“Fantastic”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We stayed at Spillers Farm for 4 nights, iAugust, to include a trip to River Cottage, in Axminster, on the 18th. Bridget and Keith made us very welcome, as did Merryck the lovely retriever and Sila the gorgeous black and white cat. We met the sheep and Marlene the pig and all the chickens, too! There was plenty of space in the room with double aspect windows with glorious views over the farm and surrounding countryside. There was a beautiful posy of sweet peas to welcome us in the room, and thoughtful extras like proper mugs and glasses, in addition to extra toiletries in the en suite, which was also a good size. And the breakfasts were amazing - their own sausages, bacon, eggs and tomatoes. Delicious! We took days out to the Seaton Tramway, Sidmouth and Lyme Regis, which were fun. We were very lucky with the weather, as well, which did help! The whole stay was truly wonderful.

Four of us spent one night here and we all wished we had booked for longer. Would definitely return, would definitely recommend it and we will stay again. Bridget and Keith were perfect hosts, breakfast was delicious, rooms spotless with lots of extra touches. Deserves all of its excellent ratings.

Booked here as on River Cottage list as booked for a day course. A real bonus, lovely welcome and tour of gardens and livestock . Hosts had time to talk and listen , Room spacious and comfortable. Breakfast just the right way to start the day. Would recommend it to everyone who is in the area and looking to book accommodation to start their stay in the perfect way

My husband booked a surprise night away for us last weekend, and earned all his brownie points!
Have been recommending Spillers Farm to all. Bridget and Keith are a really lovely couple, and genuinely deserve all their excellent reviews. We were made to feel so welcome by them (and of course by Meyrick the dog), we stayed in the double bedroom with wonderfully comfortable bed, the en-suite had everything you could need and both were so clean (as a cleaner I'm afraid I do tend to look!!) We had a walk around and met the animals, my husband even gave the boat a trip around the lake! Keith does a lovely cooked breakfast and a great omelette and Bridget's jam and marmalade, well what can I say! We can't recommend their hospitality and accommodation highly enough. We will definitely be going back.

I cannot rate this place highly enough! Spillers Farm was recommended to me by my Aunt who had stayed there the previous year and I can only echo all the other positive reviews shown on this site. Rooms were spotless, tastefully decorated and extremely well equipped. The attention to detail was exceptional for a bed and breakfast and all the animals round and about the place was a delight, especially for the children. Home made jams and a delicious breakfast rounded off our perfect one night stay. We will definitely be back if Bridget and Keith will have us!

Thanks to Bridget and Keith for great hospitality, a beautifully clean and comfortable room and delicious home made (in every sense of the word) breakfast! We had the double with shared bathroom which was no problem at all and spotlessly clean. It was great to hear from both Keith and Bridget about their escape from the big smoke and how they have built this delightful smallholding into a sustainable, and sustaining, B&B. Home reared, cured and cooked bacon, sausages and eggs were a real treat. We stayed whilst visiting the River Cottage HQ - so it was great to see real life animal and vegetable growing in action, not just the show garden at River Cottage! Highly recommended.

Thank you Anna for your lovely review. We are always delighted when guests are interested in our lifestyle and we are always happy to take guests around the farm to meet the animals or see the vegetable garden as we did with Anna and Nigel. Spillers Farm is more than just our house and job, it is our passion and we enjoy telling people about our version of "The Good Life!" Thank you again Anna for your review and for not mentioning the weeds in the veg garden! ;0)

We stayed at Spillers farm for one night whilst we explored Lyme Regis and surrounding area. We booked the king size en-suite room for ourselves and our son. It was a lovely large room with fabulous views over the farm. Our king size bed was absolutely enormous and extremely comfortable. Our little boy had his own single bed at the other end of the room which he loved. Everything was beautifully presented and very clean. The en-suite had shower gel, facial wipes, tissues and lots of towels. The room had a kettle and tea, hot chocolate, fresh milk and even fresh local coffee were provided. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming and the breakfast was delicious. We even got top tips on making home made jam! We ended our stay with a stroll around the lake accompanied by Meyrick the dog and we even got to cuddle the very friendly sheep. We would thoroughly recommend Spillers Farm and will definitely be making a return visit ourselves.
