About Us

Sealawn is literally yards from Paignton sands, beaches and seafront attractions, and very close to all the amenities of Paignton town centre, with its variety of shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, multiplex cinema and nightlife.

Sealawn Guest House, which is owned by Ian and Debbie, is within easy level walk to Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway and we are also only a short distance from Splash Down Quaywest Water Park and Amusements and also Goodrington Park. A recent addition to the attractions is the Geo Play Park that is designed around the English Riviera's geological history and is on the green opposite Sealawn.

We also have our newly refurbished self-contained ground floor apartment which has easy access and is wheelchair friendly, with patio doors that open onto the garden. It has a wet-room, cooker, fridge, washing machine etc. and sleeps up to five people.

We have nine rooms, some with sea views; large family rooms, doubles, twins and single. All our rooms are comfortably furnished, each of them having en-suite showers or baths, free Wifi, tvs, radio alarms and tea and coffee making facilities. We have a private car park providing free ample parking.

The Sealawn is renowned for excellent home cooking, good service and creating a happy and relaxed atmosphere for all our guests. Our pleasant dining room has separate tables, the perfect setting to enjoy a delicious english breakfast.

One of the brightest jewels in the English Riviera’s crown, as you arrive in the seaside resort of Paignton, you are met with the welcoming sight of its long stretch of beautiful and easily accessible beachfront, promenade, traditional pier, colourful beach huts and green.  What's great about Paignton is that it is a compact resort, with the seafront and town centre shops all within close proximity, making it an ideal Devon holiday resort for that relaxing break away.  Once you arrive, you don't have to go far, but of course, there is plenty to see and do in the area if you wish to get out and about and explore.
