We stayed at the B&B the second time for three nights in Aug 2014 (first stay in August 2013). Chris & John were again very friendly and helpful hosts, we felt very comfortable/pampered. Our room was big, overlooking the garden and equipped with everything you need. It can happen that you find small homemade cakes on a table in the... More

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at this B & B at the beginning of Aug. Our stay was 3 nights and we wished it was longer! It was due to the great reviews on TA that we booked this place and sooooooo glad we did! On arrival, we were greeted by John and Chris who turned out to be... More

You go on holiday to have a good and interesting time, see new places and stay in a nice B&B good bed clean, good bathroom friendly hosts and good food. Having excelled in all area’s at Breakfast by the Beach we have found an addition that we didn’t expect to find. Breakfast by the Beach is an exceptional place and... More

This was our second stay and looks set to be an annual event because we can't imagine we could find better anywhere. Chris and John are the most welcoming hospitable couple and immediately put one in "Holiday Mood". The breakfasts are simply divine and that is an accolade for the array of fruit, yogurts and cereals, before one has even... More

We have just returned from, we think, our 6th stay with John and Chris. As ever, the breakfasts were delicious, the bed comfortable, the room spotless and the cakes yummy. John and Chris are such wonderful hosts every stay feels like staying with friends. The downside is once you have stayed at the B&B by the beach others just down... More

I have stayed at B & B by the Beach several times since my last review. The standard of accommodation and service offered has been consistently exceptional at every visit and I didn't think it could possibly get any better. But as the months go by, Chris and John amaze me at how much they keep improving the overall guest... More

When your name is remembered on sight, that's a sign of caring and welcoming hosts. The standards are now higher than we visited earlier in the year... cleanliness, attention to detail, quality and quantity of food cannot be surpassed. Small touches make all the difference. Home made cakes on arrival in the afternoon; a selection of home made preserves; careful... More

I stayed her for four nights in August and found the it to be a really lovely, thoughtfully presented, immaculately clean and delightful place to stay. The breakfast was wonderful and it is so lovely to sit in the beautiful conservatory watching the squirrels play in the garden. John and Chris are great hosts and I would highly recommend it.

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at B & B by the Beach and it will not be the last. We returned home today after a very enjoyable 3 night stay in a spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished bedroom, with a fantastically large bathroom with both bath and shower. The hosts, John and Chris, take great... More
