Bay Cottage Guest House is in an ideal location for you if you are planning a holiday beside the sea and want to explore Paignton, Brixham, Torquay, Dartmoor and South Devon. You can order a traditional cooked breakfast which is ideal before a day of walking and exploring the local countryside. Alternatively, you can choose a lighter breakfast if you want a quiet, more relaxing day strolling along the seafront or visiting the nearby music pubs. Paignton is close to a number of National Trust Homes and Gardens so the Guest House is an ideal base from which you can explore these jewels in South Devon. If you stay at Bay Cottage, you will only be a few minutes walk from Paignton town centre and just 150 metres from the seafront! All our rooms are en suite and accessed via stairs. Currently we can accommodate children who are twelve years or older.
This historic Victorian villa was once Torre Vicarage, Agatha Christie and the Miller family frequently visited for tea. Agatha Christie drew on these early experiences and consulted with family friend and Vicar of Torre, the Reverend Harry Petty, on ecclesiastical matters when writing the first Miss Marple novel, Murder at the Vicarage (1930).
You can expect high quality bed and breakfast accommodation with free on site car parking and complimentary wi-fi available throughout the property. Guests recognise the exceptional service and freshly prepared, cooked to order “amazing breakfast”! For the very best rates and offers, please contact Nigel or Juliette on 01803 211580.
