“We Had to Come Back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We visited Jan and Robin's place last July, and just knew we had to come back and have another lovely stay at this special place - we had 3 lovely nights here late May and again had a wonderful time; the rooms are so lovely appointed, quiet, such a comfortable bed and pillows (you'd want to stay in it forever but then you wouldn't want to miss the breakfast!) and a fantastic shower too. Beautiful views of the garden and down to the beach and waves. This is a perfect place and you are so well looked after, and you feel pampered, its absolute heaven. A must visit - in fact we are now planning our 3rd trip back again asap, all the way from the Scottish Highlands! Thank you Jan and Robin!

A nostalgic trip to downderry for a brother and sister who had not been here for 40 years. Oak Bee was the perfect location and the stay (2 nights) was fantastic. We were greeted by Harry the cat. The rooms have all that you could think of even binoculars to spy out on the wonderful view. Breakfast (full English / smoked salmon and scrambled eggs respectively) were accompanied by great home made jam. We also were treated to scones and tea on the second afternoon - thank you. If you have any doubts about going you shouldn't - and the blue plate fish restaurant nearby is also Very good. Unfortunately I think it will be difficult to book into again as soon many will discover this great place.

Thank you for your very kind comments! We're delighted that you found Downderry more or less as you remembered it from years ago and that you liked our little B&B! We are certainly lucky to have The Blue Plate on our doorstep - it all adds to the experience of a relaxing break. You would be very welcome should you decide to stay again, especially as you hold the honour of our first B&B sea swimmer this year!

We stayed at Oak Bee last year and were so impressed vowed to treat ourselves to a return visit, this time with our two daughters. Once again, it was an absolutely perfect stay.The location is stunning. Woke up in the morning to the gentle sounds of the waves on the shore and uninterrupted views out to sea and along the coast. The bedrooms are beautifully appointed and we had the best night's sleep ever in the wonderfully comfortable beds. With roomy, powerful showers the ensuites have cornish organic soap and toiletries as well as dressing gowns and soft fluffy towels. Jan's cooking is amazing and breakfasts were a daily treat and fantastic start to the day added to this we were delighted to find homemade cakes and biscuits appearing in our rooms each day - and we had a lovely complimentary cream tea with Jan's delicious homemade scones. Oak Bee is every bit as lovely as the pictures on the website and more. You can take a two minute stroll into Downderry and have a meal at the Blue Plate restaurant - no need to get the car out so everyone can enjoy a drink. We also enjoyed walking along the beach ( tide permitting) to Seaton and the beach cafe. To top it all, Jan and her husband Robin are lovely, friendly, welcoming hosts. We can't wait to go back !

Room Tip: Both are rooms excellent.

After stumbling across Oak Bee B & B on trip advisor and reading the 5* reviews, this certainly is one of those places that lives up to its' reputation! After a long drive and a business meeting, we thought that Oak Bee would be the perfect retreat to start a weekend away and how right we were! Faultless accommodation, fabulous hosts with an eye for attention to detail ....... the home made scones on arrival were just an absolute delight and Tony has not stopped going on about them since! Waking up to an amazing sea view, not to mention a delicious breakfast completely made our weekend, we will definitely be back!

My husband and I spent one night here last year. From the moment we entered we were offered 5 star service from the lovely Jan and Robin. The room was to die for as were the amazing views! Breakfast was one of the best we've ever had! Can't wait to return

Can't recommend this B & B highly enough. Wonderful hosts, beautiful room with a view to match. Jan and Robin have thought of everything and could not have been more welcoming. Would agree with everything previous reviewers have said and we're looking forward to making a return trip.

First and foremost, this is a fantastic B & B with high attention to detail and wonderful hosts. We stayed at Oak Bee Mon - Fri in the Sand Pool Room and were delighted with the presentation and cleanliness. No need to labour everything here in this review as the other reviews capture the key points but it's the little things that make such a difference; organic bathroom goods, lavender bags in wardrobes and under pillows, wonderful cake & biscuits, filter coffee, bathrobes......the list goes on. Breakfast range is wide and the food is delightful, with many home made foods (breads & cereals) available. The location is spectacular and the photos on the website depict the beauty, together with the standard of the rooms, high quality. Jan & Robin are great hosts and looked after us superbly, Oak Bee is a credit to them. Little Enzo (puppy) and Harry the cat also make for an entertaining ad friendly stay !! I highly recommend Oak Bee, one of the nicest B & B's / Hotels I have ever stayed in, and I have stayed in quite a few over the years.
