We arrived on a rainy Friday afternoon to a warm welcome, and instantly felt at home in this peaceful residence. Our rooms were at the top of an impressive Victorian spiral staircase and were charming with their French toile decor. Very clean, tidy and a well stocked tea/coffee/hot chocolate and biscuit selection. You can ask for any extras and nothing is too much trouble for the owners Heather and Pete, although there was more than enough for us. The breakfast, which is always important for me, was excellent and very substantial, you can select from a buffet of cereals, fruit, yoghurts and juices before placing an order for cooked breakfasts. Heather, who is delightful, will appear to take your order and return with an abundance of toast, large pots of tea and steaming coffee, all this before the main event of a well cooked full English breakfast, I had the vegetarian option every day and was full until it was time for a Devon cream tea in the afternoon, just what you need to set you up for exploring the pretty villages in this area. The highlight for me was the Victorian charm of this place and Poppy the glamorous dog (who Heather will bring out to meet you if you ask), as well as Heather and Pete who are very friendly and accommodating. A splendid stay in a traditional seaside town.
