We stayed here for a couple of nights around a friend's nearby wedding. When we arrived it was hot and sunny and we were offered tea in the beautiful garden by the river. What an amazing view down the river and what a cool place to live. In between wedding events we sat in the garden and enjoyed it -... More

After visiting several of the excellent B&Bs mentioned in Sawdays Special Places in Devon,over the last couple of years, we were looking forward to Beach House in Topsham. What a disappointment! Our large double room certainly had an old fashioned bathroom- meaning no shower or toilet-though a urine sample bottle had thoughtfully been left in the cupboard. Apparently we were... More

We've just stayed a couple of nights here for a young cousin's wedding (much recommend the Turf across the estuary on the Sea Dream), and had a lovely time. The bigger room (of two available) is really outstanding and has a marvellous view over the Exe, including said Turf. Breakfast was good - grapefruit and the works - and the... More

We like staying in very old family houses. This one has an amazing view down the River Exe and even in winter the garden is fabulous. We were made to feel very welcome and while there is no shower, the bath had plenty of hot water and the bed in the very large double room was very comfortable. The room... More

Like some B&Bs, this is a large comfortable family home where the owners have decided to run a small business for part of the year. This is not a hotel - this is an opportunity to stay in a fabulous house, next to the river exe with a view all the way to the sea. The double room is particularly... More

After seeing the other review I felt duty bound to comment that the other traveller was not alone in the reception he received. This thoroughly marred our stay. We felt as if the people running the place really did not want vistors in their home and for some reason have had to. They may have welcomed the twin set and... More

Found this B&B in Alastair Sawday, Special Places to Stay. The room was large and pleasant. The room was freezing! The bathroom tired and old fashioned, no shower. The bath towels were so old they were as hard as cardboard. Breakfast was very poor. When checking out I was forced to sign the guest book! I simply wrote 'nice house'... More
