Had a great Christmas here, warm welcome and great hosts. Instow is a beautiful quiet location, strongly recommend, good pubs and fantastic local deli. Some nice walks on the beach. Pubs generally good quality beer and food.

I left feeling I should have paid more money for what I had received! .... Being a frequent traveller in 5* hotels, I wasn't expecting much from a B&B experience. However, Lucinda and Edward have created something totally fabulous. Myself, my partner (6ft 7") and my son (6ft 2") stayed in the Linwood room which was just perfect and beds...

Our second trip to the Old School House cottage which is next door to the main Springfield House. We were warmly welcomed by the owners Lucinda and Edward (we we had a number of chats with through the week) and found the cottage to be as quaint, cosy and romantic as we did on the last visit. We booked direct...

Springfield house was the last B & B I stayed in during a 7-day hike of the SouthWest Coast Path from Minehead to Instow, and it proved to be one of the best. Upon arrival, friendly host Lucinda made me a pot of tea and bisquits which I had in the downstairs sitting room by the fire in the fireplace....

Great location about a 5-10 minute walk from Instow. Accommodation was of an excellent standard and like a home from home. We stayed in the Walnut room, which was spacious with a lovely view, our bathroom was separate just along the landing and was again first class. Spotlessly clean throughout. Felt very welcome and at ease. Very tasty Breakfast with...
