“Spillers Farm July 2013”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

We had a lovely few days away at Spillers Farm in beautiful hot weather and would recommend it to everyone. We particularly enjoyed the combination of staying in a farm/countryside location while having a beach holiday - we spent the days swimming at Beer and Branscombe, both superb beaches. Keith and Bridget are perfect B&B hosts and have a delightful set-up. The room is bright, airy and spacious. We felt very at home but with plenty of privacy. The lake and animals are a great bonus - I have never cuddled sheep before and fell in love with these ones, with their gorgeous distinctive faces.

What a treat my sister and I had, we were booked on a course at River Cottage and this was perfectly placed for that and more. Bridget and Keith were so welcoming and we felt relaxed and at home straight away. We were also welcomed on arrival by Merryck, a gorgeous retriever dog, and Silla the cat. The rooms are immaculate and breakfast delicious, especially the home-produced sausages and bacon, my sister is a vegetarian and Keith made something equally delicious for her. The B&B is a small-holding and we really enjoyed walking round, meeting the various animals, Marlene the pig who enjoyed a mud bath while we were there to keep cool. The lake is a perfect place to sit and relax but make sure you say hello to the lambs on the way.
The B&B is ideally placed for travelling round the region, close to Lyme Regis and the lovely village of Beer. Keith helped recommend local walks, tips for places to park and best places to eat.
Lots of little touches make this B&B a cut above the rest. But its the passion and enjoyment that Keith and Bridget obviously get from Spillers that was apparent from the start and it was a real treat to share in that for a long weekend.
We both said we would definitely be going back and we'll certainly be recommending the place to friends and family.

My sister and I stayed here on a last minute break for a night. We were incredibly happy with the clean, well equipped, comfortable twin room with all the facilities you could possible want. Very comfy beds and we both slept really well! The bathroom is also very nice.

The owners, Keith and Bridget, are fantastically friendly and helpful, going out of their way to make sure we had the perfect stay. They can recommend different local places that are nice for a visit and welcome you to walk round to see their animals and expanse of lush land. (The bottle fed lambs were so cute and friendly!)

Breakfast was great, home grown produce and tasty sausages. There's also lovely home made jams.

The setting is idyllic and the whole stay was excellent, I would not hesitate to go back.

We booked Spillers for location and nothing else. I didn't do any research so wasn't sure what to expect.
What an amazing place! Keith and Bridget were so welcoming that we felt at home straight away. The rooms are bright and clean and the beds super comfy, I slept really well. The breakfast was great and cooked to order and nothing was too much trouble for our fantastic hosts. As a big animal lover I was delighted to find that the animals at spillers are happy to meet and greet the guests too! Keith took time out to introduce us to the newly hatched chicks and the lovely Marlene, I've never seen such a contented pig. The sheep round by the lake enjoy a scratch behind the ear and will tell you off if you stop before they're ready! Merryck is such a friendly dog and likes to play and sila the cat is happy to sleep.

We are planning to head back early September- it was that good!

Keith and Bridget are great people and you have to admire and respect their integrity, I would highly recommend Spillers Farm to anyone.

We had three absolutely lovely days staying with Keith & Bridget. We came for a River Cottage course and booked Spillers farm without realising the idyllic place it is. Keith and Bridget took great care of us, and we really felt at home. We had the "Kingsize" room, and it was very comfortable. A bright airy room with an enormous kingsize bed, and a fridge( including fresh milk and filter coffee, something you'd never find in a hotel chain)
Breakfast came from Keith's own reared animals, and we just had to take some of the bacon and sausages home they were so good.
The farm was open to stroll around, and we loved it so much we decided to sit by the lake and enjoy a beer and a glass of wine on our last night, rather than out for dinner.
They provided a comprehensive list of places to eat, which was really helpful, and their knowledge of local towns, walks, shopping, and places of interest made our visit a rich experience. Keith even showed us how to get the best from our Aga with a few tips and tricks whilst cooking on his.
Without any doubt we will go back soon. We came away feeling we had made new friends.
A great place!
