“Perfect!”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

What a delightful B&B this is. Extremely clean and well maintained with a very hospitable host. It was perfect having a separate purpose built cottage with our own entrance. Room had everything you'd need and a very comfy bed. Ensuite bathroom has a large shower. Nice lounge area to relax in as well. Delicious breakfast with local produce. Excellent value for money, would definitely recommend and would return if we were in the vicinity again.

We booked this B&B because it was close to River Cottage and we spent 3 nights here. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom modern and clean, but we were a little surprised that it's a freestanding cottage and not part of the main building. Breakfast was very good but we had to go around the back of the main house to the breakfast room and it was quite cold and drizzly so it was a bit inconvenient. I think the location close to the road could be an issue for some, at times it was positively dangerous exiting the property because of a lack of visibility. A mirror on the gatepost would be a help - I noticed the place next door had one.

Don't really get all the rave reviews. I thought it was a pretty standard B&B and room was much smaller than I expected. Wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer than one night. Unless you sleep with all the windows closed, a lot of traffic noise from the road it is on. I expected something more rural and peaceful from the website.

Room Tip: Only two to choose from. One seems smaller than the other.

Dear RoshLondon
I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at Deanswood as your other communications had indicated that you had. You stayed on the bank holiday Saturday which as I think you realised is an extremely busy time here in the West country. Our road B3165 was busier than usual with holiday traffic and the local farming community who are also very busy at this time. We are conveniently placed for Lyme Regis and not far off the A35 and we enjoy sea and country views. As regards the bedrooms of which there are only 2 as this is a small family business ,the arrangement where the 2 rooms are together with their own entrance suits couples and families with older children very well. One room is smaller and less expensive but nevertheless accommodates a king size bed. The other room has the superking size bed and both face the back garden well away from the road.I' m sorry you didn't "get it" but you can't please all the people all the time.

We stayed for two nights as part of our touring holiday. Although an A road is outside the property, the locations of the rooms ensure a peaceful place to relax. Plenty of garden to wander in, view of the sea across the road. A friendly greeting on arrival, beautifully appointed and clean, comfy room. Smashing breakfast a good choice of local food. Spacious sitting areas both inside and out.
Really nice and excellent value for money.

Thank you for your lovely review and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and the weather was particularly kind. Deanswood is actually on the B3165 which is the Crewkerne Road for anyone trying to find us. I hope to see you both again soon.

I stayed here as I was visiting the river cottage and the service was excellent! It was so nice on arrival to be asked what time I would like to have breakfast, rather than being told. The location was a little out of the way which meant we did have to drive every where. However, we didn't mind as the views were stunning. The breakfast was yuummmyyy and fresh. I would definataly stay here again.
