Cary Court was built over a century ago on part of the Cary Estate. It is a "Plantation" style house, peacefully situated in the leafy Warberries, a quiet conservation area, yet only a few minutes from restaurants, shops, theatre, night life and Marina. Cary Court is a Bed and Breakfast Guest House offering tastefully and comfortably furnished accommodation with a mixture of period and Antique pieces. The bedrooms, some with Four-Poster beds some with King-size beds are all en suite, all have televisions, complimentary beverage trays, hair dryers and free wi-fi. Cary Court is renowned for its "Full English Breakfasts" served in elegant surroundings with views over the Verandah and subtropical garden. There is a heated out door pool ( seasonal - open from the end of May to end of September ) surrounded by south facing gardens and sundecks. There is car parking on site for eight to ten vehicles supplemented by un restricted on street parking.

We booked a family holiday in The White House during the school holidays. What a great place! All the mod cons included in the accommodation, lovely spacious bedrooms both with ensuites. We picked a great week for the weather so managed a dip in the pool, which is just lovely. Linda and Paul are very welcoming hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Location is great, nice walk down to the harbour but a tad steep back up, we used the taxis to return, price is approx £5. We had such a great time, we have booked to return next year!

We stayed in The White House at Cary Court and had a great time. Linda and Paul have provided everything you could think of - and more besides. A great location, set in beautiful gardens with a swimming pool and close to local facilities. A short walk to the harbour and town centre, Cary Court is ideal for a holiday in Torquay.

We stayed in ‘the Link’, the 3 bedroom self catering holiday let at Cary Court. We had a wonderful week in Torquay and the accommodation was top rate. Our home from home was spotlessly clean and with the new guidance that Linda and Paul have put in place it felt Covid safe. The highlights for the kids were the WiFi and the pool, which was perfect for water friendly children. The highlights for the adults was the fully equipped home, with everything we needed for the week. The location is great, in a quite area but only a 10 mins walk down to the harbour - it’s up hill on the way back of course but after lock down we can all do with the exercise ;) Paul and Linda were great, always around to answer any questions but otherwise they left us to it. Very nice place - we would certainly return if we come back to Torquay for a holiday.

We had a wonderful stay at Cary Court/The Link. Linda and Paul are great hosts and their friendliness, attention to detail and local knowledge are second to none. We stayed in ‘The Link’ for a weeks holiday which is a beautiful Victorian building, perfectly maintained, spacious with three bedrooms and spotlessly clean. The swimming pool is a great addition which my two kids enjoyed no end. The location is perfect with a short walk downhill into the town and Marina area. The return walk uphill is short but steep, so a taxi back to Cary Court is a good idea after an evening out. Torquay is a great seaside town with plenty to do for families. We especially liked the nearby Paignton steam train/River Dart boat ride excursion. As a family holiday let accommodation, we would highly recommend Cary Court.

Paul and Linda were wonderful hosts during our stay in Torquay; warm, engaging, and quick to offer tips for navigating or site-seeing when asked. Cary Court is conveniently located within a quick walk to the harbor — quicker if you take Paul’s short cut — with a lush garden and brilliant sitting rooms to relax in. My wife and I highly recommend the Cary Court for your next stay in Torquay. Not planning a trip to Torquay? You should.
