A mix of Georgian grandeur and shabby chic gives this place a comfortable yet special feel. The interior was great and you can see the owners are still working at some parts of the exterior. I was more than happy with the breakfast .. the home made brown bread being particularly excellent. Yet no 5 star? Unfortunately the shower was...

Fantastic B&B run by a lovely couple. Very family friendly, they even let us use their private lounge for entertaining our little one after breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble, the cooked breakfast is fantastic and the rooms are very clean and well equipped. Has a really nice homely feel to it and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending to anyone.

We stopped at Laston house back in March this year for 3 nights. We had a sea view room on the ground floor and had excellent views across to the Bristol channel. The rooms itself was clean and well appointed with flat screen TV and a nice comfy bed. The breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice and great quality....

Perhaps the bed is a bit squeaky in the very large room we were in but the outlook through the bay windows compensated. Very pleasant hosts, a good breakfast and a nice pub very close by. We should have stayed longer in Ilfracombe, a very pleasant place. Wifi available but not good in room itself.

This large house is run by a very friendly family and has a lovely, easy going warm atmosphere. Extensive grounds and easy parking, large resident's lounge. Good size bedrooms - some are huge - with comfortable bed and good bed linen. A very pleasant place to spend a few nights

We stayed here for 3 nights mid week and loved it. We had a lovely welcome from the landlady and immediately felt welcome. The landlady was really helpful and informative on local things to do and nice places to walk. The guest house was situated perfectly for us and was exceptionally clean and tidy. Although I only eat toast for...

This was a great find. Fantastic house with plenty of parking. This was to be the start of our adventure to cycle the Devon Coast to Coast bike ride and was a great way to kick off. The owners were lovely and allowed us to leave the car there for the 3 days that we were off on the bikes,...

This was our fourth visit to Laston House and it was very relaxing break for all the family. We have now visited in Summer Autumn and Winter and always find plenty to do in and around the area. Abi and Greg were very welcoming, our rooms were immaculate with all the facilities needed. We used the guest lounge and enjoyed...
