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

One word,excellence. My wife and I have just returned after a three day break. Everything about Swan Hill House is five star. My wife and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. Heartfelt thanks to our hosts, Simon and Libby.

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. Simon was also well versed in local restaurants and a source of great advice on choosing where to eat in... More

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.

A brilliant place to stay! Lovely breakfasts, and spotless rooms! After a long journey, I was welcomed with a lovely cup of tea and a piece of gorgeous apple cake! Simon and Libby are great hosts, and I hope to stay here again soon! David

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

We have just had a lovely two night stay at Swan Hill, and everything about this lovely house is 'five star'. The decor is beautiful, the rooms were so very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and full of little extras like the home made biscuits and corkscrew!!(very handy).Simon and Libby were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble.

We have stayed at Swan Hill House several times now and Simon and Libby have always been most welcoming. Everything about Swan Hill House merits its five star rating and will make you want to go back again. We have never stayed anywhere which has a "Specials" board for breakfast!

Have stayed at Swan Hill House for 3 nights now on business and the place cannot be faulted in anyway. Super clean rooms, luxury fittings and decor,and little touches like homemade biscuits and fresh milk in the rooms make it worth staying if your ever in the area. I will definitely stay again when in Devon/Dorset.
