Reasons for trip


"Stylish and comfortable accomodation" is what is promised and that is exactly what you receive – with a plus.

We first found this lovely place in the summer when their wonderful walled gardens were open to the public for charity. The amount of work painstakingly done by Sarah to achieve this is considerable. With fruit trees, vegetables, fruit bushes, lavender, flower beds, immaculately looked after lawn areas, even a hive, all jostling together with a little summerhouse and the inevitable barbecue, cannot be imagined unless you have seen it for yourself. A fountain tinkles in the courtyard amongst rockery, beautiful hanging baskets and a small greenhouse. And all this as well as running the B & B in conjunction with her husband David.

The four bedrooms are all different; The New England Room, The Print Room, The Copper Room (at the top of the house) where we stayed and where you can peak out over the rooftops and see the old church spire, and the Paris Room. Immaculately clean, all have private facilities and are equiped with generous sized, thick towels, complimentary toiletries, dressing gowns, tea and coffee trays, television (new flat screens) and many other extras in beautifully, tastefully, furnished roooms. Nothing has been too much trouble and it is these considerations that make it stand out from the norm.

Breakfast is a feast of your choosing and one that certainly should not be missed!

Located in the heart of mid-Devon, the property is about 300 years old and while totally modernised retains many of its original features. An added bonus in this typical Devon village is that there is private parking behind the house. If you do go you will not be disappointed and you will be well looked after.
