Big family meeting to celebrate a 70th birthday. We occupied both The Laurels (which has an extravagant kitchen) and The Coach House and were made to feel very welcome by Barbara and Ed. Very clean, comfortable accommodation with large grounds, a joy for the children to run around in. We would highly recommend this venue for anybody wanting a family... More

We have just had the most brilliant 70th birthday celebration for my mother at South Allington house. We were a large family gathering and they made everything so easy for us to organise, nothing was too much trouble, even giving us the size of the ovens in the self catering houses so we could plan what dishes to bring the...

A large house with several types of visitors. The brochure does not highlight that camping is also available so what is expected to be a quite location is in fact very busy in peak season with numerous cars, campers walking across the 'separate gardens' of those paying high prices for self catering accommodation as well as visitors for cream teas....

Fantastic location about a mile from Lannacombe Cove. Lovely old country house and grounds. Very friendly, helpful owners. Room 2, where we stayed was very large, comfortable bed, great view. Total peace at night. Cooked breakfast was very good, with option for cereal and fruit. Highly recommended.

After following signs for cream teas, we were welcomed by an imposing house and lovely grounds. Hopeful, we went inside to order cream teas which is where the disappointment began. There were no signs to where we ordered. We saw what looked like a kitchen and had to knock the door and walk through to a dingy kitchen - where... More

Having seen a sign for cream teas we followed where it pointed. Into the drive we pulled up round the main house. The owner was on his tractor mowing but notice on front door to waive at him. We did and ordered 2 cream teas. Wonderful light scones with home made jam and great clotted cream. Lots of tea. Best... More

My wife booked this by chance while looking for somewhere within easy range of Overbecks (fascinating National Trust property with an absorbing and unusual museum, and a tropical garden with great views). The B and B is in a magnificent Victorian house, with a sweeping drive and five lovely bedrooms - other parts of the house and outbuildings are now... More

We spent 2 nights in Room 2, a 4 poster bed in the main house. The owner described it as the nicest room. Indeed it was a large, very nicely decorated room with good size and pretty ensuite bathroom. Owner and his wife were very nice. Breakfast was fine; fairly standard for this type of accomodation.
