Love this place and whenever we visit Devon we stay at Springfield House. Lucinda and Edward are wonderful hosts and the breakfast they serve is delicious - fantastic local produce. This place is suitable for both couples and families. Highly recommended!

This excellent B&B is set in a large, rambling period property with every nook and cranny filled with interesting objects and antiques. The rooms are spacious as are the bathrooms. The lounge and dining room offer great views over the estuary. Edward and Lucinda, your genial hosts are there to offer hot tea, freshly toasted fruit bread and later if... More

We stayed in this fabulous b&b for 4 nights. Edward & Lucinda made us very welcome and the accommodation is great - very spacious and comfortable. Breakfasts were so good too. The location is very convenient for exploring all of north Devon with good venues in Instow for eating out. Don't miss the Hockings ice cream!

Stayed for a long weekend at the end of March 2015 with our dog in the self catering cottage, it was spotlessly clean and really cosy, we had a log fire every evening. Its within easy walking distance of Instow with its lovely Deli and great pubs. The owners Lucinda and Edward could not have been anymore welcoming and helpful,... More

We stayed in the main house, which is really beautiful. The welcome was warm, with afternoon tea and homemade ginger cake ready and waiting. Our room was very comfortable and with stunning views over the Estuary. The facilities are great, breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. Would definitely go again.

Fantastic to have to stayed here again over the weekend. Already booked a mini break for May. Beautiful inside and very relaxed. The views from the rooms are amazing and the breakfast delicious! The owners are very friendly indeed and always make us feel welcome. This is the only place we'll consider staying in when we're in Devon. Highly recommended!

Stayed in the cottage, 1 bedroom but perfect size for a couple. Greeted on arrival, they had started a real log fire so it was warm, helped us carry our things from the car even though it was raining. Everything is catered for, even down to supplying some milk, butter and a home made loaf of bread. A wonderful time... More

Dear Phil, thank you so much for your kind comments. It was lovely having you all, including your furry members of family, to stay. So glad the weather picked up for you. You must come and visit us again in the summer when the garden is in full bloom! All the best, Lucinda More

We had the bedroom at the front of the house with views out over the sea, our own bathroom and although not actually in the room it is accross the hallway and very private. Fluffy bathrobes are also provided - not that there is any risk of being spotted half dressed as there is also a large curtain they can... More

We were given details of this fab B and B. Wonderful views. Amazing rooms and service. Friendly and breakfast great. The bathrooms are stunning! A great place to stay and see North Devon. Instow is a beautiful seaside town with a great beach and views. Barnstaple is lovely and for you vintage lovers out there, Donna Flower had just opened... More
