We had a lovely stay. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. The hot tub was a great addition. The view was nice from the cottage. The area of Paignton and the surrounding areas of Torquay and Brixham are lovely. We would return again soon.

Absolutely beautiful place to stay in. Perfectly clean and was very well equipped with everything you need along with robes for when you get out of the hot tub and a lovely view too. Great location and Gill and Colin were great hosts with lots of tips on places to visit. One added bonus was the very comfy bed!
