Lovely clean and spacious room. Breakfast to an extremely high standard with fresh and high quality ingredients. The owners were unbelievably hospitable & friendly and even picked us up and dropped us off at the station and organised taxis to/from river cottage for us.

I must endorse all the other excellent reviews for this B&B. Judy and Hedley made us feel so welcome immediately. The ensuite room was spotless and fresh bottled spring water was provided daily, in addition to the customary refreshment tray. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Add to this the proximity to River Cottage HQ and the Axminster Canteen, which... More

We had the best welcome from Judy and Hedley, they are perfect hosts. Bedroom was very comfortable and it had the most wonderfull shower. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, great location for the town which has of course the River Cottage Canteen, within easy walking distance. We cant wait to go back again. Thanks Judy and Hedley.

We chose this B & B as a result of the previous reviews on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. Our room was comfortable and homely, the location was ideal for our visit to the River Cottage canteen but more importantly we were made to feel genuinely welcome by Judy and Hedley.

I spent 6 nights in total at Highfield. Judy and Hedley are the warmest hosts possible. Each morning, they would be around to chat with me, asked me about my day at River Cottage, made arrangements to have breakfast with me knowing that I was travelling solo. They even drove me to sights around the county, invited me for their... More

This was our second stay at Highfield House and I can't recommend it highly enough. The rooms are spotlessly clean, comfortable, and cosy. There's enough variety at breakfast to provide something for even the pickiest eater and if you choose to sample everything, it'll keep you going till dinner if you don't have time to stop for lunch. Judy and... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at Highfield B&B and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Judy and Hedley are wonderful hosts and made us feel at home. Our room was sparklingly clean and well furnished with a very comfortable bed and well maintained en-suite. Breakfast was amazing... loving the sausages! Highfield is ideally situated a couple of hundred yards... More
