I stayed at Sea View with some friends who were enthusiastic returning visitors and I wasn't disappointed. Gill is so kind and welcoming and the breakfasts are the stuff of legend- exactly what you want, freshly cooked and served with homemade bread and preserves. The bedroom was well equipped and comfortable and I loved being able to sit up in... More

Gill really goes above and beyond anything you would normally expect from a B&B hostess. Three of us stayed with Gill over New Year and were so very glad we chose Sea View! Gill couldn't have been any more welcoming and the property is fab - with a wonderful, eclectic mix of objects and artwork all around - including in... More

First found this gem of a place to stay last March but only just worked out how to leave a review. Your hostess Gill, should you be lucky enough to stay here, provides the friendliest and most accommodating welcome. Nothing appears to be too much trouble and the fact that she has many guests who revisit regularly surely bears testament... More

Our room was in the attic very small, bathroom tiny. the room had a horrible musty smell to it and like the review before the bedding was dated and smelly which was a shame because the Breakfast was good with lovely homemade marmalade and breads. The B&B is... More

At Sea View we take all feedback from our guests seriously, which is why we feel it necessary to reply to this singular review. Comments are not factual, there is no occupied attic. Our property is registered within the Land Registry Office as being five bedrooms on three floors, of which the two bedrooms on the second floor have been... More

Our stay at Sea View was extremely enjoyable. We had a warm and genuine welcome from Gill, for whom nothing was too much trouble. The room was comfortable, and there was a proper bath, which is great after a day's walk. The room was well-appointed and maintained, and a good night's sleep was followed by a slap-up breakfast. The B... More

We only stayed one night with Gill but really enjoyed our time at SV. Gill gave us a lovely welcome and made us feel at home immediately. Room was cosy and for the price was perfectly fine for our overnight stay. Breakfast menu was huge and everything served was delicious. Homemade grapefruit marmalade a triumph and everything offered seemed to... More

First class on all aspects from the moment we arrived, Gill made us both feel at home and the breakfast was heavenly each morning and the location could not have been better for our needs, Parking was safe and near, not much traffic but bus stop near if you wanted to venture and www.discoverysafaris.com is a must do around Exmoor....

This was a character cottage with a very welcoming host and nice touches in the room. It was refreshing to be offered a fish dish on the breakfast menu and fabulous home baked bread and preserves were gratefully received.
