Family Run Bed & Breakfast Set In Beautiful Babbacombe
Babbacombe is a village within the town of Torquay which is a resort in itself often referred to as the ‘Jewel in Torquay’s crown’, famous for its cliff top promenade which enjoys stunning views across Lyme Bay.

Babbacombe Downs is a long stretch of common land, with the highest promenade in the country and sweeping wooded cliffs to the beaches of Oddicombe and Babbacombe below. To make the journey down to the beach at Oddicombe you have the gentle alternative of travelling the 240 feet down on the cliff railway, which has been operating since 1926.

The Downs borders the Babbacombe Downs themselves. We have a total of 12 en-suite rooms, 8 with balconies which enjoy fabulous unobstructed views over Babbacombe Downs stretching along the coastline to Teignmouth and out over Lyme Bay all the way to Portland Bill. We are a family run establishment which welcomes young and old, families, couples and singles alike. Built c. 1850 by Isaac Singer for his sisters, we form part of a terrace. We have a comfortable feel with an emphasis on excellent service now expected by the more discerning traveller.

We have just carried out the first phase of our refurbishment and now have 19″ flatscreen freeview TV’s in all rooms, with free WiFi access throughout the building.

We can accommodate families in our 4 family rooms, with reduced rates for children under 12. We are also dog friendly with a number of our rooms allocated for our four legged friends
