Up The Creek is a lovely little B&B that in would recommend. The location is perfect for exploring South Devon around the Kingsbridge area. The accommodation itself is set up for a group of 4 (1 double room, 1 twin) with a shared bathroom and a private lounger overlooking the estuary. Carole & Keith were perfect hosts and their breakfast...

Having read the reviews and looked at the pictures, we were really looking forward to our stay at Up the Creek! We were not disappointed.....

We stayed at Up the Creek because the local hotel was full. We soon discovered it was a lucky find. Carole and Keith are the perfect hosts: just the right mix of friendliness and space. The accommodation is the top floor of their home in the village of Frogmore: a most picturesque part if the South Hams in Devon. 2...

We were recommended to stay here by a friend and we weren't disappointed. It's not like usual B&B's as you'll have the whole top floor comprising a double room, twin room, lounge with TV and bath/room room. There was a good selection to choose from for breakfast and Keith & Carol made sure we felt welcome. From the lounge you'll...

We decided on Friday evening to have a weekend break and found this b&b purely by chance and what a find!. From the time we arrived Carol & Keith were very helpful and welcoming, we made a pot of tea and took it out in the garden and relaxed looking out on to the beautiful estuary and surrounding countryside.

If you are lucky enough to book a stay here... You are lucky enough! We only stayed 1 night, wish we were there for longer. On arrival, our hosts showed us around their lovely bed and breakfast. Our bedroom, which was at the front looked out on picture postcard thatched cottages. There view from the rear living room was stunning,...
