My boyfriend and I booked Backways as it was half way between the surf and our next stop in Sommerset. We called ahead and spoke to Tai to check on amenities and he was very pleasant and happy for us to arrive a bit later. Unfortunately it was a bit rainy so didn't get the full benefit of the beautiful surroundings however we were warmly greeted upon our arrival by Tai who showed us through the house to our room. The house is an old farm house that conveniently splits into two so on the right is their house and the left is the B&B. The B&B has 3 rooms - we stayed in the best one so said Tai and it had an en-suite. The whole place was really really clean and looked like it had been recently decorated although didn't smell like paint so I guess they are just really on top of keeping it spik and span!! I was seriously impressed with how white the whole bathroom was, especially as there is no window to let steam out - not a spec of mold anywhere... The place was decorated with really interesting travel art..... not the usual bowl of fruit type stuff from a million years ago! In our room we had a lovely bed with the richest cotton sheets - felt really luxurious! We had a TV and sofa with complimentary tea/coffee/hot choc/biscuit tray. Plenty of room to put your things away, we were comfortable within minutes! We also had a gorgeous view,despite the rain! After Tai pointing us in the direction of the local chippy for dinner (also good!), he brought me a hot water bottle and the radiators came on as I was feeling the Great British Summer CHILL!! We had to dash in the morning so could stay for ages for breakfast but did manage to have our fair share of the cereals on offer, and cooked English and 2 rounds of toast with tea and juice to match - kept us going!! Again, all the furniture really interesting - made for good chat with the other guests around the breakfast table! I would definitely recommend and will return for sure, hopefully to stay a bit longer next time! Oh last thing is that I left my coat and Tai was quick to pop in the post for me - thanks both - it was short but sweet!
