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.

We found The Swallows to be very clean, friendly and welcoming. It is only a short distance to the beach with loads to do for our family. The breakfast was really good and the snails in garlic option was a real surprise at the end.

We stayed one night on 22 July 2013. Big mistake. Should have stayed a lot longer. Lovely, welcoming people, lovely clean, smart and pristine house with the added benefit of parking at the rear. When, not if, we return to Exmouth we will certainly stay at The Swallows again. Very convenient for the beach and the town itself. 10 out... More

Like a previous review we stayed at the Swallows after having attended a funeral. Long trip so decided to make a weekend of it. The Swallows is a very comfortable guest house located just far enough from town to ensure a good quiet nights sleep. Great breakfast all freshly cooked to order. No hesitation in recommending 100%

We stayed at The Swallows for two nights. Sadly it was because we were attending a funeral. This is an extremely welcoming guest house. Pleasant room, albeit it would have been on the small side for a longer stay. Excellent breakfast - scrambled eggs cooked properly not in a microwave - and high quality bacon and sausages. Landlady could not... More

We booked the Swallows for a 3 day quick break. It was exactly what you'd expect from a well run guest house. Nice and pretty room. Lovely breakfast. Lovely lady in charge. Really helpful and fun and friendly. 3 minutes walk to the beach. Finally if you want a great nights sleep and a stroll into town or to the... More
