“Superb hospitality”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

Pat is the perfect host, a truly magnificent cook and has an easy, friendly manner. The accommodation is faultless, and the setting is very restful. We have never found a better B&B. Excellent value for money, a real treat.

We have stayed at Haxton Down several times and cannot recommend it highly enough. It is a real home away from home. This is a great place to get away from it all and Pat is the perfect host and superb cook. Evening meals are a must.

This is our 2nd holiday at Haxton Down (went 4 years ago with our then 14 month old daughter) - this time returned with our now 5 year old daughter and 2 year old son and wished we hadn't left it 4 years.
Mr and Mrs Burge are extremely welcoming and helpful - such a nice touch after a long journey to be greeted with tea/coffee and scones.
The breakfasts are fantastic and Mrs Burge's home cooking is second to none - we chose to have dinner every night as on our last visit never found anywhere where the food was half as good.
The b & b is clean and comfortable and the surrounding scenery is stunning.
Bedrooms have good facilities.
My daughter was delighted to bottle feed 2 lambs on our recent visit.
Lovely to walk round the farm after dinner each evening as well.
Nearby Barnstaple has some nice shops and would recommend Exmoor Zoo and Combe Martin for a nice fairly quiet beach - both weithin easy driving distance.
Definitely plan to return and have recommended it to friends and family to stay at Haxton Down.

Reviewed 14 September 2008

Haxton Down is located deep in the North Devon countryside, a perfect retreat for anybody who loves peace and quiet.

The accomodation at this working farm was very competitively priced and while it could not be described as immaculate, it was on the whole clean, tidy and perfectly acceptable.

The highlight of a week long holiday enjoyed by my wife and I was the evening meals that owner Mrs Pat Burge served - traditional English cooking at its very best. The portions were huge and again, very competitively priced. Pat proved to be an excellent host in every respect.

Haxton Down is a mile outside the small village of Bratton Fleming and around 15 minutes drive from the resorts of Ilfracombe, Combe Martin, Lynton and Lynmouth.
