The absolute tops in B&B's, beautiful house,Judy and Hedley were friendly, attentive hosts, nothing was too much trouble, spotlessly clean everywhere, comfy warm room, fantastic breakfast, ( we did'nt need to eat all day), very close to Axminster, and within easy reach of the Jurassic coast.

I stayed at Highfield House between the 19th and 24th of February whilst attending a course at Axminster Tool Centre which was approximately one mile from the B & B. I haven't had huge experience of B&B accommodation and therefore am unable to compare with other similar places in the area. However, it is hard to imagine a more comfortable,...

I would highly recommend Highfield as a place to stay to visit the local area and of course the River Cottage experience. The rooms were modern, clean, very comfortable and well presented. The breakfast was amazing. Can Judy come and cook our breakfast every weekend please? You really made us feel very welcome and as if we were staying the...

Judy and Hedley are great hosts. Not only in their prompt reply on enquiring if there was a vacancy but also in helping to organise a taxi to river cottage and ensuring that we arrived at river cottage on time. The breakfast was a good spread including a filling cooked breakfast and lots of tips about what to do in...
