“Top Class B & B!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2012

We stayed at this B & B for 5 nights & consider ourselves very lucky to have found it!
Marie made us feel very welcome &was very helpful. The Red Room we stayed in was immaculate, clean & comfortable with a great view (including cows) across the valley. Lovely quiet location but also close to the main road.
Breakfasts were delicious & generous with eggs supplied by resident hens so no need for lunch.
Would definitely return & highly recommend!

Stayed here for one night whilst attending a family function in Honiton.

Made very welcome. Room extremely well equipped and fitted out. Most comfortable.

Excellent breakfast - including items to meet dietary requirements (Coeliac)

Would definitely stay here again and recommend it without reservation.

Room Tip: We had the 'Blue Room' which was at the front. Cannot comment on the other rooms but assume...

We had a lovely weekend staying at Leigh House B&B and exploring the local area. The host greeted us with a very warm welcome and let us store our bicycles in the garage (we were travelling by bike). The room was clean and comfortable with TV, tea, coffee and biscuits and a nice bathroom. As a Coeliac my request for gluten free food was happily accommodated with gluten free cereal and toast for breakfast. All of this in a nice quiet setting overlooking a small garden. It is ideally located near Axminster and the River Cottage HQ, a short walk from bus stops linking to Axminster, and Lyme Regis to Weymouth.

Stayed for one night, we could'nt believe what a wonderful place it is. We had the Red Room spotlessly clean everything you needed was there. Beautiful views across the countryside. Bed so comfortable we did'nt want to get up. Breakfast scrumptious. Marie and Phill very friendly. We were going onto Cornwall next day or would have stopped longer. Can'nt wait to go back.

My wife & I stayed at Leigh House for 3 nights last week. We were greeted like old friends by Marie who is a welcoming and most helpful host and had a most comfortable stay in an immaculate room. Marie & Philip lay on a breakfast which more or less does away with the need for lunch(!) and nothing is too much trouble for them. We'd happily stay there again and can recommend Leigh House without reservation. Very handy for Lyme Regis & Jurassic coast trips.

We didn't stay here (planned trip this month), because they refused to book us with our son (age 2), in case we disturbed the other guests. I'm sure this is fine (and perhaps desirable, or typical of B&Bs), but it annoyed me that their promotional material did not indicate they didn't take children. I thought I'd put the review to help other parents not waste their time calling this B&B. I suggest you try somewhere else if you're looking for a family friendly place to stay.

We stayed for just one night at Leigh house as we were having dinner at River Cottage HQ (£10 each way in a taxi).
Marie was incredibly warm, welcoming and helpful. She gave us a quick run down of the room and then left us keys to come and go as we pleased. The Red room we stayed in was large, modern and spotlessly clean. We had fabulous views of the garden and rolling hills and spent a good hour just watching the birds at the feeders. The bed was comfortable and the house was quiet. The bathroom was again spotless and very modern, lovely strong shower and fluffy towels. Breakfast was really tasty, freshly cooked and not rushed. We were also able to decide exactly when we wanted it.
I would definetly recommend this B&B and will be returning next time we visit River Cottage!
