I arrived to the warmest welcome, offered tea and biscuits, and advice on the local area. My double room was quietly situated at the back of the house, and after dinner in a beautiful village nearby, I was delighted to return to find chocolates on my pillow, and the opportunity to use an 'honesty bar ' downstairs for a nightcap!...

We have just spent two nights at the Channel Vista and can't recommend enough. The hospitality from the hosts makes it worthwhile alone! It is very conveniently situated close to the harbour in Combe Martin and the central cafes, shops and restaurants. The place is undergoing a phased refurb (restoring and retaining some wonderful features) but has a classic charm...

We were very happy to welcome you both to Channel Vista and were greatly encouraged to know you approve of our long-term plans for this wonderful Victorian house. Hopefully you will return to see for yourselves as things take shape. Your comments on our breakfast menu were much appreciated. Many thanks!

From the moment we arrived Jonathan and Colin made us feel at home. They were so welcoming and gave us fantastic recommendations about the area. The room was clean and comfortable. We also enjoyed our breakfast in the tastefully decorated dining room. I can only recommend The Channel Vista with highest compliments!

An absolute pleasure to have stayed at Colin & Jon's b&b (perfect hosts, genuinely nice guys & attention to detail exceptional!). Made to feel at home immediately and can totally recommend. The breakfast choices were wide ranging and cooked to perfection and all we can say is, we can't wait to come back. Loved Exmoor & local beaches too, plenty...

We look forward to welcoming you back to Channel Vista - thank you for your review. We think it's the little details which often leave the biggest impression. And Combe Martin could not be better placed for exploring beautiful North Devon!

Just got back from an excellent weekend's walking on the South West Coast Path, made even better by having a great place to stay. Colin and Jonathan welcomed us with a warm welcome, tea and cake, and made us feel at home. Breakfast was excellent, and we appreciated (and made use of!) the honesty bar. The renovation of the dining...

Stayed last weekend for 2 nights (2 adults and 2 children). Family room is fantastic as it is actually 2 rooms behind one door. Very spacious main room with a smaller room containing bunk beds for the kids. Beds comfy and extra pillows in the wardrobe. Nice bathroom and the whole suite was spotlessly clean. The hosts were extremely friendly...

It's great to learn you enjoyed Channel Vista's Family Suite which seems to be very popular with our guests all the year round. The newly-refurbished Conservatory Bar offers a relaxed environment where customers may help themselves to a drink if they wish and simply note what they have taken. This operates well - and it's really good to know you...

We arrived early evening and received a friendly welcome from Colin along with tea, cake and a fruit shoot for our son. We asked Colin for recommendations where to eat, that was both both child and dog friendly. Colin then offered to book us a table and taxi. We stayed in a family room which was clean and spacious.

Thank you to Colin and Jonathan for a wonderful stay while I competed in the Exmoor Marathon. Nothing was too much trouble from the minute I arrived to checkout. Inside is very pleasant and the owners are gradually upgrading the whole place as they only took over last year. From the improvements so far it really will be top notch...

We were pleased to know Channel Vista fitted the bill whilst you were competing in the Exmoor Marathon - as you know, half of our guests at that time were also taking part in this popular event. Our newly-refurbished Dining Room and Conservatory Bar seem to be meeting with customers' approval. These two rooms provide an insight into our plans...

It's good to know that despite the practical challenges of a recovering injury you had such an enjoyable experience at Channel Vista. We count ourselves fortunate indeed to have on-site parking and we are always happy to welcome well-behaved dogs such as pup Elsie. We very much look forward to your return - thank you for your welcome feedback.

Channel Vista was just one of several B&B/Guest Houses during a walking holiday on the SW Coast Path. I was impressed by the welcome on arrival - genuine warmth rather than just professional good manners. Loved the decor - not least the dining room with a distinctive blue and white plate theme. Breakfast (salmon and scrambled eggs) was excellent -...
