This was our second consecutive visit to this delightful place. On our arrival we again received a fabulous welcome from Helen, who provided us with a refreshing pot of tea and biscuits after a long journey. We requested the same room as last year which has stunning views over Babbacombe Bay, and also has the benefit of a balcony that... More

Stayed for a week beginning of August. Lovely b&b, rooms decorated to a high standard and the view from the front rooms are amazing. Just a little disappointed there was no breakfast specials as mentioned on the website. However, the fried bread was the best I've ever had!

A lovely welcome from Helen and Craig. Room with amazing views and bonus of a balcony to watch the world go by on the Downs. Great breakfast, nothing was too much trouble, loved the specials! Excellent and would hope to stay again.

Just got back from our latest stay at this wonderful B&B. Everything was great as it always is, spotlessly clean and breakfasts wonderful with lots of choice. We had a sea view room which was great to sit on the balcony taking in the vista. We will certainly be back again in the future.
