Lovely home and the room itself was extremely comfortable, modern and with everything you could possibly need - Netflix included too! The bathroom was really nice, exceptionally clean...

Stayed here for 3 nights. Fantastic B and B. Great breakfast beautifully served, all local produce. Flowers, fruit and a welcome tray in our gorgeous room. Brilliant access for the Tarka Trail. Would highly recommend.

From the very warm welcome to the spotlessly clean room and en suite, to the wonderful breakfast - fresh fruit, lovely cereals, yoghurts and toast, croissants and a lovely chat with Jane. Lots of really nice touches like fruit and biscuits in the room, and toiletries in the bathroom cabinet if you have forgotten anything. Very peaceful location and just...

Jane and Mike made me feel really welcome, despite my daughter having had to pull out of our trip at the last minute. I had an excellent night's rest in a beautifully appointed ground floor suite followed by exactly the no-fuss breakfast that I'd asked for. I was then only charged half price for the stay as I'd been going...

My husband & I stayed at this excellent 5 star B&B. Jane and Mike made us feel so welcome in their beautiful home. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Mike cooked a lovely breakfast each morning and Jane really looked after us. The room was spacious with luxury comforts and we had fresh flowers and fruit in our room....

We stayed here for one night and we wish we could have stayed for longer. Tarka B & B has everything you wish for, lovely quiet location, super clean room and wonderful hosts.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tarka Bed and Breakfast is a family friendly B&B situated in Fremington, beside the Tarka Trail (we have storage facilities for bicycles) which is more or less equal distance from both Barnstaple and Bideford. Our Bed and Breakfast is also just five minutes from Instow by car or bus. We are ideally located for the Tarka Trail. The house backs onto open fields and woodlands with a path running from the house directly to the Tarka Trail and wildlife areas (Gaia Trust Bird Hyde's etc) which you can reach on foot in just five minutes. We are in a quiet spot at the end of a residential road, but in a convenient location for access to shops, pubs, cafes etc with easy transport links. ... more   less
