“Causeway Cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

My sister and I stayed at Causeway Cottage in 2006; it was the perfect way to end our stay in England. We were welcomed with tea in the garden, our rooms were cozy, the bathroom was roomy and clean, the food was fantastic. A fantastic get away...planning my next visit!

Room Tip: If travelling with a friend stay in the Terra Cotta room.

Picked here to stay almost at random to split a long journey from the North to the South coast. However, we will definately be back. We (myself, wife and our two teenagers) expected the location - just off the M5 motorway - to be on the noisy side, but we could not have been more wrong. Sitting in the garden sipping a beer after arrival was both serene and tranquil. The cottage is very well appointed and the rooms have plenty of space. Hosts are very welcoming but by no means over-bearing. We chose to have dinner at the cottage and would recommend all to do so. The food (for both dinner and breakfast) was excellent, and well worth it. A great nights sleep was had by all, and we look forward to our next visit.

I stayed here for a night as part of my recent Lands End to John o'Groats cycle ride having also stayed last summer with my wife as a stop over on the way to the Scilly Isles. Both occasions have been excellent: a very friendly welcome, the food is a real treat and the rooms quiet and comfortable. Its location close to the M5 makes it an ideal stop over for those long trips to and from Cornwall. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in the area.

Our first visit was when we chose Causeway Cottage as an overnight break at the halfway point between our home in Shrewsbury & our regular holiday spot in Cornwall. That was 6 years ago and thanks to the warm welcome of Lesley & Robert, the homely ambience and the temptation of the Cordon Bleu suppers, this stop has become, an essential ingredient of every holiday in that direction. On some occasions we have even extended our stay to explore locally, including the Quantock and Blackdown Hills, as well as attending some of Lesley's splendid cookery courses.

Last week I attended Lesley's 'Informal Spring Dishes 2012' demonstration which was, as usual, first class. In two and a half hours Lesley managed to demonstrate eight dishes amongst which were proscuitto and hazelnut bread rolls, butternut, feta and sage rolled crepes, limoncello and raspeberry tiramsu (homemade limoncello!) and tartlets au mango. The eleven of us attending thoroughly enjoyed all the dishes made for a delicious lunch. I would highly recommend Lesley's demonstrations to those wanting some new cooking inspiration delivered in delightful surroundings - I have been many times!

Our journey West is never complete unless we stay with Lesley & Rob at Causeway Cottage. This Spring we had the added bonus of attending Lesley's Cookery Demonstration, which was first class, well organised, excellent recipes, and a great experience. We already have Lesley's four cookery books and can't wait until the fifth edition is published. As usual our stay was comfortable, friendly and the breakfast and evening meal were of the highest standard. We are hoping to reserve places on the next cookery demonstration in the Autumn, which will give us another excuse to stay a few nights. Lesley and Rob deserve high praise for all the hard work they have put in over the years to make Causeway Cottage a 'must place to stay'. Our friends Keith and Marian came along too and on our journey home they couldn't stop talking about the 3 days spent in the cottage at East Buckland.

An excellent B and B. Charming Owners Lesley and Robert Orr were most welcoming and gave us first class hospitality: tea and cake in the cottage garden on arrival, and the next day on our return from a day out. The cottage is a delight; close enough to the motorway for an overnight break but very quite and secluded nevertheless. Guest facilities include a sitting room and the rooms are furnished in comfy individual style. Breakfast was substantial (home made items including fruit compote). Dinners are available by arrangment. We took this opportunity on both nights (bring your own drinks) and were entertained in style to superb cooking (Lesley is Cordon Bleu trained) in the lovely dining room.
