I drove down from Scotland in late January for a two nights stay, in connection with family business in Budeigh Salterton. Hilary made me very welcome in her lovely quaint and homely cottage, she served a great breakfast and even supplied me sandwiches for the road back to Scotland.

Apple Tree Cottage is a perfect B&B in a beautiful place. It isn't full of plastic flowers and fussy furniture - it's homely and friendly, has good beds and excellent bathrooms, lovely views and a pot of cyclamens on ones bedroom table. Hilary, the owner, brings tea and cake in the afternoon, and serves delicious breakfasts - fruit and muesli... More

It also benefits from some wonderful sunrises. Hopefully your journey home was smooth with no airport delays, and that you are surviving your colder climate. Have a... More

I stayed for four nights & found everything first class, even down to the extra touch of a slice of homemade cake on my hospitality tray each day! My bed was very comfortable & breakfast was certainly worth getting up for! Appletree cottage is so close to the centre of Budleigh & the bus route, & for an early morning... More

I recently spent 4 nights at this charming bed and breakfast in the heart of Budleigh Salterton. I loved every minute, and much of this was due to the wonderful hospitality and friendliness of Hilary.

I have now got back home from my 6th summer stay in a row at the Appletree. This year there were two of us, and we booked both the Pippin and Russet rooms. Appletree Cottage B & B is excellent value for money. The rooms are well furnished with everything you would want. Breakfast, served from 0800 to 0900 hours... More

Beautiful place, very nice, lovely caring people who look after you (can't express this enough!), lots of choice for breakfast, house has a lot of character, lots of books and decoration. We stayed at three 4/5 star b and bs in three nights, this was the best and the cheapest. Only downside: wifi pretty slow from our room.

Cycling from Exeter to Hull, this was my first and best B&B. For just £35 I got a great room and a fabulously fruity and varied breakfast. All the attention to detail was there (fresh milk, piece of home made cake in the room etc) as well as a friendly welcome. Top of the league stuff
