Lucinda and Edward are 2 warm hearted generous hosts who have a little cottage attached to the main B&B House. Whilst we never tasted their breakfasts as we were self catering everything you could possibly need was provided. The double bed is worth mentioning as very comfortable with super quality linen.The village shop is a 5 minute walk away and... More

This is excellent accomodation. Whilst compact downstairs,it has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We appreciated the tour of the main house and the gardens.Their free range eggs are the best we have ever tasted ! Thank you again. Gerard P

My wife and I stayed at Springfield house during a golfing trip to Devon. It was the perfect home base to travel to Westward Ho! and up to Saunton. We booked the upstairs apartment, which gave us loads of room and was a great place to stretch out and relax after playing golf. Edward and Lucinda are magnificent hosts. Springfield... More

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

Thank you for your lovely comments and a very accurate description of the house! Edward and I very much enjoyed having you all to stay and hope the rest of your walk went well. The 'girls'are laying well, so scrambled eggs will always be here for your return! 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!

Loved having you both to stay. Hope your trip up North wasn't too awful. I'm so glad you enjoyed what North Devon has to offer, there's a lot more to see, so you'll have to come back for a second viewing!! More

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

So glad you enjoyed the cottage. It is looking particularly lovely in the garden at the moment with all the flowers out. You must come back and see it soon. 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!
