Outstanding welcome by Hilary, who insisted on carrying our rock buns down from our room to accompany the tea in the garden on arrival (we were walking the Jurassic Coast Path). The garden, whilst small, is incredibly well protected and beautiful to sit and drink tea whilst relaxing after the days exertions. The breakfast had to be experienced, best of... More

This place offered a value for money stay away from Exeter city centre where I needed to be during the day. Upon arrival I was charmed by the location, delighted by the slice of [home made] lemon drizzle cake left in my room and really pleased by the accommodation. I had wanted 'somewhere clean to rest my head not too... More

First B&B on a recent 8 day walk on SW Coast Path. Best breakfast by far - wonderful welcoming host in Hilary, great location in Budleigh Salterton, quiet, clean and tidy. Loads of books if you wanted them, from travel to fiction. Good recommendations on local pub to eat. Smallish room, but enough space for twin beds, and shared bathroom... More

I was looking for a comfortable and peaceful place to stay and spend quality time with my family. After a very long journey down to the unspoilt Jurassic coast, Hilary met us with a warm welcome a cup of tea and comforting carrot cake. Our rooms were perfect, clean, near each other and one had a picturesque view overlooking the... More

I always use this guest house, the location is peaceful whilst being just off the High St. Instructions for arrival in the event that Hilary is out are clear and welcoming. The rooms are always very clean, mine had a scone tea ready for me. Comfortable, unhurried and the breakfasts are very good, high end cereals and a delicious full... More

I cannot speak highly enough of Appletree Cottage. It is spotlessly clean, the breakfasts are great, and the location is in a quiet road near the centre of town but handy for the seafront and coastal path. Hilary and Stuart make their guests very welcome. I have stayed at Appletree Cottage twice now in order to compete in the Budleigh... More

It's good to read that not only did you enjoy Hilary's breakfast but that you found that Appletree Cottage's location was "handy for the seafront and coastal footpath". It's always a pleasure to welcome croquet players to our home and Hilary tells me that she will soon be a croquet expert albeit from afar. We looking forward to meeting you... More

Having read some of these reviews it appears Hilary and Stuart already have an excellent reputation for offering a homely, professional, welcoming B&B in delightful Budleigh Salterton. A hand up with my bags (still trying to master the art of travelling light!), was most welcome when I arrived, quickly followed by a pot of tea and scone. The 2nd day... More

Thank you Jenny for your kind words. We hope your travels in Devon & Dorset were successful. You mention that you found Appletree Cottage to be "good value" and the previous reviewer mentions "excellent value" so hopefully we have found a balance between offering our guests high quality breakfasts in comfortable surroundings but at affordable prices.

We have stayed here for a weekend on a couple of occasions now. The accomodation is spotlessly clean and the rooms are comfortable. The B and B is two minutes walk from Budleigh town centre and it is easy to get to the surrounding areas by car. Hilary serves up a delicious breakfast from the cereals and fruit down to... More

Thank you for your kind review. It's always good when guests return and you mention that it is excellent value. We do try and keep our prices as low as possible and at the same time welcome single travelers. Not only are the sausages from our local farm shop but also the free range eggs. The bacon is from our... More

After a long day's walking the SWC Path, my brother and I arrived tired and a little muscle-sore to this establishment, expecting something pretty ordinary (for the price we had booked at) but not really caring. We were introduced to a delightful and very comfortable room (a twin called 'Pippin') and were greeted with a pot of fresh tea and... More

Hilary M, Owner at Appletree Cottage, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the trouble to post a review. It's good to know that room Pippin was really comfortable, especially after your long day's hike. Pippin is also ideal for walkers because although it shares a bathroom with room Russet it has the use of either a bath or shower. Full details on our web site. Best wishes Stuart More

Hillary makes as good a breakfast as you'll get anywhere, from the freshly squeezed orange, through the cereals, fruit comport, yoghurt, choice of cooked meal, freshly baked bread etc. to the real coffee. You even get cakes and scones placed in your room during the day. The house is charming, very clean and with lots of books to browse through.... More

Thank you very much for such a helpful review. It is reassuring to know that you enjoyed your stay. Hilary does try and provide as wide a choice as possible for breakfast so that apart from the traditional English breakfast there are many other options. You mention the books and they do provide a lot of interest and through this... More
