Highfield Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #10 of 12 Axminster B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Our recent stay at Highfield exceeded our expectations and couldn't have been bettered. Judy and Hedley did everything possible to make us welcome and meet our needs from the first to last minute. Nothing was too much trouble and consequently we thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing short stay in Axminster - eating extremely well at breakfast and feeling nicely pampered in the lovely bedroom and bathroom facilities. What a great place to stay - so much more personal, friendly and peaceful than many of the hotels we have stayed in elsewhere. We would love to visit again and recommend that you do if you need a base in this gorgeous part of the English countryside.

This was my first stay,although my mother had visited a few times previously. We were made so welcome and comfortable right from the off: Judy and Hedley have an amazing ability to make you instantly feel like a friend.

Our room was ideal and had everything we could possibly need and the breakfast was absolutey yummy, especially featuring local produce.

I'd thoroughly recommend it.

having just arrived home 30 minutes ago, my feedback is so positive that I felt an urge to capture it now.
Judy and Hedley made this stay special in every way, the welcome,room facilities,breakfast and overall value are what previous reviews stated - all excellent.
do not hesitate in booking a stay here if you are staying in the south west or more likely going to river cottage.
we are delighted to have made this choice.
we can also recommend the indian restaurant in the town centre called the cinnamon and a decent pint the axminster arms.

I would highly recommend Highfield as a place to stay to visit the local area and of course the River Cottage experience. The rooms were modern, clean, very comfortable and well presented. The breakfast was amazing. Can Judy come and cook our breakfast every weekend please? You really made us feel very welcome and as if we were staying the weekend with old friends. We will be telling all our friends and family about this little paradise we found.

Thank you so much

Judy and Hedley are great hosts. Not only in their prompt reply on enquiring if there was a vacancy but also in helping to organise a taxi to river cottage and ensuring that we arrived at river cottage on time. The breakfast was a good spread including a filling cooked breakfast and lots of tips about what to do in the general area.

The room was clean, spacious and we had a great time - big thanks to them :)

Lovely clean and spacious room.
Breakfast to an extremely high standard with fresh and high quality ingredients.
The owners were unbelievably hospitable & friendly and even picked us up and dropped us off at the station and organised taxis to/from river cottage for us.
