Many thanks for the review and the kind words about the quality of our customer service - it's always nice to know we've left a good impression! We understand your feelings regarding price, however August is peak season and most accommodation providers won't take a single night booking. We do however, but it does incur a small premium for our... More

David and Rachel are the perfect hosts. They have a lovely B&B in a perfect position to explore Exmouth and the surrounding area. I had a super nights sleep. The bed was so comfortable and the room spotlessly clean. Lovely breakfast too.

David and Rachel are perfect hosts and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. We have stayed in two different rooms and both have all you would need, the larger front room... More

It's hard to know where best to begin. David and Rachel are the best of hosts - attentive without being fussy - their B&B is friendly, cosy and relaxed while attaining the highest standards of cleanliness and service. The breakfast was outstanding! We stayed with our three children and as the beach is a mere 3 minutes walk away, it... More

You will find it difficult to find a better B&B. The owners, David and Rachel, are so welcoming and helpful The whole premises is very clean. The room was also comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Good location, 5minutes walk to the seafront and town. Highly recommended and we will be stopping again next year, if not before. Thank You...... More

My husband and I stayed at The Swallows for one night. The B&B is in a great location - easily walkable to both the town and the beach. The room was perfectly clean and comfortable. Rachel and David were very welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was superb. We plan to stay here again when in the area.
