Looking for a relaxing stress free break? I found the Captain's House on line and instantly booked it. Set next to the River and across the bridge to a few pubs shops and the harbour this historical place had all the character you would expect. The walks and the view are very beautiful and the sound of the river outside... More

On entering our room I drew the heavy gathered net curtains back to look at the view,& to let some light in. Im sorry I forgot to pull them back again.... More

I would not normally review somewhere that I spent probably less than 30 minutes visiting, but since a lovely day out was spoilt by our visit to this establishment I have felt compelled to look it up on Tripadvisor and to add my pennies worth. It was an absolutely beautiful day and having walked the lovely coastal path to the... More

We chose this B&B as it's on the SW Coast Path route. We stayed 1 night but never again and do NOT recommend it. Our twin-bed room was tiny; VERY uncomfortable beds; there was a basin (very old fashioned with a curtain around the edge of the basin to the floor - it took me back to what you saw... More

Cream tea in garden was lovely. Very dark in the hall and stairs, but in keeping with the age of the house I guess, . Did not like the dark eklectic kwerky decor much.The double bed in the Captains room had wood under the mattress which made it extremely hard and uncomfortable. Room and bathroom were clean, but no hot... More

We called by here on way back from a lovely walk to Watersmeet. The heavens had just opened to torrential rain and we were in need of a cream tea!! Not impressed when we were asked for £10 even before we had tea,which was not the best of scone,jam and cream. A most unusual place,lacking in atmosphere and will not... More

Quite surprised to be asked for the money before we had put our suitcases down. Cold wet weekend in April and no heating - with a riverside location that would otherwise have been beautiful it was totally spoiled by the bone chilling cold. We went to the Bath Hotel two evenings just to get warm - booked for three nights... More
