“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

After visiting the area before and camping I wanted to stay in a bit more of a comfy setting and boy did I get my moneys worth. A fantastic B&B in a great location and Dave and Sue are lovely hosts. From being greeted with cake to being waved away from the pavement our stay was a wonderful experience and would very much so recommend to anyone and will revisit whenever possible.

Room Tip: Any room I'm sure is a good room but our room 5 was very pleasant and could even watch TV from t...

It was a lovely b&b, the room was clean and the full English breakfast was 'lush' . I would kill for another one! The view from the room was beautiful being able to see the sea, I was made most welcome into the b&b defonatly worth staying there!

Dear Chris 131a, Many thanks for your super review and we are glad to hear that Room 6 made your stay with us just perfect. Our hearty breakfasts certainly satisfied your appetite but we would rather you returned to see us again, than create an act of violence!!! We look forward to your next stay at Bay Tree House and thank you once again for your comments.

We were doing a few sections of the Southwest Coast path so wanted somewhere well rated and comfortable to rest our aching bodies. Just off the seafront and with guest parking this place was excellent. Dave and Sue are excellent hosts. We nicknamed Dave 'Action Man' as he carried our bags up to the top floor, always delivered sundry requests to our room, and sprang out from nowhere whenever we needed something. Lovely room with great sea view and attention to detail. D&
S had heard our next section was closed due to land slip and provided us with a very good alternative route with full guide and map. Difficult to fault! If we had to - lack of surfaces in room/bathroom. And more fruit for breakfast.

We are walking the coast path, and have stayed at over 35 b&b places. This is certainly one of the very best. Fantastic hospitality in all departments. Dave and Sue washed, dried, folded and delivered our walking kit for us too. Thanks so much.

My husband and I enjoyed a two night stay at Bay Tree House last week. Everything was perfect, including the sun which shone on us for the full two days. We received a friendly welcome from Dave and Sue who couldn't have done more to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We were welcomed with tea and cake on arrival and in the room different teas, coffee and local biscuits were provided. We were in Room 3, a bright, spacious deluxe room at the front of the house which overlooks the bowling green and, beyond gives a view of the sea. Both the bedroom and the bathroom were spotlessly clean. Breakfast was served cheerily by Dave or Sue in an attractive dining room. There was a good choice of cereals, fruit and yogurts and the porridge, full English breakfast and omelette sampled by us were all delicious. We know that the B&B business is a relatively new venture for Dave and Sue but we were aware of how they welcomed each guest and were able to give information and advice about areas of interest in and around Seaton. Thank you for a lovely stay and we hope to be back before too long.

Room Tip: Rooms 3 and 6 have lovely bay windows with good views

We attended wedding in Colyton and decided to stay in Seaton. As soon as we arrived at the Bay Tree House we were greeted by Dave, who also very kindly booked us a taxi as we were already running late for the ceremony. When he took us to our bedroom, overlooking the sea, I was speechless. The room was very spacious and beautifully decorated, with a very comfy bed and en-suit. The following morning we were warmly welcomed by Sue who prepared a very scrumptious full English breakfast. It was a short, but a wonderful stay. We would not hesitate to go back, hopefully for more than one night.

Room Tip: we stayed in bedroom no 3.

A late booking for a single business night away and it turned out to be a real pleasure.
Sue and David are super welcoming and have created a wonderful guest house which infact, was far more comfortable and relaxing than almost any hotel I stay in.
The room was large and I would go as far to say beautifully clean and fantasically furnished.
A tremendous nights sleep was followed by a freshly cooked full english breakfast, cooked with local produce.

If you want to spend a few days exploring east Devon, STAY HERE.

I will return with the family and do that very thing.

Thank You Sue and David

Room Tip: Room 3 was top drawer
