their reviews. We very much look forward to welcoming you….be our guests and enjoy our hospitality. Martin and Jo
