Much of the fish and shellfish is landed at Brixham and delicious mussels come straight from the clear waters of Torbay or the River Teign. Most of the inns lamb and pork, ham, bacon & sausages, come from Devon farms. Beef and chicken are from West Country suppliers and free-range eggs come from the nearby village of Marldon.

Mike and Helen Snowdon and their family offer you a really warm welcome, a chance to totally relax and a wealth of information about enjoying the English Riviera and the surrounding area.
