“It really is a home from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

Sorry not to be more inventive but the previous reviewer says it all. A delightful B&B run by a delightful couple. Wonderful breakfasts to set you up for the day. The Jays is in the centre of a busy village but still exudes an air of calm and quiet. Having previously sampled food at both village pubs we were not keen to repeat the experience so went to the Golden Lion at Tipton St John where we had an excellent meal.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2011

Jan and John were brilliantly welcoming hosts and run a really great B&B. You get a comfortable room, delicious breakfast (made to order by John) and free WiFi.
I chose this B&B as it was relatively close to Escot Park in Devon, home of The Levellers' Beautiful Days festival. John very kindly drove me to the Festival each day after breakfast and then picked me up late each evening, which in my view was above and beyond any "call of duty". John is also involved with Exeter Rugby Club having been a player and teacher - so rugby fans will find a kindred spirit! I really felt that I was at home while away from home, so I recommend this friendly B&B/Guest House very strongly.

Room Tip: All rooms have colour TV and use of shared bathroom
