Stayed at Birchwood House for a two night stay in Painton. Stay from start to finish was first class. Dawn and Steve are excellent hosts, very friendly and welcoming. Rooms are spotless clean and little touches such as free toiletries are very good. Had read a few comments about the breakfasts so we felt had a lot to live up...

Fabulous breakfast, nothing is ever too much trouble for Dawn and Steve. The garden, lounge and dining area are lovely. Fully equipped and clean bedroom although the view was a little limited. Being at the top of the hill really helps work off that delicious breakfast.

The B&B is in a lovely spot for either Paignton which is a short downhill walk away, or better still Goodrington with two lovely beaches. The bad.
