Sue and Derek are out of this world, Sue's breakfasts are to die for, after one I didn't need to eat for 10 hours, the décor is pre-Raphaelite and wonderfully done, Sue thinks of everything and they are both so helpful and welcoming.

If it's peace and quiet you're looking for, look no more. The views, the quiet, the warmth of Derek and Sue's welcome ensure that your holiday is whatever you need it to be, even when you oversleep, are an hour late for breakfast or when the dog is sick all over the carpet. It is wonderful to go to a... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights in December.... the room was brilliant. It was clean, warm and welcoming. The place is magical and the food is just as wonderful! Thank you so much for a lovely stay, we'll be back! x

This was our second stay at The Travellers Rest and we will be returning again. Sue and Derek are the perfect hosts and we guarantee that you will not find a better breakfast anywhere. The Travellers Rest is nestled in the heart of the North Devon countryside. The property has retained most of its original features and the views from... More

What an incredibly unusual place. An old church conversion is nothing new but the gothic features in this one are still in place and it has been lovingly and meticulously converted into a warm, homely guest house. The owners, Sue and Brian Pope are painstaking in their attention to detail. They probably offer the best breakfast in the whole of... More

Travelers rest old church is tucked away in the Devonshire countryside.....a hidden gem! We spent two nights in the West Suite to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The room is amazing and very quirky. Loved the decor, atmosphere, facilities, oh and the complimentary sherry (yum!). However note that there is a bath with shower attachment in this room, rather than a... More

Lovely rural location with rolling devon hills around, quick car ride down the local country lane and your into Barnstaple, with some lovely beaches and towns nearby. The location itself makes it such a relaxing place away from the rush of normal life. The B&B is excellent, and travelling with a young family you can go for the west suite... More

The location was perfect for our ancestral trail centred on South Molton & the stunning coastal scenery and walks were an easy drive. Breakfast at the enormous long wooden table was superb, freshly cooked using locally sourced food. You could choose the enormous full English or yoghourt and fresh fruit, depending on the mood of the day. There are excellent... More

This is the place to get away from it all and enjoy a fantastic location. It offers a perfect place to rest and forget about work. The breakfasts are out of this world, beats any hotel that I have stayed at and that includes those globally. Mein Hosts are perfect, couldnt ask for a better couple. Always making you feel... More
