Went to Devon with my husband and my mother-in-law and stayed at the Highwell House. Nothing is too much trouble for Anthea, she is very friendly and will always put herself out if you have any special requests - she is the perfect host. Breakfasts were superb - a choice of fresh fruit, yogurts, cereal or cooked. The full english can also have extras - fried potatoes and beans plus homemade marmalade and preserves for your freshly toasted bread. Orange juice and either a pot of coffee or tea is also provided. Lovely!
A walk around the gardens are a must - chickens, sheep and a horse are in the surrounding areas around the house, together with a vegetable patch as well! Flowers are all around the garden and makes Highwell House an excellent place to stay. Puss (the house cat) particularly liked to lay on the mat in the sun outside the conservatory while we ate our breakfast.
The rooms are bright and clean and kitted out with a kettle and tea/coffee/hot chocolate and biscuits for those early morning or late evening cuppa's and there is fresh milk in the fridge on the landing. The bed was very comfortable and the en-suites are supplied with lovely big towels and shower gel for those who forget to bring them.
We would definitely recommend Highwell House to anyone wanting a place to stay in South Devon.
Thank you for our stay.
