Linger Lodge
Ranked #26 of 34 Kingsbridge B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 October 2008

After a gruelling, undulating, nine-mile walk from Dartmouth, my husband and I fantasised about a warm drink and a long lie down as we walked up the hill towards Linger Lodge. Our dreams were far surpassed by the welcome we received from David and Christine. A steaming pot of tea complete with chocolate biscuits and enthusiastic conversation greeted us in the dedicated guest lounge. As we were the only guests in this part of the building my husband and I had the sole use of a large lounge and dining area overlooking the Ley's fabulous garden and the beach, in addition to our perfectly proportioned room.

As per the previous review, the food at the only restaurant in town is more than adequate - portion sizes extremely generous and waiting staff very keen to please.

Our hosts supplied a wonderful breakfast, cooked to perfection, along with more entertaining conversation and advice for our next walk.

Walking the coast path from Salcombe to Torcross found this B&B from the helpful Kingsbridge tourist information office. To describe Linger Lodge as eccentric would be unfair and might put you off - don't be put off it's in a fabulous location and refurbished to a very high standard. David & Christine Ley are mine hosts and incredibly welcoming and entertaining - Christine having been in show-business and David a sailor on the high seas.
It's very spacious and the rooms are top quality. The eccentric bit is the name of the place and it's unique selling point - "Truly a place to Linger" - the Linger Lodge with the Linger Longer Lounge, Linger Longer Bedroom and the Linger Longer Lawn. It's got 2 bedrooms and an appartment - all pristine condition and comfortable. Breakfast good. The Leys very accommodating and supply their own built in entertainment.
Down the road is the Start Bay Inn - a great seafood pub and highly recommended. You could not eat closer to the sea!
Linger Lodge well worth a visit!
