We found West Down through looking for somewhere near RHS Rosemoor. I was very sceptical as the reviews were all excellent but I shouldn't have been. From the first minute we arrived Brenda and Roger treated us as long lost friends. Tea and cakes were offered as soon as we arrived and that set the scene. Our room was more than just well appointed, it had much that multi starred hotels could learn from. From pre drinks through an excellent dinner and 'belt tightening' home made desserts to coffee and mints everything was first class. The location couldn't have been better and as my wife and I sat during breakfast watching the finches, sparrows and woodpecker feed it was an easy decision to plan our next visit to West Down. It is clearly one of Devon's best guest houses and deserves all the awards Brenda and Roger has been given.
