Although the outside of the property could do with tidying up, especially the garden area and car-park, the overall welcome and approach by the proprietors makes up for this. Good old fashioned honest family orientated accommodation, hospitality and excellent food whereby nothing was too much trouble. Our party was a married couple with their 96 year old uncle and a...

we stayed here a few weeks ago and basically must agree with virtually every review with regard to the hotel in general but do think that the food was excellent the overall ambience created by the owners was wonderful and most certainly if you have kids this must be the place.We were there as a couple and would certainly return...

Stayed here for one night as a couple plus my mother as we were attending a wedding locally. On arrival we found there was a mix up with the booking but this was resolved without drama by Kevin the proprietor who was very helpful. This is not the most modern B&B I have ever stayed in but the room had... More

The hosts were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The B&B is set in a very beautiful and quiet location and is a fantastic place for any age. The breakfast was delicious. We would definitely go again.

We have been returning to this hotel most years since our 13 year old daughter was 2 so the fact that a sophisticated teen is happy to return this year should speak volumes! If you are looking for a swanky hotel then this will not be the place for you. When we first booked I was relieved to find a... More

There isn't a lot of hotel or B&B accomodation in or near the beautiful valley and beach of Branscombe so this hotel scores just for its great location. I stayed there for a couple of nights at the end of cycling trip and it was absolutely fine. The reservations I have recommending it are that some parts of the hotel... More

Obviously a great place for families with children....but it's a great place for grandparents (and even great grandparents!) too. The food is superb, fresh and flavourful vegetables, fresh fish, subtly flavoured sauces, and very good wines. A splendid spot down a Devon lane.

For a relaxed, comfortable family holiday, this is hard to beat! Kevin and Judith made us feel very welcome with their relaxed friendly style. The suite of rooms we were given was just perfect for our family, and the food was an absolute treat - worth a visit for that alone! Although we didn't take advantage of the hotel's child-listening... More

We stayed here back in the Autumn and had a lovely stay with our one year old. Rooms are warm clean and comfortable and have a 2nd room for the cot which is perfect. Highlights were Judiths meals in the evening which we could eat along side our baby monitor in the dining area. Good play area for young children.... More

Am writing this while still here. We wanted somewhere for a few days after a week of self catering. It isn't a slick city centre 5star place, but why should it be in rural Devon? The level of service is excellent, down to the detail of asking me in advance what sort of veggie sausages and soya milk I would... More
