A fantastic place to celebrate a special Birthday. We were welcomed with a pot of tea and shortbread biscuits, climbed 2 flights of stairs to our room which had a view to die for, all along the coast and across to Exmouth. We sat with a bottle of wine on the balcony watching the world go by. The house has a very calm atmosphere and the bed was so comfortable. Every detail was thought of; herb teas, box of tissues, power shower, all matching décor. The breakfast was a dream; melt in the mouth bacon, perfect golden eggs, tomatoes sweet on the vine and fresh fruit salad, hot toast, gluten free if wanted. Our hosts friendly and welcoming. We'd love to come again.
