Lancercombe Farm - Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #20 of 33 Sidmouth B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 5, 2011

Excellant service, nothing too much trouble, very friendly & helpful.Wonderful farmhouse breakfast. Location very peacefu, pretty garden with great views. The bedroom was tastefully furnished with high quality bed linen.A nice touch was that we were offered a cup of tea & a slice of Nicola's homemade lemon drizzle cake on arrival.
We can't rate this B&B highly enough

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the King Size bed.

We chose Lancercombe Farm for its location while househunting and found more than B&B. We found charming hosts; comfy beds we didn't want to get out of in the morning; breakfasts with zero food miles; homemade jams and juices; a woodburning stove aglow to welcome us back after a day of house viewing; and ...... we could go on. It was perfect for us and clearly perfect for our fellow guests whose company we also enjoyed. We've decided to buy a house far enough away that we can come back to enjoy more of this special place to stay.

Our 2nd visit to Lancercombe Farm and we were again delighted with the gorgeous room and relaxing ambience. The log fire was always blazing in the guest sitting room - very cosy.
Nicola's breakfasts are excellent - with their own apple juice, sausages and eggs.
A very special place .....

Stayed at Lancercombe farm for two nights in September. Nicola and Simon were very welcoming and there was homemade cake and tea to greet us on our arrival. Its a lovely place and will definately be visiting again, hopefully next year. Had a tour of the farm, and the breakfast in one word is amazing.
For an evening meal Jack in the Green is lovely and for an the best devon cream tea, would recommend the woodland tea rooms, although i believe its only open peak season, but being being a big cream tea fan, these have to be the best ones!

Having just returned from Lancercombe Farm we can't recommend it too highly and we will definitely return ! Nicole and Simon are charming and welcoming hosts who go out of their way to make their guests feel relaxed and comfortable. Their beautifully and sympathetically restored Georgian farmhouse has a dedicated guest sitting room, dining room, comfortable bedrooms and immaculate en suites - add to this a delicious breakfast made from produce from the farm and you have everything you need for an enjoyable stay. You might like to try meal at the Golden Lion or the Jack on the Green whilst you are there. Book early, with only two rooms you don't want to be disappointed !

To say it's a 'working farm' might give the wrong impression - it's idyllic and quiet. A lovely room with double aspect, very comfortable bed and sheets, and a great view over the garden. Excellent breakfast. We were made to feel very welcome. No chintz. You'd need to drive to nearby Sidmouth or Honiton, or walk along the river to The Golden Lion at Tipton St John for good dinner.

Having not stayed in a B & B (we usually "do" hotels) it was with some trepidation that we booked 3 nights at Lancercombe Farm (based solely on previous reviews)!

This has got to be one of the most welcoming establishments we have stayed in. A Georgian/Victorian farmhouse that has been sympathetically restored and to a very high standard. We were welcomed with tea and homemade cake. Our room was bright and fresh with a good en-suite shower room with a very nice added touch of Spa Sanctuary accessories.

The breakfast was brilliant - very fresh and local fruit salad, a full English with fresh eggs from the free range chickens, sausage and bacon from the free roaming pigs accompanied by toast made from home made bread! Tea and coffee were plentiful as were the fruit juices.

Our only disappointment was that we had to leave on Sunday - but not until Simon had given us a tour of the farm!

Nicola and Simon are very welcoming guests and nothing is too much trouble. We will return!
