I've been meaning to review this B&B for months. My fiancé and I stayed with Sylvia and her family for 2 nights at East Raddon just after the bank holiday at the end of May 2013. We were visiting for our friends' wedding at nearby Lewtrenchard Manor. Upon arrival, we were greeted with yummy homemade cakes, scones & tea. After, we got settled into our room which was huge! The bed was very comfy and we had a lovely ensuite, Slippers were provided as were lots of toiletries, homemade shortbread & fruit + info on the local area, all making it feel very homely. We had nowhere to go that evening, but Sylvia booked us a table at the nearby Clovelly Inn (I think that was the one) which was about a 15 minute drive away. Food there was lovely, massive portions so you may want to share a main and a side between two of you! The wedding was not until 2pm so the following morning Sylvia cooked us a lovely cooked breakfast to set us both up for the day, using produce from the farm. We then did a reckie of the church and Manor. Once showered and dressed up, Sylvia even dropped us down to the venue (I was worried about getting my heels muddy!). We had a key & a torch to find our way back to the B&B later that night. On the second morning, feeling a little tired & slightly hungover, Sylvia made us another wonderful breakfast and Charlie & Chloe (her children) showed us around the farm (I'm slightly animal mad so was in my element! Ask them about Steve the Lamb!) I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone wanting to stay in the area.
