Before I start my review, I want to emphasize to anyone out their who is dubious about travelling to the South West after the awful storms - DEVON IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!!! Yes, there are a few places that you can see are badly damaged from the flooding, but from the news you'd think that the whole of the South West is feet under water.
Anyway, back to the Daylesford. What a lovely, cosy, immaculate b&b. We stayed in the Junior Suite as we were drawn by the fact it had its own little sitting area. Whilst room is quite small, it was spotlessly clean, the bed and pillows were comfortable and joy of joys, the heating was on! Can't tell you the number of places we've stayed and the owners will not put the rads on. Water was piping hot too.
As other reviewers have said, Jane and Martin are lovely hosts - friendly without being overbearing which is just what I want when I stay somewhere. Breakfast was delicious - if you don't want full English there are lighter options, and also you can mix and match.
I've given an overall rating of four due to the fact that there are only showers available, which wasn't a problem for four nights, but any longer and I would be crying out for a soak.
I would definitely stay there again for a short break, it's such good value for money.
