“Charming hosts, excellent welcome break”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Stayed for two nights, excellent welcome from host, couldn't be more helpful. Good clean bright accommodation with superb breakfast. Would stay again if visiting area but Seaton itself doesn't offer much compared to nearby Beer or Sidmouth, however good base from which to travel around.

Dear Melchris2013

Thank you so much for posting a review on Trip Advisor and for your kind comments about the welcome, accommodation & breakfast at Bay Tree House. Seaton is fairly quiet but as you say, it is a good base to visit other places in the area. We are glad you had a relaxing break and hope to see you again soon.

Best wishes from Sue and Dave

Such a cosy and neat little place. We stayed in room 3, very spacious and a brilliant view. Sue & Dave (?) were both very welcoming and gave us some very good recommendations for the a trip along the Jurassic Coast.

Will definitely come again.

It is a least 40 years since I last visited Seaton, had a few days off from work and wanted to use them productively and a chance to reminisce. So looking on Trip Advisor this bed & breakfast ticked all the boxes. On arrival we were warmly greeted by David, who gave us all the relevant information we required, we went up to our accommodation (room 2) and were offered tea & maderia cake which was lovely, the room was very clean and tastefully decorated. I had booked a meal at the River Cottage in Axminster which was only 20 minutes away and can thoroughly recommend it. Had a good nights sleep in comfy bed and a lovely freshly cooked breakfast with an assortment to choose from. The accommodation is well situated for the promenade and town centre and also for travelling further afield. Went on the cliff top walk across to Beer (hasn't changed much!!!) and also to Sidmouth, which has a lovely selection of shops. Hope that David & Sue are successful in their business adventure, it certainly won't be for the lack of trying.

Room Tip: There are some rooms at the front of the building which offer sea views, however, as far as I'm...

Dear Angenika
Thank you so much for posting your lovely review on Trip Advisor. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and had a chance to revisit some favourite places. Thank you for your kind comments about the warm greeting on arrival, the comfy bed and the freshly-cooked breakfast. We do find that our guests appreciate these little touches.

We are fortunate to be so well placed for the promenade, town centre and sight seeing. We are also very lucky to be so handily placed for River Cottage Canteen in Axminster, where the food is excellent as you know! Thank you for your kind wishes for our success and we hope to see you back at Bay Tree House one day!

I stayed here for one night while walking the South West Coast Path. Welcomed by a cup of tea and slice of cake set the tone of my stay. The owners are working hard and succeeding in making guests welcome. A simple, clean room, much good advice and lovely breakfast choices will ensure their success.
