Heathcliff House, is a Victorian villa, circa 1860, with wonderful character and strong connections to Agatha Christie, who came for tea when the property was the local vicarage. In fact it’s where her book ‘Murder at the Vicarage’ was born as an idea and a plaque on the building confirms this

Located well for the town centre, an easy walk to the beach and the many amenities, the Bed & Breakfast is situated on the main route into Torquay with a car park and spaces for 8/9 cars. Situated well in Torquay, within the English Riviera, where holidaymakers flock in to visit the 22 miles of stunning beaches and with all the various tourist activities which are a great draw throughout the year. With Torre train station and a bus stop close by, ideal for guests to benefit during their stay and travel easily without their car.

The current owners have run the business efficiently, increasing the trade and more importantly the profit. Working to a great business model they have brought the direct bookings up to around 80% of all trade, with a mailing list to be envied. Combine this with an award winning business !
