We had just been invited to a wedding in the area and I used the stellar reviews here on TripAdvisor to choose where to stay. Normally we would choose a hotel but there is not much in Axminster that would really qualify as such and this place was close to the venue. I had provisionally booked for 2 nights however... More

We stayed here for a weekend whilst visiting River Cottage. I can't recommend this b&b highly enough, there is nothing to complain about. The location is great for river cottage, for walking into Axminster or for exploring the local area. The hosts were great and extremely helpful. The breakfast was very high quality with a great choice. The room and... More

My sister and I and our husbands stayed at Highfield House for three nights whilst visiting our grandchildren who live in Axminster. The house is spotlessly clean, warm and extremely comfortable. Judy and Hedley are a lovely couple and made us feel very welcome from the minute we arrived. The breakfasts were delicious and really well presented. We particularly liked... More

My partner and I stayed at Highfield Bed and Breakfast a year ago and I've been meaning to review them ever since because we had such a wonderful time. What stood out about all was the welcoming service, going above and way beyond what was expected and making us feel so at home. As well as that, the breakfasts where... More

Stayed at Highfield House for a night in March whilst we went to River Cottage. The house is immaculate, the room was very comfortable. Very Edwardian and full of features. Judy and Hedley are lovely, fun people who make you feel very welcome. The breakfast was first class... Would recommend to everyone. It is such a shame that Axminster is... More

We stayed here to go to River Cottage, and were really pleased as it lived up to its previous reviews. Judy and Hedley were great hosts, friendly welcoming. Rooms were comfy and warm. The breakfast was great, bowls of fresh fruit (your 5 a day in one bowl), Ten minute walk to River Cottage Canteen, and easy drive to Lyme... More

An immaculate bed and breakfast, with all you need for a short stay. Delicous breakfast served by friendly hosts and a comfortable warm room. Very convenient for River Cottage Canteen which is just a 10 minute walk away. Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast are close by.
