“Picture postcard perfect”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

When we arrived we were welcomed warmly by Chris and Carol with some greatly appreciated tea and made to feel at home. An impressive home at that.

The Pines at Eastleigh is just 5 minutes from Instow on the picturesque North Devon coast. The extensive grounds were beautifully kept as was the clean, well appointed accomodation. Breakfast was generous, fresh and locally sourced. It was also courteously served.

The Pines was a refreshing contrast from formula hotels and B&Bs and I would recommend it highly.

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

A little off the beaten track but very close to everything, we were pleased as punch with ourselves that we found this hidden treasure.
As a family of three (one child) and three small dogs, it is difficult to find anywhere that will accommodate us as a family with mum, dad, their little dog, and brother and sister with their families and little dog. But we need look no further. With the varied types of accommodation, we can all be together as well as separate. A cottage, converted stables, as well as a beautiful Hotel, we could even all get together for a Christmas break here. We loved the warm friendly welcome, the attention to detail and helpful, sincere way that Carol and Chris told us about the area and what we might be able to do locally and further afield. We have already booked to stay again and love the beautiful gardens, the views and the pretty cottage we stayed in. We had a lovely time and would highly recommend The Pines at Eastleigh. Thank you, Chris and Carol.

Room Tip: We stayed in Vine Cottage and four of us with four small dogs enjoyed a lovely break.

Came down to Westleigh for a wedding and was lucky enough to stay here. The room was new and had everything you needed. The main house is in the process of being done up and am sure it will be a success when completed. The weather was lousy but clearly it was a nice setting. What stood out to me was the service. Without being in your way, Chris & Carol made sure they were available and helpful about booking cabs and even dropped me off at my car the next day! Breakfast was good aswell. Thanks for putting up with us!

Our weekend stay at the Pines was just what we needed. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the recent renovations have brought the already comfortable accomodation up to a high spec (we loved the underfloor heating in the bathroom).
The hosts Chris and Carol have obviously worked very hard to bring The Pines up to date whilst maintaining the character of the property. Breakfast was lovely and they gave us the impression that nothing was too much trouble
Although the Pines feels very rural it is a quick car journey to Bideford, the Beach at Instow and Barnstable.
The views of the surrounding countryside from the Pines are breathtaking and you can see the lights of Bideford twinkling in the distance. A truely relaxing break, we will definitely be back again. Thank you!

The Pines at Eastleigh is excellent. It is set in a wonderful rural location, and the welcome is genuine and friendly. Everything is clean, comfortable and excellent quality. We can't recommend it enough.

We stayed about a month ago with my wife and daughter in vine cottage (also with sammy our jack russel) and with my mum in the converted stables. Upon arrival we were greeted by yanich. A very warm welcome as he showed us around to our accommodation. The cottage was immaculate and very well equipped as was the single room for mother. Breakfast was superb with very good local produce and cooked fresh to order.

Our daughter loved our time away and sammy enjoyed the many acres of land the pines has to offer. So a huge thankyou to all at the pines for making our stay excellent, we shall see you next year

The rooms were quite small and the bathrooms even smaller. Although a Kingsize bed was advertised, we found the beds were just small doubles. Whilst the service was OK, it was very impersonal and a bit regimented. My wife and I did not feel happy here and left after two days

Room Tip: If one is looking for a rural and quiet location, this may be a good choice.
