My friend and I were looking for somewhere to stay close to River Cottage and found Swan Hill House on the River cottage website. We received a warm welcome from Simon made even better by the delicious cup of tea and lemon drizzle cake. We had a twin room which was extremely comfortable and had everything we needed, including a... More

From arriving at the B & B, Simon opened the door to me and helped me with my case and showed me my room. He asked me to enjoy a coffee and a piece of cake and that was the start of 3 wonderful days staying at their B & B. Nothing was too much trouble from recommending restaurants to... More

Swan Hill House is very homely, spotlessly clean and a wonderful choice for breakfast. A fridge in the bedroom is a real bonus and the bottled water etc. enhances the stay. Simon met us with a nice welcome, a cup of tea and delicious home made cake. Libby and Simon are wonderful hosts and we certainly hope to make further... More

Upon arrival we were met in the car park by Simon who helped us with the bags and showed us to the room. He then invited us for tea and a home made slice of cake in the living room. Room was perfect with everything one would ever require. Very comfortable all round. Breakfast was quite amazing with such a... More

Lovely welcoming hosts, very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the room with the flamingo wallpaper and it was gorgeous - spotlessly clean, comfy bed, large and airy and decorated to a high standard. Home made cookies and tea/coffee in room as well as home made fudge for us to take home on our departure which was a nice touch.... More

This is a fabulous B&B for a stay in Devon. Libby & Simon are great hosts & went out of their way to make our two day stay extremely homely & comfortable.

A fabulous 4 days at this B&B - absolutely the best I have visited in many years. The breakfasts are superb - huge range of choice, with a daily 'special', and all food is home made (even the bread) using local suppliers in the West Country. The bedrooms are beautifully equipped - even the plugs are conveniently placed for charging... More

Lovely hosts, splendid room and amazing breakfast!!! The breakfast is out of this world, particularly the smoked salmon and scrambled egg! The hosts are extremely accommodating. It isn't a particularly small B&B and perhaps has a different atmosphere to other smaller B&Bs but we were very impressed and would certainly stay again! The hosts will help you with any requests...
