Gainsboro Bed and Breakfast, 22 Rathmore Road, Torquay, Devon, TQ2 6NY. Tel: 01803 292032


We offer relaxed and informal Bed and Breakfast accommodation in a lovely green and quiet spot close to Torre Abbey.

We are also very close to the beach and all the facilities available when staying in the English Riviera. Resident proprietors, Sue and Stuart, welcome you to the Gainsboro!

We understand how precious time away on holiday or a short break is, so we do our best to make your stay with us as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.

Our traditional Victorian terraced home, built in 1860, offers relaxed and friendly B&B. Our rooms are clean, cosy and comfortable. There is a lounge and garden at the front of the house which you are welcome to use during your stay and free Wi-Fi is available throughout the house.

If you are travelling by car there is free parking available for guests or the railway station is only a 5 minute walk away should you decide to use the train.


We aim to offer both healthy and hearty breakfasts to start your day.

Breakfast is served in the traditional Dining Room at the front of the house overlooking our patio and garden and across the fields towards Torre Abbey. The sun streams into this room in the morning for a cheerful start to the day.

We offer a traditional Full English Breakfast, a Vegetarian option, lighter choices and our Gainsboro Special. All our breakfasts are freshly cooked to order so during this time you  are welcome to help yourself to the self-service buffet which includes: fruit, juice, cereals, yogurt and jam & marmalade.

Gainsboro is proud to have achieved the maximum rating of ‘5’ in the National Food Rating Scheme.
