“Nice quiet break”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

New owners had recently taken over a very pleasant house on the road down to the beach. very comfortable and able to use the sitting room to watch tv? wi-fi was a bit hit and miss but you are nearly at the end of England. pub in walking distance which was the social club for Marconi in days of old. breakfast was great with very tasty sausages and plenty of choice on the menu. The place can only improve as the ladies have plans for more rooms and decorating! we will return next year.

Stayed October 2013, travelled with family

This B & B does not have much of a sea view to begin with. It is dated and the rooms are surprisingly small with equally small en suite bathroom. The bath felt more en suite than it should as it felt like it was actually IN the bedroom. Breakfast was acceptable however the fried eggs had uncooked white jiggling unappetizingly on top. It is a lovely old home but needs renovation and redesign.

Stayed here for the one night Tuesday 10th Sept during our walk along the South West coast Path. Great place to stay, really nice room with a warm welcome from the owner. Great breakfast to set us up for the day. Accommodation was excellent value for money ,would recommend it to anyone visiting the area, and I would stay there again.

Greeted by Chris, a very affable host, who was keen to answer my questions on the trials of running a b&b. My room was well appointed with satellite television, but the lcd tv was too high on the wall to be able to see properly. A problem I solved by sticking the door wedge under the back of it. I had a personal bathroom across the landing and was even given a bathrobe, a thoughtful touch. There is an exit dedicated to guests just by this bathroom that opens onto an outside staircase. This staircase is slippery when wet, beware if returning from the pub in the rain. Breakfast was excellent with the hosts starting conversations between the tables.

Stayed for one night whilst walking the coast path. An excellent place to stay. A warm welcome and comfortable rooms with SkyTV and free wifi.
The location is perfect - just a stroll down to the beach and there is off road parking.
A very good breakfast as well.
I have no complaints and would stay here again if in the area

Stayed here for a few nights as I was at the Minack & wanted to explore the area, which is stunning, ideal for a visit to the theatre as only a 10 minute walk or, as I had my disabled mum with me a 2 minute drive. The room was very comfortable, with on suite facilities, although these were a bit small it wasn't a problem. The beds were really comfortable & we had proper pillows, not those awful flat things you normally get. Chis & Deb were very friendly but not in your face, breakfast was well cooked & there was plenty of it. Thoroughly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: If you are slightly on the large size you may struggle with the twin on suite shower but there are s...
