Honeysuckle Cottage Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 1 Westleigh B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 May 2014

This was our second stop on the Devon C2C cycle route and after a dampish slog up from Tavistock it was a joy to be greeted with such enthusiasm and a fantastic freshly baked cake with copious reviving cuppas! (The remains of the cake went down well the following day too!) Fantastically situated for the Tarka Trail. Also the Westleigh Arms is literally a couple of paces away and the food on offer there is pretty good. You would have to go a long way to find another location so cycle friendly. Spacious rooms, views over the estuary and modern bathrooms.
Ann and Rob are just so enthusiastic about their B&B and really want to get everything just right - even the homemade breakfast marmalade! Wheat free and dairy free diet? No problem either!
A real gem!

We are already trying to find a time to come back... What an amazing place to stay and a wonderful couple as hosts... A warm welcome, lots of advice and tips, very friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, laid back and keen to hear of our travels too...We could not have asked for more.

Breakfast was spot on! (And comes with a fabulous view) As was the tea and most heavenly cake on arrival!!!!

Being only just off the Tarka Trail the B&B was perfect for our coast to coast trip. Unfortunately as we were staying Easter Sunday the local pub (just a few steps away) was not doing evening meals. This, however, was not a problem as it was a lovely 20 minute walk to Instow (On the Tarka) where there is a great choice (or so it seemed we only had one night to experience) and the Instow Arms did not fail to please with friendly service and great food! (We did book and glad we did)

As recommended, when we left, we stopped at Instow, took the ferry to Appledore and had a wander (too early to sample the chips but we did buy some chocolate to take with us) before coming back to Instow and continuing to Fremington for lunch (yes the day did seem to revolve around food but it was too good to miss).

Almost forgot to mention the quality of the rooms – hard to find fault, in fact we can’t... Beautiful, comfortable, immaculate and relaxing – only stopped one night but did not want to leave!

We don’t really want to share this gem but it would be selfish not to!

What a lovely place to stay. We walked in on a cold, damp December day to be greeted with sherry and mince pies in the"snug" complete with Christmas tree - bliss! The rest of our stay was just as good with a beautiful room and excellent breakfasts. Ann and Rob were very welcoming and entertaining. We will be back!

Everything about this place is wonderful. Cosy room, welcoming and lovely owners. Had a great cake baked for us and a brilliant breakfast. Pub is a stone throw away which is a highlight. We have stayed here twice and will soon be back again to see Eric, Ann and Rob and to buy some homemade jam which is a must!!!

Arrived as strangers but left as friends. We were hardly through the door before a pot of tea and large slice of cake were put in front of us. We could not have had a warmer welcome and immediately felt "at home". Nothing was ever too much for Ann and Rob. The accommodation was spotless and there was everything you could ever want for breakfast.... and more! Ann and Rob are brilliant hosts. We didn't want to leave!

Most friendly BB run by delightful and helpful couple who obviously enjoy their job !
Situated close by the South West Coastal Path I stayed overnight with my walking companion and were most impressed by the offer of home made cake and tea / coffee upon arrival with two slices given to us when departing the next morning. Our evening meal was taken at the excellent local pub literally just across the road so ideal after walking all day on the Coastal Path

At £35 p p my pal and I shared a clean, well furnished, comfortable twin room with en-suite , large flat screen TV / tea / coffee making and Full English Braekfast [ home baked bread !! ] we felt this was good value for our hard earned money and would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: All the rooms up to the same high standard as far as I am aware.
