Pilgrims Rest Cottages is a collection of three unique, award winning cottages that have been welcoming guests year round since 2009. This collection of cottages is located within the conservation area of Barton, one of the historic villages that make up the popular seaside town of Torquay, South Devon.


Originally the barns of a 15th Century Devon longhouse, 'The Old Manor Farmhouse', these handsome cob and stone buildings have been graded by English Heritage as a site of ‘National Importance’; now the  oldest residency on the English Riviera with reputed links to The Spanish Armada .and the Prince of Orange becoming King no less!


Rich in history yet smartly styled to make a comfortable retreat, this versatile cottage is well suited to families or those looking for a little more space, perhaps with your dog joining along too. 


‘Honeysuckle’ is a beautiful, 2-bedroom cottage. Comfortably sleeping up to 4 guests plus infants, it makes an ideal base for families or friends looking to explore the English Riviera. With access to the shared courtyard and old walled orchard garden, this secure outdoor space also makes Honeysuckle the perfect choice for those who wish to bring their four-legged friends along. The same style and comfort that runs throughout this lovely collection of properties can be seen in Honeysuckle, and on the first floor you will find two beautiful double bedrooms which can be configured as super king beds, or separated to twins based on your preferences. Beautiful furnishings and oak beams, and a bathroom. The stunning open plan lounge, dining room and fully equipped kitchen are found downstairs.

PLUS...DOGS STAY FOR FREE! Pilgrims Rest Cottages welcomes dogs at no extra cost.
