Linda & Roger have owned the Guest House since December 2019 and have spent a year completely re-decorating throughout to a modern high standard. They believe in the 'Why Compromise' approach for guests and treat all guests as they would like to be treated themselves and aim to offer a sincerely friendly and helpful service. Being local to Paignton they have a wealth of knowledge. Both have worked within the Hospitality industry for in excess of 30 years.
Torbay offers a great selection of activities for all the family no matter the weather. Paignton is an excellent resort catering for the young and old. Try fishing, paddle boats, swimming, crazy golf or just relax in a cafe and watch life go by. Go for a day trip on the historic Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway and, for the adventurous, visit the Water Park. Also with in easy commuting distance are the towns of Torquay and Brixham.
