Stayed for the one night for a college course. Val was brilliant and forever offering to drop me into town for a bite to eat or pick up essentials from the supermarket and then pick me up again at a moment's notice. The facilities are top notch, plush and modern and slept amazingly (couldn't eat the free packet of local... More

A mainly sheep farm in the Bredon Hills and a good place for exploring the coast from the vicinity of Bude. The B&B facilities were excellent and the owners Val &... More

From the moment we arrived, Val made us so welcome. She is the best sort of hostess. She joined our lively discussions and gave us an insight into farming life both in her native Scottish highlands and in Devon.Her cream tea alone is worth the visit.! Both rooms are spotless, with everything needed for a comfortable stay, including fudge, numerous... More

We stayed here for one night en-route to visit relatives. We wished we could have stayed longer! The welcome we were given was wonderful - the cream tea delicious! We were delighted with our room and ensuite. It was very comfortable and the decor tasteful. Val went over and above to make our stay a pleasurable one. The little 'extras'... More

Stayed 2 nights in August 2014 in the family room, us and the 2 kids 10 & 7. Lovely room separate to the main house. Good facilities, lots of well received extras, wine, fudge, chocolates and a great en-suite. Val couldn't do enough for us. Lovely cooked breakfast and slept like a dream. Great location to visit Bude, Westward Ho!... More
