What a wonderful B+B. We stayed here twice over the Christmas period and found it to be so comfortable and well appointed. Nothing was too much trouble and Kate is just delightful and helpful. The beds are extremely comfortable and two of the rooms had walk in showers which makes life easier. Breakfast was a proper farmhouse fry up -... More

I stayed at Shave Farm for 1 night as I had got tickets to see Hayseed Dixie in nearby Lyme Regis for my Husband's birthday. The lovely Kate greeted us on arrival, showed us to our room and then went to make us some freshly brewed tea & coffee with chocolate cookies to enjoy in the guest lounge. We stayed... More

Four of us stayed in the self catering cottage for a weekend and none of us could find any fault with this beautiful place. Kate made us feel immediately at home and with the generous welcome hamper and extremely comfortable and well appointed cottage (including hot tub!), our stay only got better. The cooked breakfast in the morning with the... More

Stayed for two nights on route from Cornwall to London. Kate was a lovely hostess offering us tea/coffee and biscuits on arrival and suggesting places to eat in the evening. The B & B is very comfortable, good size bedroom and very clean. Breakfast was up to our expectations. Would definitely stay here again .

Stayed recently to attend a nearby event. Comfortable bedroom with tea and coffee offered on arrival. Delicious breakfast and cosy farmhouse lounge. The George Pub is recommended for a meal in the evening about 15 minutes walk or short drive, be sure to take a torch if walking as long unlit lane back to the farmhouse. Would recommend and stay...

We stayed one night in the Farmhouse at the beginning of August, as we were going to a wedding nearby the next day. We had a very warm welcome from the owners Kate and James, and a lovely pot of tea and absolutely delicious cookies once we had settled into our room. The room itself was quite big, with double...

We arrived late Friday night for a wedding in the local area, upon arrival the lights had been switched on and the suite was nice and warm - I say suite because this was not a bog standard b&b. We rented all 3 rooms at the b&b, myself and my fiancé stayed in the superior room, this consisted of a... More
