A beautiful B &B. We stayed here on our wedding night and EVERYTHING was exceptional. The room was beautiful, clean and tidy, the views were brilliant and the hospitality was second to none with a lovely bottle of shampers waiting for us on our arrival. The next morning we had the most delightful breakfast served with a smile from the lovely Kath and Nick. The experience just capped off our most perfect day in style.

This is a fabulous B & B . Kath and Nick were exceptional hosts who made us feel very welcome during our two day break at the end of September 2012. The house is on a farm and has been recently refurbished to a high standard so it is very comfortable with an amazing heated outdoor pool which really is heated .....we were swimmming in it at 6pm in the evening and it was lovely and warm! If you are looking for something special and tucked out of the way then this is the place for you! That said Holsworthy very close for an evening meal and the Devon coast is just a short drive away....ideal.

This has to be the best B&B we have stayed in. On our arrival Kath showed us around their beautiful home, then brought the most delicious cream tea. Kath and Nick are so helpful and enthusiatic nothing is too much trouble. The pool and tennis courts are an added bonus particularly if you have children. The rooms are very spacious and the beds so comfortable, great showers and towels.
Ratherton is a very peacful location. Kath provides a very varied breakfast menu which is superb.
Nick organised surfing at Sandymouth bay, our first time and we all had a great time.
Nick and Kath just want you to have a wonderful stay with them. We will definitely be returning if we can get in, I think the secrets out, this is a fantastic place to stay.

We have been sampling guest houses and B&Bs in North Devon over the last months and had mixed experiences... but we really loved Ratherton House and Kath and Nick. You have to want to be a bit away from it as it is a working farm and a good drive up a single track road, but we loved the quiet and sense of specialness. The house is beautiful and decorated in a simple and tasteful way - for us white is good and less is more. Nick and Kath were attentive, helpful, chatty and pleasant but never in your face. I would say this was the best we have yet stayed in in North Devon.

Fabulous few days break at Ratherton House. Kath and Nic were friendly, helpful and went all out to make our stay as comfortable as possible - from the delicious cream tea on arrival to booking fabulous local restaurants and organising sufing with hot chocolate at Sandymouth bay. AMAZING BEDS (Great for 18 year old daughter's lie-ins.) Spacious spotless rooms, big fluffy towels, fantastic shower and soft bed linen, perfect after a day of exploring. The choices available for breakfast were great and the fresh kippers a treat. Peace and quiet in the countryside with great garden, pool and tennis court to relax in. A lovely family holiday stay, highly reccomended.
