WOW from the moment we stepped inside, phillip was there to greet us, a huge Devonshire smile. The house itself has 4 bedrooms, 2 doubles, a twin room and bedroom with bunk beds.

Stayed overnight after visiting friends in Charmouth. To sum up our experience of Leigh House would be....super clean, super comfortable and super friendly. Has changed my perception of B&B accommodation and if visiting the area again would 100% stay here. Phillip who owns the place is a real character who is extremely welcoming. First rate.

Stayed here for one night whilst attending a family function in Honiton. Made very welcome. Room extremely well equipped and fitted out. Most comfortable. Excellent breakfast - including items to meet dietary requirements (Coeliac) Would definitely stay here again and recommend it without reservation.
