History meets modern day luxuries in this beautifully restored barn at Old Manor Farm which has recently been awarded the prestigious 5 star rating by Visit England. Sweet Rose is part of The Old Manor Farmhouse, a 16th Century Devon longhouse, and has retained much original character such as stunning oak beams enfolded by the cob and stone structure and high, beamed vaulted ceilings.

Modern luxuries have been introduced such as king-size beds, roll top baths, Freeview TV/DVDs and washing machines to name a few. If you feel like a spot of indulgence there is pampering available on-site such as massages, manicures, pedicures or facials.

“We came for a rest before the birth of our 1st baby. Sweet Rose was lovely with very friendly hosts. We really enjoyed our trip down to Oddicombe beach before having a delicious cream tea! “

Nearby there is an excellent selection of local shops while Torquay town centre, the harbour and beaches are a short drive away. Watcombe Beach is 1/2 mile away and offers free parking at the top of the incline allowing you to access either the South West Coast path or the beach.
