My wife and I stayed here for two nights to attend a funeral locally - not a happy time for us but made easier by a friendly greeting, a clean room (if a little dated) and adequate en-suite (if a little compact). Our room was well equipped with everything one would want, tea making facilities, a desk and stool and... More

I stayed here prior to a cycle ride from Combe Martin to Exeter. Jonathan and Colin took care of everything from offering to secure my bike overnight, carrying my luggage to my room, providing tea and cake on arrival to helping me with car parking whilst I was away to providing an extra early breakfast. A lovely B&B. Nothing was... More

Stopped off at this little gem earlier in the year and couldn't wait to get back. Another great stay and Colin and Jon continue to provide a 1st class service. We were so lucky with the weather and the full English breakfast set us up nicely for the day.

Our stay ant this lovely bed and breakfast was only one night as we were walking the coast path. Very warm welcome, spotlessly clean and well sized room with ensuite. Loved the honesty bar, the beer was most needed after the walk. Breakfast was well cooked and generous. The only B and B that offered fresh fruit!
