“Third visit - the welcome gets better each time!”
Reviewed 6 October 2011

We absolutely love visiting Graham and Jackie at Southcombe. From the first moment, you feel at home and relaxed and within minutes are chuckling with Graham about anything and everything. Jackie is a wonderful hostess and is so bright and cheery in the morning whilst efficiently serving a first rate breakfast. We love the way Graham and Jackie get everyone chatting - so effortless and fun.
We look forward to many more visits in the future.
Thanks so much. :)

Room Tip: We like the front bedrooms as they have a seating area in the bay window. Very comfortable.

We spent 3 nights late September on way to and from Cornwall. Our first b&b for 30 years. We travelled down from Essex and were bowled over by the welcome, even though we were an hour early. Graham and Jackie are such friendly funny people we felt like we had known them for years. The rooms were spotless, the garden amazing, and the food teriffic. I would thoroughly recommend a stay. There is a great atmosphere and much laughter. Hope to return next year.

Clean,comfortable, friendly, what else could you ask for. At Southcombe you get all of this and more. With Graham at the helm, be prepared for an enjoyable experience. We were sorry not to have met Jackie who was in hospital at the time of our stay. Sue who was helping out during Jackies absence was amazing, nothing was to much trouble.

Breakfast was a great experience, with Graham making a appearance at the end to greet everyone in his own distinctive manner which usually ended in raw cuss laughter.

The only down side was the fact that our room did not have much of a view, but still very comfortable.

We will hopefully be returning for 4 days in October 2011. Looking forward to seeing Graham and Jackie then

Would recommend Southcombe B&B to anyone

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights BBEM, the accommodation was first rate, everything was spotlessly clean, the food was to "die for" both Graham's breakfasts and Jackie's evening meals were of an excellent culinary standard and we thoroughly enjoyed them. The price we paid was superb VFM. The hosts Graham & Jackie are both faultlessly friendly and helpful. My wife is disabled and has recently had major spinal surgery, as a result she cannot do stairs very well and we need a ground floor twin room, Graham went out of his way to be supportive and helpful offering us an annexe that they have below their own accommodation, this suited us perfectly. Also Jackie offered my wife the use of her mobility scooter to go into town one day, these little touches of help and friendliness are priceless and speak volumes about them both. All in all OUTSTANDING!! will definitely be going back in the future, THANK YOU GRAHAM & JACKIE

Room Tip: Speak to Graham he is very helpful
