Amazing B & B in a beautiful setting. Six of us were sadly only at Summer Lodge the one night as we were staying as a midway break in our journey to Cornwall. Tim was so friendly and welcoming and served a lovely breakfast after a good nights sleep in the Music Room and the gorgeous Linney.

Great location, quiet lane, lovely setting, easy walk to a great pub, yet accessible to all of South Devon's and Dorset's treasures. Tim and Adrienne were great hosts, relaxed and attentive, and really fun conversationalists. Breakfast was very well done, the house is well maintained. All in all a really good choice. Thanks guys!

Tricky to find - a hidden gem you might say - the whole family stayed there three nights and found the accommodation comfy, the breakfast hearty and the walk to the pub, Tuckers Arms, bracing. Very nice place indeed, just outside Honiton easy access to the Jurassic Coast, and a true taste of the English countryside. The owners turned our... More

We stayed at Summer Lodge 2nd and 3rd January as we were booked in for a River Cottage Luncheon on the 3rd. We traveled to Summer Lodge from London and via Stonehenge and arrived about 6pm. We were warmly greeted by Ady who was very accommodating and not at all troubled by our late-ish arrival. Ady arranged dinner for us... More

This was a great bed and breakfast. The accommodation was comfortable and cosy, and the host was warming and welcoming. We were also served a super breakfast. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you

We came for a visit to River Cottage. Stayed 2 nights at Summer Lodge, in the cosy & romantic cabin in the garden. Great host, arranged for us to have dinner at local pub when we arrived late from London. Lovely breakfast, fresh fruit, warm croissants & a full English fit for a king. The house, garden & views all... More
