All positive except , it isn't by the beach! Close walk though and very quiet location central to exploring southwest coast of England. Hosts are wonderful, and very helpful. Breakfast was really good. I'd go back!

Just returned from a week-long stay at Bed & Breakfast by the Beach and have to say I am sad no one is here at our house to make us the scrumptious breakfasts like we had in their home. It's always a true delight yet stay with Chris and John. Immaculate, beautiful, convenient to town and area attractions, we can't... More

Chris and John have thought of everything to make the stay like home, only much better! The breakfasts were scrumptious, and each evening a delicious baked treat was awaiting us. The bed was super comfortable and the... More

This was the 3rd or 4th time I've stayed with Chris & John over the last 6 or 7 years and the experience just keeps getting better. I arrived to the wonderful smell of baking bread and I stayed in room 2; the decor is gorgeous art deco and the bathroom while compact was equally swish in finish. The room... More

We have been coming to this B&B now for quite a few years it's like coming home. Everything you ever need is catered for from ear buds to a glass of wine to a comfy bed to a different home baked cake daily. Christine and John are fantastic hosts nothing is too much trouble.
