David went out of his way to make us valued and nothing was too much trouble for him. The breakfast choice was superb and our vegetarian full English was a...

A beautiful find in the picturesque village of Lynton. David made us feel so welcome on arrival by taking our bags up to our room and inviting us down into the furs lounge for tea and cake. He was very accommodating and shared ideas/ stories on how to make our short trip to Exmoor packed. He was very knowledgable of...

A dismal grey Sunday afternoon in January in Bristol but the forecast looked good on Exmoor for the next three days. I found Southcliffe on Trip Advisor and rang to book. David was welcoming and helpful on the phone, by email and then in person from the moment I arrived. Southcliffe is all that you expect in a top-notch B...

We were made very welcome by David, from the complimentary sherry on arrival, to mints on the hall table, to the range of information for walkers available to borrow. Clean, comfortable room and a good breakfast plus advice on the best places to eat. We went on recommendation from our son and would certainly recommend it to others.

The location was perfect for our sightseeing weekend. The room was immaculate & the host was a mind of useful information. Dave couldn't do enough for us & he helped us to plan our day trips, including the places to eat out.

My wife and I stayed in the southcliffe this week for 3 nights. Since arrival, the service from David was brilliant. Due to off season we were the only guests which made it a very relaxing stay. We were introduced to local activities and restaurants. Maps were also available to use as were walking routes which provided a nice touch....

On first impressions, the place was incredibly clean and tidy. The owners, David and Ceri were quick to welcome us and offer advice on our stay, what was in the area, where the good places to eat were (They were so prepared as to have a map detailing all of these things for us!) After this, we went up to...

Just returned from 2 day's stay. This is probably the best B&B we have ever stayed in - virtual top quality hotel service. No faults at all. Attention to detail second to none. Cannot recommend highly enough. We hope to revisit again, and definitely will if we visit North Devon again.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Southcliffe B&B for a long weekend recently, and cannot recommend the place highly enough. Our room was very comfortable, well-appointed and cleaned perfectly each day; it was nice and warm also (after we remembered to turn the radiator on!). Tea, coffee, biscuits, bottled water etc. were all replenished daily which was a nice...
