Beaches B&B in Paignton, Devon

The 18 - 24 March 2019 marks National B&B Week. It was launched to highlight all that is great and good about the guesthouse industry in the UK and all that it contributes to the local economy. The Beaches B&B in Paignton decided that was definitely worth celebrating, so they organised a celebratory event and invited the local MP, Kevin Foster along, for his support.

The guest house business in the UK contributes 2 billion pounds to the local economy and The Beaches B&B is no exception in its support of local business. All of their suppliers, from the laundry providers to the butcher who provides our locally sourced organic pork were invited along to take part in the event. Also invited were local businesses who provide events in the area such as jet-skiing, paddle boarding and bike hire.

So, the celebration was set… other local businesses in the area supported the event. The Boathouse, a local beach bar and bistro provided a scrumptious buffet lunch and local florist, Susan’s Flowers, contributed a beautiful flower and table display.

Meet the owners of Beaches B&B

The proud owners, Ged and Claire are from Worcestershire and took over ownership of the Beaches B&B in June 2018. Ged and Claire believe that customers can expect a warm welcome, excellent service which goes the extra mile with some luxury touches to make their stay that extra bit special.

The Beaches B&B is unique in that they offer a quiet and peaceful location in a prime position. Guests report that The Beaches B&B is extremely comfortable and enjoy the quality breakfasts and the extra touches provided.

Claire & Ged’s Beaches B&B has become synonymous for creating memories & leaving footsteps in the sand and the event left all who attended with memories of a fun and celebratory event.

Both Ged & Claire know what value the guest house industry brings to both the local economy , local business & most of all to all those who enjoy the hospitality it offers during their holidays year after year.

Claire believes that “being a second generation guest house owner, we are proud to be part of this great heritage in UK culture which brings such value to all associated with it”. Many guests highly rate the Beaches B&B and return to it when visiting The English Riviera time and time again.

Claire says “when you realise how much B&B’s in the UK contribute to so many it is worth taking time out of your schedule to celebrate that fact and further raise the awareness. Ged says that “we look forward to bringing value to all who come into contact with the Beaches B&B over the years to come”.

They both love the beautiful scenery of The English Riviera and its stunning coastline. They often enjoy a ride on the steam train leaving from Paignton, travelling along the coast to Dartmouth and then a boat ride along the River Dart from Dartmouth to Totnes, with a bus ride back home to Paignton. This is known as The Round Robin. Tickets can be purchased directly from The English Riviera Visitor Centre.

Their top tip to guests visiting The Beaches B&B, Paignton is to stay for a few days to have a chance to relax, refresh and enjoy all that is on offer in the area as there is so much to see and experience.
