We returned again to stay with Frances at her lovely B&B..we had a great New Year's stay in Colyton.. Frances made New Year special with her fun finishing touches to celebrate New Year. Breakfast as usual was fabulous, nothing is too much trouble when it comes to dietary needs.

Hi, thank you for taking the time to review your stay. The comments on the bathroom door i have noted.. thank you. We put them there at customers’ request as they felt the big sliding door originally there blocked them from keeping an eye on the children bathing etc so easily. I have looked at it and will change the way the doors work. We were delighted to have you here over Xmas and so glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope we can welcome you back here again sometime. Happy New Year. Best wishes, Frances.
