Best B&B I have ever experienced down to every last detail. If you have special dietary requirements this is your place. Homemade locally sourced food is superb and Simon and Libby go all out to make your stay a pampered holiday in their beautiful home. I am already looking forward to a return visit. Many thanks.

We booked a one night stay to start off a week of exploring the sights of Devon. Having sampled a pasty on the seafront of Lyme Regis, the weather turned and we decided to head to Swan Hill. On arrival we were greeted in the pretty garden by Simon. He was most welcoming and immediately showed us to our room... More

Another fabulous stay at Simon and Libby's beautiful b&b to escape the rigours of building work at home. From the moment we arrived we could feel ourselves unwinding, especially with the tea and homemade cakes! We had a lovely relaxing stay, sleeping well, and enjoying fabulous breakfasts cooked by Simon which set us up each day for walking in this... More

There were also a number of extras such as tea and homemade cake on arrival, homemade biscuits in the bedroom, soft drinks and fresh milk in the bedroom fridge. A fan... More

This was our second visit, and Simon and Libby are keeping up the excellent standards they have set themselves. A warm welcome started with a pot of tea,home made ginger cake, and cookies in the garden with the sun shining, after Simon had settled us into our room. We had a different room to last time, but it was just... More

Stayed here for one night on a business trip. Was given a room on the ground floor. The room was very spacious, finished to a very high standard with attention to detail, from things like fresh milk in the fridge and homemade cookies in a jar, and a modern finish to the bathroom. The owners were very friendly and welcoming.... More

We stayed at Swan Hill House for 3 nights quite recently. Everything from the warm welcome in the car park, the house, the bedroom, to the breakfasts, is excellent. The house is beautifully decorated, our bedroom was large, comfortable, and very clean. The breakfasts are large and freshly cooked, and there is always a "special" which gives a great alternative...

From the moment we arrived we knew that we had struck very lucky with this choice of B and B. Simon met us with a delicious slice of homemade cake and made us a cup of tea, then showed us to our beautiful room where homemade biscuits and luxury hot chocolate and complimentary cold drinks were waiting in the fridge...
