Ashleigh House Information


Ashleigh House is uniquely situated in a residential part of Torquay just a five minute walk from the Harbour and shops. Despite being so close to the Town it is very quiet. Guests will not be disturbed by traffic or noisy passers by. Parking in Meadfoot Lane is restricted to residents and guests only making it virtually traffic free, and guarantees a peaceful nights sleep and safe parking. Despite the quiet location, everything that Torquay has to offer is within easy walking distance. Many guests choose to have a holiday from driving as the shops, beaches, restaurants, cafe bars, tourist attractions, theatres and travel links are all close at hand. Indeed, four of Torquay's best restaurants are within a ten minute walk! We have been running Ashleigh House since 1992 and have found a winning formula of clean, comfortable and well appointed accommodation at realistic prices with some of those little extras usually associated with more expensive accommodation. We want our guests to leave us feeling that they have received value for money. With four rooms we can ensure personal attention and a homely atmosphere. Three rooms have en-suite and our large family room has its own private bathroom. All rooms are comfortably furnished with good quality furniture and bedlinen and well maintained. All rooms come complete with colour TV, clock radio, beverage tray and towels and are cleaned daily. Here at Ashleigh House we take breakfast seriously. The buffet table offers a range of cereals, fresh fruit, yogurts, cereal bars and juice and a selection of teas and coffees. Then guests may choose either the Full English breakfast or pick from the Light Breakfast menu Each is freshly cooked to order. We have a small garden at the front of the house, with views across to Torquay toward Dartmoor. We are ideally placed for everything that Torquay has to offer. The shops, beaches, coastal paths and transport links are all within easy walking distance.

My name is Dawn and I have been welcoming guests at Ashleigh House since 1992. In that time I have established a reputation for comfort, cleanliness, hospitality and a delicious breakfast at 'value for money' prices. I enjoy meeting people and helping guests to make the most of their visit to Torquay. Having been local for so long, and having sampled all that Torquay has to offer, I feel confident to advise and give recommendations on the local attractions and the area. Torquay is a lovely place to live and I am very lucky to be able to walk to the beach whenever I wish which makes me feel as if I am on a permanent holiday. Guests will also meet my faithful companion 'Hector' the springer spaniel, who will gleefully welcome all arrivals.

Ashleigh House has been welcoming guests since April 1992

Unfortunately, Ashleigh House is NOT suitable for people with mobility restrictions. It is situated at the top of a short but quite steep hill. There are several stone steps leading to the front door. There are no ground floor rooms nor is there any access assistance to the upper floors.


  • Road from From A380 (5.0 miles)
    Upon reaching Torquay head for the SEA FRONT. At the sea front turn LEFT. Keeping the sea on your right side go past the PRINCESS THEATRE. Turn LEFT at the mini roundabout. Turn LEFT at the clock tower roundabout. AT the TRAFFIC LIGHTS turn RIGHT into MEADFOOT ROAD. Follow Meadfoot Road until you reach a sign for LINCOMBE HALL HOTEL on the left. IMMEDIATLY after take a sharp RIGHT turn into MEADFOOT LANE. Ashleigh House is the second on the LEFT.

    I would also suggest pre booking the taxi as none wait at the station.

    Walking from the station will take between 20 - 30 minutes

    I recommend getting a taxi. It will take about 5 minutes and cost around £8.
