Really would like to keep this place a secret. Wonderful homemade cake and tea on arrival and all I could say was "Wow" when we were shown our room It was large, spotless, had the most comfortable bed, solid classy furniture, a fantastic choice of teas, coffees etc., plus fresh milk (and other drinks) in the fridge, daily biscuit treats...

My husband and I stayed 12/13 August 2015, and the quality was exceptional. Best breakfast in England (possibly the Western World). The bedrooms were beautifully clean and comfortable. I had the best 2 nights sleep I have had in years. Neither of us could fault Swan Hill House.

This is a truly lovely place to stay. The room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable and clean, but not fussy, with great extra touches like fresh milk & drinks in the fridge. The owners were very friendly and hospitable, including booking us a table for a great meal at the local pub, storing our bikes, and plying us with... More

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!

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.
