Description

With a history that’s still visible in its historic features and contemporary touches to make guests feel at home, Sweet Rose is a 5 star barn conversion at Old Manor Farm. Enjoy the best of both worlds with a stay in this one bedroom retreat, which is part of a beautiful 16th century longhouse in the heart of South Devon.

The perfect setting for some time away from the rest of the world, Sweet Rose has an open plan living space that makes a welcome spot to curl up together and chat about your day’s adventures, and if you look up you’ll see exposed oak beams and high, vaulted ceilings that have seen century after century.

When the weather’s warm, step outside and you’ll find a communal garden enclosed with stone walls, and the apple trees from the old orchard add to the area’s charm as you while away sunny afternoons. There’s even a barbeque so you can dine alfresco…well this is Devon after all.

When it’s time to retire for the evening, you’ll find a super king size bed that makes just the place to sink into and forget the world for the night, and the bathroom has its own surprise in the form of a lavish roll top bath for those long bubbly soaks…bliss.

The nearby beach at Watcombe is accessed via a fairly steep slope, however its spectacular scenery and secluded, dog friendly beach make it a great spot for a walk with your pet.

Please note: Sweet Rose can be booked together with Honeysuckle and The Barn to accommodate up to 14 guests.

Sweet Rose is part of the complex which won the 2013 South West Hospitality Awards for the best self catering accommodation and was the runner up in 2014.

Sweet Rose Barn, Torquay

We wanted somewhere with a bit of luxury and dog friendly which isn't easy to find, we found this at the Sweet Rose Barn.

Sweet Rose, Old Manor Farm

We were looking for a dog friendly mini holiday in Devon. The reviews and website images looked fantastic and we most definitely were not disappointed. The Thatched Tavern was excellent, very tasty pies. Cockington village has some beautiful scenery and leisurely walks. Becky Falls was a memorable day out, excellent value for money and a lot of fun! We'll never forget the romantic bath in Sweet Rose and the cosiness of the property. You have a wonderful place here, in my opinion there is nothing you could do to improve! We definitely plan to come back! Thank you x" Becky, Tom and "Barney

We came to Sweet Rose for our Honeymoon, the cottage was beautiful; from its amazing bath to the quirky staircase we loved it! Cockington village is perfect for a picnic; we also thought Torquay Harbour was amazing at night. We will never forget the relaxing atmosphere, friendly people and just how helpful Martin and Kim were (owners). Thank you so much for making our Honeymoon so special, we would love to come back with our family.

After deciding we needed a get-away, we booked Sweet Rose last minute. It had everything we expected and more, it was just perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting down on the seafront; having a nice glass of wine, in the sun, looking at all the boats. Every part of our holiday was memorable, a huge thank you.

We came to Torquay to share the Miss England experience with my sister; Pilgrim's Rest is a real home from home holiday. We have thoroughly enjoyed some great days out especially on the Paignton to Dartmouth Railway! Both the Drum Inn and the Thatched Tavern serve great food, in beautiful locations. Thank you for making our stay wonderful. Hopefully see you again soon!

Sweet Rose is a beautiful cottage; it's been perfect for a break in Devon. We found the food in Torquay was superb especially at the Thatched Tavern and Angels Tea Rooms; there are also some lovely restaurants in Brixham which is only 20 minutes away! It's been such a relaxing and enjoyable break for us here at Pilgrims Rest, thank you!

Sweet Rose

We booked Sweet Rose for a quiet and relaxing stay in order to celebrate Jurgen’s birthday. It exceeded our expectations; such a quiet location with beautiful scenery. It was lovely to be able to have a cosy night in after a day of exploring. We will always remember Torquay Harbour and sitting in the luxurious bath enjoying a glass of wine! Thank you for such a warm welcome, we felt well looked after throughout as nothing was ever too much! We wish you and your family all the best.

Sweet Rose, Old Manor Farm

We came to Pilgrims Rest for a well needed, relaxing break! We thoroughly enjoyed plenty of trips and great food throughout Torbay. Kents Cavern was a very memorable day out for us, it's a must see for future guests! TJ's Restaurant in Paignton was a real gem, stunning views with first class food, you can't ask for much more really can you? Finally, Pauls Plaice fish and chips shop up the road from Sweet Rose is amazing. Best fish and chips we've ever had! From start to finish we felt welcome, and instantly relaxed. Torbay is full of activities and excursions, most of which we managed to fit into just 3 days! Thank you for such a wonderful break, Sweet Rose will always be our first choice when visiting this part of the country.

We wanted somewhere relaxing to stay as a base to explore Devon, this was perfect for us. We strongly advise future guests try out the great local walks as well as Paul's Plaice chip shop and the local bakery, they are fab!

We came for a short break on the South Devon Coast, which is full of unexpected delights. We strongly advise that future guests try out the Rockfish restaurants which are situated in: Dartmouth, Torquay and more recently in Brixham, they are fantastic!

The pictures on the Bluechip website were enticing, Sweet Rose looked very romantic! It certainly lived up to our expectations! Angel's tearoom in Babbacombe is amazing for a delicious cream tea. We also thoroughly enjoyed a glass of champagne in Pier Point down at the seafront. We will not be forgetting the bath in Sweet Rose, amazing. As well as the super comfy bed! Thank you for the lovely, warm welcome, the chocolate cake and wine were kind gestures.

We came to Sweet Rose for a relaxing break, we weren't disappointed! The cottage is; quaint, romantic and cosy. We loved the walk (Watcombe to Stoke in teignhead) detailed in the guide book! It includes; beautiful scenery, nice pubs and isn't too long! We must recommend future guests check out Hanburys fish and chips in Babbacombe, delicious! We'll never forget sitting outside the Cary Arms with a nice bottle of wine, so relaxing! Thank you so much, we don't want to leave. It's been a fantastic stress free holiday, we're extremely grateful

Sweet Rose

We wanted a cosy property which was child friendly and had the countryside close by, this is exactly what we got, with the added bonus of very nice and helpful owners. For future guests, make sure that you do not miss the beautiful beach down at Maidencombe and definitely do not miss Goodrington beach in Paignton as they are a great day out! Thank you Martin for everything; the cake and wine and for helping to organise flowers and cupcakes for my wife’s birthday!
