Having had such a good stay before I had to return this November. Helen and Russell offered to collect and take me back to the station knowing that I have mobility problems.

A very welcoming guesthouse where nothing is too much trouble. Very well situated, just 10 mins walk to the seafront. Food amazing, hosts wonderful and everything fresh and clean. Can't wait to stay again.

Visited from Florida for two nights with another couple. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay in every respect....a pleasant room, good food and a very lovely couple who greeted us each morning with a nice smile and friendly conversation... Russ and Helen. Enjoyed our visit to the area, especially Slapton Sands in nearby Devon. Highly recommend the Sandpiper.
