About Glendower

Your Hosts at the Glendower Bed and Breakfast

Your hosts Bob, Lesley & Carla took over the bed & breakfast on 30th March 2015 after moving from Darwen in Lancashire. Having owned and run a contract packing business in the town for over 30 years, it was time for a change. During many visits to see Bobs brother and family in Torquay we would always end up saying the same thing, wouldn't it be nice to be able to live somewhere like this. After a while we decided to make it happen, we closed the packing business and our photography business which Lesley ran, sold our house and made the move. What a big decision that was. Carla who also worked with us in the packing business decided that she, together with her daughter Ellie, wanted to come too. What a great result. It is now our business to make sure you get as much out of your stay in Torquay and the beautiful English Riviera as we have.

We can recommend and book restaurants, order taxis and offer a wealth of information on where to go and what to see both in Torquay and also in the surrounding area. 

Please check out our reviews on Tripadvisor to see how our guests enjoyed their time with us. 

We all look forward to welcoming you to the Glendower and know, you are going to have a great time.

The English Riviera

Torquay is the ideal venue for family holidays, short breaks, conferences or as a base for exploring Devon. Torquay is a place to relax, to soak up the atmosphere, to take in the scenery, the parks and the gardens and to enjoy the experience of a holiday in a classical English seaside resort, at all times of the year. Torquay’s waterfront is the focus of life in the town. Here you’ll find the palm-lined promenade, seafront gardens, a lively harbour and an international marina. There is an abundance of pavement cafes, pubs, restaurants and nightlife, good quality shops and a host of attractions to suit every interest.
