I would highly recommend this as a place to stay, it is only a 20 minute walk to Westward Ho! where there are lots of eateries and bars. The breakfast menu...

This year I had to sail from Bideford for the first time and was stumped about where to stay. Found a reccomendation on Simon Dell's website for Lydshaw B & B not far out of Bideford at Northam, and we were not disappointed. It was an ideal place to start our Lundy holiday. Joanne and Jem warmly welcomed us with...

From the warm welcome and a much needed cup of tea after a long journey to the lovely bedroom, with the breathtaking views. Everything spotlessly clean. Breakfast delicious especially the strawberries from the garden. Unfortunately only stayed one night as we visited for a family funeral, but we will definitely be back for a longer break in this wonderful b&b....

We stayed here for two nights as a weekend break. Joanne and Jem couldn't have been any more helpful or friendly; nothing was too much trouble, from lending us walking books to helping me rinse off my wet suit. Would definitely come again.
