I am currently working in the Barnstaple area for 3 days a week and I am so happy I found this B&B. I hope you find the review helpful if you’re looking to stay in the area.

I decided to book in with Chrissie and Dave after viewing their website whilst looking for places to stay in the area. After looking at the website pictures and reading about their travels and I’m glad that their experience of B&B’s have rubbed off onto their business. I was looking for a B&B with a friendly atmosphere where I could relax at the end of the day without the hassle and expense of hotel rooms and this place exceeded all expectations.

I currently stay with Chrissie and Dave 2 nights a week and have been staying for 3 months now. I would not go anywhere else, the house is amazing and the fact that Chrissie also has a cleaning business means the room is immaculate. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are always happy to help if any problem occurs (and the shower is to die for!!!).

I cannot recommend this B&B enough. I have read the other reviews and cannot believe it can be given less than a 5 star rating, the house is situated 5 minute walk away from the Tarka Trail, 5 minute car journey from the beach and 10 minute walk from the local shops, the house is on a no through road meaning you can hardly hear a pin drop at night.

I would fully recommend this B&B and I will always stay with Chrissie and Dave whilst working/visiting the area in the future.

We had an amazing stay from the start. Chrissie and Dave were very helpful and recommended a lovely place for us to go in the evening, the room was spotless, very modern and full of lovely touches. We both had an amazing nights sleep!! The full English in the morning was amazing and we will definitely be returning when we visit North Devon again!! Thank you!

The title says it all really. Chrissie and Dave could not have been more welcoming and the room with en-suite was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. There's a wide choice for breakfast, Chrissie emailed ahead to check what sort of thing I wanted, so plenty of what you want and none of what you don't.

Location wise it's perfect for the Tarka Trail (there's a path down to the trail right behind the house!) to get out and bike/walk around this part of North Devon and it's not far from Barnstaple and Bideford.

I'd absolutely recommend Tarka B&B to anyone and already have done to some friends.

I’ve stayed here on several occasions, and each time had a brilliant experience. The owners Chrissie and Dave went above and beyond to make sure I had a great stay. The room is more than comfortable, with a very modern and clean ensuite bathroom. I think I was very lucky to find this B&B and would recommend it to anyone it.
