Reviewed August 8, 2013

A great place to stay with or without your dog(s)!! Made my daughter feel extra special too. Warm and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble for Linda and Clive. McPhee is always pleased to see you too!! Great setting with the woodland walk and beach so near by as well as the lovely town. Clive makes an excellent breakfast and evening meal catering for all dietary needs. Comfy spacious room slept very well and it made our family holiday extra special. Well recommended and will defiantly be back.

We're back again! Just love this place! The best food and hosts you could ever wish for. The guest house is clean, the breakfasts are amazing and if you opt for the evening meal you will definitely not be disappointed, it's wonderful (especially the puddings). McPhee, the dog, also adds an extra element of fun. Overall a fantastic place with regular return vistors, including us!

We stayed for three nights over the summer half term break. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts, Clive and Linda, and McPhee (their little dog) was very pleased to meet our two small dogs. Our room was very comfortable with a nice shower room. Everything was very clean and pleasant and, unusually, we both found the mattress comfortable. Breakfasts were plentiful and very tasty. For the last two evenings we took up the offer of an evening meal (at extra charge of £12 each - very reasonable for a big meal) - both meals were delicious and very generous. We would happily recomend Clive's cooking to anyone!!

Our two dogs were very happy and were allowed to wander about and not be restrained in the room - provisions were made so we could feed them and keep their food in a fridge. Also, thoughtful extras like a bowl of water, a towel and a poo-bag bin outside the back door were provided for our use.

A little bar room downstairs meant we could have an evening glass of (very welcome) beer or wine (with an honesty pay system), and was a nice place to sit and rest before dinner.

The house well sited for taking coastal walks or exploring the local area by car. We were very pleased with our choice to stay here and will certainly come back if we stay in this area again. Thank you Clive and Linda for a very pleasant visit.

Booked for 2 nights for the family to stay while at a family wedding / get together.
Lovely rooms provided - very clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were amazing.
Best place we have stayed in in Combe Martin. Although we have family living in Combe Martin and know the area well we can't always stay with relatives.

Great place to enjoy the walking etc in the area and dog friendly.

We have booked to stay again in September when we are at another wedding. Although this wedding is to be held at Sandy Cove hotel and we enquired about staying at the venue - poor phone customer service when we made enquiries and sky high prices there made us decide Channel Vista was a much better option.

We had a very good break with our dog to do part of the coastal path. Our hosts were really friendly and couldn't have done more to help us and make us feel at home. It was well located for the coastal path, had parking and was comfortable, clean and quiet. The local pubs were all nearby and had good food and beer and were dog friendly.

We were very welcome in this large house with several floors and the rooms have the usual facilities although I would have liked a more comfortable shower room and more powerful shower. The Channel Vista is something of a misnomer as the channel is a faint smudge in the distance but that is a minor quibble. Good solid breakfast, with the vegetarian option particularly good and there are two pubs just down the hill on the same side of the road for dinner.
