This area of Devon is beautiful, and I would highly recommend a trip to it. I based my booking at the Captain's House on the description given. I was disappointed to find a lot of it was inaccurate. I've listed out some of the reasons for my low rating below. Room was not ensuite as advertised WiFi was not available... More

When we first arrived at this B&B we thought it was a lovely location and looked pretty from the outside. Unfortunately, inside it's dark and smells damp. We both found the man a little 'off' and he wasn't very amenable. We were bombarded with questions about what we wanted for breakfast the second we walked in, as if it was... More

We called here after a walk by the river for tea and a bite to eat, as a sign outside suggests we could do that. After ordering 2 ploughman's ( there was no menu and it was like pulling teeth finding out what was on offer), I asked if I could use the toilet. I was informed I could if... More

On the back of the room door was a sign saying that if you had to leave early due to illness, death etc then the establishment would charge for the whole of your stay. This should have been a warning! Very dated room full of frills and dour decoration. It really would not take much to update it. We had... More

The b and b is in a beautiful location on a river, there is no hotel parking you just have to find a spot along the road and hope for the best. The rooms were dated but had character and we're clean. The pillows were the worst I have ever slept on like hard boards with lumps (the captains room).... More

Jules & I booked in @ this charming, welcoming B & B for 5 nights & were welcomed by the lovely owners - Josie & Cliff - our dreamy Edwardian ground floor double bed room with en-suite was delightful.... We'd most certainly stay again when in this glorious part of Devon....

On behalf of our walking party from Gerrard cross in Buckinghamshire. We'd like to express our gratitude for all 14 of us that enjoyed the hospitality, tasty genourous food portions at breakfast. Very comfortable rooms and the view from our windows were delightful! The owner were so kind and even dried off our wet walking clothes (on the couple of... More

Small room but clean and tidy, a little bit dated, breakfast wasn't great we had the full English which was quite basic, tomatoe, fried egg, cheap sausage and a slice of bacon. We have had better from a cheaper b&b. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

Quaint old house and a good base for a day or so. Cliff is an interesting guy with a good back story. Rooms are basic and comfy. Nice breakfast too. Nice welcome and farewell. I rather liked its eccentricity.
