We stayed at Sherborne Lodge one day either side of the Easter weekend. Could not have been made more welcome! Both Graham and Alison were great hosts and helpful in every way. It's a great location, close to the town centre but also easy access to the N. Devon Coastal path which is a fantastic place for walking your dog(s).... More

We stayed here when attending a wedding at tunnels beaches - literally 2 mins away. Graham could not have been more helpful. Hearty breakfast, friendly staff. Highly recommended. We are considering going back next year with a group.

We stayed here two nights each side of a two week holiday on Lundy. The owners were very helpful letting us leave our car in their car park for the two weeks. Good rooms very comfortable. Breakfasts very good. We only stayed one night each time but would happily stay here for a week's holiday. It is dog friendly and... More

A very friendly and helpful business run by Alison and Graham. We were staying there due to walking the Coastal path with my Jack Russell and the owners were very accommodating with arrival and departure arrangements. Some places say they are pet friendly but this place lives up to the statement. Plenty of advice given on local restaurants for us... More

This B&B is very very friendly. It's very clean and doesn't smell like an old people's home witch someone has said already. We have just come back from here over the weekend. Tv's are not small but the right size for the room. Free wifi. Great breakfast. It doesn't smell of dogs. I do no what dog smell is like,... More

Excellent location, really friendly owner who was able to make lots of suggestions on places to go and things to see. Lovely breakfast - so filling, no lunch necessary! 5 minutes away from the centre of town and the seafront. Room very clean. Parking a bit tight, but room for enough cars.

I stayed here with my husband and 5 year old for two nights in August. We booked The Sherborne Lodge as there was little availability elsewhere and the place was reasonably priced. What also appealed was that the family room we had had a separate room for our daughter - privacy!! On arrival, the greeting from the owners is warm... More

Freindly helpful staff, good location only short walk to harbour, clean rooms and the one best breakfasts we've ever had! Only negative point is that the decor is old and needs updating but thats reflected in the price. Overall very pleasant stay.

Spent 5 wonderful days here whilst on a touring, golfing trip to N. Devon. Alison and Graham made me feel at home immediately, supplying all the info needed for golf courses, restaurants, things to do etc. I was given a double on the first floor that was roomy and had loads of drawer/wardrobe space. The 'wet room' was a tad... More
