Arrived after a very long and tiring journey to be met by Sue and Dave who immediately made us feel very welcome with tea and cake, which was a lovely touch.Our room was spotless and beautifully decorated with a lovely spacious shower.This made our stay in Seaton for our small music festival in the Town Hall a pleasure and a hearty cooked breakfast in the morning set us up for the day! Hopefully Hawkeaster is going to be an annual event and we will certain stay again as Sue and Dave's hospitality was second to none.
Thanks Alison&Chris

Great service and hospitality from Sue and David. The twin en suite room was clean and well furnished. An ideal location for exploring the local area and close to local amenities and seafront with a friendly atmosphere and good food

We stayed in Bay tree house in Feb 2013 for 3 nights. We were a party of 3 beekeepers from Ireland. We would like to thank Sue and Dave for their marvellous warm hospitality from the cuppa and cake when we arrived to the excellent cuisine there after. The rooms were cosy, clean, bright and spacious with all the modern amenities. The village promenade by the sea was only a short stroll away where we found any number of pubs and restaurants serving evening meals at very reasonable prices. Bay tree house was such a lucky find for us and we will be returning next year for sure. Thanks again Sue and Dave from Gerry, Mary and JIm

Having just returned from a weekend at Bay Tree House I would like to thank the owners for their hospitality and to thoroughly recommend the accommodation.
Bay Tree House is set in a beautiful location overlooking the sea, a short walk to the town centre and also to the lovely village of Beer. This is a great base for exploring the delights of the Axe Valley.
The rooms are extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean, a tasty cooked breakfast sets the day up perfectly. The hosts are eager to please and an absolute pleasure to deal with.
I look forward to my next visit to Bay Tree House

Myself with a fellow group of nutters who run the Grizzly or cub every year with massive hangovers stayed at the bay tree this year.

The new owners had a very hard act to follow in the previous owner hazel and it takes alot to impress me but I can assure you they did it with flying colours !

Nothing was too much trouble and I mean nothing it was like being at home from home but with someone doing all the chores for you making sure your warm full and cosy the rooms from what I saw were fab, and even after having coming in at all hours they still had smiles every morning a great fried breakfast ready for you and even when we left were sending us out the door with fruit.

extremely hospitible and I WOULD BE VERY SUPRISED to see them eclipsed anywhere for service to guests, however guests seems the wrong word to use because it truly felt like home thats how warm the welcome was.

thx guys see you next year.!

Wow Nick what a smashing review - thank you. Yes, as you say we had a tough act to follow in the previous owner and we wanted to make sure you all enjoyed your stay and enjoyed our hospitality. We are also glad that you liked the revamped bedrooms and that you felt at home here. Your feedback also means a lot because it was the first time we had catered for such large numbers, and as you know running a B&B is a new venture for us, so it is good to know that you enjoyed the both the B and the B! Hope to see you next year. Best wishes, Sue and Dave
