Gainsboro Torquay

About Us

The Gainsboro guest house is located in a very beautiful and pleasant part of Torquay it sits within a stones throw 

from the beach, Torre Abbey, conference centre and the train station.

The beautiful village of Cockington is only 1/2 hour walk away where you will find some of the prettiest thatched buildings

ever built. If you love photography or are a keen ornopholgist you will not be disappointed at what you find.

We have plenty of parking so leave your car and jump on the train bus or ferry to visit some of the local coastal and inland

towns the list is endless with many sights to see.

Occasionally we get dolphins in the bay and Brixham has its own resident seals and if your lucky will spot the Mackerel

chasing the fry in the summer months.

When eating out or if you fancy a tipple Chelston Manor is less than a 10 minute walk away or you can always try the 

oldest pub in Torquay The Hole In The Wall which is close to the Harbour a beautiful 30 minute walk along the coast,

although there are many other places to check out as well.

We offer a relaxed and comfortable stay with on suite rooms, wifi, free parking and a good hearty breakfast,

so come and join us in Torquay.
