Stayed one night whilst visiting friends. Perfectly located and I received an excellent welcome from the owner. I stayed in a double room which was a great size, very clean and recently decorated all over. The room had a dressing table, wardrobe and tea/coffee making. As with many B&B's the ensure bathroom is a tiny but it serves the purpose...

Go ahead and book the Lawnswood! Amazing value, comfy bed, quiet location but only 10 minutes from the high street, superb breakfast and Karen, the lovely owner, didn't even mind when we broke one of her brollies! Go for it - you won't be disappointed.

I slept soundly in the comfortable bed.There are a couple of private parking spaces at the rear if you can't find space on the road, though it could be hard to...

Just returned from a short break in Torquay, we found the Lawnswood by chance, so glad we did, Karen couldn't have been a better host, and she knows how to cook a decent breakfast. The room was big enough and cleaned every day, plenty of tea, coffee and sugar, and extra milk which we needed. The guest house is not...

I stayed here for a week weeks as working in the area. It's clean and tidy but I do find the rooms very small. The owners are friendly and always happy to help. There is free WiFi and always clean towels in the room each morning. The price of the room are very reasonable also. I can't say how good...
