We stayed in Brambles at the Appletree Cottage, which must be considered a mini suite. We had a bedroom, a bathroom, and a living room. Sitting reading our books in this very comfortable cottage, we had an excellent view over Budleigh and to the sea. The owner, Hilary, cooked, cleaned, provided cakes each day and some how found time to... More

Go for the Bramley Room - an ensuite double room with a separate sitting room (complete with DVD player and discs!) Homemade cake on arrival and freshly made kedgeree for breakfast - perfect! Also very close to town.

I've stayed here 3 times now, each time has been great and I'm looking forward to next year. The B&B has a great location, very handy for the centre of the village and so it's easy to get anywhere within a few minutes walk.

I spent three nights over the last weekend here.I can only concur with all the comments about the excellence of this b&b.(It has one of the highest Excellent ratings of any of the venues I have used from trip advisor. Quite justified!). Perhaps I could just finesse some of the comments already made. The breakfast was indeed rather magnificent. As... More

My partner and I spent 5 days in Appletree Cottage with Hilary and Stuart (like we have done for several years now) and as usual had a fabulous time! The weather wasn't playing ball all of the time but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless! Hilary and Stuart are the most convivial of hosts and attend to your every need. The homely... More

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
