We arrived earlier than anticipated not expecting the room to be ready but to our surprise it was waiting for us, the proprietor welcomed us with a friendly smile and allowed us to check in early. The room was immaculate and had everything needed with extras like beach towels and bags etc. The bed was exceptionally comfortable, there were also...

We experienced a high level of excellence at Lanscombe House. The Accommodation, Food and Service were all to a very high standard and one which is rare in a B & B. Our stay was for 5 nights in a beautifully decorated en-suite Room which had all the usual extras, but with an additional Fridge stocked with Water, Milk, Coffee....

I couldn't be more impressed with this Bed and Breakfast. The pictures on the website we looked at did not do the room justice but that just made it even better when we arrived. We stayed for three nights. Our room (room 2) was beautiful with lovely furniture, sash windows and a very modern en suite with underfloor heating and...

Stayed two nights at Lanscombe House, a late booking. The only room available had a four poster bed plus separate bath/shower room adjoining ensuite so perhaps not typical of the hotel. Even so the room was clean, very quiet both for the area and the house, remarkably spacious and probably not overpriced for a B and B in the area....

We stayed in Cockington for the first time in July. We knew nothing about Lanscombe House other than what we read on the internet so it was a bit of a gamble. If you are in the same situation fear not and take the plunge. We were delighted with it. Lovely ground floor bedroom with large shower room and very...

Excellent place to stay. Comfortable, spacious rooms. Lovely breakfasts with good quality food. Friendly accommodating hosts. Cannot recommend highly enough. Cockington is an unusual and fascinating place. It is a quiet haven from Torquay, which makes it an excellent place to stay, quiet and secluded and not far from all the amenities of Torquay.

Stayed at the beginning of June, this is our second time staying there. We don't normally stay in the same place twice but Paula and Leon run a great B&B and it was probably even better than i remembered. We were in room 2 which is a corner bedroom with a nice en-suite with walk in shower although water pressure...

A delicious breakfast was always served promptly and efficiently and it is nice that both Leon and Paula take their time to chat with all the guests offering their local knowledge and ideas for ways in which to spend the day.
