I used the Sandpiper for a one night business trip to south Devon and found it ideal. Homely, clean, well located and great value. I will certainly stay here again, and can recommend the guest house to anyone. Thank you.

We booked this on the recommendation from fellow trippers. The hosts were very welcoming, the facilities very clean. Don't book the room, if you are going to be in 9 ,10 or 11 if you have any trouble with steep stairs, they are very very narrow. The breakfast was very good and the location is very nice walk to town.
