Simon and Libby have an incredible eye for detail and everything is super perfect. From the decor in the individually styled and decorated rooms to Simon’s spectacular but very carefully prepared and well thought out top class breakfast. Everything was perfect even the biscuits that Simon baked and left in a jar next to the carefully selected tea and coffee making facility.
I was inspired to such extend that I ended up creating to as a reminder of our stay. http://www.britishlarder.co.uk/orange-polenta-and-wild-sumac-shortbread/

Swan Hill House is just the best B&B we have ever stayed at ... by a considerable margin. Simon & Libby excel as hosts, the rooms are superb, and the breakfasts are ... well ... they just HAVE to be experienced!

We have just returned from our third short break (4 days) ... and the last item on our agenda was to be sure to make a booking for our next trip!

We really can't recommend this B&B too highly.

Simon and Libby were the perfect hosts with nothing too much trouble for them and the service and food were second to none. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean with fantastic decor. The location was excellent with just a 30 min stroll into Seaton with the local shop opposite and the local pub The Wheelwright with its delicious food just down the road. There is nothing negative at all to say about Swan Hill House , everything was just perfect,so a big thank you to Simon and Libby for making a great holiday a really enjoyable experience.

Divine breakfasts; down-to-earth, friendly and helpful hosts; clean and tidy rooms.

We found Swan Hill House on the River Cottage site - what a find! It surpasses its website photos - our room was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, spacious and the bed was really comfortable. Simon and Libby have found their calling, they are naturally excellent hosts with an inate ability to make their guests stay, an excellent experience. On top of this, the breakfasts were sublime. There is the traditional English breakfast - scrumptious, but also a menu of choices and a 'special of the day'. All served at tables covered in crisp white linen. We will be back...
