“The best of the channel vista”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

Superb service, friendly happy place to be spending time and better still, the dog came too! The service was excellent, smiles and laughter with the warmest welcome. Fabulous breakfast menu and fresh cooked muffins & evening meals on request. The best value for money we have spent in a long time. I would highly recommend this guest house.

We stayed here for 1 night having walked the first 3 days of the South West Coastal Path. We were made very welcome in spite of them being in the middle of redecorating. Nice big room with a good shower. Extraordinarily good value evening meal cooked by Clive. The strawberry pavlova was particularly good. Good breakfast. We would recommend this B&B to anyone and make sure you book Clive's cooking (£12 for main course, dessert and coffee) - why go anywhere else? McPhee (the dog) will make you very welcome too.

If you want a no frills B & B at a reasonable price with the added advantage of an evening meal you would be hard pressed to find better than this B & B. Clive & Linda know the meaning of customer service & hospitality, thank you for a great nine day stay

Room Tip: We had rooms 2 & 3 see photos on web site

Yes it may be a bit old fashioned and a bit tired round the edges, but it's an excellent B & B, small rooms and en-suites but good showers and plenty of hot water, much needed if you are a coastal path user.. Good breakfast and super optional dinner. Unreal value, good local produce well cooked and presented, this really is a dinner for the hungry, mountains of great veg, and seductive sweets. No commercially imported sweets here. All day "honesty bar" useful
A minor increase in investment in small things, tea bags, toiletries and toilet paper would round things off, but this is a minor cavil in an otherwise great value stay..

Practically right on the SW Coast Path which we were walking this is a really good place to stay. We were made very welcome on our arrival. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was comprehensive and well-presented. We were able to leave our bags to collect later and special arrangements were made so that we could. Strongly recommended whether walking or not.

I stayed here for 3 nights and wished I could've stayed longer. The room was clean and comfortable and I was made to feel extremely welcome by Clive, Linda and McPhee!
Breakfast was delicious and certainly kept me going till dinner time. I had also booked evening meals which I can only describe as amazing. I nearly had to crawl upstairs as the food was just too good.
The beach is only a few minutes walk away and I think it is ideally based for many of the North Devon attractions.
I will certainly be visiting again!

Thank you for your lovely comments. We really appreciate that you have taken the time to write a review. Clive is trying to train McPhee to wait at table - dont think it will work somehow. We would love to see you again in the future.

We got to Combe Martin late and got their last room. The hotel was dated but very clean and comfortable. The owners were fantastic and made us very welcome. Local information was not a problem and the next mornings breakfast turned into a talk fest with the other guests.
The breakfast quality was very good with great local produce with great flavours.
