St Edmunds Guest House Paignton

About Us

Welcome to St Edmunds Guest House.

Having taken over St Edmunds Guest House in December 2019, then being locked down for three months in March 2020, Linda and Roger have spent all their free time refurbishing the interior to a high standard. 

Retaining some of the 1850’s charm and characteristics but using a modern twist, updating, painting, and replacing furniture and bedding throughout.

We believe you don’t have to compromise on quality!

We have seven comfortable rooms, a combination of single, double, twin and family (double and single bed) all of which are en-suite. Ground floor rooms are available for guests with access difficulties. – please ask when booking.  A cot and high chair are also available upon request.  Contractors are welcome (early breakfast available).  We've recently had contractors working on an episode of DIY SOS The Big Build in Torquay

Yes, we accept your ‘best friend’ - your pet (though we draw the line at snakes!), we even provide a sausage for breakfast.

We offer a generous varied menu with early and individual breakfasts catered for.  Dietary conditions are also catered for.

The house has central heating throughout and each room has a flat-screen colour television, clock radio, hairdryer, free Wifi and a well-stocked beverage tray.  Fresh towels and toiletries are provided. Iron and ironing board are available.

The front garden is available to sit and while away a little time with our Torbay palms. St Edmunds is non-smoking throughout – although guests may use the garden and front patio areas. 

There is a free on site parking with a car space for each room.   If you don’t want to do any driving whilst you are here, just lock your car and leave it.  St Edmunds is 150 yards from the sea front at Paignton and a 300 yard level walk to the local amenities.  The Bus and Train stations are also within close level walking distance (350 yards).  Public transport is frequent and good.  

Sea anglers and walkers (we are on the South West Coast path) are welcome.  For cyclists this is a superb location for rides in all directions, including the local Velopark.  We have secure storage too.  As for Steam railway enthusiasts, we are just a short walk from the Paignton to Kingswear line and we can tell you all about steam engines.

Paignton has lots to do and see including the Pier, Paignton Zoo, Geopark, Pirates Jungle crazy golf and the Harbour,  Paignton Regatta, seafront concerts, exhibitions, the Torbay Half Marathon, we are close to Greenway House, which was Agatha Christie's holiday home and is open for public viewing,  numerous yachting events and the latest attraction, the Free, two-day English Riviera Air Show in June which is centred across Paignton.
