How To Find Us 

Our guesthouse is in a tree-lined road just behind Torre Abbey and The Riviera Conference Centre. A short 8 minute downhill walk through the abbey grounds will take you down to Torre Abbey Sands. Follow the promenade and you will reach the harbour with it’s restaurants, bars and shops.

Tip – Use Road Name (Falkland Rd), our postcode is shared with Bath Lane which has very narrow access.

From M5 & A380 – Follow signs for Torquay. When you see Halfords on your right, move into the right hand lane. Go through the traffic lights into Avenue Road and drive straight across the first traffic lights. At the second set take a sharp left into Falkland Road. The Glendower is the first major building on the left (approx. 100m)

From Paignton – Proceed along the seafront in the direction of Torquay. When you see the Grand Hotel move into the left hand lane and turn left towards the railway station. Drive past the railway station and around the corner you have a set of traffic lights. Keep in the right hand lane and drive diagonally across into Falkland Road. We are the first major building on the left.


We have several parking spots in front of our building and to the side. If you park at the side we do request that you park carefully, to either the right or the left hand side ( i.e not in the middle) and as close to our gate/ corner of the building.
