Welcome to our new guest house blog! Here you will be able to read in more detail about our friendly, family run guest house, and information on events happening in and around the Torquay, Paignton and Brixham area of Torbay.

Well, Autumn is well and truly here, the clocks have gone back and the horse chestnut trees at the top of our drive are nearly naked!

Its time for guest house owners to do all the jobs that have been put aside during the summer season, repair, renew and refresh areas of the guest accommodation that needs attention.

With this in mind we decided to renew our breakfast/dining room floor, it had a green swirly, patterned carpet that was to say a little dated. Stripping it back we discovered a concrete floor underneath which was very uneven with a main gas pipe running right across it, something we didnt want to remove! After levelling the floor, the professional floor guys have laid a beautiful Karndean Auckland Oak vinyl completely changing the appearance of the room. Of course now thats done I now need to paint skirting boards, change the curtains and maybe even the tablecloths, pictures etc. We hope you like it!

The weather has been so mild here in Torquay this October, 19 degrees today which is very unusual even for our mild microclimate down here. Nice bonus for anyone on half term holiday.

Not sure its going to last though....
