Positive Reviews


Warm welcome from hands-on owner

The owner and proprietor of this luxury property is certainly hands-on. Guests report being warmly welcomed and greeted by him upon arrival, something that only helps to set the overall tone of the visitor experience at this B&B. This thoughtful attention to detail only carries on throughout the property. Guests were delighted by little touches such as biscuits, sherry, Belgian chocolates and even a full jug of milk in their minifridges. Under floor heating, huge bathrooms, wood burners and Molton Brown toiletries rounded out the experience here and only complimented the décor in this elegant country property.


Brilliant breakfasts

Guests have commented that the breakfasts at this B&B are absolutely outstanding. The cold buffet features an excellent selection of breads, cereals and jams, but the made-to-order full Devonshire option is definitely the star of the show.


Easy to find and lots to do

Location can be the downfall of many a country property, but this house is apparently a snap to find. Additionally, it is also within easy reach of the M5, making a day trip to Exeter a breeze. While the Jurassic Coast is also within close proximity, the village of Whimple also boasts a number of pubs and restaurants as well as a rail station.

Negative Reviews


In-room Wi-Fi a struggle

The vast majority of guests were hard-pressed to find fault with their stays here, but the in-room Wi-Fi appeared to be an issue. Many visitors reported access problems.


Small room configuration

With the exception of the Wi-Fi, the in-room amenities were top-notch, but some felt that certain configurations were rather snug.


Temperature control

Finally, a number of guests reported that rooms were too warm for comfort, with quite a few having to open the window in order to cool things down.
