About Us

Welcome to the Cherwood Guest House, a beautiful, 3 storey town-house in the heart of Paignton. We offer quality bed and breakfast accommodation and easy access and a short walk to the town centre, seafront and Paignton’s ‘Golden Mile’ district of Torbay Road with amusement arcades, fish and chip takeaways and shops selling holiday gifts and souvenirs.

We enjoy making our guests stay one to remember and cherish for many years.  We welcome solo travellers, couples and families with children of any age and we can provide extra beds and cots in the rooms, when notified at time of booking.  We have lots of books, games and DVDs that children can borrow during their stay with us. 

The Cherwood is easy to find, as it is in a convenient level location, close to the beach and the town centre is a short walk. The Dartmouth Steam Railway is popular with first time and returning visitors, starting at Paignton station there are delightful views as you are transported along the picturesque English Riviera coastline.  

Devon’s beautiful bay has an excellent transport network with connections to all parts of the UK, and the regular bus and train services means that you can easily travel around the county. For guests arriving by car or motorbike there is a local car park nearby, within a short walking distance and parking tickets can be purchased through Cherwood Guest House. Please ask us for details when you book your accommodation with us.
