This is one of the best B & B's I have stayed in, a beautiful large Victorian house with lovely grounds only about ten minutes walk from the train station. Our hosts were very welcoming, and kindly gave us tea with real milk and homemade cake on arrival. Our room was spacious, beautifully decorated and practical too, including the bathroom which had an excellent bath and shower. It was a very relaxing and uplifting place to stay. Covid precautions were excellent, including an imaginatively presented breakfast with delicious fruit salad.
Really lovely B&B. The location is perfect- easy to drive to with off street parking and only a 5 minute walk into the town centre; it was very quiet at night. The room was well appointed and impeccably clean as was the large bath / shower room. Sandi & Bryan were incredibly helpful (especially when I accidentally put in the wrong dates when making the booking online and were able to adjust for me). As everyone else has mentioned, breakfasts were fantastic and a slice of cake magically appeared in our room every afternoon. Why would anyone stay anywhere else in Barnstaple?
A lovely spacious room overlooking beautiful gardens in a great location just a short walk from the town centre. Hosts Sandi and Bryan do everything to make sure your stay is safe and enjoyable. Highly recommended.
Booked a late break and came across the Old Vicarage, what a find! From the initial booking, follow up emails all very smooth and easy. A nice touch was the list of recommended eateries in Barnstaple, 3 of which we tried and were very happy with. Sandi and Bryan are great hosts and very knowledgeable about the local area which lead us to explore Lynton and Lynmouth. The room we had was comfortable and had a great bathroom with a fabulous shower. For those worried about Covid, Sandi and Bryan have got this sorted. All very safe. Highly recommended and if we're ever back in Barnstaple, we'll be staying here.
We stayed at the old vicarage for 4 nights. It was a return visit, and was as perfect as we remembered. The hosts, Sandi and Bryan are so welcoming, and thought of everything to make our stay as safe and comfortable as we could wish for. Excellent breakfasts, and very quiet area even though very close to Barnstaple town. Looking forward to staying next year.
