Spent three nights at this charming guest house to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were in the superior twin room which was spacious and contained a settee and easy chair. The en-suite shower room was small but functional. The room was attractively furnished and contained everything needed for a pleasant stay. The breakfast was really good with enough choice from...

Lovely people and perfect location for beach and town alike. Breakfast was everything you could want and perfectly cooked. En suite a little small and had just a shower but I believe the other rooms are bigger.

My wife and I chose The Swallows for B&B for an early Spring two-night break on the East Devon coast and were not disappointed. The location is ideal, five minutes walk from the town centre and beach and yet very quiet. The room was simply furnished but spotlessly clean, comfortable and also warm, which was welcome as the weather was... More

We used as a stop over en route to St Ives. A friendly and personable hostess and an excellent breakfast. Very clean and tidy. Ironically the property appeared better when dark. Pretty lights along the path leading up to the front door. The smallest things make a difference. A painted front gate and repaired latch would help first impressions. I... More
