Having had to miss two holidays at Willow Bridge last year through government restrictions, we were delighted to finally return on 11th July for a week’s holiday. Hosts Paul and Sally have used their enforced holiday to make numerous changes to the property. As we arrived, we could immediately see that the old garden fencing had been removed and tastefully replaced; the gardens had been tidied up and the water features were now working. The inside of the B&B has now all been completely refurbished since they opened up in March 2020 and looks so clean and welcoming. The old bar area has been removed, making a much larger dining area, where all tables are now better spaced to keep covid distances, with extra mobile screens available where needed. Outside doors and windows were left open so that the air inside was always fresh. Paul and Sally were very friendly and chatty and always offered friendly advice and help. We had a marvelous holiday and can’t wait to return in September this year. Jim and Jill Watkins

This is a great B and B, run by a lovely couple (Sally and Paul) who went out of their way to be helpful, from catering really thoughtfully for a vegan/veggie combo, to a great tea/cake welcome as we arrived weary and soaked from the South West Coast Path. The location was excellent, the whole place was spotless, the bed was comfy, the breakfast was delicious. If the weather had been kinder, we would have enjoyed the garden too! Highly recommended for walkers and non walkers alike.

Walking with a friend on the Coast Path. This lovely place rates as one of the most friendly B&Bs I have stayed in. Paul and Sally were very accommodating and helpful and showed great interest in our walking progress. The house is in a pretty situation, convenient for visiting the town and for joining the Coast Path.

Highly recommend this lovely B&B! Sally and the team were very welcoming and could provide lots of local sightseeing / walking advice if needed. Decor was stylish, very clean and comfortable...breakfasts were great with good quality food and coffee lovers must try the local coffee served at breakfast! Very close to town but very peaceful!!
