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. Their home is spick & span & our ground floor room was large with all that one would require & more-there was tea/coffee/chocolate provided with milk & local... More

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...

Having stayed here before, we knew exactly what to expect, private parking, good food etc. So this time while visiting the area with friends we had no hesitation in hoping we could get a couple of rooms at fairly short notice. Luck was on our side and when we arrived we were greeted with a pot of tea and some... More

Can't fault it. Excellent from the tea and homemade cake on arrival, best breakfast, beautiful room with a very comfortable bed, and really helpful and friendly hosts. Would recommend dining at the River Cafe canteen in Axminster and The Holt in Honiton. Thank you Simon and Libby

My wife and I usually go for hotels but went here with friends on their recommendation and it's changed our perspective . The rooms were unusually decorated and furnished and immaculately prepared whilst the breakfast choice and quality was excellent.

In the area on business and found SWH via Tripadvisor. From greeting, to room and superb breakfast, it was excellent. A lot of thought and detail has been put in by the hosts...and it shows ! Simon and Libby are great hosts and they really care.

We were fortunate to have chosen Swan Hill House for our stay in SW England while visiting River Cottage HQ. The accommodation was first class in every aspect and Simon and Libby could not have been friendlier hosts. The selection available for breakfast was extensive and of the best quality produce, expertly prepared by Simon we wish we had bigger... More
