Wanted a good stopover near the coast in east Devon .
Did all the cross-ref. inc Michelin, Swallows Eaves had to be the best
bet. It lived up to all reports; it’s quiet, lays back off the main road in its own grounds with easy parking. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful.
Our en suite ‘Superior twin’ - not enormous but very comfortable.
Its simple but tasty decor normally found for less than £140 pn. though.
The big surprise was its restaurant. Whatever you do, don’t underestimate
this place. Go out of your way before this truly gifted young chef moves on somewhere! The restaurant is called Reed’s.
