“Great building, great people, great time”
Reviewed 27 March 2008

I found it hard to find as it is a little away from the sea front. But when I got inside I was greeted to a professional propieter that was obviously very experienced in the B&B trade. The rooms were so clean and comfortable. The grounds were stunning and the whole atmosphere had a very welcome homely feel to it. The price was great (i would have paid more) I even asked for a sandwich and it was taken to my room at no extra charge! (being an American I felt the need to tip however) My tip was reluctatntly accepted! (gotta love the Brits) My early call was on time, which I requested and I came down to one of the best breakfasts I have ever had...They just don't make them like this in the States. My tour around the beautiful countryside of Devon was topped off by a stay in such a great establishment. Thankyou to the staff and the hospitality, it will always be a memory I will hold.

A recently refurbished B&B which stands out from the rest. Spacious rooms, spotlessly clean, large residents carpark, family room available. Huge breakfast - with top ups of drinks & toast! Lovely large victorian house with seaviews, ideal for singles/couples or families.
