Coastguard Cottage is a cottage in a fabulous location, ideal for families and couples, close to the beach and harbour in Paignton. This pretty, traditional maritime cottage has been extensively refurbished in a coastal style throughout to proved very comfortable holiday accommodation for four.

The meticulous attention to detail is evident from the outset but it's not just a case of blue and white décor throughout – from the moment you walk in you get a warm and welcoming feel, the living room with its barometer on the wall and  stylish grey Ercol sofas with colourful  striped cushions are nice touches. The bedrooms are delightful, very simple with stripped wooden bed frames and lovely bedding and furnishings creating a homely feel.

Coastguard Cottage is convenient for Paignton Zoo, Living Coasts and other attractions close by. The long promenade, traditional pier and beach are easily accessible. Paignton forms part of the UNESCO accredited English Riviera Global Geopark – one of just 8 sites in the United Kingdom and Ireland which have been awarded such status which celebrates the history as well as the natural beauty of the area.

We had a wonderful stay at Coastguard cottage. The house was beautifully decorated and was very charming. The welcome note and chocolates were very much appreciated and we loved the little interior pieces dotted around the cottage. The beach was a five minute walk away and it was an easy drive to nearby towns. Thank you very much for the lovely stay!
