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!
