Absolutely amazing! Stayed at rick steins seafood restaurant in padstow after leaving swan hill house, the swan hill house was spotlessly clean, lovely view, massive rooms, and super kingsize beds! It was like sleeping on a cloud! Rick stein needs to come to swan hill house and learn a lot! Amazing would recommend the swan hill house to anyone! Breakfast is definitely five stars and the chef really knows how to wow his guests! Homemade biscuits in the room, homemade chocolate on departure! Wow absolutely top notch!

Hi and thanks for the great review, we are flattered! We do hope you enjoyed the bistro and Padstow and hope it gave you some culinary ideas that you can use at work. Hope to see you both in the future if you are down visiting your friends. Simon & Libby

Having booked 4 nights in July on the strength of Trip Advisor ratings, we were not disappointed.
I can only reiterate a lot of the comments already made, so if you want to stay in a B&B where you are served breakfast made from local produce, little touches like a welcoming pot of tea and cake. fresh milk and water in your room, and some homemade fudge to take home, this is the place for you!
Simon and Libby are perfect hosts too.

Room Tip: Although we didn't see the other rooms, I don't think you would go far wrong with any of the...

We stayed here for 1 night and were not disappointed. The tea and cake upon arrival was a lovely thought. Our room was spacious, clean and had everything you could need. There was fresh milk and bottled water in the fridge and a vast range of teas and coffees. There was even some lovely home made flapjack! Breakfast was superb - a wide range of juices, fresh fruits, joghurt, cereals etc. We both enjoyed a wonderful "fry-up" which used local produce. The owners were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. Upon leaving, we were even given some home made fudge. We would defiantly recommend.

We spent a night here in May 2012 and everything about Swan Hill House was fantastic. The food was great, especially the home made Ginger Cake! The room was lovely with a view to die for. Simon and Libby were great hosts and we will definately be back again next year.

We stayed here for a few days last Easter and were very pleased. The owners are lovely and make delicious and distinctive breakfasts that always set us up for a long day of walking along the coastal paths and kept us going until we got back and had a great dinner in the Wheelwright Arms just down the road.
The room wasn't especially big (we booked late so may not have got the best one) but it didn't feel small and was very nicely decorated and spotless, with great biscuits!
If we visit the area again we'll definitely stay at Swan Hill House.

We stayed at Swan Hill House for four days and didn't want to leave. We were welcomed and shown to our room by Simon. Our room had lovely views over the Axe Valley. The room itself was beautifully decorated and immaculate (as was the rest of the house). The fridge contained fresh milk and water which was replenished daily. The bed was soooo comfortable and that coupled with the top quality bedding made it difficult to leave it in the morning. Breakfast, served by Libby was excellent and the dining room was beautiful with crisp white linen tablecloths and napkins and fresh flowers on each table. There is a very comfortable lounge with extensive reading material. The whole place has a light and airy feel and a homely atmosphere. I cannot praise Simon and Libby enough. They are warm, friendly and professional. They obviously love their house and their work and have a great eye for detail. We are lucky enough to have a relative in the town so we will definitely be back. We have stayed in other establishments in the area but this is THE place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 5. We were lucky enough to be shown a couple of other rooms which were also beauti...
