“Best one so far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

We have been quite a few times in Brittain and I have to say that this one has been the very best B&B/Guest house so far. We stayed for 4 nights due to a car competition nearby that we participated in and it was a real treat every time we came back to the house. The room and the food was absolutely splendid.

Room Tip: We had the room with the small balcony towards the street and that has to be one of the best.

3rd or 4th time at this excellent Guest House. Located a 5 min walk from the town centre, which means a lot less noise at night. Room was clean, comfortable and had everything I needed for a 4 night stay. If you decide to take the full breakfast, do not plan on eating lunch! Garden and patio area are great to relax in the evening and the guest lounge is available as well. Brian and Sarah can't do enough to help you and offer practical advise for day trips if needed. Should you need them - there is a well stocked DVD library and all rooms have DVD players.

See you next year!

Have just returned from a four night stay at The Parks. Bryan & Sarah can be rightly proud of the high ratings gained on here. It was everything we could have wished for. Stayed in The Selworthy, which was immaculately clean and comfy, the bed being especially so. As it is located on the ground floor, with it's own entrance, the room was ideal for us as we had our woof Cassie with us, so no disturbing other guests with our comings and goings. A nice variety of teas, coffees and drinking chocolates were provided in a selection box, and a nice touch was a small jar containing a few sweets that was filled each day. The Selworthy has a good sized bathroom with a nice large shower. Breakfast was superb, an excellent choice on offer, and really did set us up for the day. Any dietry requests from other guests always seemed to be catered for with ease. The location of The Parks is ideal, being an easy walk to the shops and the sea front. It's also a great place to be based for touring the area. So all in all a great place to stay. We will be very happy to book again when next in the area, and will certainly be confident of recomending The Parks to friends.

Stayed just one night as part of motorike tour of Somerset. Cornwall & Devon. Brian & Sarah are extremely welcoming and friendly. The room at the back was nice and quiet and extremely clean.
Sarah suggested couple of places we could eat....went with little Italian called Faustos (I think), lovely food & very reasonable!
Had a great nights sleep followed by a fab freshly cooked breakfast!
Would have no problem in recommending this B&B...will most def be back!!

Stayed at the Parks as visiting Husbands Mum for the Bank Holiday.,Given a room facing the back which was nice and quiet and a bed which we found very comfortable. We asked for a cooked breakfast which we assumed would be of the size we normally have while away.WRONG - more like a walkers breakfast ! 3 sausages , 2 rashers of bacon etc etc .... Not the sort of brekkie to have before church then lunch out .!!! But hum ,we did clear the plates!!
It was nicely cooked, presented , and tasty as well . Very nice hosts who do everything they can to make their guests have a good stay.
