The English countryside has so much touristic value to offer - one may think it is expensive, hard to get to, etc. Luckily for us, we booked the... More

We were greeted at the door by Guy and Sue, who helped us with our bags up to our lovely room, which had recently been refurbished. We were given a supply of fresh milk (no jiggers here!) to add to the already well stocked beverage tray. The bathroom was immaculate with massive bath sheets which nearly went around me twice!!!...

Guy's friendly and welcoming reception continued throughout our stay and Sue's charming harp accompaniment brought a new dimension to some of our dining experiences. Breakfast and dinner were first class - better than many high class hotels.Our bedroom was large and comfortable with lovely views over the Devon countryside. The former Rectory is situated in an idyllic landscape that offers... More

Lovely B&B - friendly and helpful owner, with welcoming coffee and mince pies post-Christmas. Bed was lovely and soft, and the room/ensuite were immaculate. Stunning views across the grounds and local hills. And great recommendation for evening meal. Lovely fresh fruit/fruit juice/cooked brekkie and coffee both mornings. And perfectly sized cooked brekkie - not too much, but ample enough to... More
