“Superb Stay!”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

We have just spent 3 nights at the Pebbles and its a fantasitc B & B, in fact calling it a B & B does not do it justice the accommodation, facilities and brilliant breakfasts are equal to those at luxury boutique hotels. Hosts Humfrey and Rosemary are amazing - so welcoming and friendly and only to happy to accommoate guest needs - in our case serving full breakfast at 7am so we could attend a Passing Out Parade at Royal Marines base in Lympstone. This is a wonderful place to stay for a few nights as so relaxing and sea views from both house, rooms and garden are breathtaking. We stayed in the Lighthouse room which was very large and airy, the bed was so very comfortable and had magnificant sea views from both room and conservatory. Budleigh Salterton is a delightful town with lovely unusal shops and some great restaurants and pubs for eating out in the evening. We shall be back!

Room Tip: Lighthouse and Boathouse rooms have magnifiicant sea views and their own conservatory.

We have just spent a couple of nights at Pebbles, in the Lighthouse room, and the accommodation is excellent, and the hosts Humfrey and Rosemary are very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious and set in a beautiful conservatory which was light and airy and had a most wonderful view of the sea.

We had the windows open in the Lighthouse room at night and the sound of the sea on the pebble beach lulled us to sleep - bliss!

Highly recommended in every respect.

Could not fault it, more like a boutique hotel than a B&B. Delightful hosts who have done, and do, everything in their power to ensure guests have a wonderful stay. Location, facilities, food, fixtures, fittings are all top quality. Can't believe some one criticised the Christian ethos in a previous review, it is a joy to have hosts who care so much for their guests. Everything has been provided to make the stay sumptuous; the quality of the linen, toiletries, beds, etc, and the attention to detail such as fresh milk for use with the tea and coffee in the rooms, choice of breakfasts etc, etc. Only disappointment is that Humphrey and Rosemary are leaving, doubt that anyone else can maintain this standard. Thank you so much, we will be back before you leave.

Room Tip: They are all great, I would be happy in any of them.

My husband and I spent three nights at this excellent b&b in Budleigh Salterton, Devon. We stayed in the Lighthouse bedroom which is a very light large room. It has a lovely light bathroom too. The room has a small conservatory overlooking the sea and is lovely to sit in and relax enjoying a cup of tea and one of Rosemary's lovely cakes. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean.
Downstairs there's a large residents' lounge and conservatory overlooking the garden and the sea, where breakfast was served.
Breakfast was wonderful. There was a good selection of various sliced fresh fruits, homemade yoghurt, cereals and delicious cooked eggs, bacon etc. The smoked salmon and scrambled eggs were a great hit with my husband. A vegetarian breakfast was also on the menu. All the bread was freshly baked.
Humfrey and Rosemary were great hosts and nothing was too much trouble.
We have already booked for next year!!
Thank you for a great stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Lighthouse room and it was lovely and bright with great views.

This is a very special place. We spent two nights here and wished we had arranged our trip to spend more time here. Everyone was so friendly - the fishermen with their boats on the pebble beach, the members at East Devon Golf Club and everyone we came across. rosemary and Humphrey made us feel perfectly at home and breakfasts were terrific.
The East Devon Golf Club is a must for any golfers visiting this area.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Boat House room and were very very happy.

My husband, myself and our mothers were travelling the UK for a month in May/June and had arranged to stay for 2 nights at Pebbles. My mother has always held a great fascination for lighthouses so I couldn't go past this place as it had themed bedrooms - Lighthouse and Boathouse decorated rooms, located directly on the beach in Devon! Can you ask for much more?
We arrived on what was our 4th day in England, bringing fantastic sunny weather with us! (apparently April had been unseasonably cold and rainy) We were warmly greeted by Humphrey and Rosemary and were immediately made welcome. Humphrey assisted Lloyd up with our copious amounts of luggage - made easier with the use of the Lift accessible to the Lighthouse room and we oohed and ahhed over the rooms - wandering and taking photos first thing!
We were then invited to partake of tea and coffee in the conservatory dining area and were provided with an amazing choice of home made chocolate or fruit cake! I knew from this moment on that this place was special! :)
The rooms were very very nicely presented. Large and spacious with plenty of room for extra pieces of luggage so you didn't trip over anything. The balcony's off each room interconnected but were separated by a curtain - still very private. The view was breathtaking with comfy chairs positioned to enjoy all that there was on offer! (including crazy people swimming in the freezing cold ocean!)
The tea and coffee making facilities were good with little extras - home made style cookies. The Lighthouse room had an ensuite with a shower positioned over a bath - not modern but very clean and spacious and all you need. The Boathouse had a bathroom with separate shower across the hall outside the room so if you are "frequent user " you might say during the evening hours, you might want to consider the lighthouse room or another with an ensuite attached.

Breakfast was superb each morning at the large communal table! The sideboard contained amazing home made stewed fruits and cereals etc.. Coffee was provided in individual metal carafes so three for us coffee drinkers! very decadent! I had the salmon and scrambled eggs - so nicely cooked and as I am a devout hater of marmalade I think I should add at this point that I was made to try it here and I cant believe I actually loved it! Simply shocking really so if you can, partake of this culinary delight when you eat breakfast here - made by Rosemary of course!
We went for long walks in the town of Buddleigh Salterton and along the coastal path next to the pebble beach and to nearby Bicton Gardens. Enjoyed ourselves immensely and would definitely put this place on the "must return to" list!
A must mention a wonderful place to eat is the "Cosy Tea Pot cafe" - fantastic little place with wonderful and varied selections of home made cakes and other main meal options - such as ploughman's lunches the size of which I have never seen!! Please support the young couple running this place - they deserve to succeed!
And additionally the Feathers pub - The menu seemed extensively delicious - we all chose fish dishes and they were simply to die for - tasted like the fish had only been caught an hour before it landed on our plates! Awesome. And huge servings! Definitely choose here!

Thank you Rosemary and Humphrey for a wonderful and memorable start to our trip!
