Reviewed 18 August 2014

Having stayed here before, we knew exactly what to expect, private parking, good food etc. So this time while visiting the area with friends we had no hesitation in hoping we could get a couple of rooms at fairly short notice. Luck was on our side and when we arrived we were greeted with a pot of tea and some wonderful homemade ginger cake. Both rooms were clean, large and airy, our friends had the newly refurbished room one on the ground floor while we were upstairs in room seven. Everything you could have wanted was there plus more, all bathroom toiletries including flannels, shower caps etc. The tea and coffee tray had a great selection along with home made almond biscuits and the bonus of a fridge not only with fresh milk, but water, and soft drinks. Bottle opener and glasses are also supplied (but unfortunately not the wine!!) Wonderfully comfortable beds. And as for the breakfast, nothing can compare, plenty of choice, all wonderfully cooked, no complaints at all. AND a specials board. Again a massive thank you to Simon and Libby for making our stay so enjoyable, you have another convert to your B & B in our friends. A great thank you also for the chocolate fudge on our departure, we will definately be back and recommend to our friends. .

Room Tip: Any one will do, they are all great

Can't fault it. Excellent from the tea and homemade cake on arrival, best breakfast, beautiful room with a very comfortable bed, and really helpful and friendly hosts. Would recommend dining at the River Cafe canteen in Axminster and The Holt in Honiton.
Thank you Simon and Libby

My wife and I usually go for hotels but went here with friends on their recommendation and it's changed our perspective . The rooms were unusually decorated and furnished and immaculately prepared whilst the breakfast choice and quality was excellent. Simon was also well versed in local restaurants and a source of great advice on choosing where to eat in the evenings

In the area on business and found SWH via Tripadvisor.
From greeting, to room and superb breakfast, it was excellent.
A lot of thought and detail has been put in by the hosts...and it shows !
Simon and Libby are great hosts and they really care.

A brilliant place to stay! Lovely breakfasts, and spotless rooms! After a long journey, I was welcomed with a lovely cup of tea and a piece of gorgeous apple cake! Simon and Libby are great hosts, and I hope to stay here again soon!

We were fortunate to have chosen Swan Hill House for our stay in SW England while visiting River Cottage HQ. The accommodation was first class in every aspect and Simon and Libby could not have been friendlier hosts. The selection available for breakfast was extensive and of the best quality produce, expertly prepared by Simon we wish we had bigger appetites to fit more of it in. Swan Hill House is excellent value for money and easily our favourite accommodation in 6 weeks of holidaying.
