This is a great place to stay in Exmouth. Rachel and David are great hosts, very friendly. The room was very clean and was serviced by them each day of our stay. A welcome touch was the provision of bottled water each day. The guest house is in a great position, being 3minutes walk to the seafront and just ten... More

The location to the seafront was very good 3 or 4 minutes walk. The accomodation was very clean and fresh looking and although the room was not large it was comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities and toilitries provided in the bathroom. The dining room was bright and airy and the breakfasts were very good with a good choice... More

We stayed for one night on 8th May and we were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome from David and Rachel the owners. They had lots of information on the area to hand in the dining room, including maps and books. Our room was spotless, warm and cosy. We had a lovely tea tray and a very comfortable bed.... More

We had a lovely weekend away at The Swallows. The breakfast was very nice. It's just a 5 minute walk to the beach so a very good location to visit Exmouth and the surrounding area. The owners were very attentive and happy to offer advice for best places to eat or places to visit.

Suited our requirements perfectly as we only wanted to stay overnight, somewhere nice and close to the sea. Great location. Bedroom we stayed in clean and cosy. Best bit was the breakfast which was brilliant. Best reason to stay here! Our hosts were very nice and accommodating. There is parking round the back, which is useful but be warned it... More

We have just returned from a short break at The Swallows in Exmouth. It was a lovely place with a very welcoming feel given by David and Rachel the landlords.
