I am currently working in the Barnstaple area for 3 days a week and I am so happy I found this B&B. I hope you find the review helpful if you’re looking to stay in the area.
I decided to book in with Chrissie and Dave after viewing their website whilst looking for places to stay in the area. After looking at the website pictures and reading about their travels and I’m glad that their experience of B&B’s have rubbed off onto their business. I was looking for a B&B with a friendly atmosphere where I could relax at the end of the day without the hassle and expense of hotel rooms and this place exceeded all expectations.
I currently stay with Chrissie and Dave 2 nights a week and have been staying for 3 months now. I would not go anywhere else, the house is amazing and the fact that Chrissie also has a cleaning business means the room is immaculate. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are always happy to help if any problem occurs (and the shower is to die for!!!).
I cannot recommend this B&B enough. I have read the other reviews and cannot believe it can be given less than a 5 star rating, the house is situated 5 minute walk away from the Tarka Trail, 5 minute car journey from the beach and 10 minute walk from the local shops, the house is on a no through road meaning you can hardly hear a pin drop at night.
I would fully recommend this B&B and I will always stay with Chrissie and Dave whilst working/visiting the area in the future.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tarka Bed and Breakfast is a family friendly B&B situated in Fremington, beside the Tarka Trail (we have storage facilities for bicycles) which is more or less equal distance from both Barnstaple and Bideford. Our Bed and Breakfast is also just five minutes from Instow by car or bus. We are ideally located for the Tarka Trail. The house backs onto open fields and woodlands with a path running from the house directly to the Tarka Trail and wildlife areas (Gaia Trust Bird Hyde's etc) which you can reach on foot in just five minutes. We are in a quiet spot at the end of a residential road, but in a convenient location for access to shops, pubs, cafes etc with easy transport links. ... more less
