Pilgrims Rest Cottages Information


Pilgrims Rest Cottages offer 3 multi-awarding places to stay; packed with comfort in an ideal location in one of Torquay’s villages, Barton, on The English Riviera. Winning 7 awards as finalists for ‘best self-catering’ and ‘most dog friendly’ (2012/19), guests are welcome year-round where local shops are a stroll away, beaches and coastal walks a mile and a multitude of restaurants and attractions within 1-10-mile – all ‘gems’ revealed from special information folders. All come with parking and, in case guests wish to stay at home; access to secure courtyard, orchard and main gardens - with sun loungers, BBQs and play equipment - whilst inside TVs, super-fast WIFI and access to Netflix. ‘Sweet Rose’ is our quaint, cosy 1-bedroom cottage brimming with character with enviable slipper bath, super comfy king size bed and separate toilet. Downstairs you find an open plan relaxing area with double settee, diner and fully equipped kitchen with all amenities. Towels and linen are always provided along with welcome gifts as a thank you. ‘Honeysuckle’ is the perfect destination for an English Riviera holiday. This 2-bedroom cottage can comfortably sleep up to 4 guests plus infants. On the first floor are 2 beautiful double bedrooms, with super king size beds that can separate into twin plus a stylish bathroom. On the ground, there is a large open planned area with fully equipped kitchen with the necessary dishwasher and washing machine, 2 double settee lounge and diner. ‘Threshing Barn’ is the semi-detached mirror image of Honeysuckle; just with more rooms and bathrooms! As 4 bedroom it can comfortably welcome 8 guests and with 3 bathrooms – one downstairs – there’ll be no queuing. With super king size, king size and twin beds everyone is comfortable, and a massive open planned downstairs give plenty of space to relax and enjoy, with 3 super settees, huge dining area and fully equipped kitchen with all amenities including the rocking lamb (not horse!).

My wife and I moved to The English Riviera after own holiday with our, then, 5 young children after a chance sight of an advert with the Old Manor Farmhouse for sale with its outbuildings. Not stuck in the middle of nowhere – I couldn’t cope being the taxi driver for 5 children! - but 500 yards from the hotel where we stayed, in the Torquay village, Barton. It’s been the best decision. We’ve loved living here and running our self-catering business. With passion and way too much money, the barns where restored and opened to guests in 2009 as Pilgrims Rest Cottages. 10 years on, we’re proud to have been awarded 5-time finalist for Best Self Catering on The English Riviera and winner for Best Dog Friendly Business. We love giving our guests extras and spoiling them. It’s not just giving a gorgeous place to stay, but the little extras that can really make a difference; all extras we have learnt from our own holidays. These include in depth information folders revealing the gems in the area – eating, beaches, attraction. We hope you come to try us out. Your hosts, Martin and Kim
