We've stayed in many, many B&Bs over the years and I can say without a doubt that the stay in the Penthouse in Victorian House was the best couple of nights of the lot. It's little touches that make somewhere very special: the tea and coffee tray not only had china cups and saucers and heavy glassware, but glass containers of tea and coffee and, gasp, a little cafetiere and a glass caddy of ground coffee! Bliss for a proper coffee-lover. There were more glass caddies of cotton wool and supplies in the bathroom. The bed was big and comfortable and with great bedlinen.
Breakfast was so good my partner felt the need to photograph it! Great sausages - you can tell an establishment by the sausage it chooses! There were home-made bread, preserves and even home-made brown sauce - a first for me. After breakfast the proprietress offered us a complimentary cream tea for later in the day so when we returned from our day around Dartmouth, pretty even in the rain, there were home made scones and jam (and I dare say home clotted cream!) Exquisite.
I couldn't fault the place, the catering or the welcome. Highly, highly recommended.
