A wonderfully located 6-bedroom all en-suite Guest House in Torquay, Devon, and only minutes' walk to the town centre, harbour, and seafront.

This pretty property is situated on a beautiful terrace in the heart of the town yet benefits from quiet seclusion. Early viewings are highly recommended.


The Newburgh Guest House is ideally situated close to ‘Belgravia,’ one of Torquay’s busiest commercial tourist districts. Benefiting from a wonderfully central yet quiet location, it’s only minutes’ walk to both the town centre and the beautiful seafront of Torquay. The local train and bus stations are nearby, with easy access to all main arterial road links connecting major cities like Plymouth and the Cathedral city of Exeter, along with its international airport and the M5 motorway, linking all parts of the UK.


The owners have traded successfully for many years, achieving high levels of repeat business annually. The Guest House benefits from full business rate exemptions. Despite trading with 6 bedrooms, it is operated by only one person without the need for staff. The current owners trade for 9/10 months per year due to lifestyle choice. However, we, the agents, believe that turnover could be improved by opening for longer during the low season and enhancing advertising on social media. Full accounts will be available following a successful formal viewing.
