Such a gem in South Devon! What a gorgeous property The White House is. Linda and Paul were lovely hosts, very friendly and attentive, sorting out any questions/issues immediately. They've created beautiful holiday homes, with the best of both worlds, having our own separate property with access to the pool, beautiful terraced tropical gardens and being able to join them for breakfast at the B&B they currently run too. We would highly recommend this property (we were 4 people spanning 3 generations from 12 to 75yrs) to familes and couples wanting a peaceful haven (I slept like a log all week!) that also has all the amenities and sites of Torquay within a 15 minute walk - however the walk is a very steep one with lots of steps too, so this may be less appropriate for those with mobility issues.Miss Katie Farrell - 29th August 2019
