West Colwell Farm
Ranked #1 of 1 Offwell B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 22, 2010

the rooms were excellent, well appointed and in person were just as good as they looked on the website. They were spacious, well appointed and immaculate
Frank and Clare were excellent hosts and we spend a good couple of hours chatting on the Sunday morning. They are very knowledgeable about the area and were able to make suggestions on how to fill or spare couple of hours. Their list of restaurants and eating places was very useful.

The quality of breakfast was very good but it was a bit limiting. The cooked breakfast was very exact and you could not have more of one thing and less of another. The homemade bread was a nice idea but I was not keen on it.

Nearby on the Sunday and Monday evenings it was difficult to find anywhere open to eat which was a bit of an issue.

Our second stay at West Colwell Farm-tempted back by Frank's delicious blueberry pancakes! Lovely peaceful place with good suggestions for eating and run by a couple who obviously enjoy what they are doing! Very comfortable accommodation and lovely decor.

West Colwell Farm B&B is in an idyllic setting. The room we had was just lovely and having access to a seating terrace outside of the bedroom an added bonus, especially as the weather was warm and sunny. To sit outside with the beautiful view across the peaceful valley created the iceing on the cake. The hosts were so hospitable and the breakfasts excellent.

Owners very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful to the point of even arranging a surprise birthday cake for my husband as it was his birthday on the night we arrived. Communication prior to the stay was excellent and owners directions to the B&B were clear. We stayed in the Blossom room which was very clean and pretty. Bed was very soft and comfy.
Cooked breakfast was made for us in the morning and scenery is magnificent.

Stayed at West Colwell in July for a friends wedding - they were getting married just down the road. We knew is would be in the middle of no where, and it is, but that is one part of its charm. Fantastic welcome, and fab cake and tea. We have one of the rooms up in the roof, and it was a perfect size with perfect furniture, my only downside was it did get a little warm, as you could not have the windows open if it rained. So we were a little stuck. But loved the fab steps to see the cool view and the stars at night!

Breakfast was just spot on with amzing local food and yummy bread - kept me going throughout the whole wedding on the saturday!

I would have loved to have stayed here longer and gone for walks etc, however shame the village did not have a local pub!

Perfect B&B for our trip - many thanks

Received a warm welcome on arrival with some homemade cake and drinks. Rooms were spacious and in pristine condition, felt like we were the first people to stay there. Windows gave wonderful views of countryside and we had a private patio area. Excellent choice of breakfasts that were all freshly prepared. Entirely comfortable and relaxing stay.

A brief two night stay in the Blossom Room, a cheery welcome & introduction from Carol complete with tea & Frank's home made cake, a really was a nice touch together with a concise explaination of what & where which covered all essential points. Breakfast is excellent & cooked to order with many delicious & locally sourced options.

Our room Blossom was located above the ground floor B&B accomodation in the well planned & attractive eaves of the B&B barn conversion with some creaky floorboards we were conscious of not trying to disturb our fellow downstairs guests after 9pm. My wife claims she heard the header tank dripping all night, so perhaps that filler valve needs some adjustement to fill it quicker & kill the drips?

Our attractive & very clean room was well presented with the touches expected from a quality B&B the queen size bed was Oh so comfy. The room is enhanced by exposed beams emphasising the country barn style of the accomodation & it works very well. Natural light in the Blossom room comes from various small but adequate skylights, the modern bathroom is enhanced by a good sized shower cubical, quite suitable for two.....

A well managed quality B&B in a tranquil location with fine attention to detail with owners who are quite charming, we would willingly return & endorse this B&B for those seeking quality a peace.
